San Jose – 20 December 2005 – The Detroit fans have made their voices loud and clear. They want Detroit Lions General Manager Matt Millen fired at any cost. Millen has been the GM for the Lions for the past five seasons with minimal, at best, results.
Before this weekend’s losing effort against Cincinnati, Detroit Lions fans showed up to the game wearing orange, the Bengals team color, and even held a march to protest Millen. The fans are fed up with only one playoff win since 1957 and it seems inevitable that Matt Millen will be run out of town, so the question remains, when?
Executives at BetCRIS Sportsbook posted odds on when Detroit Lions General Manager Matt Millen will be fired from the organization:
When will Detroit Lions GM Matt Millen be fired?
– The Superbowl 1 to 4.75
– Between the Superbowl and April 30th 2006 1 to 1
– Between April 30th and Day 1 2006 regular season 3.25 to 1
– Will be back for the 2006 season 6.25 to 1
“Matt Millen has had more than enough of a chance to help the Lions franchise,” said Mickey Richardson, CEO of BetCRIS.com. “Detroit needs to make a lot of drastic changes starting with the GM position.”
