lionssuckThe Detroit Lions truly suck.  The Oakland Raiders are a little bit better, but still are a total basement dweller of a team as well.  So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this weekend’s upcoming Lions / Redskins and Raiders / Denver games are going to be blacked out on local Detroit and Oakland television because neither team could sell their home stadiums out in time.  While the Raiders are playing a division game against the Broncos, the game is somewhat close to being sold out.  The Lions, on the other hand, had over 10,000 tickets still available for purchase as of yesterday, meaning they are going to be playing at a very mellow Ford Field on Sunday.  I wish both teams good luck over the weekend; no one will be watching
