Honestly, this isn't just an issue with the lions. It's a league wide issue, if you want to call it that (even though FOXsports, ESPN, etc will never EVER dare go there and actually bring this up)....
I honestly think the NFL in the last 10 years has become a giant pile of shit. I might be "labeled" by some but aaahhhh, fuck it. Here goes. The amount of ghetto hoodrat pride that makes up the NFL nowadays is sickening. The majority of the players are black which in and of itself is definitely not an issue. It's the attitude that comes along with it, and the "I'm above the law" thinking....just like in the inner cities where a lot of these dudes come from.
I moved to Baltimore 3 years ago and this city LOVES their players. WAAAAY bigger fanbase than the lions, yet their god who retired last year, Ray Lewis, miraculously showed that 13 years ago, yes, in this country with enough money, evidence can disappear and yes, you can get away with murder. They honestly believe the man is innocent as well as all the others who get themselves jammed up. They fail to look at the fact that even though for right now, he might be high on the hog, with all that money....he's still a POS.
Professional football players and rappers are GODs to these people because they show over and over that with enough money, you can live the good life, and continue to be a piece of shit.
Not saying this sort of activity hasn't happened in the past with players who arn't from the hood and arn't black, but I honestly think that it's gotten a lot worse as they begin to take over more and more of the NFL. Sure, they might be good players, but soooooo many of them it seems are horrible people. If any of us get caught up in even a fraction of the shit these guys do, we are fired....no questions asked, but these fuckers walk on water any more it seems. To look at this problem from a realistic perspective, you have to look at the roots of it.
They're not shitty players because they play for the lions. Or the Raiders. Or the Browns. They're shitty PEOPLE who have no respect....for anyone...because that's the way the majority of them were brought up, with their race being the main thing their parent(s) emphasized and that they needed to RIIIIIISE UP.....and do their race good and make their race proud.
I see it all the time at my work and it sickens me. Dude who probably shouldnt even be there to begin with, but because he is a city resident, and a black guy (minority)....even though in Baltimore he is DEFINITELY the majority, he gets the job. Well he gets himself jammed up with problems that in any other place of employment would get him fired.
But......it's ok though for them at my place of employment due to the quality of many of the upper ranking bosses, (many of whom were magically wanded into their positions and promoted, the same way they were hired, and who did not have to take the same tests and put in as much time as the hundreds before who actually jumped thru the hoops the way your supposed to for promotion)
Instead of firing people who are incompetent, drug users, getting into fights, drunks....the upper echelon takes these people under their wings and protects them, looks out for them and basically teaches them the ropes of what hoops to jump thru, etc to stay on the job.....under the excuse that "well this man has a family" or "we dont want more people out on the streets than there already are"......this might work in some places, but when you work in public safety and are in contact with the public 24/7, in their houses, handling them, etc...IT DOESNT CUT IT! There are so many better people out there who would be awesome at this job that don't get it because of political reasons and this is what we end up with. And as long as they keep getting wanded into the upper positions, I honestly believe they don't give a fukc about anyone but people who are like them....with the same color skin as them.
Not all of them of course, but many.
I have black buddies I hang out with who see the big picture and it makes them want to puke. And they agree....maybe this is limited to the Baltimore/DC/Philly area because I don't see the blacks I know of back home around Detroit act this way. It's like they're carrying on the hatred from 150+ years ago still to this day.....soo many of them have a shrine for Obama in their houses set up, or will be rockin an Obama t-shirt, but if you ask them about his foreign policies or his stance on gun rights or gay marriage, their clueless....THEY COULD CARE LESS ABOUT HIM AS A LEADER OF EVERYONE....THEY SIMPLY SEE BLACK AND ARE ALL FOR IT, REGARDLESS OF IF THEY AGREE WITH WHAT THE MAN IS, OR ISNT ALL ABOUT! These are the POS's who voted this guy in office.
Sorry for the rant.....just figured I'd give my honest $0.02 as to what has happened to the NFL, which sad to say it seems is maybe a sign of things to come in other areas.

I think you hit the nail on the head.
Any Given Sunday is a movie that sums all of this crap up pretty well too.

You know you guys are fighting about something that's along the same lines as Miley Cyrus' booty shorts right?
They're entertainers. They make millions of dollars playing a game. It's not important at all.
Watch yourself. I'll light you up.
