"Both Houston and Dallas need winning football teams," said Stephanie Stradley, who blogs about the Texans and was named the team's 2006 Ultimate Fan. "To expect Houston fans to be content with rooting for a Dallas team is like expecting Philadelphia fans to be happy to accept the Steelers as their sole NFL rooting interest."

Congrats TC, keep it up! You always have great things to say- so I'm glad they are quoting you and not Marshall Faulk.


That Bean fellow is funny. The whole saga with the #1 pick only made me become a bigger Texan fan. Sure it was hard with all my friends ragging on me and the Texans, but it made me support them that much more.

I wish we could play Dallas every year and it be a bigger rivalry but at the same time I think its cool we're in different conferences.

As much as I'm a Texan fan, I will be routing a little for Dallas just so people respect Texas football more. I can't wait untill we're consistently in the playoffs...go Texans!

I'd rather try to be one of the good ambassadors for Texan fans than be someone that has to think about what my hair looks like.

In the interview I said a lot more stuff. And they took two quotes and mashed them together.

I said it is good when Dallas plays well because it is good for the NFL for the Cowboys to be relevant as the team people either love or hate.

And I said in so many words that it is good for Houston to play well, because Houston is the freaking 4th most populous city and we love us some football. That if the franchise is worth so much when the Texans haven't had a winning season, I'm guessing it would pull in more money when they are rolling.

TC is my idol. LOL

Her view points always make you think. Her football knowledge puts all kinds of guys to shame. I read her fanhouse blog everyday just to feel connected to home. (Not an easy task when you are 2000 miles away.)

I find it kind of humorous.

And I doubt that anyone in that jam packed stadium tomorrow will have Beano on their minds.

He better hope the Saints don't decide to wake up against his man crush, else he'll be looking at 1-2 and starting to look for scapegoats.

Exactly. I am thinking the Saints will look much better at home actually.

And Bean's point demonstrates why it was probably better for the Texans in the long run not to get VY.

During last year's Texans game, I talked to a guy wearing a burnt orange #10 shirt. It was his first NFL game. He said that he usually parties on Saturdays and uses Sundays to recover from his hangover. But he was there to watch Vince. Those sorts of people would have been the additions to the fanbase.

I think it is better to have a fanbase who is not just fans because they like one guy on the team. Kubiak has made such a point of saying that the Texans are a team, and not about one guy. And though that concept isn't the way the Texans like to market, that's the concept you want your team to buy.

I know that VY says that he wants to be just another guy on the team, but especially in the context of the Texans, that would have been a hard thing to do. If people love a player, more than they love the team or the coach or whatever, then that player can do no wrong. With the number of Vince fans in this part of the world, his power would be great if the VY Texans were winning, but could be absolutely toxic if they didn't succeed. ("Let's find us a coach that can let Vince be Vince, etc")

And I am saying this as someone who wanted to draft Vince and a UT alum and someone who thinks he can have a good career in the NFL if Bud's organization doesn't mess it up. The relative power he would have had in the Texans organization was always one of my concerns of picking him.

I found this site through Battle Red Blog a few weeks ago and it's great. TC Gets major props from me. National recognition is an incredible accomplishment.

I never thought that Houston should have drafted Young. I like his athleticism, but unless he has a supporting cast, he's another Michael Vick without the animal husbandry skills (that's a joke, I despise acronyms and purposely avoid using LOL <although I just did>). Last year at Reliant the wideouts took our man-to-man coverage deep and opened up the middle for VY's game winning scramble, although I must say it looked like a designed play to me. Young is a great talent, and seems to be a good guy from what I've seen, but I'm glad we didn't draft him because we would then be, for all intents and purposes, the Houston VYs.

As someone who could have cared less one way or the other about UT before moving to Austin but the disdain some UT fans have for anyone not rooting for UT has spurred me to how I feel about UT now.

I have met some really wonderful UT alumn (mostly on here) that actually do not treat folks like a piece of crap because they do not cheer for UT. It is those folks; like TC, Hookem, and Michaelem(sp), I know I botched that, that make UT look like one of the top schools that it is.

This is something I never even thoght about TC, very interresting point.
