Detroit Lions Archives
But not for anything good. No he hasn’t signed with a team desperate for a WR. The Ex Lions receiver has been in jail since Wednesday for a parole violation in Pontiac Michigan of a reduced charge (from assault and battery) of trespassing. He was to have partial confinement as part of his parole, but he violated that as well as testing positive for narcotics. Dumb man indeed.
He wasn’t smart enough to learn routes or lose weight or stop getting injured, why would anyone think he couldn’t stay at home while not sucking down some drugs to pass the time? Another reason why the firing of Matt Millen was a long time coming, what a waste of a draft pick.

It must suck to go home and talk to your damn weiner kids after work if you play for the Detroit Lions. Even the 1-15 Dolphins weren’t this much fun to watch last season. It’s not just the fact that the Lions are losing. Anyone can do that. They’re keeping it interesting. They’re giving teams points by running out of their end zone. Players are stealing other players’ luggage. The team is grabbing QBs as they walk by Ford Field. The Matt Millen effect is still at work.
Opposing teams are doing their part to remind the Lions how much they suck. They’re beating the shit out of them and they’re reinforcing the beatdowns with verbal reminders. It’s gotten so bad that Lions players have stopped fighting back.
“[The Jacksonville Jaguars] were cracking jokes,” Lions running back Kevin Smith said. “They thought we were a joke. They said we (weren’t good). They were saying that to me, that I (wasn’t good). And I told them they (weren’t good), too. And they said, ‘Well, not as bad as (you).’ And I said, ‘You’re right.’ (Because) we haven’t won one game.”
Someone hasn’t been pwned like that since Billy Madison pwned that kid for hating on Donkey Kong. “You know something? You suck!” Rod Marinelli might want to consider letting Daunte Culpepper play in the chinchilla coat. There’s something to be said for losing in style.
One of the great things international soccer has over American sports is the soccer chant or song. All teams have them and they range from the basic (“Chelsea!”) to the personal (“With a packet of sweets and a cheeky smile, Wenger is a fucking pedophile!”). There are songs that reference holidays. “On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, one Cantona and an Eric Cantona!” You then have the statements of fact such as “You’re shit and you know you are!” or “You’re not very, you’re not very, you’re not very good at all!”. Lions fans would do well to learn the statement of fact chants. The players have them down.
“I’m tired of saying we are making progress, I’m tired of saying we were close, and I’m tired of saying we just need to execute,” center Dominic Raiola said Monday. “It is the same thing week after week.”
“I’m out of things to say,” he said, one day after the Lions dropped to 0-7 with a 25-17 loss to Washington. “It’s hard to even go anywhere without feeling embarrassed.”
You almost feel sorry for players like Raiola but then you think of clowns like Matt Millen and Tatum Bell and laugh. Millen may be gone but his ghost remains. The Lions started 0-12 in 2001 so 0-7 is old hat to players like Raiola. He really needs to look at the bright side. 0-7 is better than 0-12. Never mind the winning percentage. Of course, there’s a good chance they’ll be worse than last year’s 1-15 Dolphins.
Raiola might want to consider one of the stylish bags as modeled by a Lions fan above. It’s biodegradable and 2-ply so it’s strong enough to contain any and all embarrassment or shame felt by the wearer. It’s also better than plastic. We all know what happens to people especially small children that play with plastic bags on their heads. They have an super awesome time, boss man!!
Matt Millen is finally gone but Detroit is still losing its damn mind.
