Ep: 233 – Lions And Packers Aftermath – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined by Jeff ‘The Riz’ Risdon to discuss the latest Lions game against the Green Bay Packers. The Lions came out spitting, and once the refs got their footing they were able to tilt the playing field to provide the opportunities the Green Bay Packers needed to pull out a last second victory.  There is a ton to unpack from this game, crazy plays, horrific officiating, and a question mark about the league as a whole. We take your calls and talk through these topics and a whole lot more.

Detroit Lions Podcast Demands Change

The talk of the day Tuesday was the epic failure of the officials in the Monday Night Football game. This should never happen to another team. You couldn’t even see the chess match that is coaching strategy. Success of effort on the field – immolated. It was all overshadowed by terrible officiating. A third, supposedly uninvolved party, changed the game. They’ve done so for countless NFL teams. The Lions have had their share of bad calls, but we don’t corner the market.  It’s time to take action.

Our best bet as fans is to engage the players and make this a part of the CBA negotiation. Its where we have a shot at the real money, which is all that matters to the NFL. The players are the only people with power against the NFL – we need to engage them. Players can improve their careers, safety, and bonuses and force the league to change the way officiating is handled. Fans can finally force the owners to provide a product they can believe in.
