Default Houston Texans fans... WOW!

I have seats in the Bullpen but had my first chance to sit in the club level (section 334). Why do people pay to sit on a couch to watch the game on TV and pay for high priced concessions? I bet 60% of my section were in their seats at any given time. Early in the first we had a third and 5, I stood and was making noise, the few people that were in their seats looked at me like I was crazy! Give me HEAT, give me SUN, but please give me the BULLPEN FANS! No pot shots against other sections or levels, but the club level was LOADED with "T-sips".... no pun intended Longhorn fans. LOWER the ticket prices and get fans into the damn seats! Make it affordable for the average fan that WANTS to be there!

Are the people in Houston STUPID? Why did I see red jerseys, blue jerseys, and just whatever on WHITE OUT DAY? How freaking hard is it to wear something white? The Texans did not do their part today, but the Texans fans did not either!!!!!!!!

Bob, I have been with you since day 1. You expect a return on your investment, SO DO THE TEXANS FANS! I have taken your ticket prices skyrocketing since 2002 and my paking pass has almost doubled in price. I keep thinking ONE day we are going to turn the corner. You sold us on a first class organization in 2002 and I believed you. The confidence is starting to wander. You have a coach and QB that is still unproven (BILL COWHER where are you?). Now you have a cornerback that is making close to $10,000,000 for playing 16 games and he has the balls to write, PAY ME RICK" on his shoes??????? Its just getting sad that the middle class people that sacrifice to be in the seats for you is having to endure this time and time again. You have to get this stuff fixed and soon!

Texan fans..... get in your seats and BE THE HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE! We can ***** and moan all we want, but from 12-3PM get there early, be loud, and stay late! Lets make this a bump in the road..... not a TRAIN WRECK!

Sorry...... had to vent!

Welcome to my life in the club level.

I dont think blaming Bob has anything to do what you are angry about, perhaps blame the NFL who have made it where the league/teams make money from suites/club levels.

Default Re: Houston Texans fans... WOW!

well for one i also m usually the only one cheering even when we are getting our but kicked

- 1 There are ALOT !!! of familys/casuals that go 2 the games and older people and they usually stay pretty quite

-ALOT of KIds 12 years of age or younger while some make nosie others dont fully grasp it yet

- After 7 years of Lows some fans are getting tired ... just tired and not caring about getting loud

But for me i try to pump up the crowd and i usually try and make has much noise but iam only one person in a sea of people

i think in due time when winning happens the crowds will get louder

I just wish tho i see the Pittsburg games the Chicago games and heck now even the Oakland games and there fans i get Jealous

Everyone whines "show up in your seats by kickoff". Why, when the team never bothers to show up until at least October? The fans aren't perfect, but we are better than this team of no-effort quitting losers deserves.

The same thing happened to me last year.I was sitting with my father-in-Law in the club level when we played the Bengals last year...There was a play I saw Andre Wide open. I jumped and screamed AJ"S OPEN!!!! I had multiple people turn and look at me like i disturbed them...I actually had the person in front of me give me a dirty look because he was on his cell phone...Excuse me I thought I was at an NFL game..

I haven't sat with him since and not planning on it...Those Stuck up people can enjoy on there leather couches and I will enjoy sitting near the top screaming my head off and cheering for my football team...Everyone around me seems to be doing the same....

Shame to have Yuppies ruin the fun because they don't want to be bothered by some person" cheering" for there team..

And I have to also agree most of them do sit inside and watch it on Tv. Why the hell would you do that?? Pay all that money to sit on a couch and watch it on TV..I'm really good at that during away games.

Just my 2Cents.

I "think" they cut them down in half, but still asking us to pay the same $7 for a beer. I've got the cups from last year, they're twice as tall. Same diameter, but shorter.

The same is true for the cups for sodas.

IMHO, if they want to get fans in the seats early, they need to make it happy hour from 11 to kick off. $2 drinks.

The beer cups are two ounces smaller but the soda souvenir cups are not. Fill up a cup from last season and pour it into this season's cup. I did that after the Saints game. I was like... what thuhhhh.... The cups look smaller! They're actually shorter but they're larger in diameter. They hold exactly the same amount of soda as they did last season.

I'm not much of a beer drinker myself but I do like my sodas and I hate paying 5.75 for a fountain drink. I was ready to raise heck about the size of the cups myself.

I guess I'll try the "scientific method" when I get home. But they definitely look smaller.

& 2 ounces is still 2 ounces.

I actually was impressed with how much of the stadium was wearing white. It was very loud in the first quarter, until fans realized that it didn't matter how loud we yelled during third down, the Jets were going to convert at a rate of 55% (though it felt higher).

But yeah, you can't go to the Club Level and expect it to feel like a football game. Which it wasn't, but still.

They showed Joe Namath on TV and it looked like he had a seat in the crowd.

Kind of surprising...none of the Jets higher ups would let him sit in their suite?

and on another Joe note..he looks VERY old and feeble. Too many decades of alcoholism I guess.

If you see an opposing fan doing that, narc them out to the yellow shirts or call the fan hotline.

I had the worst case scenario. There are two stubhub seats in front of mine that usually have opposing fans in them. Yesterday, fans sitting there wearing their Jets jerseys were clearly idiots because they would cheer the loudest when their team was on offense.

After one of the TDs, the guy turned around to high five me. He is lucky to still have a hand. Then after a late stupid TD, he turns around and pats me and my friend on the knee in celebration. I gave him the verbal whatfor. He says, hey it's okay, I'm from Dallas. He is very lucky that laser beams do not shoot out of my eyeballs. Actually, the entire Texans team and coaching staff should feel fortunate as well.

Cowboy fan pseudo Jets fan. Blurgh.

If he had cussed or anything, I would have totally narced him out. But then again, he wasn't in his seats much because he was all about getting food.

Default Re: Houston Texans fans... WOW!

I was impressed with the fans I was sitting around, my first time sitting in the bull pen as well, until the mass exodus that is, I stayed to the clock said all 0's, but I am beginning to wonder why I do this to myself. Getting up at the butt crack of dawn, driving 3 hours each way, spending my hard earned money just to be let down over and over. Granted I don't drive in for every game, like some do from the Austin area, so I imagine they are more frustrated than me.

Too many lows and not enough highs with this team. Kubiak did not have this team ready to play yesterday plain and simple, they looked terrible. Kubiak is definitely on the hot seat after that egg they laid yesterday.

They are still my team and I still bleed battle red, and typically after a loss I am upset for a couple of days and really gets me down. But at least when we lose after playing well and fighting hard I can take some comfort in that. When we lose like we did yesterday, when we show up with no heart, it's a huge sign that we are just that mediocre team we have been. I am still going to watch every game, but my expectations are very low for the season now and I will do my best to not let it get to me. Hell, I have been the only one at my job representing the Texans, trying to convert fans over who don't have a team, etc, it's pretty embarassing when they stink up the place.
