Bye-Bye Baggie-Roof-Michigan authorities are planning the demise of the Pontiac Silverdome, which hosted the Lions for the last quarter century and the Pistons during the '80s in their championship era. The Pistons moved to their own digs in nearby Auburn Hills a decade ago and the Lions are moving downtown to new Ford Field this fall. This is a great example of what the real estate text refer to as economic obsolescence. The Silverdome's just fine, as it functions just as well as when it was built in the late 70s, but the facility that was cutting-edge a quarter-century ago doesn't make sense in the current sports economic environment.
