I was at two games there, it actually was an excellent stadium for sightlines and being close to the field from what I remember. Interesting.
All they need is an NFL team to play there :lol: :lol: :lol: ......oh wait....there is one, lets see, what are they called? Detroit Lions.
I thought they tore that down?
maybe Regina can buy it and move it, lol. :lol:
Well, the dome has been sold....to Canadians! They say they plan on using the site for a potential MLS franchise. Could the site be used for a CFL team as well??? Let the conspiracy begin...
CANADIAN FIRM SUBMITS WINNING BID OF $583,000 FOR SILVERDOME

The winning bidder, one of four and whose identity has not yet been released, plans to use the facility for a men's Major League Soccer team and women's professional soccer teams, Fred Leeb, Pontiac’s emergency financial manager, told the Free Press in an exclusive interview.
Leeb said the successful bidder's name is not being released until final details are worked out and the sale closes, which could take up to 45 days.
The 80,300-seat stadium, which was built for $55.7 million in 1975, is costing the city about $1.5 million annually just to maintain and financially strapped Pontiac can no longer afford the cost.
What a waste of money...
That dome is absoulutly worthless..
Anyone who wants to see a CFL team in there is nuts...
If somehow you could take off the roof and remove 50 000 seats..... it would still be a dumb idea.........
