16 posts in this topic

Matt Millen has been fired as GM of the Detroit Lions. Lions fans can now breath easier and hope for a decent draft next April for a change.

yeah it's bad for us. They have a very talented offense, but can't use it. They need to start paying attention to that defense and lay off the 1st round WR's

So Millen got fired, hopefully Glen Taylor see's this and shows McHale the door also.

Ding Ding Ding! We have a winner!

You are correct. If they can cut him loose, McHale could be next!

*****

Millen didn't have any success and that's what the NFL is all about. The decisions he made where popular...who to bring in, who to draft, etc. etc. But in the end nothing panned out. He never stuck to a plan for how he or his coaches wanted to mold a team. He needs a little time off. Would you want your front office hiring him?

Apparently he didn't have the goods on the boss like McFale does.

Are you sure he didn't have the goods on the Ford's......I mean he did lead them for 7+ years and never went to the playoffs and had a 31-84 record while GM.......after a while what ever they have on you just don't matter!!!

    • Where is the part where I say I am OK with it?
    • The CWD 'outbreak' in the 4 counties in the NW part of Wisconsin I believe is one case in the NW part of Barron County, or some where close to where those counties all meet.  All counties within X miles (40 miles?) of a positive result are considered CWD counties.  For the year or two after the found positive in that area the MN DNR did test deer in the neighboring MN area(s.)  I was hunting in both Burnett County, WI and east of Hinckley, MN in the year the positive test was found.  It's been awhile, the numbers might be off, but that was generally what happened.   How much money do you want our DNR to spend on so few positive results so far away?
    • We should never have Koivu on the ice in a 3 on 3 OT...Wait, he scored last night. He is phenomenal in OT, finishes with the same move Parise tried moments before him and failed. WTG Koivu! Insert half sarcastic, half praise here... Needed the win, got it. Mcdavid held in check.   Parise is the highest paid 4th line player. There is still something wrong with him. His stride hasn't looked right in over a year. Hope he just stays off the ice if he isn't going to get it together.
    • Looks like after today we'll be making some of the hard stuff!!! Here in the metro anyways
    • Waiting on a reply from the DNR but should be soon
    • They are all the same as the other hook models just a different screen. The Hook is just a re-branded Elite Chrip.
    • Appeared to be a nice product. I was not impressed with the sales guy or who ever he was at the Blane show. I asked if they sell the LED extrusion they had running along both sides of the trailer and he said its their own design I can get them if I buy a trailer bla bla bla... Once I stepped away a salesman from Coates RV said that he can get the extrusion for me being its nothing special! I have little time for people that lie to me, if he didn't know a better answer is no we don't sell to the public or i don't know.
    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.
