Detroit Lions fans are trying to take their team back.
After a 1-6 start to the 2015 season, one fed-up Lions fan decided he had seen enough and made a GoFundMe account to buy the team. He's asking for $1 billion in order to buy the NFL franchise, which has caused so much sorrow for the Detroit faithful over the years.
Here's an excerpt from the description on the Lions fan's GoFundMe page:
If the fundraiser falls short of its lofty goal, the account claims the money will be donated to a charity. At the time of this publication, nearly $2,000 had been raised. That pales in comparison to the 7,100 total shares the fan's entertaining plea had on social media at the same time.
