Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Detroit Lions are a professional American football team based in Detroit, Michigan. They are members of the North Division of the National Football Conference in the National Football League, and play their home games at Ford Field in downtown Detroit. Originally based in Portsmouth, Ohio and called the Portsmouth Spartans, the team began play in 1929 as an independent professional team, one of many such teams in the Ohio and Scioto River valleys. For the 1930 season, the Spartans formally joined the NFL as the other area independents folded because of the Great Depression. Despite success within the NFL, they could not survive in Portsmouth, then the NFL's smallest city. The team was purchased and moved to Detroit for the 1934 season. The 2000 Detroit Lions season was the team's 71st season in the National Football League. The Lions' home attendance was 606,716 while their attendance on the road was 523,383 for a total attendance of 1,130,099. Bobby Ross resigned after the ninth game of the season and was replaced by Gary Moeller.show more
