Anyone seen Pistons attendance lately?

If the Wings ever slip in the standings, I fear how bad attendance gets. It's not that people there don't like hockey, it's that downtown is scary and there are no jobs.
This is ridiculous, Detroit still has a plethora of fortune 500 companies and tons of money in the surrounding area. The city itself has been struggling since the 60's riots on a long decline. That doesn't mean even with the trouble the autos hit that all the money in the area has evaporated. It just doesn't go to the city of Detroit. When you have crooks like Coleman Young and Kwame Kilpatrick running the city over the years it is not surprising. But this notion that there is no cash and all is lost is painting a picture that is a little more disastrous than is really the case.
