He refuses to change leadership and direction with Millen and he now ends up with an 0-16 football team and arguably the worst owner ever. As part of the board at Ford, he refuses to, over time, run a good company and put a quality product on the road. Again, demonstrating his poor leadership. Now he's got an 0-16 football team to go with his 1-15 car company. I'm loving it.

As a point of clarification. Willie Clay Ford has absolutely nothing to do with Ford Motor Co. In fact it is widely held that the family let him buy the Lions as a door prize for not having enough business savy to be apart of the family business.

You sure about that?

"After his older brother Henry Ford II retired as head of Ford, William remained as a director of the Company. He was chairman of the most important of the directors' committees, the Finance Committee.[7] He sat on the Ford Board of Directors for 57 years, retiring on May 12, 2005. [8] His son was serving as Ford's CEO at the time."

You work for one of the big 3 or the UAW?

His seat on the finance committee was cermonial, a position usually headed by someone not involved in executive decision making, AKA running the business. He was a eunich on the board like the Lions are eunichs on a football field.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
