I already purchased Jags-Cowboys from the NFL website just so I don't have to pay the StubHub prices later this year. I moved here in July and it was too late to get anything other than scalper prices, so I'm excited about getting to go this year.

Mind you, I'm no expert, but it's MY opinion that if you win by two points in a game where the refs publicly admit the f'ed up...and you have the remainder of a 7 game series to play...unless the refs plan to intentionally sodomize the other team...your "LUCK" will run out.

Just for you foreigners (and by foreigners, I mean you folks from abroad, interested in the Texans - which I appreciate), the other day marked "San Jacinto"........... The day Texas and "Texans" became independent of then Mexican tyranny and became its own Republic.

I agree, but I wasn't talking about the Rockets. I was talking about the move of the Sacramento Kings to Seattle, which was fended off last year

I went to a Pats-Jets game. However, I didn't like the Pats and their fans. I don't have a real connection to any other US city. So I watched a lot of football last season and even though the Texans weren't "that great", I really started to like that team and to cheer for them.

Nice to meet you guys and best wishes from across the pond!

Never going to happen for me !!

Been watching Houston since early 80's and my fist live game will only ever be Houston.
For me it would be like cheating on my wife.

Even if London acquired its own team in the NFL I would never support it.
That is what NFL suits don't understand us UK fans are loyal to our teams.

As soon as I get a spare 2,000 I will be over to watch a game and put on 20lbs eating at the tailgate.

I understand loyalty. Being from San Antonio originally, my first team is the Spurs, and our fan base has an unofficial link up with Tottenham. I really wanted to root for them, but I live in Cobham where Chelsea has their training grounds. Several players live around me and their kids go to the American school with my daughter. And her BFF's dad works for ManU. I'm going to stick with rugby!

I'm only here on assignment for a few years, and I really regret not seeing any of the games here last season. I've been to my fair share of Texans games before moving here last year, but I jumped at the chance to be able to see the Cowboys.

I root for my teams first (Texans, Spurs, Longhorns) and then any other team from Texas. Especially since they are playing a division rival in the Jags, who the NFL is trying to make the hometown team for London. The "Union Jax" fan club is *really* annoying!

You'd be surprised. I only started watching the Texans properly during the 2005 2-14 season - and chose Houston mostly because all of the international fans of the Premier League gravitated towards Manchester United and the other big successful clubs.

So I thought, screw being a fair weather fan and jumping on the Pats bandwagon - I'm going to sign up for a decade or more of abuse!
