My name is Roger and I approve of the name.

























Not really. I just wanted to say that.

This does make me consider that people who have friends named Roger could be up for confusion.

"I'm going to Roger's place, see ya later."


"But the Oilers aren't playing tonight!"

If Roger happens to be a loser, then things could really get confusing.

Not that a name really means much or anything.

Someone suggested RAD (Rogers Arena District) but that won't work when the arena is called Rogers Place

Another reason why it works that it's going to be called Rogers Place, is that it's not just about the arena. I know there's the all-encompassing name of Edmonton Arena District, but don't for a second think that Rogers didn't know that people will be saying 'hey let's go to Rogers Place for a drink.'

Oil is not kept in a drop silly... it's kept in a tank.

can't make myself care. names come, names go.
at least it's a company name and not a website. better his than rogers.ca arena

besides, with their association with the jays, rogers is used to putting money behind losers. it's a good fit in Edmonton.

I agree Rogers Coliseum would've been the best but I have a feeling they considered it but decided to go with "place" because everyone would just call it "The Coliseum" no one is going to call it "The Place".

Rogers just wants you to say / hear their name over and over and over over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over.

depends when you grew up.
I find I often still call Rexall the Coliseum, and most people know what I'm referring to.

rogers place, rexall place. same thing, really. I think people will only really hate the name if they hate Rogers.

Rogers Place? Not bad. I've heard worse.(AKA The Gaylord Entertainment Center lmao).

Skyreach Centre was the absolute best name imo ! I'm fine with Rogers Place tho .

I guess the "You Better Make The Playoffs Or We're Going To Burn This Mother Down" Arena didn't have the same ring to it.

So I was just wondering but will there be less tax dollars going towards the arena now or are they going to just hoard all the money? I haven't been able to read much on it so if someone could let me know that would be great!
