The vast majority of the media consists of stupid bandwagon fans anyhow. They're all Packers, Patriots, NFC East, and big market team fans. The Lions and pretty much all of the Detroit based teams in general get zero respect from the media, because they're from Detroit, and people love to hate Detroit for no reason whatsoever. You have no idea how much I see the "Dumptroit"/"Detroilet/0-16 fits your city" crap I see all over the Internet. It's dumb.
But yeah. Talking about Katrina is pretty classless of him.
Just ignore them and move on. They have zero impact on the game anyway.
