Detroit Lions football fans made the make-fun-of-Nickelback-at-no-cost attitude popular in November when the band was announced as the halftime entertainment for the team’s nationally televised Thanksgiving Day game. Football fans took to social media—and a petition signed by 50,000—to lay into the band as not good enough and not Detroit enough. Nickelback played the halftime show anyway and is now having a few words to say to haters.
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.
