Yeah, and then there are those places like Mile High and Candlestick. They sold out, but everyone refuses to acknowledge it -- haha (spoken in the voice of Nelson)! For example, Mile High still says "Mile High" all over the place.

Don't get me wrong, it's better than Alliance field, or Petco Park etc etc, but they could have taken that one step farther and made it very original.

What if Phily named their stadium, Vince Papaly (sp?) stadium? All the fans would feel they went to a stadium that stood for perserverance, and guts. Just a thought.

Oh, I see.

But isn't Browns stadium named after Paul Brown..the owner?

My wife is a broncos fan, I remember laughing at her when I heard the name "invesco field at mile high". She was pissed that they sold out. Then again, she laughed at me when we changed from Jack Kent Cooke to Fed Ex...so she deserved it. HAHA

Freakin Snyder the sell out. I would wager we will never see his name on a professional stadium. I say professional cause he's into himself enough to buy a little league stadium and name it after him.

But then, the sponsorship may not be in the stadium name. Cleveland Browns Stadium (not to be confused with the Bengals' Paul Brown Stadium) has corporate sponsors for its seating areas, parking lots, entrance gates.

If ... nay, when I have my own stadium I'm definitely going to name it after myself. I can think of nothing more arrogant.

If anyone ever get's a chance to see a game at Arrowhead it's something you will never forget. Just an unbelievable atmosphere. RIP Lamar. One of the great old school owners along w/ Mara and Modell.

Yeah. I never got a chance to go, but my dad had season tickets about 10 years ago. He says the exact same thing. In fact, he doesn't even want to go to any other stadium.
