What exactly is wrong with Joe Louis Arena?

This notion that entertainment leads to revitilization, economic resurrection, and vitality is strange at best.

If anything it shakes money out of the pockets of whats left of the middle class trying to pay mortgage.

The way to build economies is through industry, production, jobs, middle class, and real disposable income. Spent on things people actually require to be productive. Most nations that are rising up in the world order get this.

A flatlining dead and bankrupt city like Detroit probably shouldn't be wasting Tax dollars.
Please spare the dramatics...way to blow things out of proportion. I'm sure this will not bring the motor city down nor would it weigh to heavy on the citizens of Edmonton. Neither city/economy has to implement Roosevelt's new deal or build sprocket factories to spur economic developement. I'm sure there are alot of US cities that would love Ilitch to do business in their cities, I'm sure the same could be said for Katz as well.
