On the wings board, it is suggested that the Pistons might play here too.

I wonder how much taxpayer dollars will finance the arena?
If Detroit's DDA TIF funding works like all the other DDA TIFs I've seen, the arena will be funded with tax dollars that would otherwise go to the schools, fire department, police department etc.
The pistons idea was coming into play when Illitch was in talks of buying the Pistons. It was then developed that the Wings and Pistons would share a new arena downtown (bringing the Pistons downtown finally). Unfortunately, I don't see this happening anymore.
