You're 0-13!


If you are 0-13, you deserve any verbal abuse from fans that comes your way -- as long as the heckling doesn't cross the line in terms of being vulgar, overly personal or obviously offensive for some other reason.

If it's just about football, keep your obscene gestures to yourself and take it.

Lions fans deserve better than they've been given. Any fans deserve better than what Lions fans have been given. This is, potentially, the most incompetent team in NFL history, perhaps the first team ever to go 0-16 in a season. And it's not like this happened overnight. This franchise has been a laughingstock for some time.

Worry a little bit more about trying to win a game and quite a bit less about what the fans are saying.

I pay a lot of money to go to a football game, so I should therefore be able to get dangerously drunk, abusive to the visiting team's fans, and vomit on the guy in front of me. But it also includes the right to hurl personal and vulgar insults at the home team, especially when they stink.

And because these players are all millionaires, they should accept all our abuse with a smile, and be thankful for the opportunity to have their mothers' character slandered after my 11th beer.
