So, after winning the last three games, are onboard with the Lions? Do you think they’re a solid team that could make a push?

I’ll admit, the first two wins of this “streak” were unconvincing to me. The win against the Giants was a solid ‘W’. That was a team that was 7-2 going into that game, not to mention a road win of the Cats.

There’s another big test to see if this team is for real, or the typical ‘Same Old Lions’ this Thursday. Josh Allen and the Bills return to Ford Field for a Turkey Day showdown. Buffalo started out on fire, but have cooled lately. Allen has been fairly average the last few weeks, some say because of a possible injury to his throwing arm.

I will say this, if the Lions can win, or even keep the game interesting, maybe there is something there. Everyone was all fired up during the preseason after watching Hard Knocks. Unfortunately, TV shows don’t win football games.

What say you?

NFL's Most Attractive Fanbases Ranked - Where Are the Lions?

I like to think that we have some pretty attractive people here in Detroit. I mean, just look at the WRIF staff. We’re all friggin’ models. Okay, I’m having fun here, but the folks at have ranked all of the NFL teams by the most to least attractive fan bases, and you’re not going to like the results.

To rank the most attractive fan bases, looked at various factors, including fan behavior.

“Overall, men and women both found the use of vulgar language to be the most unattractive fan behavior, with women feeling the strongest about it,” stated in the study. “While both genders agreed upon the top three most unattractive fan behaviors, engaging in fan traditions proved more contentious. Men were 4.8 percentage points more likely to find this behavior unattractive than women.”

They added, “When observing generational differences, it was apparent that Generation Z was less likely to be turned off by the three behaviors that the other generations found most offensive, i.e., using vulgar language, consuming alcohol, and being confrontational toward opposing fans. On the other hand, younger age groups were more likely to find singing and joining in group cheers unattractive in comparison to their older counterparts.”

So, where are the Lions. It’s not good. Check out the list below, and you’ll see where we land. Meanwhile, the Atlanta Falcons are No. 1. I’ve never been to Atlanta, but according to this study, they have some attractive peeps there.
