    Lions Fans Planning Walk Out

    Posted 3:23 p.m. EST, December 6, 2006
    LIONS FANS PLANNING WALK OUT

    If the calendar says "December," it means that disgruntled denizens of Detroit are finding new ways to express their displeasure with the refusal of the Lions to poop-can President/CEO Matt Millen.

    A year ago, an "Orange Out" was proposed for a late-season game against the Bengals.
    The game was preceded by a "Millen Man March."

    This time around, fans plan to get up and leave with eight minutes remaining in the first half of the game against the Bears on December 24.
    It's a move reminiscent of the "walk out" staged by Orioles fans in September at the behest of "Nasty" Nestor Aparicio of WNST-AM radio in Baltimore.

    Meanwhile, there's no truth to rumors that, with nine minutes remaining in the first half of the Bears game, the video board operator at Ford Field will display the following message:
    "ANYONE WHO LEAVES WITHIN THE NEXT TWO MINUTES OF THE GAME IS GAYER THAN JOEY HARRINGTON.
    NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT."
    [Editor's note:
    We're not saying that Joey Harrington is gay.]

    Do you think there will actually be more than a few hundred doing this?

    Yeah, lets pay $100 to see a game, drive to the field, pay for parking, buy expensive food, just to leave a half hour later. :

    And these fans think that Millen is dumb?

    That's hard to call. On one hand I wanna say they are some seriously good fans for willing to waste a game ticket for the hope of bettering their team in the future. But on the other end of things, how could you ever walk out on your team?
    Wait, if there's cat food in this bag............................

    When you are in your 6th straight season with at least 10 Ls in each of those seasons it calls for drastic measures.
    Make a statement.
    They wouldn't be walking out on their team, they would be disapproving of how they have been managed.
    It's safe to say there isn't a fairweather Lions fan sporting their jersey at this point in time because the weather has been foul for quite some time.

    You know who else I like, browns fans. Their team has been crappy for sometime too, but everytime I see them at sports bars they are loud, proud, and not leaving early.

    Instead of a walkout, why not just stay home.

    I agree, I don't think even the idiots in Detroit will do that!

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

    They should pass out free fire Millen t-shirts before the game and see how many people wear them
