Wells Fargo Center = WFC

Our opinions to the Ref: WFC = Weak ****in' Call.

Looks like they're hanging 'em up to me...but I could be wrong, but it definitely looks like their hanging up letters, not just delivering them.

Yeah, I think the crane is a pretty damning sign.

the letters won't be swapped out until the hockey and basketball seasons are over. The cranes were merely hoisting the letters up to flat part of the roof to store them until they're needed because apparently it's the only place they'll fit.

Well if you wanna put up the money for naming rights power to ya, otherwise these stadiums will proby stay with the bank names.

I personally don't mind it, Wells Fargo Center sounds alright...

I wish I was a local reporter who reported this news but was then yelled at by their boss even though everyone in the world already knew...

Wells Fargo bought Wachovia. Wachovia owned the naming rights. Now Wells Fargo owns the naming rights.

It would be like you beating the hell out of a ****** bag and not claiming the ability to bang his girlfriend in the pooper... It's your legal right son, exploit it.

they have their names on multiple arenas or venues. I know Comcast-spectacor already operates one. Up north in Minnesota or Wisconsin or something

That would be worth the multi-million dollar naming rights.
