Personally, I believe what doomed the Silverdome with the NFL was its location and the lack of luxury suites. True, as a home for the Lions, it was much better than the Lions former home, Tiger Stadium. But, without the revenue from luxury suites et al, the Silverdome quickly became obsolete. In a sad state of Michigan real estate prices, the Silvedome sold at auction in 2009 for $550,00.00. A far cry from the $55.7 million price tag to build. Hopefully, the new ownership group will turn the Silverdome into a useful venue again.
