Don't abandon Ford

A couple of weeks ago, a report surfaced that the Michigan High School Athletic Association is thinking about moving the state football finals from Ford Field to multiple sights around the state.
While Ford Field by no means treats the media the best (charging $30 a day for wireless internet use is utterly shameful), moving the finals out of there would be a mistake in the eyes of this media member.
Even though Ford Field isn't centrally located, it's still the best facility in the state.
Fans don't have to stand outside in the cold after Thanksgiving and players get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play at an NFL stadium.
Also, it's nice for general fans who have no affliation with competing schools, but just want to see the finals, to know there's one location for all the games.
Why make them, as well as media, drive to Ann Arbor one day and then East Lansing the next?
Kosmo understands the need for the MHSAA to be fiscally responsible in these tough economic times.
However, moving the finals out of Ford Field would be a bad thing for players, fans and media around the state.
