You can tell how bad a sports teams is doing, how desperate it is by the tactics it resorts to. Especially when those tactics are usually reserved for fake women’s “sports” no-one cares about.
How low has the 2-11 NFL Detroit Lions team sunk? Well, the team is in such desperate straits that it’s gone to using a WNBA “marketing technique”: Free Tickets.
The 400-500 people who didn’t renew their season tickets are getting free ticket’s for Sunday’s Lions v. Arizona Cardinals game at Taxpayer Field a/k/a Ford Field. Talk about desperate.
I’m taking bets on whether or not the Lions free tickets will have the same success as WNBA tickets. As in, not much. No-one wants to pay $40 to park, a ton more to eat snacks, and the gas money to drive downtown . . . to watch an utter loser.
