The lawsuit says a manager referred them to Happy’s Southfield location because “they would be more at home there.”The Barneys are black. Southfield has a majority black population and Commerce Township is mostly white.The lawsuit says a manager told police the Barneys were denied service because workers were preparing for a corporate event.Company spokeswoman Sherrie Handrinos denies any discrimination Tracy Walker Jersey White , saying workers were preparing that day for a Nov. 6 opening. She adds many customers were referred to two closer stores, not Southfield. Is Bob Quinn doing a good job? A good enough job?"It’s NFL Draft week, and for Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn, this could be the most important few days of his entire Lions career. This year’s draft is monumentally important for the franchise Ricky Jean Francois Jersey White , and in order to regain the fans’ trust in himself and head coach Matt Patricia, Quinn could really use a big playmaker or two in this year’s draft. But before we take on the 2019 NFL Draft, let’s see where Lions fans currently stand on their opinion of the general manager. When we last checked in our our approval ratings, Quinn experienced a big boost in approval for no real apparent reason. Just before we entered free agency Matthew Stafford Jersey , Quinn’s approval shot to 76 percent, despite ending the year with less than half of fans approving of his job. Take a look:March 2019: 76 percent approvalDecember 2018: 45 percent approval November 2018: 41 percent approvalOctober 2018: 70 percent approvalSeptember 2018: 26 percent approvalMay 2018: 89 percent approvalMarch 2018: 83 percent approvalFebruary 2018: 92 percent approvalNovember 2017: 78 percent approvalOctober 2017: 82 percent approvalAugust 2017: 95 percent approvalJune 2017: 93 percent approvalApril 2017: 97 percent approvalFebruary 2017: 93 percent approvalDecember 2016: 96 percent approvalAugust 2016: 70 percent approvalJune 2016: 86 percent approvalApril 2016: 74 percent approvalFebruary 2016: 72 percent approvalSince then, the Lions had themselves a free agency. They went out and got top players at the cornerback, tight end and edge positions Womens Kerryon Johnson Jersey , all while maintaining a very manageable cap in 2019. That being said, the way those contracts are structured, the Lions could have some issues down the line. That’s a problem Lions fans are familiar with, as it was part of the reason Detroit could keep talented players like Ndamukong Suh around under the previous regime. Still Michael Roberts Jersey , you have to admire Quinn’s aggressiveness after a very disappointing free agency period in 2018. You can start to see the vision he and Patricia have of this team, it’s just a matter of seeing any sort of positive on-field results at this point. So before this extremely important draft, let’s check in one more time. Do you approve of the job Bob Quinn is doing? Vote in the poll below.(Note: the poll does not show up on all formats.
