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.

So was I Steph! A lot of fans got the message and wore white. The others either just don't care, or they own one Texan jersey and intend to wear it regardless.

As for fights? If you are a PSL owner you better control the fans who sit in your seats. The guy who sits in front of me got a taste of the Texans rath after the Vikes game. His friend got into a verbal shouting match with another fan, over something silly, a lot of four letter words were exchanged, almost a fight, but, it got stopped by other fans. Someone reported him. He got a phone call from the Texans on Tuesday with pretty much a threat of losing his PSLs because cursing and shooting the finger is not acceptable. They told him they would be watching him. Well, the guy who owns the seats didn't do anything, but, he got the blame, and the threat. I have NO idea how it works with Stub Hub or E-Bay.

BTW: The yellow shirt did NOTHING! He stood at the end of the row with his sunglasses on and watched the game on the big screen. He was totally oblivious to the encounter, as he has been to other encounters in section 116. If anyone needed to be reported, it was him. JMO!

I wonder if anyone called on the guy in Sec 123 row A about that "Let's give Mark a dirty Sanchez" poster he was holding up....the cheerleaders gave him disgusted looks, but thats about it...the guy in yellow with the cheerleaders did nothing....

It's really pretty simple;

when this team wins football games you won't have to beg fans to be in their seats or be loud. They'll be there.

I take full responsibility for the loss yesterday, since I don't buy into the silly-ass, kindergartenish Liberty White, Battle Red or Steel Blue days, I didn't wear white. Plus I didn't stay to the end of the game, for the same reason I don't stop to look at car wrecks. Yea...........

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.
$2 from 11-12????? NOW THATS AN IDEA!!!!!!!!!!

I get annoyed with people who are upset that fans don't buy enough colors of jerseys. Just because the team went with some crazy rainbow of uniforms where they flip a coin to figure their colors for the day doesn't mean that the average fan can afford to.

Want all the fans to be consistent and wear the same colors? Have the team be consistent and wear the same colors. The reason fans in other towns can remember what color to wear is their team always wears the same colors. Imagine if the Steelers went with black, white, and just for fun fuschia. And you aren't a real fan unless you eschew the black and gold for the pink.

The "wear one color" works great for college games..when you watch some of the big games on TV the stands are an ocean usually of the home team colors.

I have a blue DeMeco Ryans jersey but my wife has a white Ahman Green jersey. I wore it yesterday despite it being too small and has a permanent lipstick stain on it. I'm dreading battle red day because my 7 year old son has a Red Schaub jersey...

I'm a fan.

Not picking on you DanB, but c'mon. How many people don't own a WHITE shirt? In the case of the Texans, the colors are Red, White & Blue. I've seen those colors on a couple of flags somewhere, I just can't put my finger on it...

Now Jags fans OTOH...well, just dress like a tarp.

Right but my point is that when the Texans sometimes wear blue and sometimes wear white and sometimes wear red if it's a big game, no one knows what the heck to wear on a given day. The Cowboys and Steelers wear white at home. The Packers wear green. The Texans should always wear one color at home. I kind of prefer the red, but frankly I don't care (unless it's teal) as long as they stick with it. I'm just saying when the appear to randomly choose what color to wear they shouldn't be shocked when fans do the same.

I'm sure it is. But other teams don't need a website to tell their fans what to wear that day. When they wear an alternate, it is promoted in ads and otherwise made clear to the fans or they hand out T shirts for the game. Otherwise they wear what they always wear.

OMG!!! Why is this such a big freaking deal?? Who gives a flying flip what people are wearing and what the damn stadium looks like? Are you serious?

FWIW and for as much complaining as there is about the guy who wore blue, I thought the crowd looked pretty damn white. Mission accomplished for you folks worried about that crap.

IF ONLY more fans had wore Surrender White...errrr....I mean Liberty White, the team could have been inspired to pay better.

yeah, riiiiiiight.

I have reached the conclusion that nothing the fans do makes much of a difference to the players on the field. "Homefield advantage" only works for good teams that inspire their fans, not the other way around.

Cheering "another Houston Texans first down!" in a blowout does a lot for confidence, too. [/sarcasm]

I agree with old-school tradition. But I'm not the modern ADD-fan that this marketing company...errr...football franchise is selling to apparently, because I find the whole idea of rotating jerseys to be goofy and Bush League. JMO

Not picking on you disaacks, but how many established winning teams have six different uniform combinations for eight home games? When you turn on the tv, you know if the Steelers are home or away because of their jerseys. Tradition is established through winning, not through marketing.

And what difference does it make what color anyone wears? It does not matter to players, so it's the Queer Eye for the Football Guy fans that seem to get whiny over the subject.

Straight up. I'm only wearing my custom blue jersey to games, and I could give a rat's ass if I'm color coordinating with other fans and what the football players are made to wear. It's utter nonsense for this to even be an issue when you have a team that is traditionally lousy.

Yeah, yeah I know. That includes their throw-back AFL unis.
