If you ever wanted your name (or your company name) on an arena and have millions to spend, act now as the naming rights are already being advertised for sale.

Looking forward to the final few games at Rexall. Hopefully the Oilers do something big like Montreal and Toronto did when they moved out the Montreal Forum and Maple Leaf Gardens. Bring back the Dynasty team and make a huge ceremony out of it.

I can laugh at myself. I post too much.


Tbh I used to take some issues with the blogger in question but enough people kept forwarding his stuff and its hard not to start appreciating his detail. Its like anything though. Sometimes you don't like a journalist but doesn't mean he doesn't come up with good stuff. Or vice versa. I don't think a pov other than mine exists which I agree with all the time..thats human nature.

Anyway he's a worthy read if I'm not.

cheers
I don't agree with your politics in this thread, but that, sir, was gracefully handled...it was pretty funny.

Jubilee musical was even worse.. like 2 hockey games worth to get in!

We should start taking bets on who nabs the rights, based on major corporations who don't have naming rights on a rink.

I'll guess Westjet. They're HQ'd in Alberta and might have something to gain from doing it.

I'd name the arena Fort Kickass.

But whoever mentioned WestJet has a good point. I think they'll get it. I wonder what they'd call it though.

Would be nice if one of the bigger oil companies in the region picked up the rights so they could keep it Oiler related for a name.

Then they could have shutdowns when the team is playing poorly

Wow, on Primetime Sports they were actually saying between McCowan, Brunt and Kelley Hrudey that they think the design is the best arena design they have seen since the soccer stadium in Quatar. Good to hear people in Toronto are even into this.

I can't stand McCowan, but I'd like to hear that conversation.

Yeah, he usually drives me nuts, I only really watch him when I'm busy doing some stuff on my computer and just put it on because it's easy to drown out. But I noticed they were talking about the arena so I payed attention for a few minutes.

Being that you only post a few times a month from the looks of things I'm honored to have elicited another. A wish for more posts from you.

I like the ring of Fort Whoopass. Kind of a play on Fort Whoop up (Fort Mcleod I believe).

I like the idea of WestJet picking it up. It makes sense on plenty of levels and "WestJet Centre" doesn't sound too bad.

Why wouldn't Katz just get Rexall on it though? I'm guessing he's locked into an agreement at current Rexall Place for several years still. Otherwise "Rexall Arena" or even "New Rexall Place" don't seem too bad.

during the first public consultation I had a dream about the arena (lol) and it was called The Ford Centre.

But I will officially guess Chevrolet instead. The Chevrolet Auditorium (Chevy Dome).
