    This is really a make or break season for Patricia, Quinn, Stafford, and the rest of the Lions. If the season turns into the disaster that so many seem to be predicting (6-10 or worse) then I don't...

    I don't think you're going to see too many national figures associating themselves with the dominant labor union in our area anytime soon. It's become rather politically toxic, for obvious reasons. ...
