Detroit Lions…Coming Back Strong After a Rough Season
The Detroit Lions got their start in NFL football as the Portsmouth Spartans in 1930. They got off to a good start but were moved to Detroit in 1934 anyway. By 1957, they had won four championships but have been unsuccessful since.
In the 1950s, quarterback Bobby Layne led the Lions to several winning seasons and helped them win three championships. When he was injured at the end of the 1957 season, he was traded to another team. Layne predicted that the Detroit Lions would not have another winning season for 50 years. In the years since the “Bobby Layne Curse” the Lions have had difficulty winning any games and became the only team in NFL history to lose all 16 of their regular season games.
Off the field, the Detroit Lions are very active in the community. The Detroit Lions Charities was founded in 1990. There are causes and charities throughout the state that benefit from the selflessness and kindness of this organization. They are participants in the take a football player to school program, as well as others that help underprivileged and needy youth and families in the area.
Unlike most football teams, the Detroit Lions do not have cheerleaders in their franchise. The owner, Mr. Ford wanted to keep the game family friendly and so decided not to include a squad. He believes that the short outfits and suggestive dancing are not appropriate for younger viewers and that encouraging drunken adult males to come to the games is a good way to encourage drunken fighting. This is not what Mr. Ford believes football should be all about. So, the games at Ford Stadium are more family friendly, without scantily clad women dancing along the sidelines.
In 2002, the Detroit Lions started playing in their brand new stadium. Ford Field cost 500 million dollars to build. There is seating for 65,000 people with 132 suites and 8,600 club seats. Part of the stadium was built around Hudson’s warehouse, which dates back to the 1920’s. In the warehouse part of the stadium there is a seven-story atrium, restaurants, food courts, and office spaces, among other features. The stadium also boasts some of the best sightlines in the league because of the strategic placement of the club seats on the visitor’s side of the stadium.
The Detroit Lions may be the butt of many jokes and wisecracks but they do have their very loyal fans as well. With their beautiful stadium, and the support of their fans, this team is due for a winning season.
