It’s finally come to this: an organized fan protest of the Detroit Lions and general manager Matt Millen. As a native of southeastern Michigan, I can sympathize with their plight. While there certainly are much worthier causes to march for – if marching is in your blood – you know the Lions franchise has lingered in the depths for too long.
When you read this account from the Detroit Free Press, however, you realize just how pathetic an attempt the fan protest was. All you can say is… wow. It’s embarrassing to think that Super Bowl XL comes to Ford Field in seven weeks. One might suggest the timing could hardly be worse.
