Lions fans express frustration with Suh’s expected departure
It hasn’t yet reached Matt Millen levels (heaven forbid), but the frustration of Detroit Lions fans is out of control this week with the expected departure of free agent Ndamukong Suh.
As if those "$UH" billboards weren’t enough, a Michigan company is now selling T-shirts with "FAIL" printed on the front next to the faces of Lions general manager Martin Mayhew and president Tom Lewand.
One fan buried his Suh jersey in the snow.
Another lit his jersey on fire.

And then there’s former Lion Lawrence Jackson, who has gone from reserve defensive end to All-Pro troll on Twitter.
Jackson sent out a series of tweets in recent days attacking both Mayhew and Lewand, along with quarterback Matthew Stafford.
He accused the front office of "bad money management," which ultimately led to Suh’s departure.
"The Lions are taking yall money and fanmanship for granted," Jackson wrote.
He added of Stafford: "I did not see the work ethic that other QB’s put in."
So much anger — from fans to former players — being thrown at the Lions these days.
Oh, by the way, they won 11 games and went to the playoffs last season.
