Nothing like sending your fans tickets they've purchased in advance of your hope at making the NFL playoffs….the day after you are eliminated from them.
That's exactly what the masters of timing in the Detroit Lions ticketing department did Monday.
It appears the team decided to start selling playoff tickets when they were 7-5 and leading the NFC North.
The problem, the Lions have lost their last three games, falling to 7-8 and after Sunday's ugly loss to the New York Giants, saw their post season hopes disappear.
Reportedly the team is crediting ticket holders towards their 2014 season tickets. Of course they are making the assumption that the same ticket holds will actually purchase 2014 season tickets. The team later added that those who don't renew will get refunds.
