There’s a Reason the Lions Can’t Sell Tickets, and This Might Have Something to Do With It

Filed under: Lions, NFC North, NFL FansThere’s a reason Lions fans show up to games sporting paper bags over their heads. The obvious answer is Matt Millen, who has become something of the anti-Karl Rove for the greater Detroit sports scene.

Rove, whose political “genius” became legendary after George W. Bush was elected to a second term, was soon responsible for everything from setting up Dan Rather, to using Barack Obama to torpedo Hillary Clinton’s bid for the Democratic nomination (wait, wasn’t that Bill’s job?). For the Lions’ faithful, every time something goes wrong, the natural inclination is to just assume Millen had something to do with it. Which provides the perfect explanation for the team’s marketing campaign for 2008 season tickets.

“All that matters is, right here, right now.” Um, okay. Pride of Detroit offers some advice to the team’s marketing department (all of whom, no doubt, were hired by Millen): …if they are having trouble selling season tickets thanks to their increase in prices and the failing economy, they ought to come up with a better commercial. And if they can’t do that, well they at least ought to come up with a better catchphrase, because I laugh every time I hear it.Or here’s a novel idea: win a few games. Fans respond to that.
