#2108101 Red Wings Hosting the Classic, 24/7at some point?

Posted by LOredwing248 on 01 February 2011 - 07:10 PM

And it'd be nice but at the same time it's the city Detroit and I don't have much faith that the Bettman marketing team will be in favor.

In any event, while I hope for both, I think titanium2 may be correct - I really don't see them striving to promote it in terms of a marketing campaign, solely based on Detroit's situation as a city. I've only visited once since being born there (saw the Datsyuk/Bertuzzi awesome shootout goals against the Hawks last year) and the ciy itself wasn't so great. We only found a couple restaurants that were open on a Saturday at about 6 p.m. - the Hard Rock, and I think some little burger shop named Checker's , or something to that effect. It's owned by 2 sisters or whatever. But that's just unacceptable. With that being said, I hope it happens, as Comerica would be an awesome venue...or worst case scenario, it gets moved to Ann Arbor and a new record for attendance can be set for an NHL game. Do you think Babcock & Co. would be receptive to allowing such candid behind the scenes access during the regular season? I think that was a point of contention going into the production of this past Winter Classic 24/7. A "Hard Knocks" edition for the Red Wings would be AWESOME...I'd love to see the trials and tribulations of a Tatar/Smith/Mursak/whoever else trying to make the club next year.

I can tell you guys spend a lot of time in Detroit......And at any rate like some have mentioned already we've successfully had a Super Bowl and other events and besides if the winter classic can be held in Buffalo it sure as hell can be held in Detroit..

Not to pick on you, but I keep seeing names like this. It will be something outside of Illitch Holdings, because he won't make any money off of a name if it comes from his own business.

Why wouldn't Illitch Holdings possibly take advantage of such a marketing scheme? Look at Ford Field, same thing.

Also I still love the Joe no matter what most people think and I agree it will be very hard to say goodbye.
