Hey, my nicest & most-customized jersey is my red Mario one, but it stays home this weekend.

SWT - If you'd really like a Texans white tshirt, size XL, let me know...I have several that won't fit my *ahem* larger diameter (2XL) torso anymore. Sorry, no "spare" white jerseys though, I've only got one.
how much are you asking for them? Between my move and expenses right now, I am not a plethora of extra money. Have even had to temporarily suspend the poker trips...

I have seen fans on tv, if not mistaken I believe the Miami Heat in last year's playoffs, all wore (well appeared to by at least 95%) white and the consistency did look really nice. Although I really like to wear jerseys to the games, I think on this occasion I will go with a white top.

I went to a couple of the Rockets playoff games the past season and even though the fans were asked to wear red, I doubt if half did. A friend showed up at my house in a green polo, WTH. I had to lead the friend to the closet to make another selection.

I do not care if you do not like it. What right do YOU have in deciding what I will wear? Who made YOU the fashion police?

It is people like you that give Texans fans a bad name and you should be ashamed of your comments.
I believe the others like me have reminded everyone that the Texan's asked us to wear white. I know I have only asked you to wear white. Not told. Not threatened people like the poster who dared us to say something to his face. I guess he would then punch someone in the face. Very nice.
I have never and will never mock a Houston fan at a Houston game. THAT is not cool at all.
The first post of this thread merely reminded people of the event.
I DO believe this is ONE of the reasons why nationally we are not considered some of the best fans. Ask Packer fans to wear green, and they say okay.
Ask Texans fans to wear white, and have fun, and they say "I don't have a white shirt."
I have said and done nothing to "be ashamed" of.
Rick Smith and the Texans asked us to wear white, he did not tell us to. Many of you just read what you want.

Source, please. I've never read anything about Houston fans on the national media level except that Reliant can be one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL.

Perhaps it's your insecurity of what the rest of the country thinks of us...who knows. The perception of the Texans has to do with five losing seasons, not what colors fans wear to games. If anything, they'd laugh at us for having 5-6 uniform combos for 8 home games. Most teams have a standard home uni and maybe one game sporting a retro look.

I'm only in this thread because some find themselves on a mental high horse about how they define "fan". I feel the need to defend ALL Texans fans when they are being unfairly attacked and generalized.

I wrote the Texans about this nonsense, because it's spilled over to sports talk radio now. What will make the rest of the country think we are bad fans is the bickering over who is a "better fan". It's silly and pointless.

The Texans response:

Quote:
Dear Double Barrel,

Thank you for your email and support of the Houston Texans! We appreciate your feedback regarding Liberty White Day. We have chosen theme days to unite the fans and intimidate the opposing team. Please feel free to wear your Deep Steel Blue jersey on Sunday. Thank you and have a great day!

Go Texans!
C'mon, " intimidate the opposing team"? Yeah, riiiiight. Marketing slogans all the way.

I'll most likely wear white, simply because I have the option. But some folks don't, and I'm never going to call them out because they don't follow the herd.

If you are still watching and rooting for this team after five dismal seasons, YOU ARE A TEXANS FAN as far as I'm concerned.

Point Set Match and the winner is DB for being the voice of reason and knowing we are all true fans no matter what color you wear.

I will try and have Reliant hearing me all the way from Thirdbase austin.

Ok guys... you are true fans no matter what you wear. That part has ALREADY been established.

For those of you who are ANTI wearing white, dont. For those of you who want to join in on the gameplan of turning Reliant into a sea of Liberty White for the Liberty White Kickoff.... this is simply a reminder for you to BRING IT!

I must say that the number that did wear the white, it really looked good in the stadium. I will return to wearing jerseys next game, but my short white sleeved shirt, capris and flipflops were sooo comfortable.

It did look cool but a little weird. I never really consider white as one of our primary colors for some reason. I hope the Texans ask fans to wear all red or all blue at some point this season. I think that would look even better. Besides, when fans ask which color(s) they identify the Texans with, it's probably going to be one of those two.
