    I agree...it's not like you'll be going to enjoy a good game anyway.

    yes the tickets are bought, but it would still send a message to the texans that if they don't shape up that this fan base will not support them.

    I've got tickets for the last two games and have already decided that I'm not going to either. As a matter of fact I'm not going to another Texans game while David Carr is the starting QB.

    No fans in stands = sending message to Texans that we don't give a crap until changes are made.

    Our tickets are supposedly 'sold' but after this game, I wont believe it until the proverbial brass is in pocket.

    Maybe Carr will pull a Sandy Koufax and sit out the game....that would be a real Christmas miracle for all of us

    everyone needs to forget about the texans and watch the domination of Yao on Channel 51...the rockets are up by 10, and Yao is playing out of his mind.

    I suggested to my co-season ticket holder that we show up, place "on strike" signs on our seats, and leave.

    That idea was not well received.

    Bob McNair passes within 10 feet of me before every home game. Most of my comments to him over the years have been supportive and cordial. He's returned pleasantries many times. Sunday, he's going to hear me say two things: 1) "why should I renew my season tickets next year?" and 2) "it's time to cut your losses at QB like you did with Gary Walker, Todd Wade, and Robaire Smith"

    Since the Texans haven't shown up the majority of the season,I'm not showing up the last 2 games either. So this time it's mutual!:gun:

    I think they already no that. The Texans aren't screwing up on purpose. It's not like they're trying to send a message to us. Bob McNair, Kubiak, the players, etc...they all want to win just as much as we, the fans, want them too.

    Agreed. That is exactly why I will be at the game. Because unlike the organization that claims tradition by announcing players before games and then stopping it, I will continue to attend every game. However, I will be there to make sure I voice my displeasure to all parties involved on the field.

    ... and miss BVP start? Are you crazy? I'm there.

    On the other hand, I'll be filling up during the tailgate, so Aramark will be going down the tubes w/o my support.

    I'd rather go to a bad NFL game than any other sport, especially the NBA.

    I would go and hold a sign up stating how you feel.

    So what should you put on the sign?

    Rather than boycotting the entire game, I would recommend a walkout with 8 minutes left in the game.

    Orioles fans did it to show displeasure with their front office and so did Lions fans.

    If you don't care anymore, you just won't go to the game anyway. If you do care, then walk out. It'd be a good way of showing support for the guys on the field while sending a message to the front office.

    Boycotting hurts the fans more than the owner. The owner still gets the money, but there are thousands of empty seats that less fortunate people would want.
