Well said, Angryman and Mooch. I'm glad they finally fired the guy, but if that's the only change they make not involving the players, I'm not interested either.

Not the least bit excited about anybody that has been involved in Millens shake down cruise. Meyhew has been DoorMatt's assistant GM in charge of player procurement. Anybody who has had even the appearence of any responsibility for drafting and hiring this current group of players should be ousted. What scares me is that Lord Ford agreed to release his favorite Chia pet from his football prison with the agreement that we wouldn't spend any money this year to replace him. So we keep insiders who have proven to be bad at their jobs. Even the Tom Lewand, who the local media seems to think is so good with the financial aspects, has this team in a very bad cap situation. Are the Lions now to take their time-tested approach and dump everybodies incompetetence into one person's basket? Are all of the problems with the Lions now laid on Millen and the others get off scot free? Classic Lions scapegoating, it is. Worked real well with Martz, didn't it?

I fixed this up and posted it in a topic in the Football Leftovers, but I just had to put it where I knew you all (fellow Lions fans) would catch it.

Well done. Would have rather a Fire NimRod were there instead. I think we are seeing the old man stepping down. I think Lil' Bill won a power struggle in getting Millen fired. I wonder if in the meeting between Lord Ford, Lil' Bill, and Millen had on Tuesday didn't include a gauntlett tossing by Lil' Bill to the tune of "Why don't you just ask Matt to resign Dad"? Lord Ford agreed and asked, whereupon Millen showed his character and declined. You'll remember that he had always maintained that if Lord Ford ever asked him to step down he would.
But when pressed he reveal just what a liar and thief he is.
So I wonder if Lord Ford was so shaken by how badly he was taken in by Millen that he is rethinking how much say he wants in the running of this team. For crying-put-loud the man is 83. Take a breather, Lord Ford. Maybe we can all breath a little easier.

And yet the Sun still rose this morning. Prolly players who are coached better, play better.
No need to apologize to Millen, he still doesn't think he did anything wrong. Shortest memory in history.
