Which Detroit Team is the Best Franchise in the City?
Who Rules over Detroit?
The question is sometimes asked, which team rules the motor city? Well, let’s look at the four teams that have been a part of the heart of the city for generations.
The City has been blessed with a rich history of great players, managers, stadiums and championship seasons. The Red Wings are the most recent to have won a championship, winning their most recent one in 2008. That championship boosted their total of Stanley Cup Championship wins to eleven. The Wings have won the most championships in the motor city. Many terrific players have come through the organization including Gordie Howe, Ted Lindsay, Steve Yzerman, Nickolas Lidstrom and Chris Osgood. Detroit got extremely lucky when they signed long time head coach Scotty Bowman. He turned the organization around from its losing ways and guided us to three championships.
There have been many memorable moments from the Detroit Pistons as well. They had two great runs in their history. One led by Isiah Thomas in the late 80s and early 90s with the Bad Boys teams and Chauncey Billups leading the way with his championship team with a win in the 2004 NBA Finals. The franchise is known for many colorful characters including Bill Laimbeer, Dennis Rodman, John Salley, Joe Dumars, Richard Hamilton and Ben Wallace. The most famous head coach for the Pistons was the great Chuck Daly, who helped his Pistons triumph in 2 championships.
When a person brings up the name Detroit Lions, one immediately thinks of star running back Barry Sanders and his awesome and breath taking runs towards the end zone. But there have also been many other great players in their history including Calvin Johnson, Matthew Stafford, Billy Sims, Chris Spielman and Bobby Layne. Unfortunately the team has never won a Super Bowl and their last appearance in an NFC Championship game was in 1991 against the Washington Redskins. The colorful Wayne Fontes was the head coach of that team and is probably the most famous of all the Lions most recent coaches.
When we talk about Detroit sports of course we can not forget about the rich tradition of the Detroit Tigers. They have won 4 championships, with the last one being in 1984. We can go on and on about star players. But some of the most memorable ones include Ty Cobb, Charlie Gehringer, Hank Greenburg, Mickey Lolich, Jack Morris, Alan Trammell, and current player Miguel Cabrera. Sparky Anderson led the great 1980’s Tigers with many division title runs and Jim Leyland led his talented teams with World Series appearances in 2006 and 2012.
There have been numerous Tiger memories over the past 100 plus years, with the Tigers being the oldest of the Detroit franchises. Many championships and parades have marched through the city during the great years. It is extremely hard to pick a clear winner of the four teams. But, if you were to pick just one whom you thought was the best or the team you had the most fun watching, who would you choose?
