    1.) You do not need to have a Paypal account to donate through Paypal. There is an area that says ...
    Don't have a PayPal account?
    Use your credit card or bank account (where available). Continue

    Just click continue and you can proceed.

    2.) If you are uncomfortable with submitting a credit card online you can send a check. To do so send it to ...
    Texans Talk (also make the check out to Texans Talk)
    7805 Elkhorn Mountain Trail
    Austin, Texas 78729

    3.) If you are not planning to donate please do not click the green "Donate" link, click an amount and submit just out of curiosity. This creates an unconfirmed donation.

    4.) For now the donation goal is set to $150 a month. Our actual expense is $300 per month. However I have allowed another NFL team to host their board on our server. I am hoping between both of us we can reach the $300 per month to cover this thing.

    New 9/22/2011 Many of you have asked me if there is a way to make automatic monthly donations like a subscription. We have that set up now for any that wish to contribute in this way. In the navigation bar in the header you will now see a link called "Automatic Monthly Contribution". Click that and subscribe. This is through Paypal and you can login to your Paypal account at any time and stop the autopay if you wish to stop.

    As always we always appreciate the donations and your support!

    it chills my heart to know I've donated to the TOMB, when they spew so much hatred at the Texans.

    All in all though, gracious gesture Hook Em.

    My compliments to Kevin. Let's keep up with our part too as we should never be outdone. Hey where else do you get to talk with me for only $5?

    I can get you for 2.99, but only for a minute.

    If I had known the other team was the titans, perhaps I wouldn't have pulled the trigger on a donation. JK...kinda

    Take the good with the bad, I guess. If I have to subsidize the TOMB to keep this board up.... well, I'll keep on sending my $5 per month.

    And don't try to call me collect either! You are just too funny! Have you recovered from Ike? I was told the construction crews were to start re-model soon of my building and one behind
    it. Still looks like Lebanon.

    So in other words, the Texans were cool in giving us the official MB board history to here so we could continue it and replace the aging MB that was the old TT.com.

    And the Titans created some lame face book page, and the only way their official board could save itself was to ask for help of a cool Texan fan.

    Dogs and cats living together indeed!

    Seems to me that this is yet another illustration of how little concern Bud Adams and his organization has to its most dedicated fans. They can only hope that this is the worst of it. I've never really hated Titan fans--usually I just feel sorry for them because Bud is their owner. Man cares little about the fans other than lining his own pocketbooks.

    Contributors are cool. :texflag:

    It figures. They had to have our help to get a team in the first place. Now they need our help to talk about it.

    It was the NFL, not Bud Adams. Thanks Kevin, you and I are living proof that diehard fans from different teams can be friends and get along just fine.

    I felt like I needed to take a shower after reading that (kinda like that scene at the end of Texan_Bil's favorite movie - the Crying Game)

    Take it from me; this was a great offer from Kevin and as one of the originals that will hopefully turn the site into something as terrific as this place, I can only hope for the best and say thank you.

    We Titan fans aren't all bad. :photos:

    The official TOMB tailgate, not the actual board.

    Paul Kuharsky knew that but it's not as much fun, it made a better story and I love it. It's helped old friends find us and Kevin got some great publicity along the way, too :cool:

    Before I forget and as it should be, we're subsidizing your site. We're cool with that too!

    Wow. Titans fans and Texans fans all working together for a common cause. Maybe this will end our contentious relationship and we'll all be able to sit around, enjoy a glass of chardonnay, and spend an evening talking about our feelings!


    ** if it works for us, and it works for y'all and I still have a board to screw around on while stuck at work, then so be it!

    I'm glad that Hook'em did this. Really glad. I love fans of other teams helping other teams' fans. I'm not a Titans fan but what does that have to do with people who are Titans fans? Not much, really. We all love NFL football just the same. Let's play some football is what it's all about for me. If we can spread what we have here, I'm HAPPY with that.

    I'm really proud of Hook'em. Props!

    What does subsidizing the site mean? I have absolutely no idea what it means.

    OK, so, I just clicked on that little green Donate link just to check it out, and found I can give directly on my credit card. Had I know that I wouldn't have used up a stamp to mail yall a check. LOL
