Default VICTORY IS OURS!! Our email campaign worked! FOX will show Texans vs. 49ers!

Er, I should add to that title - "In Austin"

Story

The Cowboys games starts at 315, so as long as the Texans game is over by then, we'll be fine. But remember - Fox WILL SWITCH THE FEED at 315 regardless of what's going on.

Good job everyone!

Thanks to all that emailed and called!!!

Holy Crap!! I guess Fox 7 really doesn't want to be another KEYE. Awesome news, I just called my dad and made his day. Together we decided Jerry Jones had something to do with the Texans getting snubbed on "his" NFL channel.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm e-mailing Fox 7 and thanking them for actually listening and making a change in order to do the right thing.

Thanks for posting this and making my dad's day DieHard!

Good morning,

Why on earth would y’all show the Vikings/Steelers game on Sunday? The Texans are playing!!!
I am a diehard Texans fan and I know a ton of fans here in Austin and I am confused as to the reasoning behind your decision! I am sure you realize that we live in TEXAS not Minnesota nor Pennsylvania! The Texans are in the hunt for a playoff berth and this is a game that is a must win!
Matt Schaub is the #1 rated QB in the league right now, Andre Johnson is the best receiver in the NFL, over the last 3 games the Defense is ranked #3!
On the other side of the ball, Michael Crabtree is starting his first game as a rookie after a LONG holdout (he played for a Texas college team you may remember)!
You don’t have to worry about what you are going up against on KEYE, they are showing Patriots/Bucs (yuck…that is a 60-0 blowout waiting to happen! And they are not even playing in the USA!!!) You are going to win the ratings battle no matter what you show! So, stay loyal to your LOCAL viewers! We are counting on you!!!
Please rectify this situation!

I await your response,

Steve Owen

That is cool!!

This is what we need to do next. Contact the RGV Fox station and tell them what the Austin station did. Tell them that a Texas station supports Texas teams. Use all those good arguments about Schaub and Crabtree.

Keep the fire brewing. Even if we don't get our way THIS time, it will make them think twice for next time.

"Since FOX 7 switched the games we will not be part of the mandatory kickoff for the Cowboys 3:15pm game."

So now we do not have to worry about losing the end of the game
