Well, that's where they've hired their FO and coaching "talent" from. But it really goes back to all such teams being owned by wealthy, egotistical, frat-boy ***holes - the kind of guys who are convinced that, because they're wealthy, they're geniuses at everything. That may have changed a bit with the Lions, though. WCF, Jr. at least appears to be trying to hire good people who are mostly outside the "good old boys" network and then stay out of their way. He's made some mistakes, but seems to be attempting to improve.
