    Anybody been to a Detroit Lions home game in Detroit?

    Has anybody been to a game in detroit before?
    If so, is it safe to wear away jerseys there?
    I'm wondering because I plan on buying Vikings/Lions tickets when they go to detroit, and likely will be sporting some vikings gear.
    Are they as aggressive as places like Pittsburgh, Philly or Buffalo? Or are they more laid back since generally, they all gave up on their team years ago?

    I have not been to Ford Field yet - it is one of the places that I would really like to go though.
    I suspect that it isn't nearly as bad as Philly or Buffalo.
    Hell, odds are that there will be almost as many Minnesota fans as Lions fans there anyway.

    Pop over to one of the Lions forums and see what they have to say about it.

    There's always lots of purple at ford field. I was going to go down to Detriot last year, but I bought a plasma and hd receiver instead, needless to say I should have done both.

    Re: Anybody been to a Detroit Lions home game in Detroit?

    Only reason I'm wondering is because Detroit's known as one of the sketchiest and dangerous cities in america.
    Its not in the stadium i'm worried about, rather than the walk back to the car.

    Depending on the time of the year, I might make this trip as well.

    bad... bad things.. I was lucky enough that the Chargers lost to the buffalo game I went to and had people wanting to fight me on the walk back (never spoke a word to them) , imagine if they had won?

    I saw about 3 chargers fans (go figure) get kicked out of the stadium for getting in fights with bills fans.
    (and that was just in nearby sections too).
    That was also the game that the stadium lost power, and there were no concessions, shitters or scoreboard/play clock for most of the game, so that may have had something to do with it.
