Default Organized fan protest underway

Callers to SportsTalk790 are trying to organize a protest. Season ticket holders go to Reliant to return their jags tickets in person.

Yeah, I've been listening to the entire thing. A guy called into the "mighty Gwinn" show and said that tomorrow he was going to put his tickets into a envelope and hand deliver them to McNair....he knows he won't be able to see McNair personally, but he'll talk to whoever will see him and tell them that he isn't renewing his season tickets unless serious changes are made. Gwinn asked him to call back afterwords and report on their reaction. Other callers thought that was a great idea so they said they would do the same. Now texters and emailers are saying they're going to do the same......hand over their tickets and their PSLs and then report back to Gwinn and tell him what the Texans said.

You tell Mr. Burge that I will gladly relinquish my tickets once they have been scanned and we have been granted access to the stadium.

Because...

I will look for him during the game. His seats are within eyeshot from my sky-high seats. I bet he'll be firmly planted into his seats as usual along with those fancy all-access creditentials I have seen him wear around his neck.

BUT BUT BUT...

I won't hold it against aj for showing up. He's got a job to do and I can understand that but to call for this protest... is kinda a slap in the face unless he gives a promise to participate in full.

I guess I'm a skeptic. I think I'll look for secondhoneymoon and his brother and partipate in their protest. Seems a bit more reasonable to walk a picket line in front of 70k fans plus the city of Houston passing by on 610.

Yes, I love it! We've always been complaining and take no action. I hope there's a huge outcome so McNair gets the message.

I was listening to this today too and love the idea. If not I don't see the big issue with a silent protest. If people are so into tailgating and all they don't want to miss their last chance then tailgate and don't go in for the first 5 minutes of the game. You are at the game, you get your fun and the palce is really empty for part of the quarter.

I can understand that returning your tickets sends a strong message, but I think there is alot of people who are reluctant to give back something that they worked hard and paid for.

I think if people were to organize a picket outside of reliant alot more people would get involved since they would not be out any money. This week would be ideal for this because there is alot of people off for the Holidays, and the power of numbers could send out a stronger message than a few returning there tickets.

Please let's make this happen! I'm not a season ticket holder, but you guys who buy and spend your hard earned dollar on buying season tickets can make a real impact. We need to send a strong message to Mr.McNair that this is unacceptable. He's a business man who understands money and if he sees his season ticket holders pissed off he will take notice of that. And we as fans should in general hold a protest of some sort soon so that our displeasure with this team can be heard loud and clear.

I'll tell you what... I'll sell you my tickets and parking pass at cost and you can protest in my name as SEASON TICKET HOLDER.

Fair enough?

The people in the upper rows of Sections 351 and 352 have a real opportunity to get Bob's attention. Those sections are directly in front of his suite. Make some big signs demanding that this spineless and clueless coaching staff needs to be fired. Hold them up for the entire game.

I have a lot of season tickets provided to me by my company. We give those tickets away to clients. But, as of recently, it seems that clients aren't as interested in the Texans anymore.

Guess I'll have to relay that message upstairs, McNair. That's one less sponsorship.

Oooooooo!!!

Biting the hand that feeds you is always a risky move. The rewards and consequences are equally great.

Im willing to send my tickets for the Jags game to McNair.

He sits directly behind Section 352, when I go to the restroom I see him looking at the game with his binoculars all the time.

Maybe I should attend the game and have a big poster saying "US SEASON TICKET HOLDERS WANT CHANGE!!" on the front and back.

Im pretty sure he will see the sign if im standing up.
