Top ways to tell that you are a true Detroit Lions fan.

I love my Detroit Lions, ask any member of my family or circle of friends and they will all tell you that the Lions are my team. Regardless of what people say or the criticisms I get, doesn’t change my allegiance one bit, with that I have put together the top ways to tell if you are a true Honolulu blue warrior.

Top reason number one: This is one of the worst ones out of all of them, you have friends who jump ship and became Green Bay Packer fans. This is the worst because not only are they wishy washy fans but the excuse they always give is “I want to root for a winning team” well heck man, if that’s the case I feel bad for any team you root for because once they start to suck you’ll jump ship again.

Top reason number two: Bandwagon fans, yeah Detroit Lions get them too. I remember the first time in my life when we made the playoffs and all these bandwagon fans came flooding out of nowhere. It was the worst! Because I remember when we went 0-16 and a lot of them jumped over to Green Bay, I am always like “where the heck were you? I watched every single game to the last minute. Last I checked you traded in your gear for a cheese head.” Don’t come rushing back once the team is good and act like you never left, have accountability and live up to the fact that you ditched. It reminds me of when Notre Dame went to the national championship game, I was looking around and was like “hey since when were you catholic??”

Top reason number three: You are happy to be a playoff team and are not greedy. What I mean by this is that while you would love a Superbowl you know that something like that takes time and you have hope that someday it could happen but for now you are happy that we have a team with a winning record and happy that we have made the playoffs twice out of three years, it is without a doubt a good step in the right direction and if we continue to have consistency then patience will payoff someday.

Top reason number four: You don’t care that the NFL and everyone in general disrespect the Detroit Lions. True Lions fans at this point just don’t care, we have accepted that Green Bay is the NFL’s favorite team, we have accepted the fact that it normally is the world vs Detroit in every game. We don’t care anymore, it reminds of the Detroit Piston winning those titles. Both teams that one titles were not favored, they did not get the same treatment as other teams in the league but yet both those teams did not care and through pure will got the job done. I love the Bad Boys Pistons teams when they took it to the L.A Lakers, that in my personal opinion is Detroit the attitude of we are sick of your bias, we don’t care anymore and we will win.

These are only a few reasons but I felt they were good indicators to tell that you are true hardcore Detroit Lions fans, being a fan and loving this team isn’t for the faint of heart but we wouldn’t have it any other way...well would be nice to win by a blowout here and there but hey it is what it is.
