    The extra funds are nice.. sure.. but the Red Wings have openly said they aren't interested in moving, regardless of if this happens or not.  

    And you're in a city that already has 3 bond initiatives they are still paying off that is at risk of blackouts for low attendance again for the Detroit Lions.

    So, really, add more tax to a tax base that is struggling to pay what is there now doesn't seem like a good idea.
