    I was told today I couldn't wear my helmet with the real bull horns on it anymore. I have been wearing it since 2001. They finally let me in with it after talking to a few green shirts. Looks like it's time to retire my helmet. First I'll sent an email to the Texans to see if this is true.

    probably one of the "sit down" fans that complain about inability to see the game while they are sitting down.

    Probably because it could cause harm, dumb rule if true, but you couldn't take toe nail clippers and lighters on planes for a while too. Just a liability thing probably, sucks. We have a Dead bull skull my wife painted hanging on our ez up, Always wanted to mount it on a staff and walk in with it, guess that ain't happening

    I was wondering why you didn't have it on. Tell those MF'ers you appreciate the sunburn too.

    A member of the Bull Pen Comittee Who has been coming to the Team before they had a name, Named the Bull Pen, and in the history books as an ultimate fan, At least we had fun in Jacksonville, Thanks Dude. and you cannot bring your helmet, I am sorry but this reeks of that guy in Buffalo with the bolling ball. He was told to move his tailgate but the Bills came out and begged him to stay. you need to send the Letter and if you need I believe you can muster some support if you need it.

    Totally ridiculous.
    I think somehow, someway, you need to get in direct contact with Jamey Rootes.
    This is just totally wrong.

    They don't follow their roof rule, so why should anyone have to follow the other bogus rules they make up!

    You're an icon, man. This is a giant pot of weak sauce being cooked by the front office.

    Get a petition going. I'll sign it, and I'm sure many other fans would join in support.

    Maybe try a lil Makers Mark on those horns, you know how they use the wax? Just coat them in a lil battle red wax dripping down and they won't be such a pointy weapon, a little more soft touch!

    Well, just do what I do when people tell me to sit down ~ lift up my shirt and show them my big, soft, butt.

    I've seen your horns but didn't know they were real. I don't think I would want you sitting next to me and we score a game winning TD as time runs out..lol. Maybe you should put some tennis balls on the each horn. I can see how that could be a safety concern. My prediction is that there will be a lot more restrictions in the future. Standing and cheering will be banned next. First the big tailgating rules changes were made and many people welcomed it, now no horned helmets. Maybe the NFL is trying to piss off the fans so much that they won't care for football next year when they have the lockout????

    I've been wearing these horns since 2002 and haven't had a problem or hurt anyone with them.
