While we're sure they had the best of intentions, the NFL messed up when they invited Nickelback to perform at this year's Detroit Lions Thanksgiving game, because pretty much ALL OF DETROIT doesn't want them. Ouch!
Okay, so maybe not the entire city of Detroit, but over 32,000 Lions fans have signed an online petition trying to get Nickelback replaced! Ouch X2!
Here's how the petition reads:
This game is nationally televised, do we really want the rest of the US to associate Detroit with Nickelback? Detroit is home to so many great musicians and they chose Nickelback?!?!?! Does anyone even like Nickelback? Is this some sort of ploy to get people to leave their seats during halftime to spend money on alcoholic beverages and concessions? This is completely unfair to those of us who purchased tickets to the game. At least the people watching at home can mute their TVs. The Lions ought to think about their fans before choosing such an awful band to play at halftime.
It is true that many great people came from Detroit. Guess the NFL may want to rethink their decision…or hire LOTS AND LOTS of security during the halftime show!
