No, and in fact that's the problem. The games *do* sell out, and the Ford Family runs the team like it's a business. It is a business, so as long as fans continue to fill the seats even with losing teams, why should they change? Is it any wonder why the Lions won 4 championships before the Fords bought the team, and none since?
On the brighter side, William Clay Ford is getting on in years, and his kid cares a lot more about winning. The changes towards where the team is going took awhile, but we now have most of the peices to win.
