#2674399 Official - Little Caesars Arena

Posted by F.Michael on 29 April 2016 - 12:08 AM

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. 

If Ilitch paid for the whole damn thing himself - call it whatever ya want.

 

Taxpayer $$$ being used, and this idea for nostalgia sorta led us to believe it wouldn't have any hokey name.

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.

I understand but ppl had to of known that it wasn't going to be,named the way they wanted it to be.

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.

The complaining on fb is ridiculous. It could have been named after a bank or something worse but it was named after the owners business who'd have thought smh

I personally believe that many fans hold the Ilitch family in higher regard, and naming it after one of their businesses only shows that they're like any other owner - $$$ talks.

 

Not that I can blame them - it's their business - just that I too would've preferred something more nostalgic.


Worst name ever ... with all the heritage and legends that put on a Wings jersey, they decide to go with that ... ahhhhhhh!   And for 20 years ??!!

Agreed.

 

I would've accepted 'Caesars Olympia', or 'Caesars Auditorium'.

How are the pre 99 and post 99 logos different?

1 of the cats has eyelashes?

#2673842 ECSF : New York Islanders vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Posted by F.Michael on 26 April 2016 - 01:26 PM

Is it me, or does anyone else find it strange that the Eastern Conference is beginning round 2 of the playoffs when in fact there's game 7 to be played tomorrow night between the Preds/Ducks?

 

I understand much of this has to do with availability of the arenas, and such...




#2673840 WCSF : St. Louis Blues vs. Dallas Stars

Posted by F.Michael on 26 April 2016 - 01:23 PM

How can some of you still root for the Blues?  They're not playing the Hawks anymore.  

 

Go Stars!

Stars won in '99.

 

Blues haven't won at all.

 

I consider the Blues a bit 'Old School' in the sense that they were part of the 1st expansion back in 1967.

Detroit Red Wings continue to be the last team to have won the Cup in back-to-back seasons.

No more 'Chelsea Dagger' for the next several months.

American Staffordshire Terriers/Pitbulls/Any mix of them...I wouldn't shed a tear if this breed of dog was outlawed, and disappeared.

 

Some poor infant was mauled to death by a Pit bull mix a few days ago.

 

From Dog Bites.org - 'In the 11-year period of 2005 through 2015, canines killed 360 Americans. Pit bulls contributed to 64% (232) of these deaths. Combined, pit bulls and rottweilers contributed to 76% of the total recorded deaths'.




#2673607 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by F.Michael on 25 April 2016 - 06:09 PM

For the ones saying no ... If datsyuk says he'd return if radulov would sign with the wings would you say yes or still stick with the no?

Only if Holland hires Joey Kocur as the Wings motivational coach...And when I say 'motivate' - I mean he gets to punch guys in the face who screw up, or take nights off.

No thanks.

 

We don't need a guy who has too many 'off nights'.

Gotta like the op just because he's got Bob Probert in his avatar.




#2673565 Ownership shows Support for Kenny Holland

Holland said he'll be more aggressive at the Entry Draft regarding trades....
