Detroit Lions Matthew Stafford Says “No” To Pokemon Go
Despite the app's crazy popularity (since it's launch, Pokemon Go has been downloaded more than 100 million times according to MLive), Detroit Lion's quarterback Matthew Stafford is not jumping on the bandwagon, and wishes some of his teammates hadn't either.
In an interview with 'Mike & Mike' from ESPN, Stafford talked about his disappointment that a "surprising number" of his teammates play the game, wishing that they didn't. " I see guys trying to find Pokemon in the hot tub or the cold tub or whatever that is. I have no idea what that is — I don't have any social media or any of those apps or any of that kind of stuff — but it's a disappointing amount."
Stafford formed his opinion when he and his wife visited Ann Arbor recently. While they sat outside at a restaurant, the Lion's player said he saw "hundreds of people on a Saturday night, walking around with their phones out." And when asked if he has any plans to play the game in the future, his answer was a resounding NO.
