    Looks like FOX is broadcasting the dull@$$ game @ noon instead of the texans game. Cannot blame them, dallas does have a 11-1 record.
    I will be in huntsville this weekend so I will be watching at the other house on DISH. I will have my tiVo record the dallas game here.

    Good thing I'll be in Vegas and can catch the game in the sportsbook. :)

    RGV is the same deal. Cowboys are on at noon on Fox, so Texans game is an afterthought. :bat: I'm gonna be glued to the pc, that's for sure. Last time Texans will be on Fox, thank god.:texflag:

    I was at the Las Vegas Hilton watching the game last weekend. 11 screens and $1 beer and hotdogs. Plus this guy kept giving me free coupons for Las Vegas vodka shots.

    It was very challenging trying to keep up with the Texans, with all the other screens going. The main screen was the Indy game and that was what we were hearing also. I kept getting distracted and would miss a play. Or the announcing didn't match up to what I was seeing. But it was really fun. I would do it every Sunday if I could.

    Anyway, have a great time in Vegas.

    The Texans are out of it. We aren't in contention. Why the surprise?

    Not really shocked by this. Cowboys pretty much own this state, except for the eastern part, until the Texans start winning.

    Honestly, I dont blame them. As much as I lvoe the Texans, it makes zero sense to play them over the cowboys. One team is winning and playing good football. One team is playing street FAs and getting beat week in and week out

    Yeah, I understand this and am happy to save my bitching for when it's legit.

    Not here in SA but its understandable. They have shown the game here every week so no complaints.

    Thanks!

    It is hard to watch in a sportsbook, especially since I'm usually the only person in the entire place interested in that game! Last time I was there one guy tried to change one of the TVs and I yelled at him to back off! I think he was a little surprised. :)

    Maybe in 2-3 years we can have dreams of an all-Texas Super Bowl, like in the mid-90's. As much as I hate Dallas, it would be amazing to see the Texans and Cowboys in a championship showdown in 2010.

    I can understand Fox, because they're the cowgirls station...but not keye(sucks) because they are SUPPOSED to be the Texans station WIN OR LOSE. I bet that even if we start winning more consistently, keye(sucks) will still show the Bud Adams Family Hour instead.

    It's almost Friday, and so far the early CBS game is Oakland/Green Bay instead of Tennessee/San Diego. Why would they not show Tennessee - especially when they don't have to choose against the Texans for a change. Anyone know what's up with that? Last I heard they still get really high ratings for Titans games. Weird.

    I tripped out on that last night as well. I bet you he is getting even more e-mails this week.

    They've probably got their own file on me. I feel like Ray Liotta in Goodfellas, I'd swear that helicopter is following me. :spy:
