I have a huge Domanick Davis jersey. I've lost a lot of weight since I bought it and it's almost a dress on me. I think I'll wear a black shirt, it's close enough.

I don't see this as a marketing ploy....I see it as an attempt to get the fans coordinated. The stadium will look great "whited out". As fans it's a way to support our team while intimidating (hopefully) the opposing team. Houston is horrible when it comes to these things. There are still people cheering when we are on offense because they get excited when we are trying to score. This is another way to support your team and it doesn't require any effort - not even a towel waving. I for one am happy to do it.

Bottom line is this:
Wear something white.
Even if it doesn't have Texans logo, wear a white t shirt and Texans blue cap, just wear a white top.

If you are worried about it not being Texans logo shirt, jsut make alot of noise when the defense is on the field and after Jacoby takes a punt back 83 yards for a TD!

It looks so cool when a home crowd supports their team in wearing the color of the day.
Aggie 'maroon outs' and 'white outs' at Reed Arena have looked very cool in the past.
Make Reliant THE place to be on Sundays(and a Thursday in December) this Fall and Winter.

Besides, it's WHITE. It's not like anyone has to spend extra money on it. Undershirts are white. Free t-shirts from everywhere are white. It's easy - why be a jerk about it?

I think it started because of the heat...white jerseys for home on during the first part of the season - blue for the later part..

That's outdated now, though, because of our 80 degree closed-roof rule at Reliant. I think the blue jerseys should be the permanent home jerseys.

As for away jerseys, the home dictates. So more times than not, the Texans are wearing their white jerseys away, too. That's a wholelotta white and not much blue.

Ok so this means that when we meet up and I have on my CARR blue jersey, it's all good? Cuz, that's my option.
I could care less. Wear a Boselli jersey, doesn't matter to me.

I'm not doggin' anyone that wishes to participate. I just don't like being dogged because I like my steel blues, and it is still team colors.

I'm there to watch a football game, and to be honest, the only part about the crowd I care about is if they're yelling and being quiet at the right times. The team doesn't play better because we color coordinate. It is a fan thing, though, and I'm cool with team spirit (I've worn a hardhat to every home game since 19-10).

But...I am the Antipop, going against the grain until the day I drop.

Personally i love wearing my Texans jersey to the games, only time i get a chance to wear it here in SA, and i don't want to wear a damn white t-shirt when i want to wear my Texans jersey and that jersey happens to be steel blue...That doesn't make me any less of a fan....I will scream my lungs out, not be able to talk for 2 days, and it will all be for my TEXANS...So anyone else and their opinions, i really don't care...

The "all one color" day will never work at Reliant, so it's not gonna really matter what anyone wears. To many yahoo's that choose to wear anything BUT red white or blue. If you don't believe me, just wander through the club section.

Default Re: Wear White Sunday!!!

the thing is, i only get to go to a few games...and I am not going to not show my team support by not wearing one of my jerseys to the game when I get the chance. Great that the marketing department wants us in white...i think its a neat idea...but the reality is, I've got 7 texans jerseys, and none of them are white. I've got 3 steel blue andre's, 1 steel blue dominic davis, 1 battle red andre, and i gave my original Houston Jersey and my Sharper jersey to my girlfriend. Given that its the chiefs, and I don't want any confusion as to where my loyalties lie, Im rocking a steel blue andre.

A lot of teams have gotten away from the strictly "Dark at home - White on the road" since teams were allowed to use alternate jerseys. It gives them more flexibility for marketing angles. (i.e. Liberty White day, Battle Red day, Steel Blue day - new last year). Besides, would you want to wear a dark jersey in the middle of September in either Texas or say Florida - Brutal!!

If you want, blame the Cowboys. If they hadn't insisted on wearing their white jerseys at home, other teams would not have countered by wearing white at home and making the gurls wear their blue jerseys on the road. I remember a play-off game in the late 70's where the Eagles wore their white jerseys at home and beat the gurls. Other teams picked up on that and there ya have it...

I will not surrender and show white. Steel Blue is the color of my jersey. My Popcorn Lungs will be spitting fire at the Chiefs in lieu of fierce Liberty White apparell.

Its no different. Those who dont wear red on battle red day are probably the same ones most likely not to wear white on Sunday.

While I don't gripe when the roof is open, there is definitely a reason that I wear my Liberty White jersey all the time.
