Detroit Lions = Ultimate Cheapskates

Postby The Lung » Wed Apr 29, 2009 2:22 pm

I guess with that 41.7 million guaranteed for Stafford, they have to cut corners elsewhere. :-t

Proof that times are tough in Detroit:

Lions season-ticket holder Todd Taylor won a No. 34 Kevin Smith jersey over the weekend at the team’s NFL draft party at Ford Field. Feeling the “Smith” name plate on the back “looked bulky,” Taylor told The Detroit News he removed it and was “shocked” to find a Jones name plate underneath. The Lions appear to have “repurposed some old Kevin Jones jerseys” for the giveaway.

Ouch! That is pretty cheap. Now a Billy Simms jersey would have been pretty nice.

No one does cheap better than the Clippers. I don't know if they ever did a jersey sweepstakes where they gave out Marcus Camby jerseys only to find out it used to be a Darius Miles one, but all I know is they're cheaper than the Lions because they're owned by Donald Sterling. :-b
