    Unfortunately, I don't think anyone on here does it. But if you're a Bullpen member, please stop flipping off kicks. It gives us a bad rep IMHO, and further, the Texans have sent this:

    If you would like to show your disgust at the other team's field goal or PAT, join us by turning around (and yes, we all cheat and watch it on the jumbo tron).

    I just checked my email I got it too. I guess it is to all Bullpen folks. I made a suggestion as well. I'm not sure if anyone has been to bullpen pub but they do have some decent beers there. One of the only places I've seen the big bottled shiner's. Only problem I'd had with it is I don't carry cash. I requested they put in a credit/debit card machine.

    LMAO, sadly, it's not. It's the same people every week. And when you tell them not to do it, they look at you like you're dumb.

    Sucks there are people out there who don't understand that not all things are good to do in public. I would rather the stadium be a place families can go to.

    Yep, got that wonderful note too....

    No more Profanity, huh? What the %$&*#$ am I supposed to yell at them to get their @!*& together then?

    I can't wait till they ask us all to sit down (if asked) next...

    No profanity at a football game? Wow... get real.. I try not to curse if there are kids around, but give me a break.

    In terms of the bird... I can understand that. No need for that at a FG or PAT. Anyone see the pictures from the Browns vs Bengals game after Johnson jumped into the crowd? There's like 5 or 6 fans in the Dawg pound flipping him off! It's awesome

    I didn't get one and I know they have my e-mail addy.

    Maybe they know I am too nice to do that.

    I fought this battle a couple years ago and lost. I really can't believe there are people out there that think it is a "cool" thing to do. At first I was mad, because I didn't want my children picking up bad habits but I finally have taught them that this is a classic example of why to stay in school.

    I hope the Texans really do something about it, for the younger kids sake.

    I understand the Texans take on it, but can you imagine if Al Davis sent that to the Black Hole or whomever runs the Eagles to send that to thier fans....Now I am sure they would get emails back with photo's of them flipping them off....

    Yea I agree with the bird thing! When I was Bullpen season ticket holder I thought it was childish and was surprised at who was doing it.
    Then one day I was at home watching and I could see it on tv, mainly cause they show the Bullpen alot and I thought man we look like white trash low life scum doing that! Not even the Black Hole or Dawg Pound stoops that low!

    Did not know you can see it on tv...wow. As for the people in Oakland and Philly, I should have stated that I do not know if they do that, but to be told that, I am sure those fans would send a nice return email...As much as I dislike the Eagles and thier fans, I have to admit, they are quite possibly the most passionate fans there are.
