The REAL fans know who they are. I mentioned Joe and Bill as yard sticks. Didn't know so many people would take a brotha literally.

Well I don't know about you guys but I have been a fan of the Texans since before football even existed. I don't think you can judge fandom based on rep points, join dates, or how many times you have posted. Just because someone is new to the forums doesn't mean they have sat at home, gone to games, or gone to a bar to have their hopes crushed week after grueling week for a decade of miserable football and heinous mental errors.

But seriously here, I don't really give a crap if people are starting to jump on the Texans bandwagon, I would rather see some Texans bumper stickers on cars instead of the two brand new Saints flags after they won the Superbowl or have to deal with ridiculous Romo apologizers.

lol! Funny about your last sentence. I'm a glutton for punishment and sat through every second of 2-14 home games. Muttering something about it paying dividends down the road and convincing ourselves that this is what fans do. We'll be old men shaking our wrinkled fists when the Texans finally make it, but we were true to our team and all that jazz.

Nothing worse than riding into work on a Monday morning & hearing:

If we win....." Man, schaub tore them up yesterday, Outside of Brady & Manning, i think schaub's right there in that top 5 qb class!"............

Now, If we lose.......... "I don't care that schaub threw for 465 yds & 3 TD's.......he still sucks b/c...."

i swear my head is about to explode sometimes listening to that drivel.
yeah, well, that's a good point. I have avoided sports talk because of the doofus callers. I tend to get my updates and interaction from this forum, where folks have to hold their own - or at least try - because there is a feedback loop.

I find that music is much more enjoyable than listening to the people that you mention, so might I suggest a good Pantera cd for you?

Default Re: Where are all these BANDWAGON Muff-huggas coming from?!

I've been a fan since 03 or so and watched throughout the 2-14 season, and all the same family and friends who laughed at me then are now sporting gear and having watch parties.

And to that I say... more power to you. I wouldn't wish my kind of suffering on people. I'm masochistic I guess, but I'm not going to wish that kind of crap product on others

Good teams always pick up fair weather fans. If we start losing, they'll all just fall off the wagon and say "see I told you they suck." And thats fine.

As has been mentioned earlier, I'd rather have a stadium packed with half "die hards" and half "fair weathers" than half empty.

I don't like to grade people as "real" fans or not. It seems insecure. I know how much of a fan I am and thats good enough for me.

Ha! I forgot that was one of the possible names.

Here's a video of the unveiling of the team name, colors, and logo at an event that took place in downtown Houston back in 2000.

At the 23 second mark, I can be seen front and center, standing next to my ex-wife---the woman with the Jackie-O sunglasses and the bare shoulders.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AU4TfRD961c

Bought my first Texans t-shirt there that day----the very moment they first became available.

If you had told me that day that my new team wouldn't sniff the playoffs for ten years, I honestly wouldn't have been too surprised and I'd still be a fan.

1. Illustrates my point.
2. Valid point...
3. Duly noted. I wasn't trying to be a jerk, I'm just not a fan of bandwagon types.

My wife still hates Matt Schaub because of that statement. She makes no bones about it. Women are funny that way. She doesn't want him as our QB, she roots for the Texans to draft a QB, and she blasts Matt Schaub for every single mistake or incompletion. She hates him. Women can divest themselves of logic when they want.

I'm not gonna lie, i have a real bias towards fairweather fans B/c i think there's something to be said for hanging in there with your team when things aren't great ........That tells me that there's a real bond there & that you live & die with the team.

Hahaha. I was pretty pissed at his statement also but got over it quick.

I think it comes down to like gtexan02 said who or how do you determine who a true fan is or who is a fairweather one?

I wasn't sitting at the games during 2005, but rather at a watering hole about 10 miles outside of Boston every Sunday that season with either a "HWSNBN" or Sharper Jersey on. The local Pat's fans either commended me for dedication or thought I was a little slow in the brain.

I think all Texans fans have to be at least a little slow in the brain. How else can you explain the dedication?

I've also been a fan since they announced that Houston was getting another team (I'm glad they didn't go with the Centurions, I'm betting noone would have been able to say that one correctly too many times). I was stationed in Germany, was wearing a Texans hat and everyone kept asking me who the hell they were!

I haven't lived in Texas since I joined the AF in '92 and finally got to attend my first live game last year (@ Redskins) and had a blast.

I've been rolling with "my" Texans, good or bad, since the beginning (I was never a really big computer guy-hence my late arrival at this site but now I'm religious about looking and reading).

I'm new to this forum (been kind of reading it since last year, but only joined this season), but I've been a Texans fan pretty much since the Oilers left. When the NFL announced that they would add another expansion team back then, I followed the stadium/team financing plans and was happy to see LA crap their pants which gave us a chance.

I'm excited about this season. Bandwagon fans show up with any successful team, so it's a good sign!

If your co-workers have given you shit for the collossal ways the Texans have snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, noone can question whether you are a fan of this team.

That's me in late 2000 at an AAU meet deadlifting 435# in a Texans tee-shirt.

I didn't join Texans Talk until the Mario draft.

That's some of my evidence of fandom.

The REAL fans are the ones who've been here since that first win against the Cowgirls. REAL fans remember holding on to hope in the David Carr, Dom Capers Charlie Casterly days, we remember the under 500 seasons and REMAINED and will no matter HOW the rest of this season turns out. The fair weather fans need to just keep their mouths shut, because if the Texans blow a playoff game they'll be the first ones going on channel 11, 13 and 2 and saying "I knew they weren't gonna win...".
In my opinion if you've ever sat next to Either Joe or Bill during a game...you can hold your head high and call yourself a true Texan fan.
I gotta disagree with you here. I don't like the bandwagon fans, but their presence means the Texans are doing well. bandwagon fans only jump on a team that is playing well. The more bandwagon fans means the better the team is doing. I would rather have the team being super successful with millions of bandwagon fans than ineptitude.

Besides, remember this: as much as they cheer, as much money they spend on gear, as happy as they are when the team is successful, they will never equal your level of happiness when the team is successful. You have invested a lot in this team emotionally, and that can only be duplicated by a similar long term investment.
