SI'll start with this. Q: What was Ilitch doing when the Tigers lost 119 games?

Answer: Assigning power to the right people to build a winner by trimming a lot of fat and starting from scratch.

So many things to respond to in this thread, but time doesn't permit me to pick out all of them. I'll start with this. Q: What was Ilitch doing when the Tigers lost 119 games? A: Hiding from the fans and media. He did not care. He was spending money on goalies while the Tigers became the worst team in baseball history.

The worst argument ever crops up again.

BINGO!

and who says hockey is not at fault?

ilitch owns 2 teams. He treats one like a god (dead wings), and the other (Tigers) like a red headed unwanted step child.

It's that simple.

That part about him being an idiot. Idiots don't create GIANT business empires like he did. He is a VERY smart businessman, it too bad that your blind hatred of him has caused you to become the idiot anytime Illitich is mentioned.

BTW, baseball has already approved the Tigers and the casino interest since Marian's name appears no where in the baseball team documents, neither do the kids. Why? Becuase except for the old man they all hate baseball and have been against this purchase from the start.

Which is why when the old man goes the for sale sign on the Tigers goes up almost immediately.

He has made some bad mistakes. Holding on to Randy too long and things like that. However I wouldn't go that far with him. He cares about the team more than Woodpecker or you give him credit for. He just trusted the wrong people for a while.

Refresh my memory. Didn't you have to post an apology about Mike Illitch actually caring last year after they signed Pudge?

Since you are so firmly rooted in believing something that has been proven wrong time and time again, I will let you go back to your "the world is flat" mindset.

The part that says he built a billion dollar empire out of a single pizzaria in Garden City.

Oh I get it. So when Joe McDonald, Randy Smith, and John McHale make bad decisions it's Ilitch's fault for not caring, neglecting the team, being an idiot, yada yada yada, but when Dombrowski makes a good decision it's Dombrowski's decision and Ilitch gets no credit.

Care for a second chance at your attempt in logic?

Agreed, I can never forgive Ilitch for that 2003 season. There is no reason the franchise had to go through it but they did because Mikey was literally ignoring the franchise.

Bullcrap... it was Randy Smith running the team in the ground, and DD being forced to do nothing but tear it down.

What a reasonable person you are.

You act like Ilitch raped your wife or something.

Dave Dombrowski? He has nothing to do with this though. It's about Ilitch and how he's one of the worst owners in baseball.

Actually, its just a testamant to how hands off Ilitch is as an owner. He hires a GM, and lets them do their job. Sounds like a normal owner to me.

He signed Pudge and attempted to sign Juan Gone when there was hockey.

Don't go to far in your boat. You're likely to fall over the edge of the world.

So, Randy Smith is relevant but DD isn't? No matter how much you try to sand off that square peg it still won't fit in that round hole.

I don't necessarily "like" Mike Ilitch... I just don't think he's the worst owner in baseball.

Once again, you misrepresent my position with considerable ease.
