    That had to be one of the worst games I ever saw. Buchanon tried to tackle like a little girl. Carr running as soon as he get's the ball. No deep passes except from Pitt. No wonder everyone was boo'ng them. The game performance was pathetic. I said all last year, leave the defence and address the offence. Where in the world is this amazing first round draft stud on defence that we got in the first round that we passed on other good players to get?

    I can see the future.
    New head coach or 2 season tickets and a parking pass going on sell. It was hot as heck in there and I was in the shade all day. Poor people paying to sit in the sun and see that massacre.

    i had tickets (season tix) but decided not to go because i wont leave a game that isnt over and i hate sitting through my team getting abused. if i were there though i'd boo too with the first drive on offense being run, run, pass/turnover ... and getting worse after that (how is that even possible???). since i was wise enough to stay home, i just laughed & grabbed a beer.

    Until this year I have never left a game early. But now I havent stayed to watch a whole one yet. And to sit in that hot, hot arena was a killer. I felt so sorry for the ones in the sun. Luckily, my tickets are in the south end zone sitting in the hot shade... The person who said to leave the roof open should be fired...

    I don't know if this is true or not but I heard (I think on 610) that it is Caper's decision on the roof....that really doesn't sound right to me because I don't see why they'd put that on his shoulders. I would think it'd be the owner's decision but I don't know.

    No matter. It sounds like many people were sick from the heat and in retrospect it was a mistake.

    My season tix are in the north end zone and I was miserable. I stayed into the 4th Q when I just had to leave. I couldn't bear the heat any longer with the product on the field. I know we're supposed to be great fans and all, but there comes a point when you have to consider return on investment. Season ticket holders are not getting much at the moment, and that open roof yesterday was just insult added to injury.

    The stands looked deserted in some places watching on TV. Now I know it's because people were so hot and leaving for a cooler spot or leaving for good. Must have been miserable.

    I was in the shady end zone so I had a good shot of the other side, and it was clearing out fast. I really can't blame them, the heat was pretty unbearable out in the sun. It also didn't help that the team wasn't really worth watching anyway.

    I watched on TV, and the stands were EMPTY.

    I had never seen it that way, and I've watched every Texans game on either my local channel or Sunday ticket...so I've seen a bunch of Texans games to be able to see it and say, "Man, that's a weird sight to see...."

    You can't tell me that Bob McNair saw those empty seats and didn't get all hot and bothered. I'm surprised he didn't fire somebody at half-time.

    I have Tix in the North endzone and traded them early this year for additional Indy Tix. Glad I did, the thermometer read about 120!!! That's just rediculous. Not worth driving up from Brownsville for that!

    I stayed the whole game and watched in disbelief. Whoever is responsible for the parking lot deserves an F as well. Did not allow anyone in the Blue lot off of Fannin and the lack of port a potties was awful. An absolute horrible experience to match the failing product. It must get better and it has to start from the top. McNair will soon be seeing his big revenue shrink if he does start taking action.

    Give me a fire Casserly thread and I will pour gasoline on it.

    I'm with ya'. My working buddy and I stayed into the 4th Qtr. We were so miserable we stayed in the concourse for about 10-15 to cool off before walking to the truck. Didn't even feel like drinking, just water. was so hot in the Red lot after the game too. I have never seen so many empty seats in the North end zone, even the bull pen was empty. No one there to yell.

    There was plenty of room in the north end zone for Texans management to cozy up and watch the game from the fans' perspective. A little direct sunlight for hours never hurt any white collar executive, right?

    Seriously, I baked in that sun until about 10 mins left in the game and I just had to leave. I maintain that a lot of the fans whine about needless stuff, but there was just no way to sit in the direct sun for that long with no breeze, no Gatorade, and no product on the field worth watching. Even if they had been winning, I would have had to get up and move to the concourse at that point. I'm still in the pain phase of the sunburn.

    It was so hot that I started to hallucinate. At one point I thought I saw Buchanon break up a pass.

    If we had a home game this weekend, we could leave the roof open for some serious home field advantage.

    As a Bengal fan I understand and empathize with you frustration. I don't know how many games I've froze my rear end off watching bad football. Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before those in charge start making the right decisions....Keep your faith.....

    I think if Reliant was a true outdoor stadium, you wouldn't hear many fans complaining about the heat. With its roof open, it is not a true outdoor stadium.

    As far as the diehards from the north, how many of them do you see sitting around wearing t-shirts and shorts when the temperatures drop? When it gets cold, you can always add more clothing. When it gets hot, is running around nekkid allowed?

    Man up guys and quit complaining about the weather. We live in Houston it's hot all the time. Nothing a few budlights can't take care of. You need to be complaining about our pee wee football team the Texans and there pretty boy "leader" David Carr. Not to mention our football coach who doesn't seem to get upset ever. He looked like an ***** last game with his jaw dropped. :tomato:
