I think we may have a loophole.

Quote:
3-Je.Reed kicks 77 yards from PIT 30 to HOU -7. 11-A.Davis to HOU 21 for 28 yards (38-C.Davis).
1-10-HOU 21 (14:54) 8-M.Schaub pass short left to 83-K.Walter ran ob at HOU 32 for 11 yards.
1-10-HOU 32 (14:32) 8-M.Schaub pass short right to 30-A.Green to HOU 29 for -3 yards (43-T.Polamalu, 51-J.Farrior).

1-10-HOU 43 (13:18) 20-S.Slaton right guard to HOU 43 for no gain (91-Aa.Smith).
2-10-HOU 43 (12:44) 20-S.Slaton right guard to HOU 44 for 1 yard (56-L.Woodley, 91-Aa.Smith). PENALTY on PIT-51-J.Farrior, Defensive Offside, 5 yards, enforced at HOU 43 - No Play.
2-5-HOU 48 (12:19) 20-S.Slaton up the middle to HOU 50 for 2 yards (50-L.Foote; 92-J.Harrison).
3-3-HOU 50 (11:36) 8-M.Schaub pass short left to 89-D.Anderson to PIT 48 for 2 yards (26-D.Townsend).
4-1-PIT 48 (10:50) 8-M.Schaub up the middle to PIT 48 for no gain (99-B.Keisel, 98-C.Hampton). Houston challenged the first down ruling, and the play was Upheld. (Timeout #1 at 10:32.)
which reminds me... those last two ball spots by the refs, sucked.

In the interest of sanity (plus the technicality thing), I think we need to find an edible hat. This just isn't safe.

Default Re: If Slaton isn't starting week 1

You guys are being nice. The depth chart clearly states that not only is Slaton not the first string, but the third string RB behind Taylor.

Below is the Texans' unofficial depth chart. Click here for the interactive depth chart. Last update: Sept. 4, 2008.

Offense
POS First String Second String Third String Fourth String Fifth String
WR Andre Johnson André Davis
LT Duane Brown Ephraim Salaam
LG Chester Pitts Kasey Studdard
C Chris Myers Chris White Mike Brisiel
RG Mike Brisiel Chris White
RT Eric Winston Rashad Butler
TE Owen Daniels Mark Bruener Joel Dreessen
WR Kevin Walter Jacoby Jones David Anderson
QB Matt Schaub Sage Rosenfels
RB Ahman Green Chris Taylor Steve Slaton
FB Vonta Leach Chris Taylor

And while yes Slaton may have gotten the first run of the game Green was still the back on the field for the first snap.

SWT you should be proud you are about to eat your hat, you can now proudly say that you crap Battle Red, Liberty White, and Steel Blue.

Besides, a bet is a bet. This is no different than losing a card game.

I would suggest that you would be excused from eating the bill but you have to eat the sweat ring.

Well, Slaton technically got the first carry, but Ahman Green was targeted by a pass prior to that. So the RB was offensively involved before Slaton was. EAT THE HAT!!!!!















OK, serious about the play sequence, but eating a hat is probably going to be a bad thing. I'd advise against it

Can't get away with eating food, no matter how disgusting. Its got to be something weird, like roaches. Or the hat. May want to cook the hat first, to get it softened up

i was planning on cutting the hat up into strips, dipping in sauce. agreed, food wouldn't substitute.

the only thing that makes me hesitate is that frankly i really love my texans hat. my dad bought it for me game 1, season 1, and i've worn it every day since. i might buy another hat for eating.

I am not trying to be a butt, however, a bet is a bet.

Just like Steve McQueen's character in Alfred Hitchcock's "A man from the South" , if you don't want to lose your little finger, than you shouldn't bet your little finger.

If you don't want to eat your hat, you shouldn't bet your hat.

I think this is a life lesson that our young gambler needs to experience and to keep this event in mind the next time a bet is placed.

Never bet something that your not willing to lose.

Thats just my opinion.

Besides, he's eating cotton. He will be alright.
