I mean for christ sake.. I am doing the exact same thing that I am accusing yankees of doing in my post :P

And Imatexan.. ive lived in Houston all my life, and I think you need to open your eyes.

The Astrodome is still standing and for the reasons that Demeco stated..amongst others. And houston does have a high percentage of Cowboy and Titan fans. They dont outnumber Texan fans I would think, but they would probably outnumber Steeler fans in Philly.

The Texans are a new team without much history. We were just excited to hit the playoffs and didnt get all that upset for not getting to the superbowl.

Houston is an incredibly spread out city. The largest city in the western hemisphere when it comes to how spread out it is.


Where exactly am I turning a blind eye here?


Geez.. get over it people. Demeco said nothing wrong. The only thing in that article worth getting your panties in a twist about is the tone that the writer set. He is the one that makes Demeco's comments seem like they are implied insults.
1. No we don't have the Liberty Bell but acting like the Astrodome is the only place of any historical significant is inaccurate. San Jacinto monument? NASA? Historical Galveston?

2.The Texans have a very passionate fan base, I don't know why I need to even state this on a Texans message board. I am not denying that there are many Cowboys fans but to say that "some people are Texans fans" is wrong, more inaccurate "facts".

3. Largest city in the Western Hemisphere? I know you don't mean population so you must mean by land area, in which case in the continuous 48 States for larger cities Jacksonville and OKC are larger.
Also I can tell you living in LA that Houston is big but nothing compared to how LA never ends.

It does not take 20 minutes to get anywhere unless you live in the suburbs and I am sure that if you lived in the suburbs of Philly it would be the same. When I was living in Houston inside the loop I could easily get to anywhere I needed to go within 10 minutes. I mean where do you need to go, work? Grocery Stores? Restaurants? Movies? Sports stadiums? Shopping? Medical facilities?

He also states "no real downtown"...another false statement.
I mean you would think 3 professional sports stadiums, the second largest theater district in the US, concert venues, local government, shopping, parks, food, key business center, I could go on...

I don't see the need to defend Demeco. All we showed him was love and I am not saying that he is bashing and hating Houston but what he says to someone who has never been could paint an inaccurate picture.

I don't buy that. I think Texan fans were happy with making the playoffs because they had a 3d string QB running the show. Also a decade of mediocrity will make you appreciate the small things your team does right. No way are we "satisfied" with a trip to the playoffs.

Throwing trash and booing your team isn't going to do anything in the long run or the short term. Being an a-hole doesn't make you a great fan.

When we lived in Pennsylvania, there were deer all over the place. They were extremely thick (and dangerous) through New Jersey.

What really surprised me when I lived up there was how freaking rural everything is. I'd always imagined the north as one giant factory with concrete covering everything. But it's actually very... natural. Lots of forests and woodlands.

A friend of mine lives up near Woodstock, NY, and it's like being out in the country in Texas. Except with more snow.

Of course he's going to talk up the place he plays at now. No foul here, he's just trying to get the fans over there on his side, wish him the best.

Those aren't deer -- those are guys dressed up like deer hoping to burglarize his house. They're all over the city of brotherly love.

This, I was THRILLED they made the playoffs with Schaub out, considering I was cursing thinking it was all over when he went down.

The fact is, being REAL about situations and not flipping out like a child, throwing trash, flipping cars, rioting etc.... all the things that these "passionate/educated" fans do, does not mean you accept and strive for mediocrity.

My expectations are no less than the SB this time around, they have shown me by last season they have it in them (and with all the "adversity", so YES I was thrilled) anything less this season.... is unacceptable. I will remain a fan of my team no matter what, but anything less than that and someone better be gone. (Yes, no excuses SB or gone)
