Profanity laced tirades or emails will not help the cause. If you send a well thoughtout carefully worded email that has a strong tone to it, your point will come across better.


Which is what I did and I also sent one to the Texans but I do not expect anything from them, because they seriously do not give a crap about Austin or San Antonio either.

I sent a polite e-mail last year. Now it's just inexcusable. I probably shouldn't have ended with "eat sh*t", but it's our home opener god damnit.

sometimes it is hard to control anger......but when they see profanity and outrage they would probably immediatly discard the email. However when they see a more professional approach they see a valued insight on something they might be able to improve on. At least thats what they should see. If all else fails get a bag of dog $h!t..light it on fire and put it on the building door step (J/K)

ps. I am so thankful I do not live in Austin.
Yes the took the ratings from one Titans game but it was very skewed as in not a very accurate barometer(sp) on ratings. There were so very iffy circumstance about how they got there numbers.

Might have been a bad choice on words, but if I ever meet Gary A Vincent in person he will know my true feelings about how bad of a job he does and that he can take his sorry good for nothing ass to Nashville and let bud adams Tbag him all he wants.

You're right, however they normally at least wait until the Texans show they are not going to be competitive before making the switch.

BTW, why don't some of you Austinites help me put something together. I want to start a campaign against KEYE on this site. I can create a page that will probably get some decent rankings and exposure.

If this mean sticking it to keye and making fun of them and hopefully costing them money in advertising, then count me in.

If it is only to piss off Keye program director, that works to.

This story made the news last year and they interviewed Vincent and he said the rating were better for the Titan's games this last year and the next year (2007) they will carry at least the first few Texan games and see if it will catch on.

I'm so tired of calling KEYE and explaining to them that I'm not buying it, that , no, the decision to carry the Titan game wasn't made in New York and I don't apreciate having my intelligence insulted that way.

Could always use this for the program director.

Wow, now I'm supremely pissed off. With all the crap about the Titans last year, KEYE did in fact release a statement last year saying they would at least televise the first Texans game. What a load of horsecrap.
