For three straight seasons a friend and I shared season tickets, and for three seasons we thought why do we even waste our money and time on this group of dudes that have the nerves to call themselves a pro football team.

Last season was the worst of them all, after going 0-16 anyone has the right to dispute that they could have done a better job as a general manager, coach, player, or whatever you want to say regarding any position in the Lions organization. That's right the suckiest person in your fantasy football league has the right to say they could have done better and they would be right, because you can't do any worse than 0-16, unless you count the preseason.

After the 0-16 season we said that's it, we would be better off doing something else with our time and money, but when the news of the new season began to buzz we realized we didn't mean it, we (my buddy and I) still left the door open just a little bit. After watching the news and seeing the Lions unleash their logo (which really isn't much of an upgrade in my opinion) and hearing one of the decision makers sort turn a deaf ear to the fans.

I could be wrong and I hope I am, but it sounds like he and the other decision makers have their minds made up and they are going to go against what the fans want once again. "CURRY, CURRY, CURRY" sounds nothing like Barry and the shouts of "Don't draft Stafford" weren't by just one or two people. The people who where there are more into the Lions than I am (or they don't have jobs or something), and it's time that they get what they want for once.

I said the door was open a little bit, but the day that I hear the Goddell utter the words "With the number one pick the Detroit Lions select Matt Stafford" is the day that I say so-long to the Lions, and this will be a forgotten fan that begins his own draft.

Your team may be on the clock.
