Been a Texans fan since 2005. Indiana has too much of a Colts fan base. I for one may live in Indiana, But my Heart is deep steel blue, with battle red blood running though it. My liberty white blood cells will defend me against the infectious horseshoe fungi.
I am the only Texan fan up here i have seen.

Lots of Broncos & some Raiders & 49ers fans in Idaho, but I did see a guy in Vegas @ Harrahs last year wearing a Schaub jersey. However when I talked to him found out he was from Houston. Guess we can't count him can we ?

When there are Texans games here, there is always a nice showing of Texans fans who I assume are from the area. We have not figured out how to get a good congregation of fans to establish a bar as ours, but really we are around in decent amount, just no more coverage in the area than any other generic NFL team.

Cowboy fans have a real love/hate with Romo. It is pretty funny.

I'm working about 45 min. from Pittsburgh and a couple of hours from Cleveland and I had to bring back 3 Texans hats for guys I work with. I'll be working in Indiana on Monday, but I doubt they'll be as receptive to the idea.

I've seen a lot more Texans hats around town this year. And when I do (and not wearing my own Texan gear) I go out of my way to say nice hat/shirt Go TEXANS....etc.

Winning does wonders.

QFT

Without a geographic tie to the team, most folks require winning to be something they want to associate with in order to justify jumping on the bandwagon.

Historically, the Cowboys have provided that, and understandable why they have generations of fans in Texas now.

Agreed. I hardly see any Texans fan around the city. There are quite a few on the UTSA campus but everywhere else is dominated by the horrible gray and blue colors.

Default Re: The Texans in Texas

When I lived in El Paso there were more Steelers fans than there were Texans fans. Cowboys was by far the dominant team.

I don't think anyone actively roots against the Texans in Texas, it's just that the team has been on no one's radar. Marginal fans jump on the bandwagon when a team starts to win (and jump off when they start to lose). We'll get the fans, we just need to put together a few winning seasons.

Default Re: The Texans in Texas

I know this topic is supposed to deal with Texan fans in Texas, but I'd like to share regardless. Being in New Orleans, I never met another die-hard Texan fan. Funny story though: I was working and I saw this guy coming passed me who was decked out in Texan gear. He was wearing t-shirt with the Houston Texans logo on it, Texans shorts, a Texans cap, wristbands, the whole shebang. Naturally I got excited to finally see a big Texans fan in my area, so I immediately asked him, "Texan fan, eh? Awesome." He laughed and replied, "Sort've. I used to play for them."

I didn't recognize him. I asked him for his name but he just laughed. He was on the phone and I wasn't going to bother him. Could never figure out who he was though.

Anyhoo, as far as casual Texans fans go out of state, the sad truth is that most don't even know the team exist. When people ask me what my favorite team is and I tell them the Texans, their next question is usually "You mean the Cowboys?"

I've lived in every continental time zone and have rarely seen another Texan fan. I guy a worked with from Cali was a random big fan. Now that I live in San Diego, I have met two...a husband/wife combo at a Longhorn watch party.

The funny thing in SoCal is everybody has a different team, so you'll see every jersey around all sprinkled with some Chargers crap. It really is the perfect place to root for another team because everyone gets some respect.

I get the routine, "they have a good team" & "I really like their team" stuff, nobody hates us like the pats here.

I will never convert from Houston sports.

I don't know about fans, but I've already been approached by several new "casual observers" today.

They're even using the word "we" when talking about that team.


"We sure made it tough on Colt McCoy."

"We've got one hell of a defense"

"Our back-up running back would be starting on most other teams"

etc... etc.. etc...

Here in Bryan/College-Station, there are a fair number of Texans fans. I see people fairly regularly around town (and at A&M) with Texans gear on.

I think there are more Cowboys fans here, though it's not an overwhelmingly larger number. There's a Cowboys store in the mall (by the way, do the Texans even have such stores, and are any of them outside of Houston?). We are positioned just right, so that the CBS affiliate considers the Texans the "home" team, and the Fox affiliate considers the Cowboys the "home" team. We get the preseason commentary/games for both the Texans and the Cowboys. They get fairly even coverage in the newspaper, also (though if anything, the Cowboys get a little more).
