Detroit Lions fans made their feelings about owner Sheila Ford Hamp clear Sunday.
Calvin Johnson’s hall of fame ring ceremony was held during halftime of the Ravens/Lions game, and fans booed the living hell out of Sheila Ford Hamp when she stepped up to the mic. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Johnson and the Lions have been beefing ever since he retired. The Lions required him to repay a portion of his signing bonus when he hung up his cleats, which is very rare for NFL stars to be asked to do.
Johnson has made it clear that until he gets his money back, he’s not interested in smoothing things over with the Lions.
That’s why I was honestly surprised that he even showed up today. Of course, I’m sure he did it for the fans and his former teammates, but I was still surprised given the feud.
The Ford family just got booed heavily during the Calvin Johnson ceremony at halftime.
Calvin Johnson, on the other hand, getting massive cheers.
Well done, Lions. Hope you spent that $1.6 million in good health.

The Lions need to give Johnson his money and just move on. It’s not hard to figure out. The man put his body on the line every single game for Detroit until he couldn’t do it anymore.
The idea that he should have had to pay back one penny is laughable.

Give the man his money back and give it to him right now! The Lions could find $1.6 million behind a couch if they wanted to. It’s time to do the right thing!
