politicians asking Lions to hire Saleh


Recommended Posts

Seems like everyone is pushing for this, from players to media. He's a pretty obvious choice, being from just outside of Detroit and having started his coaching career at Mich St.

I guess it is a little weird for politicians to talk about a coaching vacancy but they obviously think it will influence voters.

In 1987, it was also "obvious" that the Pacers would draft Indiana G Steve Alford in the 1st round.  Hometown boy staying in his home state, seemed like a no-brainer.

Instead they went with UCLA product Reggie Miller.  Fans were outraged.

Good thing fans don't make these decisions.  Though in the Jets' case under Maccagnan that would have been an improvement.

God I hate politicians with a passion. Maybe Cuomo will chime in on who he thinks the Jets should select. Though Lombardi is dead, and Marriuchi is retired.

If I'm the Lions (or any sports team)  I go 180 degrees away from any Pol. recommendation.  They're TOTALLY clueless, especially in Michigan. 

Why? The pols there have no worse a track record than the Lions ownership. At least reading up on the guy, he has been a successful coach/coordinator elsewhere.

It wouldn't be like hiring a repeat failed coordinator and coach like ... oh, never mind.

I can't root against the Lions: they have had a comparably miserable existence to our own. I actually would love it if they faced off in the Super Bowl in 3-5 years.
