You know it’s bad when one of the worst football teams in history doesn’t even want you.

Detroit Lions fans finally have something to cheer about after years of being the laughing stock of the NFL. Unfortunately, they are not cheering about the halftime entertainment at this year’s Thanksgiving game. Fans have started a petition to have Nickelback removed as the halftime act for this year’s game:

“This game is nationally televised, do we really want the rest of the US to associate Detroit with Nickelback? Detroit is home to so many great musicians and they chose Nickelback?!?!?! Does anyone even like Nickelback? Is this some sort of ploy to get people to leave their seats during halftime to spend money on alcoholic beverages and concessions? This is completely unfair to those of us who purchased tickets to the game. At least the people watching at home can mute their TVs. The Lions ought to think about their fans before choosing such an awful band to play at halftime.”
