Who else agrees? Skyreach sounded so much better but oh well . what can you do? In another thread, we were discussing a nickname for Rexall....vote on which one you think sounds the best.

I remember not too many liked Skyreach when it was first announced but it eventually grew on people. I suspect that is exactly what happens here. I actually have no problem with the name.

I'm hoping that "The Drug-Den" will stick. I forget whose suggestion it was, but I mentioned it to my sister-in-law yesterday, and she thought it was perfect. Because she's been to a lot of AC/DC concerts there, and.. well, nevermind.

It could be worse. Some arenas are a lot worse(Gaylord Centre). Rexall signed a 10-year deal worth "lots of millions" so we will have a long time to get used to this new name. I just wish they would have called it Rexall Coliseum instead of Rexall Place, oh well.

I still like the (w)Rek Room, sounds catchy, implies danger, what more could you ask for?

Actually, I'm not really here yet.
I only have time to lurk for a few minutes once in a while. By the end of next week I should be able to take a few days to TRY and get caught up.

BTW - Has anyone suggested "Rx" (pronounced 'rex') as a suitable nickname yet?

edit - "wreck room" is pretty good too.
