Metro Detroit: Newsmakers Oct 24, 2008




The Oakland Press:

Someone with a good sense of humor must be in charge of local affiliate Fox 2's programming department. With the Lions blacked out on television this Sunday for the first time since Ford Field opened in 2002, the station is filling two hours of airtime (1-3 p.m.) with the movie "Best Laid Plans." The flick has nothing to do with the Lions of course -- it's about a drug heist gone wrong, and two half-hour episodes of "Cops" follow -- but it's a comical choice as 0-6 Detroit looks for its first win against the 5-2 Redskins. About 5,000 tickets still remained as of Thursday's 1 p.m. deadline, meaning the Lions could play in front of their first (official, at least) non-sellout since the second-to-last game at the Pontiac Silverdome seven years ago. That's a span of 51 straight regular-season home games, the last 50 at Ford Field... Ford Field first: Lions blacked out (Fri, 10/24)
