Lions to LA? Nah, We're Cool

There is a group of intrepid fans looking to dump the Lions on Los Angeles. Hey, thanks for the offer, but we're good.

Too bad there isn't a federal bailout available to save the Detroit Lions. And think about that for a moment. How incompetent do you have to be in order to be the worst franchise in Detroit?

But here's a memo to the Ford Motor Company ... maybe you should stop paying for stadium naming rights. In fact, if Ford is so strapped for cash, maybe they should be forced to sell the Lions. Why should the Ford family be able to beg for government money while they are producing the worst team in the NFL? Ford gets flush with cash, and suffering Lions fans get a new owner. Send this one up to the Big O, too.

Lions? Please. SoCals deserve champions, not some franchise that promises fans the world and delivers nothing.

Only if they bring back George Plimpton as starting QB.

Stadium naming is advertising. Should Ford stop running commercials asking people to buy their cars, too? It seems like that would be a bad way to get people to buy your product.

At $1.24 a share, Ford is a buy.

I have to agree with Seitz, though. Maybe THN will purchase a Super Bowl Ad, and then we can cry for a government handout when we don't make money. Genius.

The Chargers will win it all one of these years. That running back of theirs is very talented.

Unless LT quits before passing Jim Brown's career mark.

Agreed. Forced selling of the franchise to their workforce would be my recommendation. Crappy or no, they're still in the NFL, which means they're a cash cow, which equals unemployment benefits for everyone!!
