There are teams that get 3 and 4 or more prime time games....every year. We get a Thursday afternoon game and that is it. We also started the Thanksgiving game tradition 69 years ago, so I think keeping it in Detroit is not that big of a deal, because if not for us you may not be watching any NFL football today


It didn't feel like I was watching football today anyway with the way the Lions played. :-D

This from a Seahawks fan????

After reading this article, I'm inclined to agree with dream, mostly because of these paragraphs:

The fact is the Lions started playing on Thanksgiving back when no one else wanted to. The Lions, more than any other team, are responsible for the NFL having a presence on this day. Now that they've fallen on hard times and playing on Turkey Day is now seen as an honor, we're supposed to stop a 74-year tradition and take it away from them? That's like a family opening the first restaurant in a city no else wants to go to and after they make their mark and the city gains some prestige they're forced out to make room for some trendy club.

Where were those club owners back in 1934? Oh, that's right, they weren't even born. When the Lions started playing on Thanksgiving Day 74 years ago, only four other current NFL teams were in their current cities and had their current names. The Lions on Thanksgiving has been one of the few constants in an ever-changing league that would be well served to keep a few of the traditions that has made them the most popular league in America.

Great article Steeler. My sentiments exactly. Noone else wanted to play on Thanksgiving. We owe it to the Lions because there would be no Football yesterday without them.
