Tickets I can see, the parking increase is simply too high a % to easily justify.

There is no reason to be raising the Parking prices IMO! I'm ok with the Ticket price increase.

PS....The Platinum increase is only $50 - from $350 to $400.

The fancy folks who arrive late want to eliminate the riff-raff from their parking lot. All those tents, grills, and damn kids running around encumber their access to their parking spaces.

A few strongly worded phone calls to the Texans front office and a tidy $100 increase request from the Grey-Poupon crowd should clear out a bit more space for them.

They have to pay the lot attendants that are forced to stand in threes, the guy who checks your hangtag 20 feet after you get it scanned and the guy that has to look for you in the tailgate to check your tag in the platinum lot even though the spaces are assigned (if there is someone parking in the wrong spot, they will stand out like a sore thumb). Also, the cop that raced through the platinum lot needs new tires after burning the treads off the golf cart.

They did such a wonderful job last year that they want a pay hike.

I wanna see a show of hands here.

Who here thought the Texans would not raise the prices one bit this year?


They raised the Bull Pen seats $4.00 a game. wow

I think raising the parking prices $5.00 a game is a bit much and the Texans will hear it.

When you say it like that - $4 here, $5 there - it doesn't sound like much. But it sure adds up quick.

Hey, what I miss is the police officer who stood out on Kirby, and would get you a clean shot out of the parking lot straight to 610. Now they close that exit early.

I have THREE words to say about the parking price increase! PISSES ME OFF!! Yes, I think GW got it right. The powers that be would like to have the entire Platinum area for their suit and high heel bunch! Eventually, they will succeed. $50 a game to just PARK!!!!!! At that rate I think we should be allowed all night tailgating!!!!

When you put it that way, it is mind-boggling.

I can think of no other industry that consistently raises prices after a perpetual bad product. Seriously, we've never had a winning season after six years, but our prices keep increasing. I really hate to think how much of an increase a winning season, much less playoff appearance, will be.
