Aside from all that, I kind of have an outside affinity for the Lions. Jim Schwartz being a baby doesn't make me like the Lions less, just Jim Schwartz. I like a lot of the players on that team, it's not their fault their coach overreacted. The Lions team plays tough, nasty football. If our team had a "dirty" label, none of us would care.
On top of all this, anyone who is 49ers fan should be rooting for Detroit to win this game, because Green Bay losing would put us in 1st place in the NFC.
Good call, OTC. Rooting for the Packers just isn't an option. So, Jim Schwartz was a baby about "the handshake". Their fans could use a nice boost on Thanksgiving for a change.........................and it would make us the #1 seed if we win as well.
The biggest point I'd like to continue to point out is the bolded. A lot of people say the same thing about us -- that we're arrogant fans. Newsflash -- every fanbase is going to have a lot of arrogant fans when they're doing well. You didn't hear a peep from them when they sucked, and rightfully so. That means they're really not that arrogant.
On the other hand, Cowboys fans think their team is hot you-know-what no matter how TERRIBLE they are. THAT is true arrogance and just another reason to LOATHE the Cowboys above all others. But the Lions? Come on. No one talked about them being "arrogant" until this year and the handshake....
