Cool Visiting Fans In The Bullpen

Dear front office,

It's bad enough that you allow a partial owner retain two front row Bullpen seats - because people show up in the 3rd and are usually gone by the 4th.

But please, we ask that they not send down VOCAL fans from the visiting team. I'm usually an even keeled person, but I was very frustrated with his very vocal celebrations in OUR HOUSE, in the FRONT ROW OF THE BULLPEN.

I imagine the worst I'll ever do is yell for them to go back to their suites. Other people may not hold their temper in check the way I did Sunday, especially when beer is involved. My $.02.

Thanks,
Me and hopefully the rest of 116.

Yankee,

You're from the North, right? I'm sure you played a little hockey. How about a little hip check, sending them over the wall???

The guy that sits next to me has not been to a game since preseason game 1, he sells his tickets on e-bay and for both the Dallas game and the KC game we sat next to fans from the other team.

This is bs, if you sell your tickets than put them up on here for a fellow Texan fan or sell them to someone next to you.

As far as the Bullpen and the other sections around it, the front office needs to get those tickets from the brokers ASAP.

Yankee...my wife won front row tickets in 115 at yesterdays tailgate from Sports Radio 610. She was there the entire game...from kickoff to the bitter end with my father.

Her only complaint was the sewage odor coming from the phantom pharter!!! She said it was very, very bad...

As a Texan fan that loves to travel to away games, I have a very different perpsective.

I am always respectful and not over doing my welcome. But, still cheer for the Texans.

Going to the Chargers and Raiders this year in California. Great seats on the Texans bench side for both games. I am going to both games with full gear. We'll see if I get out alive at Oakland since I am flying solo on that trip.

I will be at the Miami game and trust me you will recognize me. You'll know the Hollywood Texan when you see me.

LOL! The phantom pharter. Yes, this must be due to the beer swallering at 7 am till kickoff. I, regrettably, experienced these meaty, nasty, hovering, yellow clouds of sewage......even worse than the port o john's at 11:45

Get the section number and seat number and call the Texans Ticket office at Reliant. This person re-selling tickets in the Bull Pen to opposing fans is flat out WRONG. All they are doing is scalping the things for profit. Total BS!

Did you see that ***** last nite at the SUperdome in the vince young #10 jersey when Reggie lept into the stands? Now didn't that look BAD!
We don't need that in OUR HOUSE.
If visitor fan wants to come see a game, they are welcome to come sit up with us in GRIDIRON, TX.
We'll give them the business!

Been there, done that, since the very beginning and when the Bullpen committee was active. EVERY year complaints are made to the TEXANS front office, and every year nothing is done. Until they start taking PSLs away from people who sell them on E-BAY, get use to opposing teams fans in the Bullpen. I am surrounded by corp owned and ticket master seats in section 116 also.

Remember that story a few years back where that dude, I think it was the Pats, sold his tickets for profit on e-bay and the organization took his PSLs away from him? He had been a season ticket holder for over 20 years, had never missed a home game, and was a proclaimed diehard. He had to miss a game because of an overseas trip or something like that, so he sold his tickets on e-bay. Last I remember reading about it, he was suing to get his seats back.

Good points, but actually futile, IMO.

The nature of corporate NFL and PSLs, which are legal contracts, will prevent the Texans FO from doing anything. As long as the PSL holder renews their seats every year, there is nothing the Texans can do about it.

I completely agree. I'm mostly whining because (so the urban legen goes) these seats are owned by a partial owner of the Texans.



In general, however, I believe they do reserve the right to revoke PSL tickets sold for profit (I haven't read the contract in years). They should use this to nail the brokers - i.e. one "person" with 10, 15, 20+ tickets for sale on StubHub (etc.).

Instead of chastising Phantom Pharter, maybe y'all should embrace him.

If people quit buying seats from the ticket outlet places because of farter guy, maybe the companies will let their tickets go... Once that is achieved, you can buy farter guy some beano....

Well, if it's who I think it is, he comes in direct contact with those that sit in the two seats Yank's talking about.

I've not seen too many opposing fans sitting in those seats. Actually, I haven't seen many fans (other than the BPers that hijack 'em) in those seats at all. If it really is a partial owner that has those seats, I have to question his taste in people. The last two I saw there didn't look like classy ladies, if you catch my drift. Maybe this partial owner is spending a lot of time trolling street corners.

The seats that Yankee is talking about are owned by a company that has a suite and they apparently give those seats to opposing fans every game. They come down to sit late (second qtr/3rd qtr) in the game and they leave early. The fans that were down there this game were very vocal (almost in a taunting way).

It is not very smart to go sit in the Black Hole and cheer for the opposing team while the home team is losing nor should it be for opposing fans in OUR Bull Pen. One day cooler heads may not prevail.

The Texans are aware of these issues and they have not been able to correct them in five season. We can only hope they do it before something stupid happens.

No doubt, Yankee. We've been trying to move down in the 500's for years, but brokers have most of the seats in front of us (about 6 rows). We see different fans at every game for the most part.

It seems to me that the Texans would want the rabid fanatics on the front rows of every section. We are loud and proud, and in six seasons, I have NEVER been asked to be quiet or sit down. I suppose wearing a hard hat tells people what I'd think of their 'request'.

But the Texans are all about making money, so they will not offend a PSL holder to accomodate the fanatics. Corporate BS over team spirit, IMO. (The same folks that bring us six different uniform combos for 8 home games...go figure.)

Here's what the FO can do:

Contact the company to issue a "cease and desist" order. If the company refuses to comply, pull the PSLs. I doubt the company will sue, because: a) who needs the bad press in H-town?, and b) don't they have a business to run?

I am sure the Texans would not have any trouble selling the suite to another firm.

Sending opposing fans to the bullpen is just wrong.

The Texans have a corporate deal with StubHub. Are they going to bite the hand.....?

The two tickets in front of me are StubHubbed. Usually it is opposing fans in the seats. This game and the Eagles game, they were cool. Dallas game was uncool, until the completion of the mudhole stomping.

There is an etiquette of going to an opposing stadium. You are cordial to the people around you, you clap when something good happens, and you trash talk the folks around you.
