Default NFL's best fans

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/previe...ory?id=3530077

ESPN.com ranking of the best fans in the NFL. I'd like to think we would rank higher than 23rd. My biggest beef is giving the Texans fans a 3 (middle of the road score) for tailgating. The 49ers got a 2 and unless things have changed since I've been out that direction they aren't even in the same league as Texans fans.

Where are all the ESPN lovers???


Anyway, its crap... Don't read anyting into it - especially the tailgating part. If you want to read about our tailgates, look up the "The Commisioner of Tailgating" Joe Cahn, or google "The Ultimate Sports Road Trip"....

Actually, that's about right. To get a "1" in Hatred, you probably have to be an obnoxious fanbase, like Cowboy fans or Eagle fans or Raider fans.
We're not like that. (mainly because we haven't yet had any basis to brag)

So no other team's fans, not even, Jags or Tacks fans hate us. (but just wait until we take over the division )

As far as travel goes, we haven't been around long enough to establish a traveling road show like the Broncos or the CheeseHeads. That will improve as we get better established as a winner. Folks are more inclined to follow a winner.

True. Too true. We could also blame the fact that we're quite civil compared to other fan outfits around the league.

Yes Matt Mosley is a cowgirl fan. Paul Kuharsky I have no clue about. Hell I am not sure he has ever been to a Texans game for that matter. If he has been to a Texans game I want to know what lot he went to, to say our tailgating was not top of the line?

pile of crap, the Bills and Seahawks should easily be in the top 10, Patriots fans should be in bottom 5 as they are all obnoxious oafs (at least the ones in the UK are).

Disclaimer: I hold a position in ESPN

For real though, the assessment is right on:
Quote:
In 2006, when local hero Vince Young returned as a member of the division rival Titans, fans couldn't have greeted him more warmly. When he won the game with a TD run in overtime, most of Reliant Stadium cheered him. Texans fans are desperate for a winner and appreciate first-class ownership. They score well in loyalty (though as Young proved, a good share of it is to the University of Texas.) Though they can be whiny on a Monday morning, they've had a reasonable amount to whine about.

OK, the more I looked at this, he has the loyalty rating of the Jags rated higher than the Texans. The Jags have a 3, and we have a 1. Those tarps are some loyal ass fans I guess.

Look at the scores again.
Think golf. The lower the score the better.

Our 1 is betta than their 3

WE are more loyal fans than Jags fan.

For once I think ESPN made some honest choices here, atleast about the top
5. Beyond that, I just don't know the individual teams support that well ?
BTW, as far as our ranking goes, we've got a long way to go so don't feel insulted.

Kuharsky is a Titans beat writer. Why do you think he judged the entire Houston fan base on one game where Vince stuck it up our ass (the pinnacle of Uncle Rico's NFL career it seems). He's been to 6 games at Reliant, one for every time the Titans visited.

When I travel from Austin to the games, I always have to plead with people to stand up and get loud. When I do, they get mad at me. We should've got a worse score.

Oh ok, that explains it. Well at least a known titant fan wrote it. It kindas would have sucked if the asked one of our local jagoffs to write it because they would have said the same thing.

I don't know or care how others rate us as fans. I can't afford to get season tickets, so I get to see a couple of games live each year (thanks to my brother's law firm tickets that he gives me. This year I get to catch the Colts live in Reliant. I already got to see the preseason opener against Denver. I'm stoked to say the least. The one thing I can say is that if you want to find some REAL Texans fans, all you have to do is visit this message board. Hardcore fans through and through!

This is kind of like the King Thread, but I would have to agree with the results for the most part. I would place the Texan fans in the top 20 though. Until we are able to be consistant, in terms of ticket sales, rolloever in the community, and national following, it's about right.

I know for a FACT that our tailgating is one of the top 5 that is insane! My other problem is that we are lower than the Tians fans, insane. Us being nice and no one hating us hurt us in this rank but o well.
