I don't know if it filed for bankruptcy, but it ran into a lot trouble before Bing was elected. I don't know how good Jalen could do, but the one thing is that he grew up in the neighborhoods that are hardest hit. Even if it's not in a mayoral spot, he may have knowledge and resources to turn those neighborhoods around. Without it, I don't see this get Detroit renaissance happening outside of a few locations.

Orton had better defenses with the Bears than Stafford had this year and was average at best. The only time he got the Bears to the playoffs, he was benched at the end of the season. His QB rating was the lowest in the league. Stafford has better career numbers. And for all the crap Stafford gets, his postseason numbers are better. It's only two games, but it's two more than Orton.

He's an opinion talker, not a former player or athlete that has this inherent sports knowledge advantage over most of us. So he's going to be wrong, just like we're wrong sometimes. I just listen to him because I don't have Sirius anymore and cannot stand a silent car during rush hour.
|10 hours 20 min ago||I prefer his objectiveness over the rah rah guys||
In 2010, he said that only two coaches would scare him if Michigan hired them. One was Urbz and the other Harbaugh. When Hoke was hired, he basically threw a party for four hours on the air.
I would recommend listening to Valenti when Foster is on vacation. He sticks straight to sports and none of the other garbage like local politics or what's on the police blotter.
Do I love Valenti? Nope. But he's sadly the best we got in Detroit. If you want to compare, listen to 105.1 during the same time slot. That is a clown show.

The term "career politician" is used in a negative light for a reason. Experienced people run Washington and it's always in gridlock.

He was a bit of a disappointment to a lot of people until the tournament.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Is his dislike for media why...||
...the headshot they show for him is so messed up? Dude is cross-eyed and looking off camera. I never laughed because I wasn't sure if he had a vision or other physical/mental issue.
|1 day 13 hours ago||I've never seen two equally disliked teams in SB before||
People hated the Baltimore/NYG SB because both offenses suck. But this one delivers serious dislike for the actual people and franchises in the game. If only both teams had similar hate for each other. Then there would be something in the actual game to look forward to.

Oh please let it be true. It's not like I need a reason to see what he's up to, but I would delight in what he'd have to say.
|1 day 17 hours ago||LOL @ "get a grip"||
I was in school when Sparty burned up Munn in 1998 and tore up EL in 1999. There was a lot of yucking it up and tears were not shed when kids faced expulsion. And there are still plenty of people with popcorn in hand when Sparty wins or loses a big game.
Also, if you think serving Community Service is throwing the book at them, then that's an indication of the societal failures unfolding before our eyes.
Oh and I'm not embarrased by what 100+ drunk kids do. My degree is from a school that hosted the Naked Mile, an event I embraced.
|1 day 17 hours ago||C'mon, no one's asking for jail time||
But those involved should face some consequences, beyond organizational suspensions. The organizations can pay for whatever damages and the kids involved can do community service. We can't sit in glass houses and yuck it up when Sparty destroys EL and kids get kicked out of school.

I'm going to assume her focus was not on the truck for Defensive MVP since her husband could afford a fleet of them. Nothing wrong with sticking up for her man.
I don't know anything else about her, so I don't know if this is par for the course. But we can all agree that the Shield is a joke now.
|1 day 17 hours ago||What is the point of all these threads?||
Is it the Tom Brady connection and the desire to prove one of our own is not guilty? I don't mind the distraction from the countdown to NSD, but I'm just curious.
For my take, unless someone wanted to cause the Patriots to lose and deflated the balls for that purpose, those balls were deflated with the knowledge of what works best for Brady. And if this investigation is going to last past the Super Bowl (ie. Meaning no pre-SB disciplinary action) then ESPN and Co. should channel their inner Richard Sherman. If he knows nothing is going to happen soon thanks in part to the Goodell/Kraft friendship, the media should follow his lead.

I know people who have moved to Harper Woods because they can then get their kids into the GP school system. I don't blame them for doing that if they are trying to get the best for their kids. And I don't know what happens in the schools outside of what the news decides to report.
Now in terms of what happens to blacks in GP, I don't have first knowledge of bad stuff and I'm black. And I've been to GP a lot. The only time I was pulled over there, I ran a blinking red at 2AM right in front of a police car. He was very polite, told me to be careful and didn't even give me a written warning. It was my fault and I would have deserved a ticket, but the officer showed me kindness. And I was 19 at the time. He definitely could have rang me up if he wanted to.

I love that comment. I think it's funny regardless of which side of the bananas you stand on.
|2 days 15 hours ago||I'm okay with sub-.500 division winners in playoffs||
But they should reseed if you're not in the top two of your conference. Carolina should have had to go to Arizona for that playoff game.

That would improve ratings. People who have dumped cable so they don't have to pay for Lifetime or TBN are not going to get cable just for a couple games.
|2 days 15 hours ago||"After catching some violent crime stories"||
Not exactly sure why you threw that in there. It's irrelevant IMO. I work in Bloomfield Hills and have heard more crime stories out here than GP. Despite the news stories or rankings (good or bad), you will still get a great education in those schools.
But I'm not sure if this topic will end well when discussing the situation with GP's schools, based on the Facebook, DetNews, Freep comments. Honestly I don't know if this belongs on the board because it can go sideways very quickly.
|2 days 16 hours ago||The same as when he was hired||
They don't have corn for brains and know this was not a great hire. Unless you are truly in love with Nebraska (the state or the school), Michigan will win more battles than not considering the two coaching staffs.
|3 days 13 hours ago||At 6'6" 280lbs...||
...I'm guessing the staff saw good enough technique and other skills that would make him unstoppable when he's a 6'7", 300+lb junior.

Clark was retweeting a picture of Zach Gentry at Crisler last night so I had hope it was him.

Equal parts each, plus grapefruit juice and cranberry juice. Don't try it for yourself, just experimenting this evening.
|5 days 14 hours ago||If true...||
...I don't know what the league could do. If they didn't inspect the balls in November, then it's just an allegation and the Pats wouldn't be considered a repeat offender of that violation.
Can't the NFL interview the team attendant that was just fired, talk to Brady and then fine him a game check and move on? There's no way someone is going to deflate the balls without the future Hall of Famer's approval since he would be affected the most. And there's no way the NFL will suspend Brady for the Super Bowl.
