    Pretty interesting case of fan dedictation, which I hadn't even heard about until this morning. A Lions fan, coincidentally named Shawn Payton, phoned in a bomb threat to try to stop the Lions-Saints game when he team was losing.

    I can't tell if this is something to laugh at or be frightened over. He's very sorry he did it and, obviously, scared ****less that now he's going to be doing some serious time.

    ā€œHi, I want you to relay a message to the sideline. If your stupid Southern team keeps winning, there will be reperā€¦severe consequences. OK?ā€ Shawn Payton said in the second call, which law enforcement personnel recorded after being alerted to the first call.

    +1. The fear and panic he could have created is pretty serious. Even with no bomb, that could have led to injuries.

    I think every single team should have bomb sniffing dogs on their payrolls (if they don't already). A lunatic with a gun in a crowded place could kill a couple people. A lunatic with a bomb could kill a couple hundred.
