That can be said about a lot of occupations though, so that argument is bullshit.

I don't care enough for it to be an argument. I enjoy watching NFL football, regardless if they are paid pennies or BILLIONS.

Prefer college football over all else though.

The Lions have had an excellent off season with the signing of Vanden Bosch and Burlesson. Sheffler is an great addition to compliment Pettigrew (who has proven to be "soft" but athletic) for our young quarterback. I don't believe they could have gone wrong with the second pick, Suh and McCoy would have both been good rookie signings to beef up holes in the defense. I wasn't particularly happy with Best getting signed at 30 overall, but it's an explosive player to add to a boring football time. This is a bad football time with lots of needs, which i believe they are on track to fill.

Overall I like the direction the Lions are going, and i hope Jim Schwartz can stick around as long as possible. Now all they need to do is lose that stupid ass "Gridiron Heros" song

yes, but 80,000 people don't pay to see those occupations. That is why these guys make so much money. Because they make the owners money.

Thank you for have something useful to say.


I totally agree with you on the offseason has been great. There gonna go undefeated in the preseason.

I think its going to come down to how quickly the team comes together and how quickly the rookies excel. Staford has to be awesome this year.

Once you learn his name, I will answer your questions.

Yes I am an idiot. I have been looking forward to the draft for weeks and I freakin lost track of time and missed the first pick.

yeah because donating more money to charities last year than you will make in a lifetime has no value to the world.

I'm curious as to what kind of money a running back "deserves?"

You have 260 lb men that run faster than dogs, and are training all year to hit you as hard as they can about 40-50 times in a few hour period???

I know I don't make what I deserve...and you would likely think I make too much.
