NOt at all. But just as ND, I'd like to submit my opinion as well. When the Texans lose, it ruins my WEEK, we the Texans win it makes my WEEK. Not day.....week. And we are not knowledgable? Why even make that comment. Generalize entire fan bases much? Two can play that game, all Eagles fans are A-holes! See it works both ways.

Did just call ND an ahole? Oops......

Candid comments my ass.

I've always thought that right to work states are much more laid back as sports fans compared to the big union states . I think it's a culture of non confrontation . The east coast folks are also in a more densely populated area which I think makes you more aggressive .

I know this about Eagles fans...they have something in common with Texan fans.....they can not stand the Cowboys...they hate that team.

I take what ND Kalu says as pretty much true. He always tells it like it is and is not going to tell you a load of bs.....

Seems to have come from Kalu:

He said that guys was very upset to see him go because he was a leader. He also said that they knew he wasn't the same player, that the injury he suffered was very severe. He also stated that the Texans felt he was shell of his former self therefore only getting a 4th rounder for him.

Last thing is that a few teams was in on the trade bid for D.Ryans according to Kalu, with the Cowboys having the best offer (3rd rounder). Dallas pulled out when advised by their team doctors to do so. Other teams were offering 5th and 6th rounders.

No doubt, I can readily say that I have enjoyed ND's non-biased, non-BS Texans takes during the season also. In fact, moreso than any other Houston sports commentator.

Oh, yeah, Philadelphia has the best fans!

"During Bounty Bowl II at Veterans Stadium, Philadelphia Eagles fans threw snowballs, chunks of ice, and various other objects at Dallas Cowboys players and officials as revenge against accusations by Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson that Eagles coach Buddy Ryan had placed a "bounty" on the head of Cowboys placekicker Luis Zendejas during the teams' previous meeting. Back judge Al Jury and Cowboys punter Mike Saxon were both knocked to the ground by a barrage of snowballs, CBS broadcasters Verne Lundquist and Terry Bradshaw had to dodge snowballs aimed at the broadcast booth (at one point, with the cameras focused on them, Bradshaw took one and threw it against the wall so viewers could see just how dangerous the snowballs were, while at the end of the game Lundquist claimed on-air that a recent root canal surgery had been less unpleasant than broadcasting the Eagles, and Johnson was booed, pelted with various objects and subject to beer pouring as he was escorted from the field by Philadelphia Police officers as the game ended. - wikipedia

Hope I don't have to get the approval of a call in talk show host to sustain my self esteem. Wonder if ND was considered for the position with Texans that Vandermeer got? Does that mean he is a worse sports announcer?

While I understand what you are saying, at least our fans don't act like the post above. And that' s not an isolated incident. Anyone with a brain, like ND, should know just because dillweeds call into the show that is not a good cross section of representation for our fan base. While on the other Philly fans our notorious for acting like asses. It's an opinon by ND and that's it, opinion. He's got loyalty to the eagles.....BFD.

Some of the comments is some funny stuff. Most of us complain about Vandy and the gang being homers and here you got this guy saying he is a Philly fan first and y'all are ready to run him out of town on rails.

I think the distinction being made is one of polar opposites:

One on hand, there's the Texans fan who calls into the show and says stuff that is weak and maybe even bordering on uneducated....and on the other hand, you have the Philly fan who might or might know much either but he's loud and obnoxious and passionate so he's considered a more hardcore fan.

Both of them are not indicative of the overall "knowledge level" of either sports fans but they both get noticed on radio. I think probably the more educated sports fans choose to not even bother calling into a radio show because they know the whole premise of the show is laughable to begin with...so, why waste time participating in a farce to begin with? Instead, go to a message board and have like-minded conversation with other fans of the team. That's my theory.

It's like bikers. You guys who are legit, you know where to hang out for beers and good conversation...but up the street is a fancy place where all the geek noobie bikers hang out. Because that place is flashy and well-advertised, people assume THAT is where to go if you want to be a biker and talk shop with others. It's the same with any hobby. I rodeo (used to, actually) and I always found it funny how you'd go to a western bar or even a good western clothing store...and you'd see dude'd up people in clothes and stuff that they thought made them look like a cowboy or cowgirl. You can spot 'em a mile away. But to everyone else, they APPEAR to be the genuine article.

Nah, not trying to run him out of town. Could care less actually, but why doesn't he move to Philly and broadcast for the eagles if it's the bee's knees? It doesn't mean I don't think he has good insight or can't appreciate his comments on other topics. And it doesn't mean I think less of him as a person. But his opinion is no more important than yours are mine. I just take issue with him elevating eagles fans over Texans fans. I know many rabid Texans fans that disprove his theory.

Let me ask you this, can you walk up at tailgate in Philly wearing opposing team's colors and get red carpet treatment? That happens every home game in Houston. I think our priorities are in the right place, it's called sportsmanship. And they boo Santa......'nuff said.

Default Re: KILTs N.D. Kalu with some very candid comments in wake of Texans/Eagles DeMeco Tr

People are taking his Philly comments too seriously. For one, philly fans have had the reputation for being "football knowledgable" for years. Its a common statement made by people when talking about the fans in philly.

For two.. Kalu is obviously an eagle fan, so its safe to say that he is closer to the eagle football community, and therefore less likely to see their faults.

For three.. the time ive seen in the Houston football community, especially in our less successfull seasons, leads me to believe that we probably DO have a higher concentration ignorant fans than some other cities. Just keep in mind that no matter what percentage of Texan fans are blathering morons, that doesnt mean that you are any more, or less, knowledgable about the game.

Let it go people. Kalu may have played for us before, but he obviously isnt a Texan fan. What if it had been...i dunno.. Kevin Kolb or Brian Westbrook that made these comments? You would immediately identify them as biased. Kalu is no different.

Whatever the case though.. he is probably right about them being more knowledgable (or more specifically, having a lower percentage of ignorant fans). Big deal. I am obviously biased as well, but if I had to identify the best traits about the Texan fans.. it would be passionate and friendly.


Also..yeah...I doubt Kalu knew the details of what our divisional rivals offered, if anything. He is making an assumption there. It MAY be a correct assumption, but without actual knowledge of what offers were made...we cant really say that there was a different team he could go to that would have been better than the iggles.

I wouldn't read too much into Kalu's comments. He's a smart guy (Rice U.) and knows that they're are very knowledgable fans - everywhere, even in places that don't have an NFL team...

Oh crap!!! If Thorn sees this, you guys are in big trouble!!! He thinks he's right about everything!!!
j/k Thorn...you know where this is coming from.

As far as ND on Philly fans, I didn't read that and think he meant Texan fans aren't knowledgeable. When I read it, my 1st thought was that Texan fans have a filter and took it as a compliment. Philly fans tend to be obnoxious with minds that are made up and won't be confused by facts.
