    Weird.

    Both the Texans and the Titans are on FOX this week.

    I think one or the other will end up being shown. I'm guessing the Austin people aren't going to fight as hard for this game as they did for SF/HOU, but maybe not?

    Can I interest any Austinites in another Texans email campaign? It worked last time, but as bad as this team is playing right now, it's going to probably take a lot more - especially since Drew Brees is from Austin.

    I would help but I am in SA now. Good luck though.

    Its funny, I got sunday ticket when I moved here 5 months ago thinking that the Texans would not be shown every week, but to my surprise they are on every single Sunday on local CBS. All those years of living in Austin and not seeing the Texans have scared me.

    I guess I paid alot of money for the Red Zone Channel. lol.

    Undefeated Saints or an irrelevant Texans team that even the diehards aren't even really looking forward to watching play this week. Seems like an easy decision for Fox this week.

    As it is every season this starts happening this time of year, the Texans are the ones to blame, not the networks in Austin.

    Nobody's blaming anyone. I'm just saying - if you still want to watch your team play and you don't have DirecTV, you need to fire off an email.

    Don't the cowboys play at that time. I think Fox has stated they weren't going to play this game from the get go.

    You must have the Ticket? I should have gotten it, maybe I will get it again one of these years. Can't convince the wife to own season tix/psl's and the ticket. I am really considering selling my psl's and just buying individual games when I want to go.

    We do, but I am getting rid of it next year. Fishing will be defining my 40's. I am keeping my PSLs and will be still going to home games, while easing back on my paid Football content for the 17 week season.

    I've sent emails to SA, CC, and the Rio Grande Valley in support of my fellow Texans. As have other Austinites.

    ==================

    Anyway, I'm in of course. Though the Texans have taken the starch out of it.

    Are there any Texans fans getting together in Austin as opposed to Round Rock? I live in Dripping so really far for me to drive to watch them at this point.

    I know everyone is bailing on 3rd base. Anywhere else closer to Austin a good group of Texans fans are meeting?

    This would have been the perfect time for me to go to a get-together, but we have company this weekend. Dammit. If we lose another TV game and I don't have plans already, I'll for sure go to one.

    Yup, I'll be there with my son and my buddy the Broco fan. I'll save you two seats.

    I'd rather watch the Saints than Texans game to be honest. The Texans made this hole for themselves. No harm done by the Austin media. I'd make the same change.
