If there were a "Worst Team Spirit City" Award, Houston would win it hands down! In all sports categories but especially football (maybe that’s why the Oilers left Houston). I am ashamed at how this city lacks support for its teams when they are not winning. I have lived in Houston for 28 years and consider myself a Houstonian and die hard Texans fan. I support Astros, Rockets, Comets, Texans, etc. But since this is about football, I will get to it. I have had season tickets (4 PSL) for 3 years now and visit the Texans Message board frequently, but don’t post very often. I am deeply ashamed at what I continuously read on our message board, especially about David Carr. (No David Carr posts needed…we have all read them…negative and positive…we are all quite clear on this). I have visited other NFL boards and the biggest difference from their boards and ours is the noticeable lack of negative/bashing postings from their fans about their team and QB compared to our boards and team (regardless of their performance). This is about Team Spirit. In my observation, I have concluded that most Houston sport fans are “band wagon riders”. They support our teams when they are hot, but trash them when they are not. The things I have read on this message board are reminiscent of old high school slam books. I hope that our athletes don’t read the boards because it is a HUGE embarrassment. We live in a free speech society and even visiting teams fans can post on our boards, but the worst postings seem to come from within our own fan base. That's "Just Wrong". Even other team fans have commented on how we don’t support our own team. It was the same way about the Oilers (albeit without message boards). All the smack that I have seen, read, and heard about David Carr from “supposed fans” just breaks my heart…..mostly because I know that this is a team sport and it is not all his fault, but it breaks my heart even more to know that everyone else reads and sees the lack of support for this team, David Carr, and our other athletes in general. Most of the posters have the mentality of a “slam book” poster. The thread about “value of our Carr” was so juvenile and a huge embarrassment to this team, city, and True Fans. Houston athletes never get the national recognition and awards that they so deserve, in any sport….maybe if there was more city support from fans, it would catch on nationally as well. How can the rest of the country support our athletes when we don’t! I know this post was long, but I don’t regret posting it because I feel that it needs to be said. Let’s ALL support our Texans team and David Carr on Sunday against the TITANS and vy, and in all other games. It’s time to check the negative attitude at the door and support our Texans team, DAVID CARR and all! Go Texans and David Carr…..beat the Titans and I stand beside you all the way.
