Default Tailgate Nazis

Still not sure how I feel about the new tailgate policies. I see positives and negatives to both. However, one thing did change on Sunday that is definitely not positive. At 4'oclock our group began packing up. While we were packing, a cop on a golf cart came by and told us to turn down our music, pack up, and get out. So, we turned down the music and continued to pack up. Five minutes later another cop on a golf cart came by and told us we had 10 minutes to pack up and leave and to turn OFF our music while we did it. Within a few minutes after that, while we were collapsing our canopy, yet another cop on a golf cart came by and told us we needed to leave now.

This is easily the rudest we've ever been treated in 6 years of tailgating in the Platinum Lot. Not only was it obvious we were packing up and leaving (about 30 minutes earlier than normal), but it was the first time we've EVER been harassed about it. I understand the feeling on the part of the Texans to tighten the rules a bit, but this is ridiculous. We paid a tremendous amount of money, paid extra for the tailgating passes, followed all the rules, and were packing up an hour after the game like we were supposed to and were still harassed.

I must say, if this is a glimpse into the future, we will have to think long and hard about sinking so much time, energy and money into this organization. Apart from the product on the field, this is the first time I've had a bad taste in my mouth about a game day experience.

I can understand your frustrations.

Texan fans expend lots of time and expense to add to their game day experience. Lately Texan fans efforts have not been rewarded by our teams (home games) on the field performance.

To go through all this only to be rewarded by pathetic play and now the apparent thankless treatment by the organization can't help but have a detrimental effect on their loyal fans.

Your treatment might be attributed to minimal employees on an ego trip. If that is the case a letter to management might help.

I am not that great a fan, but I have witnessed how great some of the Texans fans are. The loyalty they have given to this team deserves better treatment than what you have described.

There is nothing more obnoxious than being told to do something more than once when you are already complying.

(It works in marriage that way as well)

I am convinced that the less power an individual has the right to deploy, the more vehemently he is going to deploy it. A golf cart riding tailgate security officer fits the bill as someone who is going to enjoy his power trip. If I were you, I would write to the Texans and make sure they realize that their employees are treating their customers so rudely.

If you had been doing anything wrong, thats one thing. But to be actively cleaning up and following rules only to be yelled at by 3 separate guys who obviously weren't communicating would have made me really upset.

Kudos to you for keeping your cool

Bullseye - I wonder if someone (wrongfully or rightfully) complained about you? Because it sounds like it wasn't a coincidence.

Just pull out your camera and film the ***** next time. For some reason the real or rental cops hate to be filmed. I don't want to bash the cops but you guys were having to much fun and they had to work. You guys were showing off eating good food, having your drinky drinks and they have to work. I think they already ruined the tailgating but it will probably be worse. Where were these cops at when the guy got knocked out? Not there..thats trouble...it's easier to harrass you guys who are having just to much fun...come on and admit it...you saw the cops coming and starting have more fun just to rub it in..lol. I couldn't wait for the season to start but after two home games I feel like oh hum.

I have yet to have anyone explain to me how the new policy has 'ruined tailgating.'

I've only been given concrete examples of inconveniences....?

For example, some of my folks were inconvenienced because they had to wait for 30 minutes at the gate (they park at the Crown Plaza).

I'm waiting for someone to say "The new policy actually destroyed my tailgate because ________."

Yankee I think you got it right. Some people hate to see others have fun. The people that probably complained on them are the same people who come to a football game and complain when others stand up or make noise. Those cops at the crosswalks can get pretty funky too.....it's not my fault they took that job and have to work.

This is my point of view ......and correct me if I'm wrong....I take it that you are in a crew where most of the people that you tailgate with go in the games together...they ruined it for me because I bring my pit and just can't leave it sitting out there unattended. We had people that would have tickets and a lot of times would give them away just to tailgate. It's ruined for me because most of my crew that pit sitter are just gone to Astroworld to tailgate....so whats good for you may not be good for me. It's ok though...I was already spending to much time and money with this team...it feels ok to get home for the second half of the other NFL games.

How about me having to walk all the way down to West Gate, just to walk back to our spot? That sucked!!!

But thanks for working on another alternative with the Texans for that.

So your friends, who have game tickets but give them away because they would rather tailgate than go into the game, bailed on you to pay $20 to park at Atsroworld rather than pay $10 each for a tailgate ticket? Or am I misunderstanding?

Why not sell their tickets for $10 each to cover the $10 tailgating ticket cost?

No they go in the games now but the main pit sitters didn't have tickets...but its ok. As long as Pappadeaux is right around the corner when I get out of the game I'm fine. Getting up at the crack of dawn to get ready to head to the stadium gets old...especially when we have back to back games. I actually had some energy left when I got home after the Giants game. I'm not going to whine about something I have no control over .....I would rather just say screw it than try to make "tailgating" work. They didn't bail on me..they had not other choice ...I'll probably do the monday night game at astroworld and walk over. I'll save my BBquing for cookoffs

Woah, easy there...last I heard, welfare recipients DIDN'T work much or at all. I'm sure those attendants are under the gun too with these new rules and have to be firm so the REAL 'free loaders'/thugs don't ruin everyone's fun including you and your wife. If you can't go that way, or park there, there's a reason why I'm sure. Having game day or season tickets doesn't give you the right at all to be judging folks or going off on the attendants who are WORKING and doing a thankless job so that your high and mighty self can park in the lot and enjoy your bbq/beer. Some people I swear.
