Why did these Lions superfans get kicked out of Ford Field?

The Lions, Detroit's perennial losers/possibly cursed football team, finally got their first win of the season game against Chicago on Sunday. The team did it without the help of the two superfans pictured above, though. In a highly entertaining video posted to Facebook, the two fans — self-identified as "Superfan" and "Detroit Don" — say they were ejected simply "for standing up and frickin' cheering for defense."

While the possibility of these guys being obnoxious is high, we don't think they should have been kicked out. The Lions clearly need all the help they can get.

Some dirty shit down at FF
