Blah, all the corporate sponsorships are ruining the glorious names that once graced stadiums all over the country.
It'll always be Texas Stadium to me.
I hear ya but, its never gonna go back to the way it was. Sometimes you have to change with the times. I remember how much I hated it a few years back when every WR started going with the 11-19 jersey number, syaing to myself "if your a WR you gotta have an 80's number". But now its not a big deal. Times change, I hate the silly corporate names on these Stadiums as much as anyone, but I'm learning to accept it because its going to be like this from now on.
Its a business move, AT&T is shelling out ALOT of money to put their name on the stadium, so it would be kind of silly to not make that move if your not a business person...Jerry makes alot of money back in the process, and alot of marketing and advertising...Thats pretty much how its going to be for all new stadiums.

Oh believe me, i understand where this move is coming from. It just kinda sucks that owners are having to resort to corporate sponsorship to build stadiums. Really, i mean, it's like everyone is trying to swing a bigger.... fist.
There are far worse names. Ameriquest Field is lame but we all know it as The Ballpark in Arlington. I wouldn't blame Jerry for making the move. Whenever teams name stadiums, I always think of the stadium names in Baseketball.
