Speaking of bands though.

GREAT music, terrific kids who would NEVER have gotten to see a professional football game if not for that opportunity. Personally, I miss entertainment like that. Remember OCEAN OF SOUL?? Fans actually stayed in their seats at halftime to watch that band!! Good memories!!

I remember those Oiler days as well as the Ocean of Soul. The Ocean is stilll very entertaining although I am partial to Prairie View's Marching Storm. One of my best memories in the Dome was a night game with the Oilers against Buffalo. Thurman Thomas was the Bills running back and his former high school band, Willowridge, did the pregame and half time show. That evening, Barbara Tucker sang God Bless America in soprano that could break glasses, and a high spirited show that I wish I had a tape. Best of all, the Oilers won the game.

Back in those days, the Oilers always invited local bands to play at halftime. I have a picture on a plaque of the Willowridge Eagle band in the form of the State of Texas in the Astrodome. I believe it was their last performance before the Oilers left.

At any rate, the poster was unreasonably rude, and if he didn't care to tone down the offense to a mere differing of opinion, then the change is welcome.

To censor that is no better than- I won't get in to politics. But even if you did "ban my IP"... this is the internet. Grow up bud.

I'm a sorry excuse for a Texans fan because I want us to succeed on the field while obtaining a stigma of class off the field??? I think you're a sorry excuse for a fan because you're looking out for your band buddies instead of opening your eyes and wanting what's best for the organization.

Perhaps I'll put my Kinesiology/Sports Psychology degree to use with the Texans organization, and rid ourselves from your goofy bandmates. I have a buddy interning with them right now who has told me that I am not the only one who has contacted them with their displeasure for the "Pep Band"......
And you guys blamed it on Carr .

Tahoe is complaining about the band again on the other message board. He even takes a little potshot at this board. Oh well. Some people are never happy.

I will be brief and to the point. The Pep Band is great and they work hard. If someone doesn't like them then don't go to our games. We are lucky to have the band.

We've got people representing every lot in this forum. Before the Texans FO gets the idea that fans don't want the pep band because of one squeaky wheel, I say we start petitions of support for the band. It just needs to be something simple, and we can take the combined petitions from all lots and send them to the FO together.

Regular tailgaters represent a mighty aspect of the fanbase, because these are the hardcore fans who have stuck with the team through five years of futility. I think our voices need to be heard, as well. The band is worth the effort, IMO, and it's the least we can do after all the work that they've put into it all these years.
