Default Re: Stop booing our team....

NitroHonda,

I understand but disagree. I don't think the fans will be any better at calling plays than the coaches are. I don't think booing helps in any way. The coaches are very aware of what is going on out on the field and that they were sucking. That's all, just a friendly post in the forums, more of an inquiry I guess than a request(even though it was worded as a request).

While I'm not a great fan of booing - we only had 1...or was it 2...first downs in the first half...Half, I say.That is beyond inexcusable. I didn't boo today - but I certainly felt like going down on the field and snatching some players bald headed.

I think I'm as classy a fan as there is in sports and in general I think booing is warranted at times to express to the people in charge that sloppy and mismanged games aren't acceptable. I don't agree with booing players in general who are working their tail off or ones that just aren't fan favorites. But when I see lackluster play or pure ineptitude, it is fine for a paying fan to show what they think.

Oh,

Well when I went to the game I wasn't really expecting them to win, I really just went to watch them play a game. They have been playing poorly and I may or may not go to another game this season.

I officially retract my original request to stop the booing. You guys are right but I still will not boo them, I just won't go to the games if I don't like the way they are playing. I am not going to give them my money if they don't do anything positive with it.

It's very hard not to boo when its 3rd and 22 and we run. Or when its 35-7 and, while it's not true, it looks as though our offense isn't even trying.
Bingo. I did boo at one point, because I found myself truly asking "are they trying?"

Buffi,

I cannot agree more. I couldn't believe how bad they were playing, I wasn't sure they would win, going to retract saying I didn't think they would. I just wasn't sure if they would. But when they were playing like they were I did want to go down to the field and dragon kick someone in the face. Instead I just sat up in the stand and complained to my GF, and wanted to leave(I couldn't bring myself to leave though).

i agree, rep your way... it's classless imo. If you don't like the product, leave. Lord knows half of the people in the stadium don't show up until halftime anyway b/c they're still outside getting blasted in the parking lot.

24 yards in a half...the team was lucky not to get objects thrown at them.

Leahmic223,

Now if I ever saw ANYONE throwing objects at ANYONE on the field I would throw them on the field. That is not only uncalled for but very childish. Booing is one thing, but throwing objects is a completely different offense.

Exactly, and it is the same as my statement above. If I ever saw mismanaged or underprepared then I'd boo. Especially if it was a pattern. I wouldn't expect it on a day like today but for 3 quarters it looked like an uninspired effort...something no Texans team has a right to do.

Agreed. Booing isn't crossing the line but throwing objects is. We, as paying fans, need to be able to vent our frustration. Booing is a very good medium for that. I wouldn't be booing at a little league game or anything like that but these are grown men who are being paid a fortune for doing this as a job. It's their job and right now they're doing a poor job.

Default Re: Stop booing our team....

I did a search and I don't agree with skip much but I agree with this..from a while back
ESPN.
Quote:
Which brings us to the real question: Should any professional athlete in any sport ever be booed at home? Seriously, under any circumstance, should you boo a player or coach or GM or owner of the team you root for -- even live for?

Sure you should. You pay outrageous ticket prices. You buy the right to literally voice your opinion within earshot of the overpaid underachievers who deny you your bragging rights and disgrace the good name of your city and team.

You know your e-mails and letters to the team won't get read -- not by the people who count. But your boos will be heard.

Still, can booing help your team? And are there certain superstars who have earned the right to never, ever hear a boo from you as long as they play?

Yes and yes.

I agree with that. The manangement will hear the boos. I think they will also feel the loss in proceeds from people not buying tickets. Just a thought.

It was a joke.

Just saying the team DESERVED to be booed at, the boos should have turned into some chants.

Man 2 first down conversions and 24 total yards...that is flat out unacceptable and I don't care how good the Titans defense is.

Yeah, what the hell was going on with the Offense in the first 3 quarters? Do any of the guys know wtf was the problem? I was to busy taking pictures and kept on missing stuff in the game. One thing I did see was Schaub running away quite often. Was it just the O line causing all these problems?

One thing to think about though. Even with how bad the offense was. It is amazing that we could have won this game even with 6 turn overs. I couldn't beleive we even had a shot at this game with the number of turnovers that were commited.

I agree with that but there is still too much excitement for this team for Reliant to not be sold out still.

Shaub,Kubiak etc etc... was like a breath of fresh air for this franchise

I would've booed after the first half. What fan wouldn't have? The offense was putrid and didn't even deserve the NFL logos on their jerseys. Thank God I didn't pay to watch that crap.

Boo away, as consumers you have two choices to express your disdain for the teams poor performane, don't pay to see or buy their merchandise or boo them when they play badly.

When I underperform at work, I get negative feedback, why should football players be any diffferent.
