It seems like Matt Millen is still running the show in Detroit and can't take the criticism that the fans are dishing out. Boo freaking hoo Millen. He should have been literally kicked out the door last week along with Mooch. How do the owners justify a record of 20-56 the last five season? It's like if a kid was given nasty Spam to eat every single Sunday for the past five years, I think after awhile the kid would start to complain about it too. Heck he might go postal on them.
So now they start to tackle fans with "Fire Millen" signs at the game starting in the THIRD quarter. Guess it's okay to say "Fire Millen" in the first two quarter. Who knew? What made it funnier was that they were playing keep away with the sign and passing it to other fans.
One fan started to run around the stadium, through seats, giving high fives to other fans, while security was chasing him. Even players started to notice. Unfortunately he was tackled. Damn.
Security says confiscating the sign has nothing to do with the message. They said signs are prohibited in the stadium. Hold on...cough..cough...bull #$%!! The fan who brought in the sign said this about security.
"When I got to Ford Field, they pat you down. You have to open up your jacket. I was holding up the sign rolled up like this," Tobin demonstrated. "Security said unroll it. I unrolled it and showed it to the guy, and the security just shook his head and said you're good to go."
It's bad when security lets the "good guys" in when they're suppose to keep them out.
Finally because of the huge "Fire Millen" backlash and talk, the Detroit Lions have decided to shut down their message board. It just gets better and better. Thank you Matt Millen. You've shown even more how much of a joke you are.
