    NOOOO!!!

    What were they thinking, what about all the out of towners?? I have always wanted to go, finally was able to get season tix this year and now it is going to be on a weeknight.

    Anyhow, thanks for posting Kay, I have been very curious about when it was going to happen.

    This being on a weeknight makes 0 sense to me.

    I found this information on the Houston Texans site-

    click fan zone
    click calendar
    click next month twice to get to May
    and you will see it there. :) click on details for more information

    As far as I know, he is doing well. He has slowed down a lot personally so that is a plus. I hope that he will be at All Access. I know that the fans will be happy to see them there. :fans:

    Well, looks like they killed any chance of it being an annual thing for me. Can't wait to hear the reasoning behind putting it on a weekday evening. What's next, Wednesday afternoon (business man's special) games?

    I would love to know the rationale behind this lovely decision. This is a really dumb idea.:gun:

    This makes little sense, unless they wanted to limit the amount of people going to the event. Maybe that is the thought behind it. That is definitely going to be the result.

    It helps our house that this is the last day of school, so it is a work night - but not a school night.

    I will be there, but Thursday night just blows for an All Access event.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this is the last one, too. There's not much money to be made at this thing, IMO.

    This is for season ticket holders only, right? They've made plenty of money to put it on.

    It's the 2nd to last day of school/work for me...very strange. I'll see what I can find out over the next few weeks.

    Have the Texans decided to start being more "Fan-Unfriendly" or what?

    Three days after Memorial Day, in the middle of the week?

    Thanks for the heads up on this Kay...maybe w/ this much advance warning we can try to find a way to get there.

    DISCLAIMER - Yes, I'm still thrilled we still get to HAVE such events, but that doesn't make the time slot & day scheduled for this any LESS dumb.

    The way we see it, you are right.

    But, to the Texans, it probably cost them for the actual event, just due to hiring security, yellow shirts, and people to work concessions. The event itself probably doesn't make much, if any, profit.

    I will have to take a day off of work just to go unless my wife doesn't want to go and that's if I can figure out what to do with the kids. Two days off if I drive in and we stay with my parents, that is if school is out. Putting this on a weeknight make the logistics a nightmare since I am 3 hours away.
