Why not set off the cannon? That thing is loud.

Or have the folks on segues ride around blowing a siren.

Football fanatics don't need no stinkin' air horn.

oh, wait, y'all are trying to get a majority of fans into the stadium by kickoff. My bad.

Simple way to get more people in the seats for kickoff:

1. Put a better product on the field. Already happening.

2. Install wide, fast escalators directly to the 500-600-700 level. Walking the ramps is insane as they aren't steep enough. The lines for the escalators are WAY to long. I've been to MANY NFL stadiums and Reliant's upper deck is one of THE WORST, actually THE WORST I've ever seen for ingress. Egress is OK but only via the stairs. This can be done easily if Jamey Rootes would make it a priorty. McNair would pay if he knew the true value.

3. Don't lets thousands of non-Club Level tickets holder in the Club. It's too easy to get there and it's too nice for some not to be lured in. Once they enter the club, their actual non-club seats will never be filled during the game. Club level tickets should be scanned in and out at the club entrance, just like the front gate. This way it wouldn't be so easy for 10 people to get into the club with 2 club tickets. This can be done easily.

4. Shut down the entire Club Level. Not likely.

This is the response that I received:

Quote:
Thank you for your email and support of the Houston Texans! We appreciate your feedback and ideas to get fans to enter the Stadium early. We are currently evaluating different ways to encourage fans to enter the Stadium early. We currently do have a drawing called The Houston Texans Early Arrival Sweepstakes and it awards fans who arrive at the game early for a chance to win tickets from Continental Airlines. To win, your game ticket must be scanned 30 minutes prior to kickoff and you must be in your seats at the time of the drawing. The winners are announced during the game and shown on the Video Board. The Pep Band also announces in Bud Plaza that it is almost gametime to start entering as well as the Bare Necessity Band. We have forwarded your email to the appropriate contact in the Marketing department. Thank you and have a great day!
So there you go.

Apparently, unless you have a sponsor to go with your idea, it won't sell with the Texans.

I'm tell'in ya, Bob is one hell of a business man!

I found a sponsor...

We call it, "Get in Your Seat for the Kickoff Day Sponsored by David Carr". DC is going to return the $8,000,000 bonus he stole from the Texans in 2006. McNair is going to offer every fan a chance to claim their share of the refund. He's a good guy that way. Everyone who is in their seat at kickoff for the Indy game will get $115 ($8,000,000 / 69,500) in cash.

Sound like a plan???
