    I need some. If there are any season ticket holders that can't make it please keep me in mind. I am looking for at least 2 and a blue parking pass. I will paypal the money to you as long as you are well known here on the boards.

    If you just have a blue parking pass and no tickets I would be happy. At least I would be at the stadium.

    FYI - You need a tailgate pass to stay in the parking lots during the game if you do not have a game ticket. This is in addition to the parking pass.

    Probably not if I'm with the Double Duece in Blue. But just in case where do you get them and how much does it cost?

    New rules since the cowboys game fiasco. Only season ticket holders can buy them, so you'll have to get them from them, or on the open market.

    I was at the Atlanta game and heard all about it. I'm assuming if I with a group that has one I'm ok. Double Duece are there at every home game and half of them don't go in to the game.

    What happened t get enforced and what the rules are are two different things.

    The rule is to be in the parking lot on game day you MUST have a game ticket or tailgating ticket (each person).

    I have not heard if they will be selling tailgating tickets for the playoffs or not.

    Not telling you what to do, just be prepared to leave if they chose to enforce the rules during the game if you don't have a ticket.

    Parking pass =/= tailgate ticket.

    What he said; I haven't seen it enforced at all this season, but who knows for the playoffs.

    I've heard of it being enforced in some instances, but I'm inside, soooo, not an expert :)

    They enforce it. They swing by and ask to see tickets. Usually not a big deal for our group since we have tailgating tix for every game.

    I guess you can ride in with someone. However I know they don't let you walk on the lots without a ticket. I had that issue earlier this season when a board member here had my ticket and he was already tailgating with the Blue Crew and I was on the other side of the Astrodome trying to walk in. I had to borrow my buddy's ticket walk ALL the way to the Platinum lot from the Astrodome in the rain, get my ticket and then walk all the way to pick up my buddy. Yes that sucked.

    Screw it. I'll just save my money and stay home. Throw a playoff party here. If McNair wants to make it so difficult for Texans fans then I'll just watch it on tv. I'm sure not paying $300 a ticket to go to the playoff game. Then Buy a parking pass. Pay for a hotel and food. What sucks is I have supported Houston football since the 60's. Been to a lot of Oiler games and Texan games. It is harder and more expensive now living in Corpus Christi but I still do it.


    Its not like offers were pouring in. I think most season ticket holders that can't go to the game are going to sell for big profit. I can't really blame em after pumping so much money out for a losing product for so long.

    Parking lot passes are on sell for season ticket holders now. They are $10.

    Bckey!! Check with Double Deuce and see if they can get you one, since you tailgate with them. Shouldn't be that hard. If not, PM me and I'll get you one. I have a feeling there will be lots of fans hanging around on the parking lot for the playoff game. It'll be fun just being a part of the excitement. Tickets to the game are gonna be expensive and hard to find, so watching on TV with a bunch of diehards is next best thing. LET ME KNOW! I'll see to it you get a tailgating pass.

    First off Bucky Bob did not do anything but try to protect his investment. It was Cowboy fan and Texan Fan that caused All the security issues, and from what I heard it was mainly Texan Fan that caused the problems fighting with Cowboy Fans. Several Texan fans lost thier tickets game and parking for the incident. Anyone remember the big bus that sat at the entrance blairing the music and harrassing oposing fans, Not ther any more.

    Joe, when I came out of the Cowboy game and walked past that bus it was surrounded with Cowboy fans. They were EVERYWHERE, and NOT being nice! I was actually afraid. I left the game a little early because I did not feel safe inside the stadium. I just wanted to get back to the tailgate and lock myself in my car if I had to. YES, it was both sets of fans that were acting like id*Ots, BUT, it was mostly Cowboy fans on that parking lot. I can tell you for sure!! I have NO desire to EVER go to another Texan/Cowboy game! I love my TEXANS, but, I love my life more!!
