As the Auto industry and the big unions are coughing up cash, if they really want a bailout they should consider tapping into the Motor City Bowl because the Big Three automakers sponsor the Motor City Bowl.
Tickets are $45, but lets add $20 to make them $65 with $20 or $30 going to a fund in which $10 goes to GM, $10 to Ford, and $10 to DaimlerChrysler. Ford Field is a 65,000 seat stadium which means the Big Three would split over $195,000. Perhaps if the Big three is so reckless, we should give the people who attend a big time sporting event or concert in the Detroit region an option they would pay $30 more for a ticket with the extra fee going to the big three auto fund.
I mean, Wisconsin will not end up in the Motor City Bowl against Central Michigan, but hopefully some Big Ten team’s fan base like the Illinois Fighting Illini who goes to the bowl will be very generous. I think this would be much better than actually have the big three complain to Congress and have the UAW ask for another handout.
Think of what Detroit’s hosting that would give Detroit so much cash to help out the big three.

So executives of GM, Ford, and Chrysler, here is your bailout plan, leave us taxpayers alone because I do not want to bail you out.
