For us a hardcore fans we have weathered much worse. 0-16 makes you tough when you are the laughing stock of pro sports. With one bad decision Suh has taken chat to accusation and finger pointing. This goes far beyond him. Even though on twitter Mike Peirra called Suh not dirty but filthy. Thanks Mike you're a hack anyways but thanks. Chat of Lions being dirty was easy to defend when it was just penalties and offensive lineman talking trash. Now the media has video ammo and well..If you're a bandwagon fan you might consider jumping ship now. Don't say I didn't warn ya. If one thing raises hatered and trash talking it's not winning or losing. It's being considered a cheater and a dirty team. If you don't belive me what is your opinion of the Raiders franchises of the 60's and 70's? Sure they won alot but be honest do you want the Lions to be that? If not well Green Bay is that way folks.
Suh is our player and he is a good guy we all know that. Defensive lineman Suh and talking with fans Suh are 2 diffrent beings. Maybe Suh has anger inside that he needs to control I dunno. I'm not a theapist but at this point he only going to seen as the captain of this ship of dirty cheaters and cheap shot artist. Justified or not! Especially when Jack Asses like Yahoos Jason Cole writes blogs like this. http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_ylt=Agj2pRx6BX1Gc3hfA772p9dDubYF?slug=jc-cole_ndamukong_suh_lions_stomp_packers_112411
Then before you know it Skip Bayless will be debating on why the Lions must cheat to win. I hope I am wrong but I see the clouds over lake Michigan and they are not a beatiful sight. Stick by your team and while you have every right to question them and you may not like it. Do not let everyone else walk on us. Those days are over! No more will we be push overs as a team or a fan base. If they say the Lions play dirty you say well..kicked your ass. I am not asking you to be proud of the label nor am I asking you toy help spread the label. All I am saying is if you have always been a hardcore Lions fan. DON'T let this media garbage and fan trashing effect the years of emotional pain you have put yourself through to get this far. It won't always be this way but it is coming. Suh is 30 years to late he plays football the way Butkus and Nitchke played football. It's not tolerable anymore he is young I have faith he will find his zone. When he knows his boundrys and limits he will be one of the greatest players ever. Suh alone has not given us this reputation but ESPN has to report on something. A dirty team who plays 60's style football makes for a good story. Instead of Tebow and lolipops theres a true contreversy and we will al be on the negative side of it. As the wins come and the players grow that hatred and trashing will quickly become respect.
You can call Detroit whatever you want! Call us Dirty!, Call us mean!, Call us Cheaters! You cannot call us Losers,Soft or walk overs. Don't except it and don't call for anyones job stand by your team it will payoff. It will also get better. We will begin to learn who the true fans are again and as long as they stick together we can't lose. A storm is brewing don't say I didn't warn you.
