"Based on general interest in the Texans and Cowboys in both markets we stand by this decision," Lou D'Ermilio, a FOX Sports spokesman, told ProFootballTalk.com. on Monday. "The Texans rating in Austin was a 12.1, while the Cowboy rating was a 21.7. In San Antonio, the Texans posted a 14.8, while the Cowboys did a 27.9."

I'll tell you what, there's not as much difference in those ratings as I expected ?
Hey I mean those are big margins (especially in SA), but atleast the Texans are
on the radar. I mean from things I've heard, I thought maybe the ratio might be 4 or 5 to 1 ?

Same thing happened to my crew down in Port Aransas this weekend. Cut away with 8 seconds left to see 2 white dudes talking to eachother. I wasnt at home so I couldnt switch over to check Sunday Ticket... - Mandatory Kickoff Markets's is a dumb rule that needs to be modified.

Here's what I think.....

IMO, the Texans game also had PITT - CIN on CBS to compete with thereby "Ross Perot-ing" ratings away from the Texans game. Cowboys on FOX had NO competition so ANY football fans of ANY team were watching it.

I would love to see this brought up to that schmuck FOX Sports CEO guy in the PFT.com article.

I still do not understand how the entire state of Texas was a mandatory kickoff area for the Cowboys. I live in DFW so I understood why the game was cut here. It makes no sense that the last 8 seconds had to be cut in Austin and San Antonio.

Default Re: Hate San Antonio Fox Station

bottom line i freaking hate the Cowboys and their d-baggery of a fan base

Note this is a generalization and not to be taken personally. I was at Reliant last year so Im done being politcal with them.. and live in SA with alot of the most obnoxious cowboy fans so...yeah I have all the evidence i need. I know there is one or two nice and polite Cowboy fans and im not talkin about you,but in general I dont like them. I dont buy a damn thing those Cowboy lovin tv guys say.
They are what is keepin SA from getting a team....but oh well Im over all this mess. OUR FREAKIN TEAM IN 9-3 ...thats all that matters.
