They want to have the Lions, Red Wings, Pistons and Tigers all playing really close to each other and create an entertainment district downtown.
Just like Detroit, Edmonton's downtown is a hellhole that a sports owner wants to revitalize. Only exception is in Michigan, they are willing to help that out, instead of thinking that corporations should be completely responsible for the revitalization of their cities.
With all respect I can't really have a conversation about this with people comparing downtown Detroit with Downtown Edmonton.
I can't comprehend the notion that anybody would think these are comparables.
