I've been hearing about alot of the corporate BS in Blue...not too sure about some of the others though.

I haven't seen ANY corporate folks in Platinum at all, unless you want to call ShinerBock (sp) corp, and they have been there since day one, when we were Blue. Just good old fashioned tailgating with everyone getting along. In fact, I have noticed a lot more individual tailgaters this year than ever before in platinum. A lot of familiies, or just a few good friends setting up tents. I think our group, Raging Bull, Gridiron 6 (I think that's what they are called) are the largest groups in platinum. Wherever you are, whatever you do, whenever you decide to show up, just relax and have a good time with your friends. It should NEVER be about which lot is bigger or better, or which group is the most awesome, or has the best time. It's about good food, good friends, and GREAT football!! (thanks Andy!!)

Yea, my bad!! You can tell I'm not much of a drinker! I still don't understand what the difference is in a BudLite, MillerLite, or a CoorsLite! (sp) off on that also. lol St. Arnold's can't set up until after 10 on Sundays, so I've been told. They do have the best root beer in the Country for sure!! Great bunch of fans! I love going by their tailgate, and they have front row seats in the Bullpen, and rep our Texans with all the passion and excitement you could ask from any fan. They ROCK!!

How about send them to the Blue Suite lot that always seems to have all those empty spaces in it.

I do not think "Corporate" tailgates should have any advantage over any other tailgate when it comes to where they park within the lot. They should have to wait out side the gate just like everyone else.
The only ones who should be let in early are the previous years tailgater of the year. That is my opinion.......

The TexansGameday Ambassadors need to be more assertive on that, as the ones in the Orange lot care for the people.
The book that came with the tickets this year states that there is no saving of spots, use your rights as well as a ticket holder and do what you gotta do. Now I am not saying to be ugly about it, but if you are there first and have the pass and they cannot show you enough passes for the spaces, then have at it !!
No, that's not what Mean Machine is saying. For the Blue Lot, we have to wait out on Kirby til 8am. When they let us in last time, there was a huge tent set up in prime spots that us and our neighbors have been using since day one. It had a fence around it, and it took up 26 spaces. No one showed up til around 10:30, but it was set up well before 8am.
If the Texans want to sell to this big parties, that's great. But, why drop them in on ANY LOT now? There is plenty of space near the old Astroworld site. They would have been just as happy over there.

They should put all the corporate tailgates in there. Right next to the Texican dance club.

I agree, but the cash flow does not.

OK, well I sit corrected... I would be a little PO as well..As Yankee said it is the cash flow that is talking. Keep on the Texans about it, if you stop complaining, then you know the end result. A few years ago in the Orange, Miller Lite had a big setup and were in early, well alot of us complained and told them what we thought and we didn't think anything would have been done being ML is a big sponsor, well the following game, they were set up over in the corner of the Blue Lot. Keep on the Texans for answers at least..Good Luck !

Like Battle Red said, the large setup in the Blue Lot last week was adjacent to Pole 22. I've got some folks in my tailgate group that have tried for years to get Blue Lot parking only to be told by the Texans that the lot is sold out. If that's the case, how can a group come in and purchase 26 spots in a sold-out lot?

Apparently, it's only sold out if you want 1 spot... if you want 26... NO PROBLEM!!
