Yep. By any metric, I've been a hardcore fan. Owned season tickets for a decade, have worn a Texans hard hat/custom jersey to every home game I've been to (well over 100+), have dedicated time and effort to a Texans-dedicated forum since 2004. . .none of this makes me special or a better fan than anyone else, but clearly I've cared about this franchise and want it to be something more than a dumpster fire.
But I'm close to pure apathy and just walking away. And there isn't much left in keeping this forum around (as we know). The Texans fanbase is evaporating before our eyes. They have not done anything to endear themselves to Houston other than existing, and when the owners start acting smug and arrogant, I figure it's just a matter of time before they become the H-town version of the NOLA Aint's.
I don't know. Just show some passion I suppose. It could instigate selling the team. This city ran one crappy owner out of town already. There's no reason it can't happen again.
Or at least some soul-searching by the owner, who by all accounts appears to be a RL Tommy Boy and is just happy cashing revenue-sharing checks from NFL New York.
Just my opions, but I'm not alone. There are lots of Texans fans that have just given up at this point. I'm not there yet, but life is too short to waste any of it on an entertainment product that is no longer entertaining.
I think showing any kind of give a damn is counter productive to our plight .... if they know we care , they can probably still get our dollars.
Better to be give a damn free - totally apathetic and that gets their attention .... empty seats , no one wearing their gear around town ... no money spent.
That's what it takes to get their attention.
