I can only be what I am. I'm not a big fan of the Detroit boards. Before this season, I lurked around the boards, never really participating because some of what you're pointing out . . . I didn't feel they accurately represented the pulse of Lions' Nation . . . I still feel that way . . .
Well man, if by that you mean that you are dealing with grouchy/negative/surly/sky-is-falling Lions fans, well we have been there before, and I know what you mean. It takes time to re-educate, to re-tool people's thinking, and turn a fan base around to see the light and embrace winning ways. We STILL have a few people who freak out about stuff that happened to the Saints years ago, expecting it to happen again. They think that at any moment the elegant 4-horse carriage with livery driver that is the New Orleans Saints, will turn back into a pumpkin and rats...not likely to happen...You just have to be calm, rational, and teach them that it's a process, a turnaround, an ongoing thing. It takes a long time to build a team. I still kinda have this grim feeling for you, that the Lions are going to run into a buzzsaw tomorrow evening, probably like you've never seen before, but you do seem to realize it's a building thing and putting pieces together....take that to your boards and preach the gospel! You can be the one who is ahead of the curve.

Like he said ... he's high.
. . . we're inside, out of the cold, have everyone healthy, have nothing to lose and have hopefully regained our composure . . . other then that, IDK.

. . . I don't 'smoke' either, it's a honolulu blue & silver" high . . .

go Lions.

. . . no, most the time is just the opposite, it's the bandwagon/slappy fans who are so starved for success they can't look at their team objectively and view any less then glowing critique of the team as a full scale attack . . . Suh can do no wrong, Fairley is a ProBowler, Kevin Smith is an AllPro running back, it's not our guys - the refs are against us . . . it's seeing the world through honolulu blue & silver goggles and they can't accept any accountability for our professional athletes. Just go on a Detroit board sometime, you'll see what I mean . . . WhoDat!656 will tell ya' . .

go Lions.
