    I checked out KEYE's website and it says TBA. Anyone know if we will get to see the game on regular TV?

    The titans/jets game is at noon also, hope they don't decide to go with that.

    When are the maps updated?
    Usually Wednesday night or Thursday afternoon for that weekend's games. Updates and corrections on Friday if needed.

    I'm going to be very surprised if the Texans are shown in Austin or San Antonio anymore this year.

    I'll be shocked if the Texans are on this week, but we won't know for a couple of days.

    For every Texans game that hasn't been on KEYE, I've gotten a pre-emptive email letting me know from the program director before it ever comes out on the map... and I haven't gotten that email yet. I usually get it on Mondays, though... so I'll post it here either way.

    UPDATE - yep, KEYE's showing Titans/Jets as expected. I just got the email.

    Well, my wife and I will watch her Niners try and hang with the Cowboys. The Texans just don't give me any rocks to throw at KEYE.

    He sent me the ratings for yesterdays games - and they're ASTOUNDING.

    The Titans game at 3PM - you know, the Titans WITHOUT Vince Young - more than DOUBLED the ratings for the Texans game at noon. That is amazing.

    Also - the game that ran at noon on Fox - Bears/Packers - rated higher than the Texans on KEYE.

    Wow. Why would KEYE ever show another Texans game?

    EDIT: I forgot to mention an important thing here: of course, the Titans game was unopposed in the Austin market, whereas the Texans game was up against a game on Fox... but still - it was MORE than double the ratings, plus the Texans/Colts game didn't even beat out the Packers/Bears head to head.

    I disagree that ratings are a crock. They're not perfect by any means - but they're not a crock.

    Indeed.

    What we can agree, is that if the Texans would freaking win some games - we wouldn't even have to have threads like this. Sigh.

    Guess, I will be at Pluckers....too bad the girls play at noon, probably will not get to hear the game. Even though the girl fans can stay at home and watch it.

    No kidding. It really chaps me they show the Titans no matter what and I used to give 'em Hell about it, but now I can't in good conscience
    blame them for showing whoever they see fit. I can hate that they do it, but I won't give them any grief for it while we are playing like this.

    We on this board have fought for the Texans cause in Austin (S.A. too) much harder than the Texans themselves. Both the Front Office and now the product they have on the field have undermined any efforts by the fans to date.

    I can't even be mad at KEYE honestly, and I usually am. But its getting to a point where I don't even feel like watching the games - maybe not even enough for me to go to a bar to watch the game.

    Like the rest of you who have also voiced out to help the Texans in this market, it is kind of hard to fight for something that doesn't fight for itself.

    A couple of reasons I will watch this game:

    1. I have the Ticket( so I can, but most likely will be flipping channels)

    2. Because my friend is a big mouthed Browns fan and is talking trash already
