    I envision Pat Caputo heading for the exits, only to have a gust of wind from the concourse in his face. The offending odor wafts from his body, much like Matt Foley, motivational speaker, and into the crowd.
    And only lardass Caputo, pants drooping from his ass, makes the lonely trip up the aisle....

    They did something like this last year too. When the Lions played the Cleveland Browns, a group of fans decided to wear all orange in protest of Millen, etc, etc.

    Lions' beat writer Nick Cotsonika for the Freep had a good lead addressing this earlier:

    Apparently, some fans are planning to walk out of Sunday's game at Ford Field. Honestly, though, you have to wonder why anyone would want to walk in.

    Anyway, these type of things are stupid to begin with. These just show that the fans have an emotional attachment to the team, which is what any owner would want. Apathy would work much better.

    Jeff Backus has a quote in an AP story this week saying something to the effect that "I don't care what they do really. They've paid their 60 or 80 bucks, and I can't really blame them for walking out. We don't put a good product out on the field."

    Is it fair to say that if Matt Millen is still GM of Detroit next year, there can be no doubt left that he has incriminating photos of William Clay Ford?

    Smart man that Backus... he speaks the truth. They might have some individual talent, but collectively, the Lions have to improve to suck.

    They should instead turn their backs to the field for the entire game.

    Matt Millen is the Isiah Thomas of the NFL... without the people skills and evaluation ability...or common sense....

    To paraphrase from The Critic,

    "If the team stinks, just don't go!"

    Got to appreciate that honesty. That said, if he's still around in 2007 ...

    Jeff Backus, the fucking pylon whom Matt Millen designated as the Franchise Player, thus guaranteeing he would be paid at a rate commensurate with the top five players in the league at his position, disregarding the fact that he isn't among the top 50 players in the league at his position.

    Cash your paycheck and commit another holding penalty, big boy.

    Granted, Millen's terrible. But the Lions have sucked for most of the last 50 years. Curious to hear Lions fans take on why that is.
