Over the years in a less than sold out stadium, marches to rid the team of an incompetent President and suffering through the 0 and 16 season. Ive learned one thing, I'm a real fan. I never adopted another team because my local NFL team struggled. I didn't suddenly become a Patriot fan because they had the best record. I was a Detroit Lions fan. Always have always will. Being that fan earned me years of tease and torment. From the same people that are cheering loudly and showing up to the games. Where were these real fans for the past 6 or 7 years. Oh thats right cheering Tom Brady or Drew Brees. Only showing up to Ford Field when their adopted team played the horrible Lions, dawning an Steelers or Giants jersey as if they always remained faithful to that team. Yet now they are at the stadium on Sundays wearing a Suh or Stafford jersey, preaching to the loyal fans that we don't deserve to be called a true fan. Why? Maybe cause we have learned a 6 and 2 record means nothing yet. Maybe cause when the team went 5-0 and we still weren't buying are Super Bowl tickets. All I am saying is you cant rent a team because they are on a high and only to sell them off when the times are tough. I want to see all these fans when we go through another long streak of below average. If your still there with us, then and only then you will be a Real Fan.
