Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium Finalized

Rate this topic

202 posts in this topic

I wonder if a Wings prospect will play at Comerica for the Griffins-Marlies game and then get a call up the next morning for the Winter Classic. Two outdoor games in two days.

Dumbest. Decision. Ever. This is the Detroit Red Wings, not the Michigan Wolverines. The Winter Classic should be held in Detroit, not in an over-rated stadium that isn't even close to the Detroit city limits. I would rather the state of Michigan not have a Winter Classic than play it in a place other than Detroit. Hell, I'd rather Toronto host the WC than Ann Arbor. Hell, there's even an unused lot not far from Comerica that could be put to some use.

And I guess this puts to rest the idea that Illich supports the city of Detroit. This is a plain money grab by him. Period. He does not have Detroit's best interest at heart, or it would have been held at Comerica Park.

Detroit, once again, gets screwed out of a Winter Classic. f*** raw numbers, f*** the money, play the goddamn thing in Detroit or move it to Toronto. I certainly won't be watching it in 2013.

It's not like it's in a different country. I drive from Ann Arbor to Detroit for every game. It's no big deal. How many Red Wings fans actually live in Detroit?

lol I drive from Ann Arbor to Southgate every weekend... not even close? It's barely even a drive... me thinks a dumbass, butt-hurt spartan is behind all of this seeing as they'd rather have it in Canada than in Ann Arbor.

If so, just give up, nobody cares about that s*** school and their s*** stadium

I think that there needs be a Wings/Leafs game at the ACC in December especially if HBO will do 24/7 for this Winter Classic (or a similar show on another network).

The Winter Classic should not be the only game between the two teams next season.

From NHL:

Never one for subtlety, Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke put the 2013 Winter Classic in grandiose context on Thursday morning.

“It’s Hockeytown versus the center of the hockey universe,” he told NHL Live. “We’re really excited about this, obviously. Two passionate fanbases, but I can guarantee you’ll see a lot of blue in the Big House on Jan. 1.”

First rule of sparty fans: inferiority complex.

How did Draper end up in that picture?

How did they let Red Kelly wear a Leafs jersey?

With my hatred towards the Leafs now at an all-time high. I will be changing my signature to include Bruce Boudreau;

"When you want to measure yourself, you don't measure yourself against, no disrespect to TORONTO or any other team that I can think of right now, you measure yourself against the Detroit Red Wings. They are the best in the league, and whether they won last year's Cup or didn't win last year's Cup, they're the measuring stick."

Really???????????? Illich doesn't care about Detroit? He OWNS half of detroit. Red Wings, Tigers, Fox Theater, Motor City Casino are the big items. He tried to buy the Pistons and BRING THEM BACK DOWNTOWN. He owns every parking lot around Comerica Park and is giving up probably 57,000 cars paying parking. He didn't leave the city when he bought the wings and everyone wanted him to move to Troy.

Probably has something to do with his four Cups with TOR...

I was reading this article about the WC. Here's my favorite part when talking about Gary Bettman discussing the history between the Wings and Leafs:

He made no mention of the 1998 expansion that sent Toronto to the East and replaced Detroit's treasured rival with something called the Nashville Predators.

The bolded is sad and pathetic.

Don't embarrass the alumni of your school with that tripe.

If Detroit wants to fix itself, they shouldn't rely on yet another sporting game in the area to bring people in.

They've already had multiple chances to do that.

Theres a team in Phoenix and THIS is the dumbest decision ever? <_<

Seriously, get a grip. Excessive profanity doesn't get your point across anymore effectively but there's good news in all of this, the Flyers fans should welcome you with open arms.

Does Bettman realize he can't used the "lockout card" again?

Is it me, but I don't recall a Winter Classic announced so early...Wonder if it was intentional to place pressure on the NHLPA to work out a new deal with the BOG.

Brian Burke and that whole damn organization is like listening to a bunch of politicians.

Gotta hand it to Burke - he's a funny guy, but he's also right in the fact that the Leaf fans will show up in large numbers, and the fact that they're finally looking like a respectable team, and should make the playoffs (1st time post Sundin).

Wonder how many Leafs fans will indeed show up.

I say about half the stadium.

Agreed.

And Burke is probably close to his estimated time it'll take to sell 50,000 tickets to Leaf fans; there's gonna be alot of them at the Big House.
