GoFundMe effort to buy Lions off to slow start

The Detroit News
The Lions and their fans are having a rough season.

Jeff Tarnowski is not alone in his opinion.

"The Lions need a new owner," he says.

The former Central Michigan business student plans (dreams?) for that owner to be him -- and you.

That's why he started a GoFundMe account to acquire enough capital to purchase the Lions from the Ford family.

He has a lot of spirit, but not a lot of cash. At his current pace, Tarnowski's effort will fall slightly short.

Forbes estimates the Lions' value at $1.44 billion. As of Tuesday afternoon, Tarnowski had raised $140.
