Such a boring name. I'm not a fan at all, but meh, there's been worse. At least this project is finally moving forward after years of speculation.

That newest video is so unrealistic. There is not a single pickup truck in it and only a few seconds of snow. Also I got the impression from all the fear mongering negative media around the arena that it would be closed and boarded up during the summer as it is only a stupid hockey arena

They counted on corporate sponsorship as part of negotiations.

Katz maintains the naming rights as part of the negotiation and therefore the profits of selling such.

Hey Steven Franceschi…

I do some occasional stand up around town and sometimes I like to use my jokes from posts on here and sometimes test them on here. Today I was preforming a quick recording about 30 minutes ago at (removed location), and I used my Rogers ranch joke, and in the middle of the set some guy heckled me and claimed that I stole it off some kid on twitter. (pretty strange he was googling my jokes…or must of saw it on twitter.)

I know i'm coming off as a huge dork right now arguing over a stupid little joke on an anonymous forum and I'm slightly embarrassed writing this, because I know it's the internet and it's free reign. But should've at least asked me if you could use the joke. I know I sound like a real dumb*** right now but I got embarrassed today for no real reason, so I'm kind of peeved.

Nope, plagiarism is complete sacrilege in comedy. That's probably why I'm so butt hurt, it ruined a possible recording. Also, it looks pretty bad plagiarizing off a nerdy 15 year old looking kid.

Wow, that sucks. I don't watermark my GIFs, so it's kind of annoying when some knob on Twitter posts one and acts like they created it.

I know eh? You should watermark it in the corner, your stuff is quality man, also considering the time it takes to make a gif, it must burn.

Wish we could have sold our name rights to Playboy.

Then we could call it the Grotto.

Ignoring the fact that his is a money deal, not an effort to find a decent name for the arena.. why would they call it Skyreach?

Skyreach was nothing more than a short term holder(5 years) of the naming rights, not a historically relevant name in this history of the franchise(that honor would go to Northlands Coliseum)

don't feel like a dork. we get what you're saying. sucks to be made to look bad when you're the one who got the joke stolen.
When I repost a tweet or facebook comment, I always make sure people know where it came from. I never try to pawn the joke off as my own wit.

Haha yeah, too bad the joke went viral on his account, it would have been nice to use during a set.

Rogers Coliseum would have sounded much nicer, but the people at Rogers know that everyone would just call it the Coliseum.

The GMP has yet to be finalized, and I doubt its final price is what the city and Katz agreed to, so I find it difficult to believe construction is to begin in 5 weeks.

My overlords at Gateway Casinos have informed me that the baccarat casino is losing access to their parking lot on Feb. 14 for construction to start. And also to expect revenue to fall off the planet as a result.

Maybe that information is wrong and it's not going to happen that soon, but I just figured I'd pass along what I was told.

Now maybe they're working off of old information and it's not gonna happen, but I just figured I'd pass along what I was told.
That's only to remove part of Baccarat's parking lot. We might not see work on Baccarat for another 18 months.

AFAIK it's the entire lot.

The Baccarat is remaining open during the construction of the arena complex, there will be no work done to the current building (tear down) until after the new location is open (allegedly concurrent with the arena) probably closer to 36 months than 18.

Again I don't have a crystal ball and you are probably right about 5 weeks being too soon. But thats what I was told so thats what I posted.

At least Rexall was Edmonton Branded and original
Rogers Place? Really, that's so lame, plain, and insane that it's called this
