Keep Nickelback as the halftime act at this years Thanksgiving game

I'll be honest with you folks, I don't like Nickleback as much as the next person, but it doesn't mean I want them to stop performing on the account that people do not like their music.

And who says all Detroiters hate Nickleback? According to this article in the Detroit Free Press ( http://www.freep.com/article/20111103/ENT04/111103045/Petition-protests-Nickelback-Lions-Thanksgiving-Day-game-performer ), they sold out both of their concerts in the Motor City during their 2009 tour and four of the albums in the US have gone multi-platinum. So it's quite obvious that some people out there enjoy this "awful band". This band that makes people "want to drink bleach" or "stick a power drill in their ear" whenever they hear their songs. Heck, I saw one comment that compared them to the Nazis. Seriously?

So I'm starting this petition to ensure that people who enjoy do Nickelback do not get to miss out on a special Thanksgiving treat. They were scared off from performing at Winnipeg Jets' home opener earlier this year. Let's ensure that this doesn't happen to them again.

      Clearly the people signing a petition to kick them out of the halftime show have never seen one of their shows...AMAZING. They're great live. They play extra shows in Detroit every year and their shows in Detroit sell out in just days. And people who dont like them? CHANGE THE CHANNEL.

      Nickleback should play...if you don't like them then go get a beer while they preform and really aren't there more important issues that Detroit residents could work on, like jobs, poor, hungry citizens...the city is so depressed economically this should be a non-issue.

      Love Nickleback! Go Lions. Let's Rock! Those who don't like them have their right to say so, but so do we!
