Default No X-Games for Detroit

I was actually pretty hopeful Detroit would get it. As much as people bag on Detroit (insert generic slam here), it's got perfect locations for all the events. I watched Austin's bid and Detroit's bid and I objectively liked Detroit's better. Call me a homer if you will be the bid was so much sweeter. Heck, even people in Austin said Detroit wanted it more

Too bad this time around, but maybe 3 years from now it'll come back this way.

Detroit? The place with the highest crime rate and 58 minute police emergency response time? nope.. I'd avoid going there even if it was an event I really wanted to go to. smart move x-games. Also the city is completely bankrupt (declared bankruptcy) and has no money to do anything.

I always get bummed out when I see pictures of these dilapidated old houses that have been burned up, left to rot, etc...since so many of them look like that at one point they were incredibly awesome.

Too bad they cannot come up with a decent workable plan to re-vitalize the city.
