Did anyone else hear Mike Carlson on C4 this week say that the Houston fans haven't been the same since the Oilers left town? I know that he was discussing the Schaub injury situation where the fans were seen cheering,which was bad, but I got the feeling that Carlson was also referring to other events. Any ideas what else he might have been talking about, or has he just got some kind of chip on his shoulder about Houston fans in general?

I've not been able to identify any other events apart fro the Schaub incident which was pretty classless by the minority of fans who participated in the cheering.

Prior to this incident I had only ever read positive things about the Texan fans, notably about the amazing tail gaiting, the game time atmosphere and the high level of football knowledge of most of the fans.

The sad reality is that this minority probably exist in almost every fan base. In my humble opinion I certainly don't think Texan fans are viewed as a bad bunch.
