    Detroit fans, your wish appears to have finally come true.

    The Lions have finally removed team president and GM Matt Millen from his post, FOXSports.com has learned, unseating one of the most criticized executives in Detroit sports history.

    Millen was informed of the move Tuesday night during a late-night high-level meeting. Wednesday morning several people within the building confirmed that he had large packing boxes in his office and he made his way around to different employees telling them of the move.

    It is unclear if Millen was fired or removed himself from the equation but the news comes just days after Bill Ford, Jr. publicly stated he would have fired the GM if it was his decision.

    The Lions have started off horribly and the groundswell for Millen's demise has once again been strong. That's nothing new — events like the Millen Man March, an in-game walkout protest, and calls for Millen's firing have been going on for years.

    Maybe now we can begin to win consistently.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    Millen will be releasing the pictures of the Fords snorting coke off of a 12 year old boys ass in the next few days. He's been warning them that he would go public if they fired him. Now he's gonna bring the thunder.:D
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    I do have Michael Turner and Roddy White. Turner has been the best player in fantasy leagues so far.
