They should go cutting edge and get two sponsors, Rogers Place, brought to you by Tim Hortons just roles of the tongue like a puck off Hemsky's stick.

I'll be calling it the Oil Tank.

I think that should be a thing.

I agree.

However, it is well within the rights of an Edmontonian to see something like this as exhorbitant waste and to speak out against it.

Again, for me it's awesome. As an out of towner I don't pay for it, but get to enjoy it when I go to games/concerts but I can totally see why people would be pissed about it.

K, answered my own question
The Universiade Pavilion: that is the real name of the Butterdome. From Google not very in depth investigation.

There is no reason Oilers fans or anyone need call the Roger's Place, Roger's Place.

It's appropriate for what we've been doing for the past 5 years.

I was in there twice a week doing track and field in Elementary School going on towards Junior High. I had no idea that its name wasn't just the Butterdome.

Mind blown.

It really should be Rogers Coliseum.

So we'll have Rogers Place and Rexall Place. Lol.

Replacement - Rogers Rink isn't bad.

I've actually never asked or inquired about this. Is Edmonton knocking down Rexall? Or keeping it for Oil Kings/other sports/concerts?

Ya, but it actually looks like a piece of butter. I guess the natural name would to call Roger's place the Oil drop. That is what is is suppose to look like, not a tank.

The oilers suck at providing value for advertising IMO. We did advertising with them. For a small business we paid/still pay $39000-$42000 per year. In top of that the season tickets are over $12 000. We are canceling for the upcoming year. Return on investment is not there IMO.

Yeah, Rogers Coliseum would be the best.

Also, I haven't read the whole thread, but are they actually calling it Rogers Place, or is that just one of the options being speculated?


EDIT - a 2 second google search gave me the answer. Kinda lame decision, but whatever.
