Could I have an order of clothes with those fries? Coach Cullen of Detroit Lions

September 11, 2006

Whoa, this was just a little too good to pass up. Seems Lions’ assistant coach Joe Cullen is a little forgetful–or has some problems considerably worse. He ordered a burger and fries from a driveup window–completely naked. Here’s the story via Fox.

That was on Aug 24, then on Sept 1 he got arrested for drunk driving. His apology is, well a little too tame to be believable. I swear there must be a website somewhere that is called and you just pick the one you want. Here’s what the coach had to say:

‘I would like to
apologize to the Detroit Lions organization, our fans, my family and friends
for any embarrassment these incidents have caused. These incidents represent
a mistake in judgment on my part. I deeply regret them and have learned a
valuable lesson. It won’t happen again.'”

Let’s see, these statements came in written form through the team. Big problem for the Lions’ organization. Second: “a mistake in judgment.” No, ordering the burger instead of a salad is a mistake in judgment. Going through the drivein stark naked is considerably more serious than that. Third: “It won’t happen again?” I would guess not, unless he finds a way to escape from the institution.

In the meantime Detroit Lions are saying this is a serious matter and he is getting treatment. OK, but how do they really feel?

    I thought that this was a great example of poor PR; his statements seems generic and insincere. If nothing else, funny story!

    who the hell is joe cullen? is he really that important to try and keep him around after doing something so ridiculous and irresponsible? i thought this new coach was supposed to be a no nonsense kind of guy. why not boot his behind out the door like they did charles rogers? are they waiting for him to get caught with drugs before that happens? once again we found that our new leader is leaderless………………………………

    Absolutely agree with what you stated. Your explanation was certainly the simplest to comprehend. I tell you, I constantly get irked when folks discuss stuff that they obviously have no clue about. You managed to hit the nail right on the head and rolled out everything clearly. Hopefully, other people can take a cue. Will likely be back for additional. Keep writing
