    Default So the whole Lions Thanksgiving Tradition? How do you feel about it?

    Some people are traditionalists and say "Keep the Lions on Thanksgiving".

    Me I hate that for most of my life I am watching a 2-8 to 4-6 team play and told, "its tradition".

    I think Thanksgiving games should rotate with different teams every year.

    So what do you think?

    Keep the Lions. NFL rules state that every team has to be on at least one nationally televised game every year. This is the Lions game. They took the game way back when... when no other team wanted it. They actually had a player (Chuck Hughes) die on the field (at the old Tiger stadium) in the 1971 Thanksgiving day game. If every team wants to play on Thanksgiving so badly, the league should add more games. My guess is that most players hate playing on Thanksgiving! JMO.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all in the Pittsburgh Sports Tavern!!!!

    Keep it as is: What could be better than two helpings of turkey?
