It's pretty clear you think one way about this and I think another.
We are arguing different points. I understand all the ramifications that it brings. I will challenge you on this though, that 85% of the fans in that bldg. on sunday couldn't give a poop about the Red Wings. So to say this is giving the fans a much needed break from the bad wings baseball (or however you phrased) is simply foolish. I know of 10 ppl off the top of my head that are going sunday that never go to wings games.
I'm not doubting all the pluses of an event. I just think it magnifies that we are a Minor League town that will do anything to crave attention and a quick buck. That's fine, but then don't say the care about doing what's best for the RED WINGS.
Can you imagine if the Amerks moved a friday night hockey game so a team like the Syracuse Crunch could accomadate more fans for a star player's rehab. (Let's say Stamkos if TB affiliates with SYR next yr) This board and you know it, would be pissed off beyond belief. It's the same thing with the Wings except less ppl actually care.
And despite the public ass-kissing the the city of Rochester gives to Mason. He doesn't care one iota about the product on the field. As evidence by this september when the Wings re-up with Minnesota AGAIN after a subpar season.
Just makes me sick.
