    Just curious here, being that the Texans are having a sub-par year and the Cowboys contending in the NFC, where does everybody's allegiances lie? I myself have been an avid Houston pro football fan since birth, swearing off anything associated with the Cowboys. How about you guys/gals?

    growing up my dad was and still is a cowboys fan as well as my step dad so when they are not playing the texans I usually will pull for them. usually...

    I am however a complete houston fan regardless of the sport no matter how good or bad they are in a particular season.

    Did not like Dallas when they were 1-15, did not like them when they won 3 Super Bowls in 4 years and don't like them now.

    Loved Dallas when they were 1-15, loved Dallas when they won 3 Super Bowls in 4 years and STILL love Dallas now.

    Love my Texans 1-15 or 15-1 :texflag:

    I was a Cowboy fan as a kid until the Tyler Rose came to Houston, then became an Oiler fan, still liked the Cowboys until they fired Landry, since then I could care less about the Cowboys..Texan fan all the way and I root for the Saints in the NFC

    I lived in Dallas for most of my adult life...had season tickets to the Cowboys going way back to Staubach all the way to Aikman so I've been a longtime Cowboys fan.

    I've never lived in Houston but liked the Oilers and now I like the Texans as well. I'm not a troll not a bandwagon fan (whatever that is...every person has a different definition for that term it seems).

    I doubt I'll ever spend another cent on pro football live..too rich for my blood....but it's my favorite sport.

    I quit watching pro-football when the Oilers left ( pro-football in the same sentence with the Oilers?) . :penalty:

    I began watching again when the Texans arrived. (Texans and pro-football in the same...ah...I digress)

    So I guess the answer to the question is..... I would not watch Dallas if they were the only team left. :tv:

    :hmmm: In that scenario, who would they play?

    However I must admit to checking the scores and rejoicing at each dallas defeat.

    I would rather eat glass than root for the cowpies.

    Both

    I've been a Cowboys fan since the beginning. I still remember the Ice Bowl as though it were yesterday. I remember the life and times of Dandy Don, Craig Morton, ROGER STAUBACH, TROY AIKMAN, the bad decisions of a talent named Dwayne Thomas, the firing of our beloved Tom Landry, Jimmy Johnson's season's, Barry Switzer's championship, the maturity of Michael Irving, etc. Oh, how I love my Cowboys--through sunshine and storms.

    I also really liked the Oilers, the Luv U Blue days, Billy Whiteshoes, George Blanda, Earl Campbell, Dan Pastorini, Kenny Stabler, Warren Moon, Buddy Ryan, Bum Phillips.

    When a new franchise was merely a dream for Houston, I was optimistic and believed that the team would be here sooner rather than later. Voted for the stadium initiative, and welcomed the new team with much love. I enjoy my PSL and the games I can attend on most Sunday's as well as the wonderful people I have met to help root for the fabulous Texans.

    I look forward to a bright future for the Texans and hopefully Superbowls are in the near future for both of my teams.

    can't get fire up with the cowboys, will always prefer the texans, i bet every week on nfl games, take the cowboys opponent every game and i take the texans every game. Has not been a real good year, but the texans finally beat the line the past two games.

    Ha! Don't worry about it. People have so many definitions for the term "bandwagon" that I've quit trying to figure out what they mean. I like the teams I like and that's just the way it is. To each his own.

    I've been a Cowboy and an Oilers fan since I was a little kid. I still support the Cowboys much like I support the Texans - maybe not as much as I support the Texans, but still got love for the Cowboys.

    I'm hoping to see both teams in a Superbowl against each other for a TX showdown, some day.

    What does that have to do with allegiances?

    I'me not saying everybody, but some fans, when the going gets rough, tend to jump on board the winning teams bandwagon. I've caught hell just about every monday from cowboy fans where I work, but I'me sticking with the Texans!
