Where the 49ers beat the Bengals to win their first Superbowl XVI January 24 1982.
For Detroit, that's not too bad.
is this used as a practice site or for college football?
It's not Detroit. It's a suburb, Pontiac.
Its been for sale for several years. I used to love watching games there. Team has always sucked, but got to see all of Barry Sandwrs games.
I used to sell popcorn there.
Who are they expecting to buy it? Seems like everywhere else just implodes the old stadium and builds something else.
I saw The Stones there w/ Santana and Iggy Pop in 1981. Also, The Who with The Clash right around the same time.
If I recall correctly, they sold that place a few years ago for some ridiculous price like 100,000 dollars. They did a rock festival with Stone Temple Pilots I think that probably drew a couple thousand people.
Many barry sanders memories there and scott mitchell too

Don't show this to the Iron Sheik.
You're correct. The local emergency manager sold it to one of his billionaire buddies for pennies on the dollar.
I saw the Bears play the Lions there in 1996. I accidently spilled a soda on the woman in front of me. I was very sorry but she wasn't forgiving.
maybe Kid Rock could buy it and throw some kinda hillbilly festival to revive Detroit, bring in the whiteys
Wrestlemania 3 was in the Silverdome
The best abandoned stadium was Bobby Maduro Stadium in Miami where the Baltimore Oriole's held its spring training. The unattended field turned into a hairy 70's bush
After refusing to entertain offers of several million. The new owner will just sit on the site until a developer comes along and will cash in. That's a popular thing in these parts.
