Post Here ya go TRUE Texans fans, plain and simple.

Let's be honest about something: Nobody here has EVER lived and died with the Texans.

The team is only 5 years old. You can be a fan of the team. You can REALLY want them to win. Nothing the Texans do or don't do however will ever be as painful watching the Oilers collapse against the Chiefs or the Bills.

No play will ever stick in your memory the way the Renfro "catch" does.

Nobody runs around in the front yard at Thanksgiving pretending they're David Carr like we all pretended we were Dan Pastorini.

Yeah we all want them to win and we're all pissed when they lose, but this "true deep down Texan til I die" rhetoric is just that. 20 years from now there will be people like that, but this is basically a rental team for us. Our team is gone and always will be.

I love the logo, I love the name, I love the colors and the whole idea, but it's going to be 30 years before I actually vomit at the end of a game the way I did when we lost to Buffalo.

*****Let's not get carried away with the "new girl". She's nice, but your heart was broken by your first love, and you're kidding yourself if you think many, if any, folks in these parts are as in love with this "second wife" as they were with the first. *****

OK, no.

It take me three days after a loss to cheer up. A piece of me dies every weekend. I live, eat, and breath Texan football. In fact I have plans on putting the robot bull on my left arm as a Tattoo. My child was born last year during the Texan Bi week. I made sure when I got married that it was after football season and no major transactions where going on.(March if you care.)

Sure, your a little bitter after your first wife leaves, thats why you get her sister liquored up and have your way with her.(I was a Steelers fan for a brief period.) Then you find yourself the perfect woman and then realize the scag you were with never cared for you and was cheating on you with that obnoxious neighbor next door.

So you see, its football, its Houston, and despite losing all the time, every things rosey.

I guess I may be unique. I never liked the Oilers. I also never liked any of the teams in California so I became a Texan fan for some odd reason.

So as far as the wife analogy goes, this one is my first.

I don't want to get into a fan measuring contest or anything, but uh, for me personally, I made a pact with God that if Houston was ever able to get a team again, I would never take that team for granted and I would do what I could to support it and help it succeed. This is not hyperbole. This is what happened, whether you think it is foolish or not.

I used to plan everything around my Oiler Sundays. And the hurt and pain when they were gone was worse than any breakup with a guy.

The NFL was dead to me because reading local coverage meant reading about Dallas and TN, and it killed me. NFL football is my favorite favorite favorite sport, and the coverage during those dark years of the NFL just mocked me.

And I really believed the NFL would never let Houston have a team when LA didn't have one. I thought it impossible to get a team here. So when faced with the impossible, you talk to God. (Well, you might talk to God anyways, but sad impossibilities are an especially good reasons).

NFL football isn't just a sport. It is a way that a community can come together no matter where they went to school. There is nothing better than hearing the roar of 70,000 or so people yelling for the same end. (And I have to say the tailgating aspect of the games have been nice to help reinforce that community).

Obviously, the first 5 years hasn't been an easy road as a fan. The Panthers and Jags early success ensured that the rest of the NFL owners wouldn't make it any easier for us. But usually, a lot of the things worth having in life don't come easy.

So, in sum, I disagree with your post. Sometimes you don't truly appreciate things in life until they have been taken away. (especially in a brutally slow, painful humiliating and evil process). I remember what it was like cheering for a winning NFL team, and someday I will experience that again.

I could just pick the winning team du jour, and ride their wagon, but it seems terribly disloyal and not terribly satisfying to me.

My name is on the charter PSL wall, and I am proud to say it is. I like to be a part of building this team, even though my part is small.

YRMV

GO TEXANS!

Default Re: Here ya go TRUE Texans fans, plain and simple.

I was never an Oilers fan, since I moved to Houston between the Oilers and Texans. When the Texans lose, it doesn't effect my life too much; I'm disappointed but my family, friends, job, etc. don't really change.

Some Texans related stuff has had more of an impact to me in a more personal way, but that is unrelated to wins and losses.

Maybe it is age - when I was younger big Spurs losses would bum me out for a couple of hours, but now it is all just entertainment to me. It is nice to get to watch a franchise grow from start-up to wherever it goes though.

Life goes on.

Most of the time, when the Texans lose, I am annoyed/upset/disappointed until at least Wednesday. There are certain losses, however, that have truly left me despondent. The Pats game from 2003, the Rams game from last year are two that come to mind. Your point is taken, as there is not enough history there to really have fostered those deep sentiments yet, but hey, when you were a kid pretending to be Dan Pastorini, how much history did you have in life yet?

Some of us are further down the path of being a die-hard fan than others, and that's OK.

I've thought a lot about that. I think another way to address bandwagoners is to call them NFL fans. Since a fan is a devotee, there is no way they can claim fan status of a team.

I was about 16 years old when the Oilers left town. Before that, they were a pretty worthless team from everything I remember of them.

Basicly.. I never had the time, or desire, to become an Oilers fanboy. The Texans are my first and only NFL team.

Basicly what im saying is that for all of you who were around and coherant in the 70s.. yah, you may have a deep connection to the Oilers, and you may not feel that same connection with the Texans, but dont make the mistake of thinking that most, or even the majority, of Texans fans feel the same way.

I remember wondering why the Oilers, Longhorns, and Cowboys didn't just combine into one big Texan superpower. It was around the same time I watched the Power Rangers.

The Oilers left after the 96 season. They were in the playoffs every year from 87-93. They were pretty worthless from 82-85. They were championship caliber in 79.

Monumental playoff collapses? Yes.
