    No I actually look forward to the Thanksgiving game. You are talking about punishing me because of that. I didn't do anything to be punished for.

    Come on, man. You've already used that pithy dismissal. Get some new material. That one's stale.

    It would bum me out.
    To be honest, any fan that is still THAT committed to this piece of shit franchise DESERVES to be punished for it.

    I have NO problem with the NFL forcibly taking the Ford's toy away and telling them they can have it back when they field a winning team. The league WON'T, because as I mentioned, it's the only way to get the Ford family angry, and the league rather likes FoMoCo's dollars, but I'd have no problem with it happening. Fuck the Fords. Let them cry about it.

    This organization emphatically doesn't even deserve this one thing, though. Especially something as prestigious as hosting a game on Thanksgiving. They've had it for like 85 years. If I was the NFL, I'd take it away from them. They've had it long enough. They have done absolutely zero to earn keeping it. And believe me growing up it meant a TON to me for the Lions to get that spotlight. It felt like our Superbowl, because lord knows we weren't going to an actual Superbowl. I hate saying it, I really do. But this is a horrific, pathetic organization and they deserve absolutely nothing.

    So embarrassing. I wonder how many people in this country who want to watch good games that day collectively roll their eyes every Thanksgiving morning when they know they'll be subjected to arguably the most inept professional sports franchise this country has to offer. For 3 plus hours. Every single Thanksgiving. I know they started the tradition but I'm still amazed that the NFL allows them to play that day. On national television in front of the entire country.. And you just know that whatever broadcast duo is stuck with that game (Buck/Aikman or Nantz/Romo) just cringes knowing they have to spend the greatest holiday this country has in Detroit, watching that level on ineptitude while pretending like it's meaningful. If I was them I'd be taking shots of bourbon during commercial breaks just to get through it.
    The only time the Ford family has ever gotten visibly angry at the NFL and threatened ad dollars was that brief moment where the NFL considered rotating the Thanksgiving Day game among other teams. It's the one time the REAL family business thinks they have a largely captive national audience to bury them in the Ford brand name.

    I was against the Campbell hire at the time, but think he deserves a shot before judging him.
    Really like the staff Campbell assembled... that's as far as my opinion will go about him in 2021.

    Point being... be mad at the roster, not the coaching staff. Holmes and Campbell deserve some time before judging them.
    Hell, I think he has a problem with being over-aggressive, especially considering the roster he has. But hey, I'm probably Campbell's biggest critic who didn't want him hired in the first place, so if that's the worst I can come up with, ya gotta figure he's doing alright.

    Now, now, lets be nice. We aren't writing novels here. And, to be fair, Its pretty much on par with today's journalist.

    Yeah, but they hired Chris Spielman as Special Assistant (to the) Team President, so that makes Woods ok.
