LOL its no where near over. Senior still owns this team. Until he sells(which will never happen) the Lions will nothing short of a Division 2 college franchise.

It's not over till we quit being bailed out by companies that sell out the games. That, in turn, will cut down on Ford Field revenue. After a year or so of this, maybe Ford would do something, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

i really doubt it...they rake in so much TV money. lets just say they are 5,000 tickets short every week. lets just assume $50 a ticket, that's only $250,000 (plus concessions, but still)...would $2-3 Million really be a big hit to Ford?

Yes, I doubt it as well, but where does Ford draw the line? He doesn't care how bad they've drafted over the years, he doesn't care how bad his team has been for years, he doesn't care what sort of crap comes out of his coaches or GM's mouths, and he doesn't care what we say. What makes him finally say "Matt, you're fired!!" I really can't say. Even then it won't be "over", but we've gone over that ad nauseum.

Not really, it's more like the nice hum of a fan in the background, very soothing.

I will be booing from the second I start walking down the stairs to my seat. We did it in 2003 or whenever they started 0-12...they all run together now. Every play we boo.
