No, the Texans don't intentionally do BUT they don't do anything to encourage markets in a 300 mile radius to show Texans games either. The difference here, and you may not be familiar with how marketing works, is Jerry Jones wines and dines his affiliates, his marketing departments invites the GMs and program Directors to Dallas and they're well taken care of. Jerry takes his training camp to San Antonio and makes a special effort to take care of and include the local media. Bob on the other hand doesn't really do anything at all. In the last 5 years I can recall one time when a Texans bus that included some cheerleaders making the rounds thru south Texas and the valley. San Antonio is 7th largest city in the country and only 180 miles from Houston. The fact the the Texans DO NOT have more presence, fans and support in San Antonio is directly related to the lack of support the Texans show San Antonio. It's called Marketing. Your apology has been accepted in advance.

Just to let you know I called the CBS program director directly. What I told you is what he told me. Common sense says that the 7th largest city in the country (San Antonio) that is only 180 miles from Houston would/should be part of Texans broadcast territory. Austin is 150 miles from Houston, basic common sense it's a Houston market. And it is, now. FYI because of the VY crap I cancelled my Time Warner cable and switched to DirecTV to get Sunday ticket so I could watch the Texans.

Austin and San Antonio have been Cowboys dominated markets since long before McNair was even sniffing the NFL.

Yep and the texans are not going to send buses of cheerleaders and players where they don't have merchandise sales. It's marketing

Come out here and tell me that. Houston fans are spoonfed, period. McNair leaves us because he makes his money from you guys who pour money into his account regardless of his product. Same old ****. Rah Rah.

I know, "Cak. You were here...blah blah...blah...

Personally, I love us Texans not in the Houston area, we deal with it, not you guys.

No doubt about that and I never said they weren't. However Dallas is a Fox market and the Texans are a CBS market. The Cowboys and Texans only conflict once or twice a year and this year there was no conflict. Therefore Austin and San Antonio are both markets for the Texans on CBS. So while Dallas is playing on FOX, NBC, ESPN or the NFLN it is not unusual for CBS to ignore the Houston Texans in San Antonio when they're only 180 miles away......but you probably know this......you may not be aware that they don't show Cowboy games on FOX and CBS at the same time on Sundays in San Antonio?

Seems to be doing pretty well for a guy who only cares about marketing, not winning, and then sucks at marketing.

I have a nephew who lives and works in Austin and he's a Texan fan, probably mainly because of my influence. But he told me his friends in Austin are virtually all Cowboy fans, even the ones from Houston, and my nephew tells me they "feel sorry" for Texan fans and this was last year, before the Texans 2013 collapse. I don't understand that mentality ? The Cowboys just failed again to get reach the POs and haven't been there for 5 or 6 years, basically an average franchise for 20 years. Puzzling to me ?

Me too, I don't understand how anyone can be a Cowboy fan as long as Jerry Jones owns the team. Unless of course they just love the misery. However Jerry does understand marketing.

So, "I can't understand Cowboys fans because they are fans even when their team sucks."

Love the irony of two Houston fans not getting this when a common Houston allegation against Dallas fans is they are bandwagon fans.

No one said McNair wasn't doing well by having a team in the 4th largest city in the USA. There is no argument there. That doesn't mean that he's also doing a great job in the areas out lying communities. The reality is the Houston Texans have put very little effort in to any community except Houston. It's as if McNair said I'll take Houston and conceded the rest of the state of Texas to the Carnival barker, Jerry Jones.

You usually are much better at picking your battles. I'm a bit surprised you wanted to wade in here with virtually no ammo. Stubbed your toe before you could even walk. You must have had the urge to be argumentative and missing the combative feeling you enjoy so much.

Which is pretty damn stupid. they should at least be marketing like crazy outside Houston. Buy up some billboards and make sure merchandise is in other stores across the state. You have to make your presence known, not just accept defeat...
