I know I am not the only one who shares this view, because I hear the ridicules from others around me in Section 123 as well. The "Pep Band" is a true embarrassment to the entire organization and is not helping in our quest to become the first class NFL franchise we all want to become. The goofy behavior exhibited by those members are constantly being laughed at by both the opposing fans that are obviously making their first trip to Reliant and the hardcore season ticket holders that have supported this organization from year one. With this new objective for a tougher image, this "Pep Band" NEEDS to be removed. As a PSL holder from day one, I have emailed the Texans organization a couple times without much luck. I am replied with generic messages or that "they are family-fun". I'm all for making the environment fun for children and families, but if you've ever watched their behavior, you'd be shocked. Every Houston area high school would be embarrassed to have them on the sidelines on a Friday night. I urge ya'll to submit your thoughts on this subject and hopefully we can get something done. If the Texans are that adamant about how important the "band's" role is, why don't we move them to the home side and away from me and the other disgusted fans who get bi- weekly headaches each fall from them around Sec 123? While I'm on the subject about goofy traditions, how do ya'll feel about the "First Down Texans" chant after every first down? While I'm pumped about first downs, the need to yell it is woeful. Let's start getting excited about "TOUCHDOWN TEXANS" like every other football program in the country!! While these two things are minor, I feel they could help improve our image dramatically. Like I already said, I've been in the same seats from the beginning and have heard the same things from others around me.
