No doubt, dwt doesn't know what he is talking about in regards to the stadium. The Lions and the city of Pontiac were a perfect match of incompetent boobs. The Lions went along for the ride to get Ford Field, the Tigers did all the heavy lifting.


The Lions are at the bottom of revenue in the league. they take in nearly 100 million dollars less a year than the #10 team. It is embarassing how inept they are at making money.

The Lions can't even win in the revenue business. Sad.

If ticket prices and PSL's are part of the revenue stream, there is no wonder. Lions do not deserve any more per ticket than they are already charging and if a PSL gets instituted, you will see a mass exodus of Season Ticket Holders.

Why did they want to renovate the Silverdome? For shits and grins, to throw away cash?
