Has anyone noticed he looks EXACTLY like Harpo Marx? What are his mental faculties like? When he accepted the pennant trophy for the Tigers last fall, he didn't seem to know where he was, as if he is going senile.

He's old and possibly senile, and he drinks too much.

I don't at his age there is a drinks to much.  I'd imagine being his age and accomplishing what he has he doesn't give a f*** 


There's no I in team, but there's a U in c***, so don't be little jealous c***s

You hit Harpo Marx on the nose haha. I've always thought the same thing. Plus, his hairpiece should've retired a long time ago :D

Really, people?  This is how you show gratitude and respect for the guy who took a heartbreak of wreckage, turned it around, and gave us four more Stanley Cups and made us the envy of the league?

 

Not to mention whatever he's done with the Tigers and for the city of Detroit and his charitable contributions.

 

I hope some day you get old and see how you like it.

 

Kids these days.

Let's lighten up a bit here. Poking fun at the guy must mean we hate everything he's ever done and think he's a bum.

I don't really know much about his kids, but I know a couple of people who have met or worked with them briefly and they all say the Ilitches are down to earth people. Now, that doesn't necessarily equate to competent ownership, but it seems like they will continue the style of ownership Mike Ilitch has used, which is good.

You make it sound like he just gave everyone that out of the good of his heart. I'm pretty sure he made a hefty profit on all of those things.

What he did, he may have gained some profit on yes. More improratantly it helped somewhat revive a dying city of Detroit year after year, which eventually grew more into shambles, which could not have been solved by a superbowl, stanley cup and whatever else

That's the American Dream, isn't it? I agree with 55fan - this forum in general has gotten a lot more whiny and a TON more disrespectful since I joined back in '07. The man single-handedly put Detroit back on the map as a sports town. He has provided most of us (including me) a hockey team that has made the playoffs in almost every year I've followed them with his own money... and don't think he was making wild profits back in the lean years when he was giving away a car every game to get people in the seats. I think he deserves a reward - both in money and *RESPECT* - for bringing sports, fans and jobs to my favorite city in the world.



Maybe each of my fingers is an undulating shrimp! It's a world of possibilities.

Ya I remember that, all you had to do was shoot a puck in the net from center ice, and you won a car. I never got my chance, I assure you unlike most of the people who attempted it I would have scored!

Not nearly as awful as girls that get huge fake boobs and the guys like them and they're not usually old.

Doesn't have Harpo's awesome hat, though.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Presumably by "what he's done for the city of Detroit" you mean not paying any taxes, rents, etc. while at the same time asking actual taxpayers to heavily subsidize his "redevelopment projects"?  If so, then yes, he's done a lot for the city of Detroit haha. 

 

But yes, he has spent a lot of money to make the Tigers a contender thank God.  I wouldn't know what to do if I couldn't go straight from watching the Wings dominate to watching the Tigers do the same. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."
