Default McClain's plea in the chron today

I found McClain's whining about Texan's fans lack of support for the team very ironic.

In both articles:

link1

link2

The main point is:

Quote:
But if you're a Texans fan and you respect Young, cheer him before and after the game but not during the game. Otherwise, you should be embarrassed to show up at Reliant Stadium.
Hey Big John, why should the fans be any different than you? Regardless of the hard feelings the people of Houston had over the loss of the Oilers to Tenn., we had to endure constant coverage of Bud, Tenn, and everything Titans from you. For the first few years of the Texans, you could not be bothered to write or report anything about the home team. Instead, we were bombarded with constant drivel from you about all the great happenings in Nashville.

On top of that, you have constantly lauded V. Young all during the off season. Up until draft day, you reminded us that V. Young was the greatest player ever to enter the draft. During this season you continued to spend plenty of time constantly reminding everyone of what the fans in Houston were missing out on from VY.

Now, you expect everyone to forget all that you taught us?

You start one article with
Quote:
VY is Bud's guy. Never forget it.
Note to John: "YOU are Bud's boy and we will never forget that".

John writes for a few papers and is on several radio shows weekly. He is no more a Texans fan than you are a Cowboys fan.

Thats amazing is it not?

Is there another reporter anywere in the NFL that cares so much for the Divisional Rival more then McLame does?

What if there was a reporter that loved Phillip Rivers in Oakland and every other week there was a running total and always speaking about Rivers in the Oakland Newspaper, they would not dare cause the guy would probably not be alive long.

I think his point remains the same. I bet there will be alot of so called "Texans" fans at the game who will root for Vince just in spite, etc... and I gotta say... its gonna be very annoying and embarrassing at the same time.

This coming from a Horn fan.

Default Re: McClain's plea in the chron today

some guys are talking about him doing many shows and hes not a texnas beat writer etc. isnt he supposed to be the guy with the inside stuff FOR the texans? he doesnt present himself as a NFL guy like some guys do, he presents himself as the guy with the inside stuff about the texans. SO, i still think hes being a hypocrite.

I'm sure Chron archives would prove you wrong

But yes, I think he's a Titans fan.

There will be alot of Vince fans wearing Longhorn and Titan jerseys to show their support for him. They will also do it as a stubborn little temper tantrum to "get back" at McNair.

We will only have to endure them for one game a year though.

If he wants to jump people who want to cheer Vince, he should be more careful about the "Vince is everything" type of stuff he writes.

mcclain is one of those guys who i just don't like...he's become that guy in the corner of the room who acts like he's your best friend when he's face to face with you and as soon as you turn your back on him he stabbs you...as far as his article goes...i agree with the fact that if your going to the game to cheer the titans on and call yourself a texan fan you should be shot...but coming from him it just sounds like hypocritical b.s.
