    Your team is not playing so don't wear your Cowgirls apparel to a Texans game. This especially goes to the douche who wears the huge foam Cowgirls hat that I have seen the past 2 games around the 516 section.

    I get it, we have fans in Houston who like the Cowgirls, but don't wear gear to a game they aren't even playing in. When I went to the Broncos game a few weeks ago I purposely did not wear any Texans gear because it made no sense at all. I saw a guy with a PManning jersey and some Buffalo Bills fans at that game as well, and they got more crap than the Patriots fans who were there watching their actual team play.

    I get it, you can wear whatever the hell you want to wear, but when you come into our house wearing a giant foam Cowgirls hat a line has to be drawn, especially when you are playing AT HOME vs the Falcons. Head up I-45 to Jerryland spend your life savings, enjoy sub-par tailgating, and wear Cowgirls gear from head-to-toe.

    I understand you want to enjoy the best tailgating in the NFL and enjoy reasonably priced seats and concessions, but please for heaven's sake leave your Cowgirls crap at home, or in the car until the game is over.

    It is classless, distasteful, and stupid. No matter what NFL game I go to, unless the Texans are playing I won't wear any Texans gear to the game.

    Off my soapbox! :wild:

    JoeTexan threw a flag on a Cowboy fan on his way into the stadium.

    Eh. Wear your colors. Nothing wrong with doing that. I'll always wear my Texans jersey no matter what stadium and no matter who's playing. It's all about going to a football game and having a blast.

    The foam hat might have been a bit much but take one gander over at the bullpen and one shouldn't complain. I'm not saying it's a bad thing out there in the bullpen. I actually love it and am devising an elaborate getup of my own but the point remains... Wear your colors with pride is what I say. I get a lot of heat wearing my Texans garb in Austin.

    I completely agree with you JW. It makes no sense to me, and it's something I would not do, simply a personal feeling. I just think it's classless. The only time I've ever done that is when the SB was played here. I wanted both the Pats and Panthers fans to know we as Texans were their host, and I was respectful to both teams fans, although the Pats fans sure tried my patience.

    Yesterday at the game when I saw said gear, I happily got the loser' attention and told them, either Cowboys suck or your team sucks. And just laughed at them as I walked away. Your right Comboy gear has no place at Reliant stadium unless the Cowboys are there.

    I noticed it too...I really dislike seeing these like that. I want to ask them where are they?? I saw one lady at the St. Arnolds tailgate with a pink Cowboys jersey. I just stared and shook my head.

    When I go to Titans game during the holidays when I am home, I just wear regular clothes...I won't wear Texans attire...because they are not playing...I try to be respectful when I am in another team's stadium as a visitor.

    I can almost understand Cowboy fan in Houston. They won some Super Bowls way back when. But the ones that I really cannot fathom is Titans fan. They wear Titans gear to a game in Houston not featuring the Titans. (or they live here and still like the Titans) Once Houston got the 32nd team, it was time to cut your cord from Bud Adams. The stooge stole football from Houston! He never lost money here! Get over it and join the Texans fans.

    I think it's more of them wearing Vince Young jerseys than Titans jerseys. Vince IS from Houston and has a large following as a result of that.

    I could be wrong but it's just what I think.

    No matter what jersey one wears, we all go to the games to watch some NFL football just the same.

    Another thing that kind of rubbed me the wrong way was after the game a group of people in the Yellow Lot decided to blare the old Houston Oilers song. You know "We're the Houston Oilers, the Houston Oilers, Houston Oilers #1."

    Uhhhhh.....WTF?

    Outside of the large foam hat and this incident it was an AWESOME day! If only we had weather like that every Sunday!

    I think it was more of WHAT he was wearing more than WHO he was supporting, but either way it ain't right IMO.

    I saw another fan with a Texans shirt on but a Cowboys hat and I can live with that, but not decked out in full costume.

    I am just glad the weather waited until today to get nasty...That would have been a not-so-great tailgate...

    Great phone call to 610 this morning, Joe Texan! Nice to hear you prop both the Bull Pen and Gridiron, Tx., and I got a chuckle out of you calling them out with the Barry Manilow concert blast. :howdy:

    I think many would be surprised at the number of Cowboys fans that hold PSLs for the Texans, so there is a vested interest there while still supporting their own. I can guarantee that the animosity is one-sided. It would be most surprising to see a Texan fan in Cowboys stadium, but any attention drawn would be more out of curiousity than anger.
