    Ridiculous. The people running LCA need to be launched into space.

    I mean.... you could just put a product worth watching on the ice? Cut the ties with the dead weight of Abdelkader, and Erricson, Howard and Helm.. give the fans a fresh start. A young team with identity, even when losing is something fans can embrace... I think we are slowly getting to that point but more needs to be done.

    Why are they making them black? Am I missing something?

    They think that will conceal the lack of butts in the seats, apparently.

    Maybe black seats do not show up as much as red on tv.

    It's far more distracting for folks who watch on tv knowing the team playing there doesn't have black in their color scheme.

    Red is the color that sticks out the most to the human eye.

    Might as well beg the corporate clientele to show up for the tickets they purchased. This is what happens when the actual fan base is priced out.

    They should've put pictures of fans on the seats. Maybe on tv you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

    you aren't filling up an arena if the team sucks, even if they like the direction of the team. Tickets are too expensive for that

    Good! I was just thinking I haven't seen Abdelkader play all year.. was wondering where him and Jimmy have been.

    Good thing Justin is just on a short term deal.

    1 roster player sold over the last 3 seasons? It's an extremely slow approach, far from "exactly" what ss was proposing. Remember all the rumors about trading Glendening, Howard, Nyquist, and Green? It was all hot air, blowing from the asses known as Helene and Custance. The Wings are moving as usual at a snail's pace, letting time just wash away their overpriced contracts.

    This year LCA could be the most attended arena in the world. Little Caesars Arena likely will near top of world's most-attended arenas this year

    The multi-billionaire corp. Illich Holdings doesn't need to concern themselves over the Wings or Pistons.

    I like the idea of creating a team of CGI artists to superimpose a crowd into the arena every night. But random fake fans? No, we can do better. We are talking about an arena built from the nutritious dough of the greatest pizza empire on Earth.

    Imagine, the camera pans past the players' bench and what is it you see? Shrek, Wreck It Ralph, Nemo, Gollum, and those blue *******s from Avatar.

    So instead of work talk being, "Hey Bill, did you see the Wings game last night? Geez, what a stinker. But hey, they are rebuilding, I guess."
    With Bench-o-vision 2.0, "Bill, I was watching the Wings and I saw Buzz Lightyear slamming beers with Kung Fu Panda. Incredible! Oh right, and Larkin did a thing, I don't know, I couldn't really notice with how full the crowd was with Minions and droids from the hit prequel Star Wars: The Phantom Menace."

    But a corporation like this doesn't like to make these type of headlines.

    Next will be holographic images projected on the seats.

    The biggest problem is the seats (that are sold) that cost hundreds of dollars a piece, and encourage you to not be in those seats, are the ones most visible on tv. That was a terrible idea.

    But please, keep telling yourselves that your "protests" are doing something

    You think they would have thought about this happening BEFORE they bought all those red seats during construction.

    "Hey guys, you think red is a bad color choice for lower bowl seating right now since the Wings are probably going to be terrible when the arena is built and fans won't want to go to the games?"

    "Nah, there is no way that will happen!"

    Why lower ticket prices when you could spend a bunch of money changing the color of the seats to try to hide the fact that nobody is watching the game?

    I thought all the over priced vets were supposed to drive up interest and fill the arena! :sarcasm:
