#2421009 Ilitch reveals plan for new $450m, 18,000-seat Red Wings arena

Posted by FireCaptain on 20 June 2013 - 11:19 AM

Little Caesers Coliseum!

 

At least then, the Illitch's are just transferring money from one pocket to another. ;)

 

Whatever it ends up being, I don't want to see Amway Place © or Amway Arena © or anything with the word AMWAY in it.

 

Sorry to any independent business owners that are forum contributors, it's just that your parent company has a terrible reputation. 

They don't call it SCAMway for nothing.




#2420975 Ilitch reveals plan for new $450m, 18,000-seat Red Wings arena

I was in that article, that's why I said I didn't like the idea of the reduce seating numbers.

 

I'm pretty sure I read 18k somewhere.. I'll try to find a link



The field's also bigger with more players (and therefore more action) and a football is magnitudes larger than a puck.

 

Go home comparison, you're drunk.

 

Why are people worried about being further away from the ice? There isn't a bad seat at JLA, even at the very top. I've sat in dozens of spots there, from the 5th row from the ice to the absolute last row in the building. All sight lines are perfect. If you're worried about being too far from the action, how do you explain a football stadium?

That's far higher up than any hockey arena.

#2410879 Tip of the hat to Babcock

Posted by FireCaptain on 24 May 2013 - 11:54 AM

If only the Sens could turn it around and beat the Pens..

 

Then, Babcock would have a chance to beat all 3 "coach of the year" candidates while en route to the Cup!

Posted by FireCaptain on 09 May 2013 - 12:49 AM

Little Caesar's Coliseum would be WAY cooler. 

 

 

It's going to be called LIttle Casears Arena.

#2398548 WCQF Game 4 GDT : Ducks 2 @ Red Wings 3 (OT) - (Series tied, 2-2)

Posted by FireCaptain on 06 May 2013 - 10:21 PM

Is that Mike Keenan doing the postgame on CNBC?

 

He's a d-bag.

 

Heaven forbid he give the Wings some props for working hard for that goal. Nope, it's Allen's fault.
