Official - Little Caesars Arena

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the 21St century, everyone. Advertising is the way of life. The building will be amazing regardless of what it's called.

The building won't be judged by how it looks, but by what is brought into it: The history of one of the greatest sports franchises in the world.

You're completely right. It just still stings a little - maybe less because of the building itself and more because of what it says about our way of life in general.

Will it be amazing watching it on TV and seeing the little Caesar's arena logo on the roof constantly instead of the wings logo

Well there a lot of things wrong in the 21 century, which were much better in the old days ... advertisement is for sure on that list.

A building without a soul is not amazing no matter how luxurious it may be. Best example is the Pens arena modern and comfortable beyond believe but Pens fans are missing the atmosphere of the igloo.

Why does every team need a new arena ? Why not improve the old one? I'm sure the Joe would have looked absolutely gorgeous with a huge renovation but no no, a bankrupt city decides to throw 200 down the toilete.

And the next plastic dome is already in the works...The new oilers arena good times

Wait, are they playing the game on the roof now?

The point on national TV and even during the pregame television feeds on Fox Sports Detroit they will have aerial shots of the Arena and the entire country will see the Little Caesars logo instead of the Detroit Red Wings logo. Absolutely disgusting and disappointing.

Yeah, sure it would be pretty cool if it were given a better name, or if it were named after one of the greats, but it's not the worst thing that could happen.

Regarding the top of the dome, if I'm not mistaken, wasn't it said that they would be able to change it for different events? Like for a concert, they could have the band logo or artists name on top, maybe they'll have the Winged Wheel up there for every game as well.

Regardless, no matter what it's called or what logo is on the top, it's not going to stop me from ever going down for a game and rooting on the Wings...

The other problem is they sold us and teased us and teased us with awesome look of the Red Wings logo LED and now they're going to throw all this crap on top. Again I wonder who's making decisions in this organization and how come it seems like every decision made recently is the worst possible decision for success and future of this organization? Of course we were told to expect less because it's more fun. Do you want some milk for your travel home?

The problem is it sends the wrong message. Naming it after the all-time greats, the best owner in all of sports would have kept things consistent, the only difference between this and one of the other super expensive arenas will be the location, nothing else. There is no history, no Stanley cups just bland plastic luxury dome.

Backslash won't do anything because that weasel Wilson will find some way to spin it as a good idea, which it is not

But that's just me. I'm a dreamer...who also played attention in civics class. Now if you'll excuse me, Living Colour's "Cult of Personality" just came on the radio and I need to go practice being slavish.

$5 says you were in diapers when that song came out in 1988.

Wow, this whole thing goes from bad to worse.

No disrespect, but has Mike finally lost it?

Also, the few Ilitch apologists left in here crack me up. They must not be American taxpayers, I guess.

True - just that we expect more is all.

Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI might be the only pro sports facility not whored out once the Joe is demolished.....To me - that says alot.

Perhaps thats due to the fans owning the stock of the team?

Better than Amway Arena...

Well that s***ty tasting pizza as you call it is owned by the Illitch family

Matches the s**** product currently being iced...

Basically. It was supposed to be a Red Wings arena but it's turned into a Little Caeser thing. Mike Illitch trolled us hard.

Would be one thing if tax payer money wasn't involved.

You might not care, but the people who paid tax dollars for it feel shafted. Can you say USED?!!? See quote below. Good way of explaining it.

I get WHY public funding is often necessary, I'm not even against public funding. I just think that if you're going to accept public funding for your teams new arena you should probably make an effort to represent and validate their contribution rather than be wholly greedy and promote your brand to their exclusion.
