    Cheers to something we can all agree on, a good game. I would of added a game with no injuries but I'm sure you would not be upset if Millen spontaneously combusted

    Welcome to PP.O!
    We seem to always have some really great Lions fans that come here.
    We do not get too many, but they are very good people.

    We had a member named "Silvermane" and he was a great member!

    Well, it's 5 years old now. The newness has worn off.
    What kills me is that we still have a waiting list to get season tickets.
    Boggles my mind.

    I keep saying that people need to stop financially supporting the team.

    Wow it is hard to believe that it has been 5 years since it opened!


    I understand what you mean by the fans still supporting the team, a good comparison is the Packers of the 70's and 80's they were one of the worst teams in football for 2 decades but the fans bought out the stadium for every game and had a waiting list for season tickets.
    It made no since for the Packers to spend money to improve the team because they sold out every game so why should they.
    I went to 2 Viking / Packer games at Lambaugh back then and the stadium was half empty and you could buy tickets for half the face value.

    With a new stadium you get the honey moon period and people will go just to see the new stadium, but that usually wears off after 4 or 5 years and then the team has to perform or you will see the attendance start to fall.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
