Uncertainty about the National Football League’s labor situation has exposed a lingering financial weakness of the Detroit Lions: an estimated $350 million in debt stemming from construction of Ford Field and other borrowing.
The Detroit Lions’ 6-10 record is not as dismal as it seems. They played the majority of the season without Matthew Stafford, their starting signal caller. Despite Stafford’s injuries, the Lions won six games and seven of their losses were decided by one score or less. The future is bright in Detroit.
Zac Snyder got hooked on the Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
