As a quick introduction: This Forum goes back to the Detroit Free Press days when they hosted it using the WorldCrossing software. Many of the people here have been around since the mid-nineties.

When the Freep closed up shop on us, we moved to a free hosted forum on WorldCrossing. They went to a pay-to-play model, so we migrated to our own domain.

This is a great community, the best source of Lions info and talk on the internet. If a Lions story breaks, no matter how small and insignificant, you'll find it here, and you'll find it hashed over until its dead, and then some.

We get together every year for the Annual Forum Game and tailgate party, an event that draws Forumites from all over the country, and a few times from overseas.

So drop a post here and introduce yourself. Let us know how you found us, where you're from, etc. Give us a little history on your life as a Lions Fan. We're not just a forum, we're a support group!

It never dawned on me until I read Marko's post that I may actually have to try and prove I've been a Lions fan and not just jumping on the bandwagon...that's a new concept.

May as well use this opportunity to introduce myself as well. I'm a native Montanan who's been living in Japan for the past seven years teaching English. My parents moved to Mt. Clemens about 13 years ago, but I've been a Lions fan since I started watching football in grade school.

Like I said in the previous post, I don't consider myself an expert, but I really enjoy reading all the comments and insights that everyone has on these boards.

Thanks guys, and I noticed that about "Man" was well. I think his Location said Helena. I've been lurking around here for awhile now, but I never felt I had anything to contribute.

Welcome LFIJ. I don't believe that you have to prove not to be a bandwagon Lion fan. Currently all you have to do is say you're a fan and people will accept that bandwagon is not the case.

Welcome LFIJ. I have a step-daughter in Japan, Yokuska. Yup, joined the Navy to see the world. I, too, have been there.

Of course you have something to contribute, can't be any worse than some of us.

I will also add, my contributions have been minimal however, that does not mean I have an opinion.

kochirakoso DL, yoroshiku onegaishimasu.

Don't worry though, I won't make it a habit of speaking Japanese on the forums.

Hey. TK here.

I would've registered sooner, but registration was closed. I had some spicy stuff about Millen and everything, but no. Now that stays with me. Consider yourselves punished.

Anyway, sup?
