At the time, there was this one guy that worked from my wife from Nashville. He sent her a couple of Tennessee Oilers t-shirts: one for her, one for me.

They still haven't found the body.

pure and simple. Legalized gambling.

Instant death of a sport and reincarnation as wrestling. Quite possibly the worst imaginable eternal end in the entire spectrum of afterlife theories.

I'll always be a fan of the Red,White & Blue. No matter what people at the office or stores want to think, I am a fan. What others think does not influence me in any way!

If they change the team to the Denver Broncos that is when enough is enough, I am tired of the discarded Bronco's players being signed because they know the system. We start to lose our identity as team when you have an abundance of players, coach and GM all from one other organization. Kubes and Smith ar good to go,but after that enough for the job security if the Broncos's dump you.

Yeah kubs, shanahan, J Putzier, Ron Dayne. I think JP is an alright player to have, RD did a nice job last season. Now if it continues i will be worried. So does that mean your against getting Plummer ?

I think this is exactly right. Most of those who post or visit this board will probably be with the Texans to the end, but the city of Houston as a whole has a very bandwagon mentality. Just talk to a casual fan of the Rockets or Astros when they are going through a losing streak, it'll be the end of the world and the Rockets/Astros will be the worst team in the league. Go to a game during the regular season and the stadium will be half empty. However, when the playoffs start and we're in it, the stadiums will be packed and all will tell you how they never doubted, never wavered...right. This town is fickle indeed.

Yeah, I am not crazy about getting Plummer. I think he's to much of a risk at this point. He did execute well with Kubiak,however that was in Denver. I am not too high on Carr right now, but at best I feel we're only trading across the board. At worst we could end up with an interception throwing overpayed QB,which many would argue we already have. If any of you all have watched Plummer,his attitude won't fly with the fans. He is a Prima Donna that throws fits as soon as the criticizm hits him. Nobody wants to admit it but one more year of Carr is what it will take and then we can move on.

I undersatand what u are trying to say, but at the same time, you have to understand the frustrations every city goes through when their team isn't doing well...We all have to be guilty of being bandwagon fans when we are angry...I'm a diehard Spurs fan as well and iam angry as hell at them for sucking the way they've been this year, but doesn't mean i still don't love em....Thats why iam angry at them because i love this em....As i do the Texans, through frustrations and all...Just a matter of, are you going to go to another team and support them, till they start doing bad as well???

Maybe I'm misunderstanding something here but I'm trying to understand how watching my team on tv and going to a game once or twice a year makes me any less committed to this team than others (if I weren't a part of this message board). Please explain that to me before I go any further with my comments.....

I'll always support our hometown team, but think most of the area would bail after 3-5 yrs.

To some, if you do not bleed the colors of the team's jersey, offer any criticisms or make any complaints, you sir are a big NONO! I prefer to watch football and basketball on tv in my house. Baseball I prefer in person.

I was a fan of the Oilers until they decided to leave me.

I became a die-hard fan of the Oilers the day they drafted Earl. Before that, I was an NFL fan who preferred the local team, which happened to be the Oilers.

Now I am an NFL fan who prefers the local team, which happens to be the Texans.

They had a chance to make me a die-hard fan, and they missed it.

They will have to do something other than just exist to capture my heart.

No,no.. not the fans. The players, the coaches, the FO and so forth.

If those guys are caught gambling... for sure it will tarnish the sport. No doubt about it.

even myself, I would give up on the NFL if it happened... twice.

EDIT:

Match Fixing

this will explain it better. ( yes tanking for the #1 pick in Bush Bowl counts too, but it's not the same as throwing a game for somebody to make money on a bet )

The NFL has had some close calls before in the 60's and the latest was Clarence
http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2553084

EDIT AGAIN:

Here's an even better reason not have the NFL in Vegas. Schlicter.

Texan fan till the end.
I bled Columbia blue. Until they left town.
Disregard the fair weather fans. They're in every town.
Shoot, if I quit the Texans, I'd have to get my tattoo taken off....No way!

This a bit of a stupid question if you ask me. I will support them as long as they are trying. I will not support them if they do not make the hard choices in their players and stick with a loser like Carr (not to make this a carr thread). Point is this, a team like we were in the first 2 -2.5 seasons, a team with a lot of heart i will always support. Period.
