Lions boss calls Bears a “bunch of thugs”

The Lions keep trying to kill irony, and it simply will not die.

First serial penalty getter Ndamukong Suh told his teammates they had to stop getting so many penalties, and now the man in charge of one of the most-arrested franchises off the field and aggressive on it is calling someone else “thugs.”

Specifically, Lions vice chairman Bill Ford referred to the Bears that way, during a speech at the team’s annual Courage House dinner last night.

“It was really alive, and it was alive when we played those same bunch of thugs on Monday Night a couple [years ago],” Ford said, via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. “When this place gets going it’s electric and we do have wonderful fans. Our fans are amazing and we would love to pay them back and bring home a winner, and I love the way this team is playing right now.”

That's actually being nice. I would call their fans a worse name.

Re: Lions boss calls Bears a “bunch of thugs”

I just heard this on sportstalk ... wtf?! This is exactly the point where the Lions start getting ahead of themselves and start thinking they've arrived, ... I was gonna' pick 'em to finally beat Green Bay in Lambeau this Sunday, but now I don't know, <headscratch> ... this kind of stupid swagger always derails their forward progress ... wait until you win something, boys!.

LOL, I watched almost every snap of that game and see a ton of Bears games. They aren't anything even remotely close to thugs.

Re: Lions boss calls Bears a “bunch of thugs”

The audience apparently laughed at the remark, and a team spokesman called Birkett after the fact to underscore the humorous nature of the comment.
This /\ .
Just to clarify, it wasn't the head coach who said this, it was Lions vice chairman Bill Ford (I'm guessing a decendant of the Automobile 'ford family') who said this. He really could have been talking out his butt.

Second, sounds like he was talking out his butt to get audience reaction during a charity dinner. Those things are so boring you literally have to say ANYTHING to get the audience to stay awake.

I knew Billy years ago and he's an extremely nice and funny guy. I can't imagine anyone taking offense to this obvious humor - unless you're a cretinous troll.
