Twitter can be a cold and ugly town to navigate.
One day your mentions are full of praise and Corgi videos, and the next, someone’s calling you a talentless hack who should expire in a shallow ditch.
Hall took to Twitter to address the Lions fans at Ford Field, many of whom were booing their team as the Lions choked away a pivotal game to the abysmal New York Giants.
Disappointed with the presumed lack of support, Hall claimed she couldn’t believe a fanbase would treat its own team in such a manner.
You wouldn't even know we were playing at home the way these fans are booing our home team. #unbelievable— Kelly Hall (@kellybhall) December 22, 2013
Then came the response from @DetroitKoolAid, who dropped a room-clearing zinger that said everything on the hearts and minds of many Lions fans.
Yow. I'll give you a moment to fan a towel over your smoke detector after that tweet.
While the message wasn’t exactly complimentary, @DetroitKoolAid's tweet could’ve been ugly or crass, as frustration concerning Stafford’s pick-heavy ways has escalated immensely in the past six weeks. Stafford has thrown 11 interceptions in the last five games, his last coming in the form of a fourth-quarter pick-six against the Giants.
I've always been a Matt Stafford fan and still believe he can be big time. But the last six weeks, he was the problem in Detroit. #Lions— Mike Greenberg (@Espngreeny) December 23, 2013
It wasn't the prettiest way to close the door on the playoffs, but all parties involved in this awful Lions slide should know this: Fans boo because they care.
They know Stafford is better than this, and many believe he has the goods to take the Lions deep into the postseason. They just want a chance to see him prove it.
