I'm not a Tebow hater, but damn if Tebow-mania hasn't taken over where "Favre watch" left off!

He's not the only guy playing football, people!!

About Dukes...kinda' disappointed that he'd tweet such an a-hole statement. Now I just look forward to the inevitable news story that he's choked on a chicken bone...

Just because the immediate media reaction isn't to stop all the presses and praise the Texans great win doesn't mean we're not liked or respected nationally. And, even if we aren't, so what?
Just caught this. Great article and thanks much for sharing.

The celebration of clinching a playoff spot is big news here because it hasn't happened to a pro football team in almost 20 years, but don't expect that to be headline grabbing in the national media. We are the best team in a very weak division so it makes sense that we would clinch a spot early. Not a surprise. It has been expected to happen for weeks.

If I could choose which commentators should hate the Texans, I would want Skip Bayless at the top of that list.

Its a pretty dumb statement by Dukes period. Mainly because Texans fans haven't been quiet at all. We've been screaming wanting a playoff team and we finally got it. Dude is a chump though. His show on NFL network lasted all of 2 seconds.

Jemele Hill is terrific. Not hating on her.

I'm talking about the types who don't seem to get this team yet - and ESPN has a large number of those. I still will never get off the point that UTESPN threw down 20 years for the Longhorn Network. I get that there are a lot of UT alums in this world but this is just the kind of thing both of those parties would do. Money grab until they own it all. ESPN also doesn't seem to understand that UT is not TEXAS. They are not one in the same.

Certainly there are some good national pundits i respect, Rome and Hill are probably the two most prominent. Rome has had Houston Texans players on his major shows for a number of years.

But the majority can go take a hike. BTW Joe Buck at FOX is right near the top of that list too.

PS - I get that there are good UT fans out there - probably some on this website so spare me that BS. The administrations of both parties, UT and ESPN, really tick me off though.

Well, apparently Warren Sapp is a fan. He thinks we are the best team in the AFC, and by "we" that's actually what he says in this clip.

Way to take a thread specifically about the NFL network disrespecting the Texans and spin up an anti-Longhorn/ anti-ESPN rant.

Agenda much?

No agenda, just truth.

ESPN is not covering the Texans because THEY DON'T WANT TO (except for people at that network like Hill who have an open mind and take a genuine interest). They want to cover teams and headlines that sell. The Longhorn Network signing for 20 years reflects that. The Tebow coverage reflects that. Covering only a specific few teams a year like the Steelers, Ravens, Patriots, Packers reflects exactly that.

Like it or not, it's right in front of your face. ESPN picks and chooses who they want to cover. They are, officially, in league with certain NFL and college teams, of this I am certain.

Which is why I don't watch about 95 percent of their programming unless it's games. They are no longer about journalism - they are about money. And UT gobbling up that 20 year contract proves they are all about making a buck as well - their admin doesn't give a flying rat's behind about you or me and neither does ESPN.

Both have heartless, soulless greedy administrations who drive out all their competition instead of letting their competition make them better. They stack the deck in their favor which is not how you become great. You become great by letting competition make you better.

The main point of my post was that your response was off topic to the thread. There are plenty of other places to discuss the topic that you're posting about.

Having said that, I don't disagree with what you said. It's just not really relevant to this thread.

Earlier this year, I waited through an hour of game summaries that I didn't care about just to have the Texans highlights disappear from the list. I guess the Chiefs or the Bears were more important.
