The question should be obvious as to who is responsible. The fact is William Clay Ford who owns the team should be the most responsible for the last five years one could say Matt Millen is responsible after all he's the GM of the team with the worst losing record in sports over the last five years. Having said that it pains me to say however that as much as I love the lions and living in enemy teritory the fans are also partly to blame... why might one ask? Although the Orange out from last year and the Millen man march may have shown the rest of the NFL fans that we are both LOYAL to our beloved team and TIRED of of the scoffers and the jokes and so fourth it also did the one thing that really showed how gullible at some point we can be IT PUT MONEY IN FORDS POCKET! We had the orange out but we also BOUGHT the tickets to get in the gates wich fattened old Willys pocket that much more The best way to remove Millen and send a message that the fans of this team have had enough is to stop paying Ford all together an empty stadium will speak greater volumes then an orange shirt ever did. Having said that Marinelli and Martz deserve at least a chance but a nother 5-11 season is unexeptable. 7-9 would show potential anything below 6-10 is the same old garbage.

You know if anyone stops to think about it the only common denomiator of the lions since they became losers in the 1960's is Willaim Clay Ford. They have had good or excellent players, coaches, or front office poeople in between times. His first goal is to make money and if losing makes money it's ok with him. We need an owner who wants to win even if it costs a little money to get it started.
