If the Super Bowl were to end up Dallas vs. Houston...how big would that be in Texas?
Here in Houston it would be a nightmare leading up to the game.
Give me more. Please.
It would be absolutely monstrous! I live in kind of the "no mans land" in between. There are quite a few fans of both clubs here, also lot of folks that like both teams.
Don't live there anymore, but grew up in DFW and lived in Houston for a bit and have many friends there. A few years ago I think it would have been Houston vs the rest of Texas, but now I think the Texans have been around for a while and are starting to have success..I think the state would stop down for that, Texas pride would swell and it would be crazy.
With the two fan bases, .. how ugly could it get Hostile?
There has always been an unspoken rivalry between the two cities. People from Houston tend to have "little brother syndrome" to the city of Dallas b/c of the Cowboys, the tv show Dallas, and the glitz/glamour stereotype of the city.
The Texans treat the pre-season games against Dallas like the Super Bowl so I already have an idea of what it will be like here in Houston. There are a ton of Cowboys fans here in Houston and there will be bitter trash talking. This state still bleeds blue and silver though, so it will be business as usual in other areas.
Well Houston fans 1st off have never seen their team make it to the SB so this city would go nuts then to add the Cowboys into the mix would only generate more excitment. Heck when they have beaten Dallas in Pre season it is a big deal can't even imagin what it would be like for a SB. I would have to leave town for a while. :laugh2:
In Dallas it would just be the same as any other Cowboys Super Bowl.
The Texans are building a small following locally of folks upset with Jerry or transplants from Houston but the Texans have about the 25th largest fan following compared to Dallas with a top 3 following.
Dallas gets to the Super Bowl and the Eagles fans will be more hateful than the Texans whom we face. The Texans will just be glad to be there.
Dallas vs anyone is a huge game and the anyone will get support from all our haters. That support will swell their ranks quite a bit but not like the bandwagon fans we'll see hop aboard team Cowboy.
Probably more like Texas-OU or UT-AM...
Lots of trash talking and bucking up...IMHO
That's the only team I dread facing inthe SB. The reason for that is we, as Houston area Cowboys fans, have always had the "no SBs" to through in Oilers/Texans fans faces but if they win one while facing us that would be a Houston area Cowboys fans worst nightmare.
Just to let you know, the Texans fans biggest win to date was 1910. For those that don't know that's what they call the franchises first win, the score was 19-10.
It would be MORE than Cowboys vs. Texans. It would be THE CITY OF DALLAS vs. THE CITY OF HOUSTON. All the people who never even watched a single game would represent their city. I've grown up in Dallas, but my mom is from Houston. We don't like each other. I loathe and despise everything about that city. From what I hear from most Houstonians, the feeling is mutual. It would be like a temporary civil war, basically.
Yep, pretty much. It would be a HUGE deal. The economy would probably shut down cause no one would be working, just texting/emailing/msg board/facebook trash talk.
If the Oilers hadnt choked away that game to the Bills it could have happened.
I think it'd be pretty big in Houston and for Houstonians. Not sure how much it would matter to the DFW area.
I think I'd have to disown all my friends, because they're extreme Cowboys haters, and then watch the superbowl alone.
Yep, its mainly a one way rivalry. Heck, i found myself rooting for them some last year. I like Schaub, seems like a really good guy in his radio bits he does on monday mornings...and Andre Johnson is probably my favorite non cowboy player. Not your typical diva WR.
But boy did that Game 1 lost to them reeeeaallly hurt.
and pray we win because it will be hell on earth if the Boys lost.
I love that show :laugh2:
I've always lived in DFW. For me, it wouldn't be any different than playing against any other team.
It would give the local Media some extra side stories.
My brother lives in Houston and it would be a Huge deal there.
