Detroit Lions fans expressed their frustration with ownership by mercilessly booing Sheila Ford Hamp during Calvin Johnson's Hall of Fame ring ceremony.
During halftime of Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens, Ford Hamp was trying to congratulate the legendary receiver, but was showered with boos. Johnson seemed a bit uncomfortable at first as he tried to quiet the boos by pushing his hands to the ground with a hand gesture.
Despite his sour relationship with the organization after being forced to pay back a little more than $1 million to the Lions upon his retirement after the 2015 season, Johnson returned to Ford Field to receive his ring.
The money was part of the signing bonus he had been given at the start of his final contract.
"It's an honor to represent excellence and everything that the Hall of Fame stands for," Johnson said on the field. "It's an honor to represent Detroit, I love you guys. And it's an honor to represent the NFL and the Johnson name on my back. I love you guys. I love the energy that y'all brought every Sunday. I miss you guys and I look forward to great things in the future here in Detroit."
