Could it be possible that Jacobs is still harbouring a I'll get you back thought? Could cancelling Ilitch's Winter Classic be spite?

Mike Ilitch is hosting the Winter Classic this year. If the Winter Classic gets cancelled there is no HBO special about Detroit and Toronto. You have to admit those four part HBO series are pretty awesome. They capture for all time a history that can only be done if there is a Winter Classic.

Just thinking.
