As opposed to profiting that much. It's still a difference of that much money.

 

But that's kind of the point. 

 

If for example Comerica bought the naming rights people might be annoyed but everyone could understand becasue they would have had to have dumped a battleship full of money onto Mr. I's front yard. 

 

This is simply shuffling money from one of Mr. I's companies to another.  He's not making any money by doing this.  Sure you could say there's a gain in marketing but I'd argue it's completely negligible anyway becasue who the hell around here doesn't know about Little Caesars already.  It's so incredibly self centered for such little gain.  Here was a chance really rally the fan base around something and instead he sold out to himself for a marginal marketing effect.  No one is surprised by the decision, and of course he  but that doesn't make it any less offensive to us. 

 

This is also ignoring the fact that half of the stadium comes from publicly funded money (I could be wrong though) so why should he get to profit off of the taxpayers capital without their consent?  And also ignroing the fact of the gigantic bait and switch with the roof again for marginal corporate gain.  And also ignoring the fact IT'S A FREAKING MEDIOCRE PIZZA CHAIN.  NOTHING ATHLETIC ABOUT IT.

So I understand why people feel deceived about the appearance of the building and how the LED changing roof is not happening.

 

That just seems like a really short-sighted, stupid decision.

 

But as far as the name...It's not like they're just giving it to him for free.  He's paying millions each year to have it that.  

 

They were going to sell those rights to someone.  It's very naive to think otherwise. Why not Little Ceasars? 

He's paying millions each year....  to himself...

Package howard for vlasic .... Workout something for Phaneuf -2mill per yr

We'd be flying

Kronwall Phaneuf

Vlasic dekeyser

Ericsson marchenko

Ouellet

Trade nyquist for someone bigger faster upfront ... A nice fast big body 6'3 220 type would be a big time add ... Seeing jurco helm and Tatar nyquist going after pucks against Boyle and other losers from tampa was hard to watch

 

 

Your username makes this really ironic lol

Wow Jon cooper is a little crybaby. Maybe the team would respond better if he quit whining.

The defense needs some changes this offseason I'm tired of all these plugs. Infuse the youth completely (80 games for Marchenko and Quellet) or make a package for a stud. 55 is a number 2.

 

I feel like a lot of us have been saying that since #5 retired.

Not sure if we got too overconfident or just got a little too lazy on the D.  That second goal was inexcusable.

 

Time to play strong and show the road doubters what we're made of.

Read my mind about the Carlyle thing. I was trying to imagine what Babs's post-game rant would be, and I kept thinking of Randy Carlyle and his epic hard-on for Compete.

 

But, really, that's what was so ugly about tonight, at least to me. I felt like we were never really giving it our all, or anything even close to it. What are we saving anything for? Down 3-1 and facing elimination in Boston? Is that when we're planning to "Leave No Doubt"? Blah. Check your heads and hearts, Wings. Tonight should be the mother of all wake-up calls.

 

This exactly.  There was NO effort.  No sense of urgency.  Not metaphorical fire under their asses.  Just the usual float around "calm collected cool" mentality. 

 

I wouldn't be this pissed off if they showed some damn effort and energy.
