If you change your mind, there are plenty of sports bars in LA that will show the Texans game

I'm pumped about next season. Can't wait to see what changes the new coach makes.

Nothing much really. I'll watch and cheer like always. I guess the only thing that will change is I will have no expectations. I was really high on this year's team and honestly felt we could be in the Superbowl to represent the AFC. With those expectations came a rather hard crash with how this team is playing this season. So I'll just enjoy the guys and go week by week instead of having my head wrapped around 'Superbowl or Bust'. But I won't stop watching and supporting...even if they make me cuss like a sailor.

What will change? Nothing. The current coaches will be fired and we'll all be excited about a new staff... then free agency will hit and we'll watch excitedly because no one knows what the new coaches will do. When the draft gets here the usual suspects will have learned as much as they can about the coaches - their systems - skill sets at specific positions, etc. After an eternity, training camp will be here and we'll be "all in."

What will change? Nothing. We'll buy snake oil from the new regime like we have with the last 2. And we will continue to wait for a championship.

I kind of expected that if I lived long enough I would find something that you and I could agree on.

Default Re: What will change for you as a fan next season?

After being an Oiler fan from the very beginning, w/season tickets for several years, it was rather a relief when they left and my Sundays were not ruined. I actually found other things to do and after a short time I forgot all about pro football. It was enjoyable. I will not get in that situation again.

I lost interest in the Texans team this year. Maybe an off season will erase the disgust I feel right now.

I am not such a fan that I will accept such ineptitude, watch or go to the games and say rah rah rah. Not in my makeup anymore.

I guess what I am trying to say is that my life, away from pro football, is not that boring.

Not trying to slam Texan fans for being fans. To each his/her own.

Guess I am just not all in.

Nothing will change for me as well. I will make my annual pre-dawn drop behind Utah Beach and prey to God I link up with the 4th Division before sundown.

Btw, this year it's been almost three months and still no sign of that 4th Division.

Spent the day with my niece and didn't think about football at all. Once she settled down for a nap, I hopped on here and read through the gameday thread. sounds like I didn't miss a thing. Thanks for the reinforcement, Texans!

You missed the Texans playing on Sunday, JJ and Mercilus made some plays.

That will always be enough for me to watch, I didn't enjoy watching most the game but I always enjoy watching the Texans play football, even if when they suck it isn't nearly as fun.

Yep....thats a symptom of them dag gum fairweathered fans....you dont want to watch your team live.....so you can do other things that you think are more important.....
Real fans dont make excuses for not watching a game live.....unless it is a emergency....thats just lame if you ask me.....real lame.....

Was wondering when they would start falling off.....lol....

Nothing! I will continue to work hard so that I can pay for my two team season tickets. I'm one of those type of fans that will endure the frustrations, and the eternal optimist that somewhere in the future this too, shall pass. It's very possible for the Texans and also for the return of the Cowboys.

The following was written in 1990. The Cowboys are a joke. Have you seen the new ABC comedy? Thirtysomething, Cowboys 0, Know why Jerry Jones bought the Cowboys? He wanted to get as far as possible from professional football, Did you hear the Cowboys are going to play Southern Methodist-The Cowboys need the practice and SMU needs the win. Of course the tide did turn for a few years, and I still expect it to happen again.

The Texans had some very harsh years as well, and made some very impressive winning seasons. I expect that to return in the not too distant future. I think for those who hung in there, thick and thin will delight in the rewards. It's just something different in the emotional state in championships after enduring the hardships before the prize.
