    Hey just wanted to ask my fellow Texan Fans to consider giving up the Jorts. They are really horrible.

    I'm not a fan of jersey's either but I understand that most NFL fans wear them over polo's or t-shirts.

    So before you flame me and say "fu texanskan I'll wear what I want to wear" just look in the mirror and ask yourself "Does this jersey really look good with my blue jean shorts?"

    This is what I like to do, I wear shorts (one's not made with denim) and a Texans t-shirt at tailgating then I put on polo or a dry t-shirt for the game. Trust me this look comes off a little better. When it's cold I put on full length blue jeans with a polo and a cowboy hat.

    Look keep the jerseys if that is what you like but please consider getting rid of the jorts they are really, really bad.

    Just my .02

    texanskan,

    it's possible you don't know that a majority of the posters on this board are a part of the Bull Pen, and as being a part of the Bull Pen, we have a particular "Costume" (if you will) that has been used since the very first game. I, myself, have a certain set outfit style that I wear to every game as a traditional outfit. Every ofther day of the week, I have to dress up with nice clothes because of business, but football time is a chance for a majority of us to dress up in our "original gameday attire" and have FUN. I know this was just a recommendation, and I do recognize this.

    I'm trying to be nice about this, but I know there will be more stink coming from other people regarding this post... but it is common sense (and common on this message board) that when someone comes out here and starts posting messages on what they think everyone else should do, that tends to bring upon a negative response... mainly for the fact a lot of people don't like being told how they should be doing things.

    Just a simple, non-argumentative response to your post is what I am providing here. If dressing like that is what you do on your gameday experience, then please, keep on going. I, however, will not change my attire for gameday for the simple fact that I've been doing this outfit since day one.


    Just a recommendation for those of you out there, don't post things like this here... all that's going to happen is you are going to stir-up a hornet's nest of bad mouthing... I know a lot of you don't like to be told what to wear, what to eat, how to comb your hair... so don't tell others how to do it. It makes things on this message board go so much smoother...

    I personally prefer shorts made of other materials besides denim because of comfort. However, what is with all the attacks on denim shorts lately? I heard some guys on the radio busting on "jorts". Is this some new thing where the "cool police" have secretly decided somewhere that denim shorts are uncool and now everyone has to abide by this?

    As a matter of fact those same guys on the radio where saying that men that wear football jerseys are "gay". If so I guess every NFL stadium in America is just one big gay pride rally on Sundays.

    Guys on the radio have also implied that a wedding proposal at Reliant is a sign of a lack of manhood.

    Then again, they're not proposing to the you-know-who's, are they?

    Not sure why people hard on jerseys.


    But jorts...

    LOL This is the funniest post I've seen on any message board in years. Jorts and jerseys rank highest on your "oh no they di'nt" list?

    Fashion offenses that concern me more than jorts and jerseys:

    1) Tank tops on men where the sleeves are cut so low that I can see their nipples from the side.
    2) Women that "shouldn't be wearing that".
    3) Looking at a certain man's cameltoe that dresses like a deceased musical icon.
    4) People criticizing the way other people dress when they admit to wearing a cowboy hat and finding that to be the pinnacle of fashion, when all that says to me is that they probably spend a lot more time surrounded by people in jorts than I ever will.

    You don't like jorts? Great! I don't care for them much either. But who are you to start telling people how to dress at a football game? Jesus, we are lucky that almost everyone is wearing a shirt and we don't have to be exposed to half-painted, sweaty, hairy belly juice every week.

    It's a fraking football game, not a fashion show. Now how about you go concern yourself with the correct placement of apostrophes and not on what everyone else is wearing.

    Bye!

    Try wearing my foot in your ass. I'm sure that would look good at your tailgate party. Don't worry, I'll let you bite down on your polo shirt to ease the pain.

    Did I type in lifetimetv.com by mistake? How the hell did this get in here?

    I have nothing to say except I can't help but laugh about "jorts." My friends and I use the term often. Funny stuff.

    I did not know jean shorts were out. Damn I guess I am still in 2005 when everyone wore them.

    Jean shorts are waaaay down the list of fashion uglies as far as I'm concerned. Let's first deal with a disturbing trend that has swept the great city of Austin, TX.

    Crocs. Crocs are a PLAGUE. They are the stupidest, ugliest thing that I've ever seen. In most cities, only children and women wear Crocs. But in Austin, you see full-grown men wearing those abominations. My most hated fashion thing used to be Capris... until Crocs showed up.

    I can't even go downtown much anymore, because if I do I know I'll end up seeing a man wearing man-capris, AND Crocs - and when that happens, I have to burn the city down.

    Wearing Football jerseys gay?? Whats really gay is dudes trying to critique another dudes outfit. What the hell is this post anyway "queer eye for the football guy"? I am hoping to make it to a game this year, if I do let me know where you tailgate. I am going to buy the most bad-a** pair of jorts that the salvation army has to offer, pair it with a beat up #8 jersey with a duct-tape Schaub nameplate - I will then make my way to your tailgate smack you in the mouth and steal your beer (then again for the refined polo shirt crowd, you might be sipping on a wine spritzer). Dallas could use another fan like you.

    Well I don't care at all about jersey's (so many NFL fans wear them) I even have two Texans jerseys (gifts) and I think they look good on women but the jorts are just plain bad and while it does not matter to me it is part of my "material" when I talk smack to other visiting fans so when so many Texan fans wear them it's hard to bring it on the smack talk.

    I have had the chance to meet many of ya'll on this board and everyone has been great but seriously wearing a gameday "costume" does not mean you have to wear jorts it makes us look bad.

    I'm a proud and native Texan but southeast Texas is not overalls and jort country or atleast I did not think it was.

    Just looking out for our image, take care.:texan:

    if you have ever been to a dallas game the jort wearing Texan fan would look like a yuppie considering most cowboy fans live in Okla, Ark, South Texas or Mexico
