    Shame on you people who sold your tickets yesterday for a few extra bucks to cowboy fan.
    I was sickened by the number of cowboy fans in MY HOME TEAM's STADIUM!
    I hope those of you who did it, and believe me a whole bunch of you did, don't ever renew your seats again. WE DON"T NEED HALF way fans!
    Don't let the door hit you as you walk up I-45 north.
    SICKENING!

    How do you know that they didn't just buy the tickets from a box office ?

    Or maybe there are a lot of Texans fans who's number 1 team is Dallas? I wouldn't be surprised given how many people I know in Houston who relocated here from other parts of Texas. For some of my friends, Dallas is their #1 team (NFC) and the Texans are #2 (AFC). It's not the case for everyone, but I'm sure that would explain a good amount given the lack of accomplishments on the Texan's part.

    I would have been pissed if I had tickets to go to the game and I had turned down thousands of dollars to see that kind of effort.

    Texans fans will be what we all want them to be when the Texans hold up their end of the bargain.

    Anyone who doubts the quality of our city's appreciate for football needs to look at the Colts game. When the team comes out hungry, so do the fans

    I'm a little confused. Are you saying Texans fans knew there would be a subpar effort and didn't come or they changed their loyalty once they got there and the team started stinking up the place?

    I love Houston, but anyone who's honest with themselves knows its a bit of a fair weather sports town. I'm guessing Dallas fans had no problem getting tickets. I have been pricing them for the SD game and there are tons available at nearly face value. It is what it is.

    Get used to it. As long as the Cowboys are relevant, and the Texans are not, you are going to see alot of Cowboy fans in our stadium.

    I bet Bears fans fill up Ford Field when those 2 teams go at it.

    What I find funny are these pathetic so called fans that think they can tell so many other fans how to root for their team and what they can and cannot do. Sorry, but anyone who has ever been to Reliant Stadium and seen the dedication from Houston fans, and then turns around and criticizes us are freaking clueless. Hell, we've put up with all of these horrible Capers seasons and mediocre Kubiak failures over the last few years, and yet the fans are still selling out stadiums and have a great atmosphere at Reliant stadium and tailgating. Texans fans have been through all types of problems in the 8 years that this organization has been around, and people are still rooting as hard as they can, and just because a bunch of Dallas fans show up to a game when they're a few hours away and one of the most popular teams in the sport, and here we've got random posters coming in here and blasting away at other fans who support the team.

    And what's even more stupid as hell about this is that if we would have won, no one would have even cared about how many Dallas fans were there. SInce we lost, these guys want something to to whine about.

    I take full responsibility.

    YUP!! I didn't bring my "A" game as a fan. I had a reunion Saturday night and didn't home until 5:30 in the morning. That said I missed my ride and had to take a cab to the game. My lot opens at 7:00a.m. and I didn't get there until around 9:00.

    This is on me!!

    Mods, please change the title of this thread to "Shame on Bill".

    :facepalm: Bill!

    Not true, for me at least.

    What the crowd told me was that a lot of Texans fans sold their tickets and chose a few hundred bucks over supporting their team.

    I get broker seats and Dallas fans who otherwise support the Texans. But the shear number of Dallas fans stated that a lot of Texans fans took the money.

    Why bring this kind of rant here? You are not going to reach the people you want to reach, and only succeed in insulting and pissing of die hard fans.

    First, the players and coaches treated this game exactly like any other, or even less than any other, kills some of the mood. Whats the point in building a Texas rivalry if no one cares enough to even aknowledge it?

    Second, I think the Texans fans would have seemed much greater in number if our team had been winning. You always notice the loudest fans. It seemed like there were a lot of Cowboys fans there watching the broadcast because they had a lot to cheer for. If we had come out guns blazing, Im sure the Texans fans would have been on their feet making the Cowboys fans who were there seem tiny in number.

    Cowboys Texans tickets were going for 5x or more face value. People were selling hundred dollar seats for a thousand bucks.

    This is not a fair weather city, and I hate having to continually defend that. We are a proud city, and we dont' like to cheer for garbage. Who can fault fans who don't want to buy in to a team that has spent 8 seasons building up to a 9-7 record.

    The price of the Cowboys tickets is the perfect indication that this city wants desperately a team to cheer for. They want to love football. Its a 2 way street. The stadium has been sold out every single game.

    I never have understood these damn threads on this message board. I think most, if not all the members here are diehard Texans fans. I think we all go (or want to really badly) when we have the tickets to go.

    Call the local news and ***** about it, not here.

    *Breaks out "The Promise Speech"*

    "I promise you one thing. A lot of good will come out of this. You will never see any fan in the entire country cheer as hard as I will cheer the rest of the season. You will never see someone push the rest of the team as hard as I will push everybody the rest of the season. You will never see a team play harder than we will the rest of the season.

    God Bless!"

    You should get a 4 game suspension TB. You not only let the fans down by your total lack of dedication, but you let yourself down as well.. But thank you for the coming out and admitting you made a mistake, and in time this too shall pass..
