    I've seen a few interviews on tv with workers since yesterday and their lack of knowledge about what specifically the strike issues are is pretty apparent. Shouldn't the union leadership clearly...

    Then you have the Tigers and the 2 players named Aurelio. Aurelio Rodriguez, former 3rd baseman and fan favorite in the '70's, returned to Detroit in his early 50's for an autograph signing. He was...

    You most certainly can fault these guys. They are absolutely terrible. Shepherd would be fired immediately if they surveyed fan opinion. I've been on many sports sites and have yet to hear anyone who...

    Maybe there just isn't the demand for a 4-5 star hotel downtown that we think is needed. Ilitch promised a hotel near the LCA (I know, I know it's Ilitch) but I'm certain they would like a premier...

    700 per month for a 31,000 sq. ft. building? Sounds fair. No wonder they're in no hurry to move.

    I'll take my shot as well. Nobody thinks athletes aren't overpaid to some extent and contracts like Cabrera, Stafford, etc. don't seem to give a return to the fan considering the team records. It's...

    It does seem like some of the exhibit space and even the large open retail spaces are luxuries that could be reduced.

    It's rare for a rookie qb to start the 1st game of the season. If he does, it usually takes half a season to get adjusted - unless it's the Lions, then it just takes half a game.

    Very nice but "upbeat Detroit pictures" and "drive by shooting" together in the same pictorial?

    I would love to see a breakdown also. If you count things like Canadian day trippers or Int'l hub traffic at Metro it makes a mockery of what may be a legitimate increase in visits.

    Certainly no offense intended, but to say Detroit is poised to be better than it's prime? I guess it was meant to be tongue in cheek.
    For those not familiar, here's a peek of Detroit in its prime:

    Yes, thank you! He kind of reminded me of Johnny Carson. He had that laid back style and was able to get any guest, from an athlete to the governor, to relax and be candid with him. I used to love...

    It's the same with cars. All the classic names have been replaced with letter/number combinations that nobody will recognize. Just as well I guess, since most are on boring suv's.

    Cleveland has a Ritz-Carlton, Metropolitan and Hyatt-Regency downtown so you can't blame Gilbert for thinking Detroit can support at least one luxury brand.

    The corporate naming rights thing goes back a long way and actually was kind of backward. In the early '50's the Busch family wanted to change the name of Sportmen's Park in St. Louis to Budweiser...

    Anyone know how Granite City is doing? The patio always looks empty, although the corner of the tunnel entrance at Jefferson is just a place to suck exhaust fumes.
