By now, you have almost certainly seen the video.
Back in September, former Detroit Lions great Calvin Johnson was back at Ford Field for his Hall of Fame Ring Ceremony. And though Calvin did receive his ring, the biggest takeaway from the ceremony came from when the fans at Ford booed Lions owner Sheila Ford Hamp mercilessly as she tried to introduce him.
On Friday, Sheila spoke to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press and he said that she totally understands the booing.
“Obviously, no one likes to be booed, but I totally understand it,” Hamp told the Free Press on Friday. “Totally understand it. Understand the frustration all the years. I think it was a lot of things involved in that booing, so as I say no one likes it, but I got it. Totally got it. And I’m as frustrated as the fans are and I appreciate their sentiment and hopefully what we’re trying to do here will turn to cheers one day.”
Nation, would you have booed Sheila if you were at Ford Field?
