This being a project when they had a major announcement, presser, party at Mercer, for putting the 2 placard signs up at the arena location.

tbh this kind of stuff just feeds the impatience and especially when timeline for even getting a shovel in the ground is indefinite. Other than the little bit of soil and substrate sampling that they've done.

Is Rogers currently looking to set up a Western Headquarters office?

Hearing from good source exact new #Oilers arena name will be Rogers Place. No big surprise as 'Centre' and 'Arena' spoken for. #NHL #EJLive

We will call the district The Neighborhood and there will be a giant banner of this:



(I realize the difference between Rodger and Roger)

I feel so happy that my city built and arena, gave it to a billionaire who already was making money and is getting truck loads of new cash from a new outrageous tv deal and now the Arena is named after a company that screws it customers up the rump when ever possible. Yay!

Couldn't they have picked a more unique and less generic name? Like Roger's Wintergarden?

Rogers Igloo, Rogers odd looking shiny UFO, Rogers Pork Chop. Rogers apostrophe.

nobody would forget those names.

Everybody will confuse Rogers something or other names on a regular basis.

At least make it memorable.

Palace works.

This as well. At least have the name signify the Arena build in someway instead of being entirely generic.

Many soccer clubs have stadiums that have unique names which hold value either to the club itself or to the fans, so what they do when, inevitably, getting a corporate name plastered on it is " Corprate Name at Name Stadium" which in this case would translate to something like "Rogers Place at Edmonton Coliseum"...Bring together the new and the old...

Rogers Place is the most boring name imaginable. Anything but that would be preferred.

It could be called, "The Spacefart Dingomaker," and I could care less, just as long as the thing gets built.

I'd like something like Mr. Magoriums Wonder Emporium. I think it would fit this team.

What are some names that people want?

The Rogers Rig is the only one I actually like. People would simply call it, "The Rig."

I'd prefer that name. At least it's stands out and won't be confused with any other the other handful of Rogers buildings. We're spending millions on constructing this amazing new facility and then are going to let it be named something that people in other cities won't even be able to differentiate and identify as "the Edmonton one"

Katz decision making at it's finest. Money trumps everything. I'm very disappointing they are letting this go through.

No matter how much they spend to 'officially' name this building, it will always be an apostrophe to me.

Too bad it has to have Rogers in the name but c'mon we can call it whatever we want.



Going to the ' for a home game tonight.
Any concerts at the ' ?

Just realized, this might be a comma.
