    Joey Harrington told cbs.sportsline.com that he received death threats while in Detroit and that games got so bad, he had to take his family out of the stands because fans wanted to fight his mother....

    That is actually pretty classless.
    Fighting with his mom? Seriously, WTF Detroit?

    Top Down or Trickle Down!

    Ford
    Millen
    Coaches
    Players
    Fans

    Yep, the fans were acting without class.

    But seriously, who wants to put themselves through that anyway, if I was mom I would be watching on DTV or in a Box up high.
    The conditions weren't favorable for hospitable environment in Det for a long time.
    Those fans probably have short fuses from watching there team lose so much.
    Still no escuse.

    I get pissed when the vikes struggle and all that, but I would never let my emotions go that far and to have that much hatred (unless against Favre! lol jk) is not right.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    No kidding.
    It isn't like Joey was trying to make the Lions bad.
    The organization was bad - he was just a product of it.
    Taking it out on his mom and family is ridiculous.

    You can go to any NFL stadium on any Sunday and find some classless people.
    I wonder how many people get taken out of NFL stadiums each week for PI, or unruley behavior.
    But, you cannot blame the entire fan base for the actions of a few fans.
    Trying to start a fight with the QB's mother is pathetic.
    Whoever did that must really be one sorry SOB.
    But, don't blame all Detroit fans.

    I guess they couldn't get a hold of Millen, so I guess his mother was the next best target.

    Sounds like Michigan fans.
    They demand . . . and usually get . . . greatness from their sports teams.
    For some reason, the LIONS are the exception and I'm not a bit surprised.

    The general Michigan populous is the most sports minded, outdoor living people I have ever met, or lived with.
    They take sports seriously, and unfortuantely a few morons give the group a bad name.
