The Resume

    (1934- )
    Located in Detroit, Michigan
    Four NFL championships (1935, 1952, 1953, 1957)
    No Super Bowl championships
    Five retired numbers: Dutch Clark's #7, Lem Barney, Billy Sims's and Barry Sanders's #20, Bobby Layne's #22, Doak Walker's #37, Joe Schmidt's #56 and Chuck Hughes's #85

Why they might be annoying:

    They have yet to play in a Super Bowl.
    Barry Sanders blames their ownership on his early retirement.
    They've only won 10 games in the past three seasons (2001-03)
    They set an NFL record by consecutively losing the most road games, 24, that they set between the 2002 and 2003 seasons.
    President and General Manager Matt Millen used a derogatory term for homosexuals when talking about wide receiver Johnnie Morton, who Millen cut two years before (2003).
    After apologizing, Lions owner William Clay Ford decided that his apology was sincere and decided to keep him as the teams President and GM.

Why they might not be annoying:

    Although never having played in a Super Bowl, their former stadium, the Silverdome, has housed one.
    Barry Sanders spent his entire career with them.
    They usually play the Green Bay Packers every Thanksgiving.
