Worked in Detroit -Southwest and Downtown- for nearly a year. Needless to say unless you work there everyday you really don't know how bad it is. Love the city but it's a pit.

Key thing to the proposed, new arena is 'Multi-purpose.' A new arena isn't going to bring in more fans for Red Wings' games, it's "sold out" every night but tickets are given away by corporations and end up not being used. A new arena might give them incentive to go though. Having a state-of-the-art arena for the Illitch family would be able to host concerts and other events for more cash flow.

As for Mr. I himself, a lot of people say Barry Sanders, Steve Yzerman, etc are Detroit but they would be wrong. Mr. Illitch will always be Detroit.
