If you’re a Detroit Lions fan, you’re frustrated, upset, annoyed and “tired of being a Lions fan.” Maybe you’re joining the other disappointed fans and sitting around a bonfire with a Stafford jersey up in flames. Because maybe that will fix the Lions losing record right?!?
Maybe it’s just me, but you wouldn’t catch me burning a jersey of a team I love (and spent good money on) unless there were hot dogs. Okay, that’s a joke but honestly burning a jersey sets a bad example for Lions fans.
But, COME ON Detroit!! If you are a true Lions fans you can always keep a positive thought and hope for a winning season. But a true fan will always stand behind their team, whether it’s a winning or losing season.
Stafford’s start to the season hasn’t been as hot as his jersey has. But no player deserves to have their jersey burned.
He plays a key role on the team, yet other players can step up to the plate as well Offense and defense are both in a struggle this season. If the Lions were having a winning season, people would be wearing those Stafford jerseys with a big smile on their face.
“No matter how many #9 jerseys people burn or how many negative things people say about these players they will continue to fight for a championship for this city.” -Kelly Stafford
Regardless of the outcome every year, die-hard Lions fans have compared burning the jersey to “burning the American flag.” Let’s hope the Lions are on fire the rest of the season, instead of the jersey’s.
