Lions’ wide receiver Nate Burleson’s comments about Detroit are not appreciated at face value. He said of the Lions’ lockout workouts to a Seattle television station: “Seeing about 35 guys there working out — this time of year, in Detroit is not the most desirable place, so you got guys flying in, paying for their own hotel, paying for rental cars — so that just kind of shows the dedication and really the direction of our team right now.”

    Personally I do not see a problem with what he said at all. He is merely saying they are doing everything themselves to show team unity and try to win something for a city, which we all know is down trodden, that has not won a damn thing in football professionally for 50+ years.

    The truth hurts. Detroit is not desirable!! Detroit needs help and a complete attitude re make. I did not take what he said in the wrong tone. I clearly understand what he was saying and it was something positive to show effort to a city that has nothing!!!

    He said “This time of year”, which probably had more to do with the March weather than anything about the city.
