I for one am going to send an e-mail to

fanfeedback@houstontexans.com

to express my hoping that the Band will be given a home. After all, they work very hard and I believe do it for free.
Either for free or very little.

A lot of the Band were sitting up in Section 638 with us last weekend...I asked them next time to bring their instruments and play up there...they can play all game long if they want, it's totally fine with me. Football needs a band!
I think it would be great!
Go BAND!!!

We welcome ALL OF YOU up to our section, we want it to be loud and proud!

how about setting up a tv out in Budweiser plaza...they could watch the game from out there, and when they play it could be streamed onto the big screens?

Default Re: Bull Pen Pep Band not allowed on field

Don't get me wrong here. I'm a Pep Band fan! Love it at the tailgates when they come through the lots and play and get everyone fired up.

But inside the stadium, it's a non-issue to me. I couldn't care less if you had a band, an orchestra, a circus or whatever. I'm not there to see any of that stuff. I'm there to watch a football game.

My biggest issue on this is the NFL going overboard here with more stupid rules. They were down there for SEVEN YEARS!!!! What harm were they doing???? And why all of a sudden after SEVEN YEARS does there have to be a rule put in place to remove them???

Default Re: Bull Pen Pep Band not allowed on field

I can understand the rule if it is in the interest of safety. I see other teams have bands as well and a player or a band member getting hurt could be an issue. But then again, why are cheerleaders allowed on the field?

I like the band as they roam around the tailgates, and such. I never really cared for them during the game. But then again, I don't care for cheerleaders during the game as well as I am there for football, not the side shows. Taking nothing away from either group, just not my thing.

Sex sells, and the band ain't sexy.

The league is getting further and further away from it's roots every year, and the ever-increasing corporatized atmosphere is really killing the spirit of the fanatics. It's a damn shame, too.

But Gary... I wouldn't know if they're the best... Heck, I wouldn't even know if they were the worst in the league!

Either way... I caught them tailgating in Yellow Lot and chuggin' down serious beers before the Saints game. For that.... they get my approval. I like a band who at least looks like they're having fun! I can buy that!

Also... I could care less if they sat behind me. Wouldn't bother me much...

No thanks, I come to watch a football game and The Houston Texans play not watch/listen to a band.
I am not saying they do not put work into what they do, I just dont think it is needed at an NFL game. They just never seemed to really get a response from the crowd, other than a few cheers(which I added due to respect not enjoying thier performance).

Having the band there has NOTHING to do with watching the football game!!!! They DON'T play during the game! geeezzzz!! They add to the gameday experience and make slack time a lot less boring. If anything interferes with watching the game, it's those damn goal post! lol

The NFL is doing everything they can to take the fun out of the game of football! Pretty soon they'll be telling us not to yell, that the noise might upset their overpaid prema-donna's, or might be distracting to the "suits" that waste time up in the club section! We, the fans, pay the big bucks for tickets, but, we seem to be the one's getting the shaft. If I want to just sit and watch a football game, and not experience the FUN of being there, I'll just stay at home. Hell of a lot cooler in my living room!!

I MISS THE BAND!! Hope they find a place for them by reg season!!

How about those fans who talk right next to you for the whole game or when something good happens they all stand up to see leaving folks like me out in the cold to wonder what happend?
