The Majors Detroit:
Idonije… you scamp you! Tipping off the Lions on your former team’s defensive calls.
According to ESPN Chicago’s Michael C.

On top of that Bush was also averaging 7.7 yards per carry which is pretty damn good while the offensive line prevented the Bears from getting to Stafford basically the entire game. So it certainly wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility that the Lions in the week leading up to Sunday’s game were picking Idonije’s brain on what certain defensive schemes would look like....

Okay, so it wasn’t really a “throw” but you get the point. It was weird, but it counted for seven regardless.

The dirty plays take attention away from the fact that Ndamukong Suh is on the short list of best defensive lineman in the league.

This is just wrong. It's wrong that someone threw something onto the field during the game. Come on! What are we? Soccer fans overseas?
It's also wrong that someone wasted a really expensive beer by throwing it at someone.
Let's be real here. A ticket low enough to actually be able to do that is pretty expensive. Maybe the person was...
