“Detroit is home to so many great musicians and they chose Nickelback?!?!?! Does anyone even like Nickelback?,” asks Lions fan Dennis Guttman. “Is this some sort of ploy to get people to leave their seats during halftime to spend money on alcoholic beverages and concessions? This is completely unfair to those of us who purchased tickets to the game.” A few days ago, Guttman launched an online crusade against Nickelback’s proposed halftime appearance. As of this writing almost 37,000 people have signed it, thereby becoming official Occupy Halftime protesters.
