It’s another tough break for Detroit Lions fans.
As if the controversy surrounding wide receiver Titus Young, Sr. wasn’t enough, the not-so-prognosticative minds behind the team’s annual calendar decided it was his mug that should be on the highly collected item’s cover.READ MORE: Michigan Matters: Fighting for Inclusion, Detroit's Place in Civil Rights History
It isn’t over just yet, folks. No, unfortunately the problems with this calendar don’t stop there.
The featured player for the month of January is Aaron Berry — yes, that Aaron Berry, the cornerback who was released in July.
Jahvid Best, who hasn’t played since the 2011 season, and potential cap casualties Kyle Vanden Bosch and Nate Burleson, are also featured in the calendar.
Now, I can’t complain too much because it’s not like they could have filled every month with Calvin Johnson, Matthew Stafford and Ndamukong Suh, but when did this thing hit the press?

Wouldn’t it have been better, as a 2013 calendar, to maybe, I don’t know, give fans something to look forward to, instead of a constant reminder of past problems?
Oh, and I forgot to mention that the calendar also features a 2012 season schedule, along with stats like Super Bowl history.
Last but not least, this is the real icing on the cake — the company that made the calendar is listed as “Perfect Timing, Inc.” And boom goes the dynamite.
