    I never thought this season would go like this. My question is if NFL owners decided to lock out for a season, would you be "ready for some football" a year later or be an ex-Texans fan? Most are pretty angry at McNair and I wonder if a missed season would be the straw that broke the camels back?

    Here's my questions:

    1. do we have to pay season tickets up front?
    2. If no football - do we get a refund and when?

    See, I hear that every year, but then, seems like almost everyone does because no one wants to lose their seats.

    Of course I'll be a fan...I'll be a bigger fan if they actually make some changes to be competitive when the lockout ends though.

    If you are a fan now, you will likely be a fan if a lock out were to occur.

    You'd curse the NFL for not getting a deal done, but you'd be itching to see pro football when it finally came back.

    I think I'll become a Manchester United fan or something.

    I have wondered about this as well. Would not be surprised if they still sought the $'s and gave you the option for a refund at a later date (i.e. after it was clear that no strike-shortened season would take place) or asked to keep the balance toward the following season....

    Heard one of those call into the radio the other day. He was like it doesn't matter if the Texans win or not. He goes to the games because it is good entertainment. As long as it is not a blow out loss and the Texans have a "chance" to win he's good.

    I wonder how many season ticket holders are like that. What a :clown:

    I'll always be a Texans fan as long as "Houston" is their hometown. That's the nature of an NFL addiction.

    However, if they keep Kubiak as a HC in 2011, I won't be sporting any of their gear. I'll watch the games and root, but my own personal protest of accepting mediocrity will be to cease advertising the mediocre product.

    You do not have to care for the owner to support your favorite team from your own home which is what I'd do.

    lol!

    This very issue has caused a rift between a good friend and myself. We're both season ticket holders, and he is Mr. Sunshine And Light, ALL the time. Being optimistic is one thing, but he's one of those people where it gets annoying. I'm not allowed to say anything remotely negative about the Texans, because if I do, here come Mr. Apologist to rationalize it away.

    I'm not going to end a friendship over sports, obviouisly, but it's annoying as shit and has caused a fair share of tension.

    As I told him, I will never, ever, ever apologize for having high standards and thinking like a winner. EVER.

    Oh, and to answer the original question: Sure, I'll still love the Texans. But season tickets? Doubtful.

    LOL! As I just posted, I have a friend that is somewhat like that. It's caused it's share of issues, becuase I like to WIN.

    The game day experience at Reliant is a blast. But, it's not the be all and end all.

    Texan fan till the day I die. Sure a lockout would suck, but it wouldn't stop me from being a Texans fan. :texflag:

    I'm basically in this same mind-frame. The team will always be my team, but I will have my own personal protests against them if I really don't like the way things are being run. This is like my hockey team right now, the GM has been given more then a fair shake, he obviously sucks at his job but he remains in place. I don't plan on going to any games or buying any more gear until a move is made. This was not a rash decision, but rather one that has been made over the last few years.

    It is not as much about the wins and losses as it is about how things are being run. I can put up with terrible seasons as long as I feel the team is working towards getting better.

    I'm in for the long haul. If I could have changed, I would have already.
