[NFL] The rebuild, the desperation, and the tale of the worst sports organization on the North American continent - A Detroit Lions story

#Background

The NFL is the professional organization for gridiron football in the United States, and one of the largest sporting organizations on the planet. Boasting a yearly revenue of over $16 billion, putting it on par not just with major corporations, but with major industries. And of course it's managed by petty, tiny babies. 31 of the 32 teams are owned by rich individuals who did not make their money through football.

#Team History

The year is 1957. The place, Detroit. A booming city, Detroit is a place to be. American factories pump out American cars, the best in the world. Some of them even get seven miles to the gallon. Here, at the center of American automotive manufacturing, sits the best team in football - the Detroit Lions. Having gone 8-4 in the regular season, they defeated the San Francisco 49ers to advance to the Superbowl NFL Championship (Superbowls didn't start until the NFL-AFL merger in '66), then the Cleveland Browns in the Championship, they became the ultimate winners of the National Football League. Although not the American Football League - the NFL-AFL merger would happen in 1966, still many years in the future.

For a Detroit fan, the future looked bright. Until a minor scandal - okay, no, a major scandal happened. The players were betting on games. Amidst the controversy and fines came an angel of salvation - William Clay Ford. Heir to the Ford Family fortunes, he purchased full ownership of the Detroit Lions in 1963 for the sum of $5.4 million.

A rich owner who could afford to pay coaches and staff, no need to scrap for dollars on ticket sales, and the NFL-AFL merger sending the popularity of football soaring. Yes, going in to the 60s, the Detroit Lions were an easy bet. Ford would lead them.

#The Playoffs, an interlude

Playoffs in professional sports is interesting. They are constantly expanding - now more baseball teams will make the playoffs than miss them, and have fluctuated in size. But usually it's somewhere between 1/4 and 1/2 of the teams in a sport will make the playoffs. There they will play elimination brackets until there's a championship between two teams for the glory.

There have been long championship droughts. The longest in baseballs is the Seattle Mariners, who after being founded in 1977 have never made the world series, only occasionally venturing deep into the playoffs. They are awful. In the NBA, it is the LA Clippers. Founded 50 years ago, they have never made i

Why haven't Asian drivers been as successful as their counterparts from the other continents?

Most F1 champions and race winners have been obviously from Europe, but both Americas (North and South) and Oceania are not that far behind. Heck, even Africa has a World Drivers' Champion (Jody Scheckter). So why, for all intents and purposes, can't Asians win F1 races, let alone titles? (Especially the Japanese, even though they have had 3 third-place finishes and 2 fastest laps. Here's hoping Yuki Tsunoda breaks the duck this upcoming season.)
