    I saw this story on MSN. It turns out the plane, like the team, has no defense system.

    Someone help me understand..........Why 44 passengers?

    Who would be joining the players, coaches, and maybe press?

    I think they take family on the flights.

    It seems that anything and everything associated with the Pistons has a hard time doing things right these days.

    The organization actually started selling seats through Expedia to boost revenue.

    Even before takeoff, the mechanic told the crew that "the steering was all right."

    They were "repairing on the fly".

    I thought the problem was the fact that some fans had occupied player seats on the plane.
