From the 'Why Mooch has to go!!! thread: Mooch isn't the worst NFL coach in the league. The real problem starts at the very top, as you alluded to. Bill Clay's having a hard enough time running his inherited business, and 40 years of $%%%%%ty Lions football shows he's inept at running that show too. I was pissed at Barry when he abruptly cut out, but over the last 5 years I've come to understand why he did. The Lions will always suck until the Ford family sells the franchise...but the catch22 is, as long as the Ford's own it...it won't draw an attractive offer from a potential buyer. If the Ford's were truly loyal to Detroiters and grateful for all they have reaped from their labors, they would sell the team to the highest bidder as soon as possible. I'm sure it would make long-time Lions fans everywhere ecstatic and would do much to awaken the team! Until that day comes, the Ford's will be happy to accept their 8 yearly donations from the unwitting via: tickets, suites, concessions, and parking. I have vowed to never again attend a Lions home game until the Fords are out of the picture.
