  1. 2018 NFL Draft Thread

    I've seen Taven Bryan mocked to us quite a bit recently. Is D'Andre Payne really markedly better than Bryan?
  2. 2018 NFL Draft Thread

    I'm warming up more and more to the idea of taking Darrius Guice in the first round.
  3. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    Sean Hannity, Holy Christ! Hopefully the jury is fair & balanced.

    You know this whole Syrian conflict is destined to end well with a bold and declarative statement like that because it worked so well for the last guy who did it . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
  5. What are some of your fondest Same Old Lions moments?

    Marty taking the wind and Bobby Ross running Barry Sanders out of town were my two favorites. I was only 14 or 15 at the time when Mornhinweg decided to take the wind in overtime. Even as a kid I knew the rules well enough that what he had just done was a colossal blunder. I still remember sitting there in stunned silence and disbelief thinking how a coach could make a mistake that big.
  6. What are some of your fondest Same Old Lions moments?

    For years a buddy and I have had the idea of starting the SOL Museum of Futility. It would be complete with interactive displays, videos and stories of SOL moments throughout time. Each decade since the Bobby Layne trade would have its own section. Museum visitors could ready stories about Bobby Ross running Barry out of town, Millen's decision to draft Charles Rogers after Rogers stated he didn't want to play here, Titus Young sucker punching Louis Delmas, and more. They could watch video clips of Schwartz throwing the challenge flag, Marty taking the wind against Chicago and on. If had a couple million to pay a usage rights fee and we could get the rights from the Detroit Lions, NFL and NFLPA we think the museum would make a killing.
  7. 2018 Michigan Gubernatorial Race

    So Sunday is the nominating convention for the Michigan Democratic Party at Cobo Hall. Attendees will have the chance to nominate Democratic candidates for Attorney General (Dana Nessel or Pat Miles) and Secretary of State (Jocelyn Benson). It will be an interesting and (likely) contentious convention given the battle between Dana Nessel and Pat Miles for Attorney General. Nessel is a former prosecuting attorney from Wayne County. She was also a civil defense lawyer who helped to take the marriage equality case to the Supreme Court for that LGBT couple from Royal Oak. Pat Miles was a former US Prosecuting Attorney in the Western District Court in Michigan. He was also a centrist Democrat who ran for Congress in 2010 against Justin Amash. When Miles ran, many of the Republican insiders openly supported him over Amash. Most all of the parties progressives, liberals and LGBTQ activists, as well as the MEA and a number of women's groups are backing Nessel. She also has the support of Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy. Most of the rest of the big labor unions, notably AFL-CIO and UAW, as well as Barbara McQuade and Dennis Archer are with Miles. My sense tells me that before the UAW endorsed, Nessel had a large lead over Miles. However, labor, specifically the UAW, has a large influence within the MDP. They will pay their members to show up and vote for Miles. It is going to be a raucous battle between progressives plus women's groups and organized labor for the AG slot. Whoever's camp can bring the most delegates to vote at the MDP Convention will win. I will be there and plan on support Dana Nessel myself as Miles has a number of troubling flip-flops on issues like women's choice, marriage equality, the death penalty, medical and recreational marijuana.

    Just five short years ago this guy wanted to be Vice President and now he's bowing out because of this? What a snowflake!
  9. Ken Holland Expected to Return With or Without a Contract

    You don't have the talent in your farm system to make this happen Kenny.
  10. Ken Holland Expected to Return With or Without a Contract

    97.1 just reported that Blashill is officially coming back.
  11. Ken Holland Expected to Return With or Without a Contract

    Those aren't talking points, those are the pillars with which you build a successful franchise on.
  12. Ken Holland Expected to Return With or Without a Contract

    Rebuilds take 8 to 10 years. Kids aren't the answer. This is a men's league. We like our team. Less can be more exciting. If you expect cups you're in the wrong league.
  13. Malik Rose over Sam Hinkie?
  14. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    The fire just got a helluva lot hotter now. Payoffs, bribes, hush money . . . We'll know a whole lot more in a couple weeks/months once the FBI processes this and it gets leaked.
  15. Ken Holland Expected to Return With or Without a Contract

    Don't forget Joe Thornton. This is Kenny's entire off-season plan though, to a Teeeeeee.
