Majority of the people in Michigan think Little Caesar pizza is terrible. They also think for $5 dollars sometimes it's worth it. When I need some cheap pizza on the go I stop by Little Caesars. When I need quality pizza I can name 25 other places in Michigan. And that doesn't even include Jets, Pizza Hut, Dominoes.
Part of the reason people are "upset" with the name is just that ^. Little Caesar's is terrible Pizza. It's low quality and crap grade. If they named it the Pizza Hut Arena it would probably be better received.
Just listing some reasons why people have issue with the name. Illitch named it after his pizza business, which I get. But most people also think his pizza tastes bad and shouldn't be named for an original 6 legendary team arena.
The Red Wings are LEGEND-
wait for it.
Joe Louis (with his 66 wins and 52 by Knockout) was LEGEND
wait for it.
Little Caesar's is not legendary.
Wings fans are spoiled. They want cool stuff.
- Think about it this way. For years people in Michigan have made fun of Little Caesar's pizza. Just so happens that Pizza place is about to be named after their sports team arena. PAYBACK!
Bottom line Wings fans are spoiled and think they are entitled. Sorry but they aren't and that petition is a joke will not change a thing. I'd be more concerned with the product on the ice rather than where that product is being played or the name of the arena it's played in.
