Hey everyone, I just wanted to point out that despite our history of not winning, this forum has more posts than all but two team forums on this site! It constantly amazes me how loyal Detroit Lions fans are after so many disappointing years. Keep it up!

It doesn't really surprise me so much, football fans in general don't jump bandwagons. I'm sure there are teams you like on the side, but for the most part, most fans don't abandon the team they grew up watching for another team.

I think that the lower a team is the more you will see the true fans trying to rally them back into a good spot.
Sadly tho you will have bandwagon fans willing to jump on board only when they do good.

We all know who the real fans are tho.

The Cowboys have 645, Dolphins have 91 and the Vikings have 73.
Titans are tied with us at 62......

But not after this post. 63 baby! That's it, we win!

There are certain cities that live and breathe sports and are diehard supporters of their teams, Detroit is one of those cities. Boston, Phila come to mind too. I have been gone since the 80's but could never imagine rooting for the Bucs or Dolphins that would never happen. Loyal to the end baby Cool
