Little Caesars Arena roof faces backlash
DETROIT – A birds-eye view Tuesday provided a look at the roof of Detroit's new arena, leaving many disappointed.
The official Twitter page of Little Caesars Arena shared video of the roof which featured, what it's calling, the world's largest Little Caesar, the mascot for the pizza chain.
The new home for the Detroit Red Wings (and maybe the Pistons) had a different look when it was first conceived.
In 2014, design concepts showed the roof having a Red Wings logo, lit up, and surrounded by LEDs.
The stark difference between concept and reality has led to many fans sharing their discontent on Twitter.
still not the LED roof you promised us— . (@mybalzich__) July 11, 2017
It looks absolutely horrible. This is embarrassing.— Stephanie (@Steph832) July 11, 2017
Of course, not everyone is upset with about the change. Some Twitter users were very understanding and approving of the roof's new look.
