This is total bull! They are in bankruptcy, on average, police take about an hour to respond to calls for help, and 40% of street lights are shut off to save money. But they think this arena will bring a lot of jobs? hahaha idiots.

Detroit has to be the worst city in America right about now. I'm glad I don't live there.

Advocates of the arena say it's the kind of economic development needed to attract both people and private investment dollars into downtown Detroit. It's an argument that has convinced Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and Kevyn Orr, the emergency manager he appointed to oversee the city's finances, to stick with the plan.
Don't blame the city. It's the governor and the manager that want to go through with it.

This is a good idea, Detroit loves the Wings and always sell out.

Exactly. Being a Red Wings fan is a way of life here in Michigan. It will be sad to see them leave The Joe because it's a special place with lots of history and when you walk into the arena you just get that special feeling. The Wings have die-hard fans all over the world... even Cat is a fan and she doesn't even live in Detroit.

Detroit will get through this current situation but will most likely not learn anything from it and eventually have it happen again.... but it's still Detroit and it's still my city and I'll always love it.... that how alot of people feel here. DETROIT STAND UP!

What. Lets turn off the lights on one of the few bright sparks in the city. Gotta give people some escapism.

I conceded to take this fight at 162 pounds because fatty couldn't lose any more weight. I will do Vargas a favor by retiring him in this fight so his family doesn't have to suffer every time he steps in the ring. I'm going to do his wife a favor and not let her cry anymore.

It's an indicator of the Red Wings on-ice product and brand, as well as the rapport the franchise has with the market, and also of the city's priorities being out of order. Don't forget that this city gave the Lions and Tigers (who struggled for years) new venues also.

All reports of those who've visited and lived there have said that the market is just a shithole.

If DET gets a WM before the new venue is ready, this motivates me to attend it. I *MUST* see a game at the Joe in my lifetime. Preferably against VAN.

Burn the city down and start from scratch. There's so much abandonment in Detroit it's unreal. Start over completely, Detroit, it's the only way.
