Lions players file grievance! I can't believe it! Practice is to hard. We don't like contact. Rod's just so mean! Well girls, filing a grievance because you're expected to work hard and earn your millions speaks volumes about you as a person and explains great reason why we have been the laughing stock, bottom feeders, alge suckers of the league! I remember being a kid playing football in the back yard with other neighborhood kids and there wasn't one time I didn't come home with some sort of bump, bruise or cut. Did I have a players union to go to because I didn't like the way my buddy Bobby about tore my head off? No! Our unions were are mothers that settled whatever differences the kids had amoungst mothers. The very next day we were right back at it beating the heck out of one another and coming right back at night so our moms could tend to or wounds. I remember my mom asking "Why do you guys plays this stupid game?" I would respond by saying " Because I love playing" My point being we played for the enjoyment of the sport. Something our Lions have forgotten. We played not for money but instead for a chance to dream of becomming a pro or just to hang out with friends. Buddies! Our Lions are simply about the money and nothing more. The grievance proves that. One last thing before I finish. Every once in awhile being an adult theres thingsin life that you dont want to do or have no choice but to do it. Thats just life! And sometimes when the pressures on it doesn't hurt to take a step back and remember the good "ol days of things that you enjoyed as a kid. I wish the Detroit lions from top to bottom would all take a step back and remember how good it felt to get out there with their brothers and friends. It might just help them regain some of the passion for the sport. The same passion that lifted them to the Pros. If not, this them will always suck alge! Of course, this is all just one mans opinion!!!!
