Hi everyone. Just wanted to drop a line that I’ve decided to stop supporting the NFL for at least the rest of this season, and maybe beyond. I’ve been slowly unfollowing all NFL related stuff, that will include The Den.
There are many, many reasons for this. The foremost is that there is no accountability by the League as it relates to medical issues, racism, competition, and most certainly officiating. The social concerns about the game are harder to ignore when the officiating during the game is so consistently bad.
With the state of the game, I’ve found it not to be a healthy pastime for me personally. The emotional roller coasters are just exacerbated by how bad the product is.
I still love the Lions and always will, but they are part of this larger, broken system. One of the only ways I have agency in making this situation better, is to take my money and my time elsewhere.
I’ll check back for the next day then I’ll turn into a ghost like so many others that have spent so much time here that we no longer hear from.
