More than 45,000 people have signed a petition calling for the Canadian rock band to be replaced from the nationally televised halftime show.
Nickelback? Step back! Detroit Lions fans are rallying against the Canadian rockers after they were announced as the halftime band for the Thanksgiving game versus our own Green Bay Packers.

The biggest surprise in the undefeated teams is the Detroit Lions.
It’s not too shocking that the Green Bay Packers are one of two undefeated teams in the entire NFL. It’s a little more shocking that the other team is in the NFC North. Even more shocking is that it’s the Detroit Lions. It would be amazing if it came down to the Thanksgiving Day game. But as a true Packers fan, that honestly scares me a little, so I am hoping for a Lions loss a little earlier in the season. Still, it’s the Lions. A team I’ve joked about being my second favorite NFL team because they give the Packers an automatic two wins a year. That joke laughed at me last year, and it has the potential to laugh at me again this year. I am actually happy for those Detroit fans who have waited so long for their team to do something good.
