Lions Coach Fired - FINALLY!

| Filed under: Zportz

ap0812280212832.jpg

As we mentioned yesterday, the Detroit Lions have made NFL history by becoming the first team with a record low of 0-16.

Lions coach Rod Marinelli took some time to talk about the embarrassing incident after the game.

Marinelli was asked on Sunday after the game what his next step might be if he were able to keep his job, to which he responded, "Let me get through step one first."

Well, we guess he won't have to worry about the next step.

Just as the team has lost, coach Marinelli has lost his job.

The Lions have finally fired their loser coach.

Good!

But…..

We can't put all the blame on Marinelli.

The team majorly sucked too!

So who's getting kicked off the team?

    Even when the Lions had good players, such as Barry Sanders, for example, they sucked ass. The reason is the owner, William Clay Ford. He can fire as many people and players as he wants…the proof is in his record as the franchise owner. He is the one and only commonality for every single suckass season.

    Yea they all are to blame for their craptasticness



  11. 11

    Your comments don't carry a lot of weight on this sport, do they, Perez . . . it's the NFL, not figure skating!

    Mario, do you even know what NFL stands for? NO FAG LEAGUE!

    They need to start making these assholes actually earn the insane amounts of money they make. It's fucking gross they make that money and they just toss a ball around. Pfft….



  18. 18

    Being from the D, I can assure you, the fault does not lie with the coach. Lions' football has sucked since 1954. When a franchise is that bad for that long it's time to look at the owner, not the staff. Oh yeah, and despite being one of the worst teams ever, the Lions are one of the top 5 money making teams in the NFL..yeah, try to figure that one out.

    Re: _Alice_ – So true, Alice. I luv the Raiders, have for 20+ unsatisfying years, but damn, the NFL needs to make some changes. So does the NBA for that matter. You look around the world today, see poeple losing their jobs, homes, can't pay their bills, can't feed their kids, and then you see some fool sign a $45 million dollar contract to play BALL. Fuck. It's just stupid - Raiders included. :(

    Seriously, Ive been a LIONS fan or hater since I was 3. The real problem with the LIONS is the owners–THE FORDS they can't run an auto company, and they sure as heck cant run a football team. Maybe if Illitch bought the team and turned it around like the WINGS or what they are trying to do with the TIGERS maybe they might start winning a game or two a year!

    Re: Long Dong Connery – May I say what a pleasure it is for Mistress to be in the same room as HRH Sir Long Dong Connery. I have been a fan for a long time you gorgeous hunk of manflesh.
    You're the only one I'd leave my hunky hubby for . . . LOL

    Re: Charmer – Yeah, it's embarrassing. Sports figures aren't even great role models anymore. They get arrested constantly, fuck whores constantly, and shove shit up their noses or stick shit in their veins, and then have a million babies with a million baby mamas. And they get rewarded for that shit? Fucking bullshit.

    It seriously took him 16 games to get the sack?

    This is why our football is better. Losing one match means your job is on the rocks, two means you're walking a fine line, 3 losses means you really are pushing it and 4 means out. Put it this way, a manager who loses all the matches in a season will be head hunted by the fans before the club takes notice.

    Speaking of football and seeing as you seem to have a growing interest in the 'soccer'. Perez, you surely cannot have not noticed one of the good looking footballers of the Premier League got arrested and charged with assault after brawling in a nightclub. Look it up, the story is hilarious. The DJ apparently wouldn't let him play Phil Collins and Coldplay tracks so he hit out.



  36. 36

    you should leave football alone and only comment on things you are familiar with … like gayness



  37. 37

    Re: harrybalsac – HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!



  38. 38

    Re: _Alice_ – Yep, and you forgot the most irritating thing sports "stars" do . . . get a hang nail, or a bruise, or a scratch, and have to take months off - paid, of course - for rehab therapy! It's -46 degrees this a.m. and I'm at my office, dutifully performing my second-to-the-last day of work before my lay-off on 01-01. I'd like to see any one of those "stars" do ANYTHING at -46!! :)



  39. 39

    honestly, 1. dont comment about football - do you even watch it let alone know anything about it other than tom brady and tony romo because of their celeb girlfriends? 2. please respect a man that is just trying to do his job. everyone understands that he is unsuccessful, but for someone like YOU (who devotes their own life concentrating on the lives of the rich and famous) to call him a loser is definitely uncalled for. respect that he is a coach - he is not trying to be some celeb. give the poor guy, and his family who i am sure is has already gone through so much this season a break.

    Re: Mistress – Well actually…..would Miss Money Penny be able to join in????



  41. 41

    perez…gay men do NOT care about football in that way. the logistics and such don't matter dickhead only what the boys look like in the locker room! you are a fake fag!



  42. 42

    Re: Charmer – LOL…they wouldn't. Bunch of wussies;)



  43. 43

    Re: _Alice_ – I have some fusseballs for you to play with….. :o )



  44. 44

    Perez… if you want to talk sports, talk about synchronized swimming, something you might actually know about.



  45. 45

    Re: _Alice_ – My humblest apologies Alice - had I known I certainly would have asked your permission first, and then offered an invitation to join. Threesome - definitely - woo hoo.



  46. 46

    Re: Long Dong Connery – Miss MoneyPenny can hold the camera if Alice is going to be there too. LOL



  47. 47

    This happened SUNDAY NIGHT!

    AFTER THE GAME!

    AND IT WAS PLANNED A WHILE AGO, THEY JUST WANTED TO MAKE HIM FEEL GOOD ABOUT HIMSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!



  48. 48

    no offense but who are you to say they all suck? i bet you know nothing about football and im actually embarrassed you had the balls to comment on this topic…



  49. 49

    Re: _Alice_ – They do not get rewarded for what type of person they are. Do you think your job should judge you when you aren't at work?

    Re: Charmer – There were a lot of teams playing this past weekend when the weather was that cold. Actually I think the Green Bay vs. Detroit game was around -46.

    Re: Long Dong Connery – Yaa gotta love the Knights Joe Kools is cool

    I don't think it was so much the coach's fault as it was the team. He put the plays out, but it was up to the team to follow them through. And from what I seen, they didn't do it. They always cholked up at the end. There were many many times the team could have won but they didn't. The team needed to be fired or the very least send them back to intense training camp so that they could be decent again.



  53. 53

    Please….stick to celeb gossip and bad mouthing people who are against gay marriage.



  54. 54

    when will the players ever take the blame for being a sucky team…after all these coaches getting fired on the lions, wouldn't you start thinking maybe its the players!!! damn, I wouldn't want that thankless job for nothing!!!
