    Yeah the fans that still show up to the games and root on their team have my utmost respect...
    I'm sure to a certain extent the fans feel obligated, especially if they have season tickets. For everyone else, they feel forced to go, knowing no one else would buy them.

    Real loyalty would be to still sell out the stadium, so that it won't be blacked out like the last 4 out of 5 have been. I believe the exception game, was vs. the vikings. ;D

    i have a feeling if this game was in detroit, it would probably get a good turnout, lots of people would want to see a team make history and go 0-16

    hell no, I would much rather see a team within the NFCN go 0-16, i'd prefer it to be the packers, but i'll take the lions anyday.

    You are correct BBQ. The link is now corrected. Thanx for the catch.

    LOL! 2 pages of replies & not one other person even took a peek at the article besides BBQ & me.

    LMAO!! If you had read my comment, you would know that is not true.

    Why does it seem like you enjoy belittling others?

    I did read both of your posts. I even replied to one. You didn't mention anything about the link not working.

    It has nothing to do with "belittling" anyone. I was merely surprised that it took that long for anyone to mention it wasn't working.

    If anyone should be belittled, it would be me. I'm the one that "hosed" the link.

    I must say that the last game got quite close, till Kitna decided the Lions didn't want a win.

    I hope and think we'll win this one. The team screams mediocrity on every position, while we have a good passing offense and secondary.

    If we lose to the Lions, I'll dump my avatar and go Viking for a while, if that's ok with you guys

    So, what you're saying is you are an easily lead sheep, and cheer for a team, but have no real loyalty to them?

    Oh, and you do realize KGB has been released, correct?

    Re: Detroit winces as Lions approach football infamy

    No, I was kidding. I'm a Packers fan. I always will be a Packers fan, and I don't see how that could change.

    And yes, I do, But he's still my favorite player, seems like someone has to be gone for a year or five before you can be a 'fan' of him again or so.

    Maybe I should start a disclaimer containing this.
