You are correct but its not just the Texans, very few "sold out" games in any sport mean that every seat is actually occupied.

Attention Texans Fan,
We've identified some seats that are currently available in your section! Do you have enough in 2009? Is there anyone you know that would want to experience all the hard hitting action at a Texans game with you? Now is the time. And remember, special food and beverage incentives exist for those season ticket holders who refer someone who purchases season tickets for 2009.

For more information or to reserve your tickets today call me at ...
I do believe the Texans have sent me a letter and a little card every year asking me if I wanted additional tickets. I think the stadium will be full again if the Texans are winning....if they start off slow again then I think it will be hard to fill. It is only June and I think we need to wait until training camp and the preseason starts before we start to speculate. I don't care if no one shows up...I'LL BE THERE!

Yeah...I agree. I don't think I have ever seen that stadium 100% full except for the very 1st game. I just wonder if we are going to see our first blackout. It won't matter to me as i will be there...but it would suck for others.

Blackouts are bad for business and cast a negative image. I honestly doubt that the Texans' marketing department lets that happen. Plus, the franchise likes to brag about 56 consecutive sell-outs, and that streak would be broken with a blackout.
