Actually, in a case like this, no. When there's a poll, I answer the poll question and then make a reply, and then go through and read all the responses. So... when creating a poll, don't expect people to read the first post before answering it or replying. I think you can tell by a lot of the responses that a lot of people did the same thing.

I will follow the Texans to HELL If I have to. You can't build a history with out loses. Thats when the fans should be the strongest. The reason Green Bay, New York, Philly, etc. have a great history is the fan support. They were bad at times to, heck they are bad now. Support your Texans the wins will come. Will you be ready, I know I will.

I'm in it for the long haul, and will be a Texans fanatic as long as they have "Houston" as part of the name.

But, judging from the empty stands during last season's games, I am in the minority of Houston's fans.

I no longer defend our hometown fans...not after watching an overwhelming number of them sport our enemy's jerseys because of one player, booing our team, and avoiding attending games that were already paid for. This town of 3 million+ probably has about 30,000 true Texans fans (through thick and thin). The rest of the population are front runners and band-waggoners. We are not a 'sports town' in the traditional sense.

Support, As in buying tickets and attending the games. More specific Arizona Cardinals < When will our fans support us like theirs do .

Never giving up on the Texans. They're our team and quitting on them would just prove that you were never a true fan. We all and moan and complain about things, but that's what sports is all about.

The Texans will always have fans here but you can already tell that the support is beginning to fall. As a hobby, I watch PSL prices on e-bay and on an occasion brokered a few deals.

Last year at this time there was maybe 1 to 3 PSL for sale at any given time on e-bay. This year is a different story. Currently there are 9+/- PSL for sale and only two have bids. One PSL (with a bid) is currently priced at less the 50% of face value. Along with the PSLs there are several sets of season tickets also with no bids.

If you want out of your PSLs right now and can get face value for them, consider yourself lucky.

I have been a fan of Houston football since 86. I will continue to buy tickets and travel from Shreveport LA to Houston for games for as long as Houston has a team. Unfortunatly our fans are so "win or else". I believe that the support has already begun to fade. For the first time since the our teams birth, I was able to buy single game tickets last year and I've tried every year. Our team loses again next year (GOD FORBID) and the stadium will be even emptier than it was that past year which was pretty empty compared to years past.

The city will always have loyal supporters, most of whom are not the type with the kind of money to go to games. Of the season ticket holders I know, they seem to complain a lot and don't go to every game. Of the loyal fans I know, we all watch every game, every highlight show, and the draft to watch our team, though we can't afford to go to games. Same thing that's happened to the Rockets.

Forever.

I still remember after the Oilers left....how hard it was to even watch the NFL. I even tried following the Broncos for a season as I used to live there, but it wasn't the same.

Go Texans!

i wont answer the poll because there isnt a FOREVER option......thats part of being a die hard fan you support em through thick and thin, it worries me that sometimes fans feel like if a team is doin bad they have a sentence like they're on death row.....when will this team die kinda thing. i hate that mentality.

Seems to me like the assumption is the Texans will forever be losers.

With a rookie coach, lot's of dead weight from the previous admistration, key injuries, the guys still had a 300% improvement this year. They beat the team that just a few weeks later won the Superbowl. They have the number 1 receiver in the league, defensive rookie of the year, solid vets like DRob, promising rookies like Daniels, Mario, etc.

The Texans are still a young team in the process of growing up, and I just can't see putting a child up for adoption because he doesn't meet all of my expectations on my timetable.

Texans, for better for worse!!!

Yeah I couldn't answer this poll either, because forever (unless McNair pulls a Bud) wasn't on it.

Lightning barely strikes twice and never strikes three times (unless your LA) so Houston BETTER get behind this team and stay there no matter what, which is exactly what I'm prepared to do.

New Stadium, New Team, the team will be in Houston for atleast 30 years..

I'm sure there will be atleast a few winning seasons in there.

Besides, It's gonna be an all-Texas super bowl this year...
