With the Ilitch case it's not hard to envision that someone early on never bothered to set up the apparatus to collect money for the city
I have heard Detroit is pretty dysfunctional.

Other cities fork over cash to keep stadiums in their cities. Maybe Detroit has been ignoring this so that Illitch would keep his teams in the city, not take them to the suburbs.
