Detroit Lions’ Ticket Surprise

Detroit Lions fans were in for a surprise recently when the team mailed out postseason tickets after the Lions had been eliminated from playoffs.

The tickets weren’t some kind of practical joke, but instead an unfortunate mistake that likely rubbed some fans the wrong way.

The team sent invoices for playoff tickets to season ticketholders last month when the Lions were still tied for first place in the NFC North division, the Detroit Free Press reported.

The Lions’ standings have plummeted in the time since, and after a recent loss to the New York Giants, the team was officially out of the running for the playoffs.

Team officials told the Free Press all money paid for playoff tickets will be credited toward ticket renewals for next season.
