Ya know Detroit pro sports has hit rock bottom when...

...a matchup on FSN involving the Pistons against the best team in the NBA draws a 0.28 rating in Adults 18-49! :lol

...the day that Tigers opening day single game tickets go on sale draws a spectacular turnout of SIX WHOLE FANS at the open of business. :lol (...as reported by the Detroit Free Press)


Rock 95.5 in Chicago is the worst sounding major market rock station in the history of corporate radio.

It's a sad state of affairs when I feel the most confident of the future of the historically terrible Red Wings. The Lions are probably #2 on that list.

Lions will always be #4 on that list, until they win a playoff game. Maybe by 2050...
Pistons are probably the best of the Detroit teams, and no one cares.

For now, I agree with Matt's order. We'll see what the Pistons do in the offseason personnel wise.

Their chances of landing a top three pick are looking better and better.

Call me crazy but I bought tickets on Friday online. Then again, it was for Lou’s number retirement ceremony in August and I needed to make sure I got 4 tickets right behind home plate...

I used to love the NBA way back but I seldom watch it anymore. I find the absolute obsession with the three pointer to be maddening. Steph Curry is a fantastic shooter but I don't find it to be the least big interesting watching him fling up nonstop attempts all throughout the games. I remember watching an old NBA Hardwood Classics game from I think the early 80's on ESPN Classic or NBA TV a few months back and there were zero three pointer attempts in the first half and I think only two or three in the second half which I found to be way more enjoyable. Not against the three pointer as it has its place but nowadays it is out of control.

There are sizable portions of the state where a non-Detroit pro team (mostly Cubs or Packers) is higher on the pecking order than the Pistons

I took it as team most likely to win. Yes, the Pistons are #4 in terms of popularity, and only exceed that when they have a real playoff run. I still think they have the best shot of winning out of the four. The Lions have been a joke for decades and I won’t buy into them until they win a playoff game. 1991 was so long ago.

Agreed about Cubs and Packers being more popular than the Pistons, depending on where you are in the state. How popular are the Milwaukee teams in the UP or around Muskegon/Ludington?

I don't think Milwaukee teams have much, if any, following around here. People are either loyal Detroit fans, Packers fans (as football goes), Chicago fans, or fans of any other team, or don't care about pro sports - roughly in that order.

So true.. But somehow I think they are likely doing worse now with professional Poker being their main programming. :P

I'm hoping FSD can conjure up some classic Tigers games from the 80s (would be great to hear George & Al call a few games) as well as some classics from the other teams.

When I went to Northern Michigan it seem loyalties were split between Brewers and Tigers Fans. I noticed the Tigers fans were from places on the eastern part of the UP, (such as Newberry) and the Brewer fans were from places closer the the Wisconsin border, (Iron Mountain, Stephenson.)
