    There's 4 sports teams in Detroit (well technically 3 in the city of Detroit itself since the Pistons play in Auburn Hills). He also owns the Fox Theater. He should buy the Lions and turn them into champions. Worked for the Red Wings.

    And his wife owns a Motor City Casino as well.

    If he buys the Pistons he will also bid for The Palace and DTE Energy and so anytime you go to a concert, chances are you're cash is going into one of the Illitch's pockets.

    According to The Ticket's 2-6 show, he's more interested in the stadiums and venues, then the actual team.

    I don't like that very much.

    This looks like expanding his holdings from "sports" to "entertainment". I don't believe for a moment Illitch wants to see the Pistons go, so he may be interested in getting the team to keep it in Detroit.

    As an important reminder, take a look at the amount of time it took for his teams to become contenders. He bought the Red Wings in '82 and it took about 10 years before it became synonymous with "Hockeytown". He bought the Tigers in '92 and only recently have they been winning. I'd sincerely believe it would take some time to make the Pistons into a winner.

    But then again, imagine what happens if all those venues can bring in other entertainment dollars? That would cement funding for the leverage he would need in order to buy out Palace Sports and Entertainment. It's corporate restructuring at its finest.

    I thought it was that way, but wasn't sure.

    That said, he'd either have to start his own network. Remember the Sports network in town use to be called "PASS" for the longest time (I have no idea if Mr. I owned it or not).

    Or he would have to buy the Sports division of FOX
