There are rumblings Jets Stadium might have a new name.

Neither team nor the New York-based insurance company would comment on the report.

The deal would be worth between $17 million annually, Sports Business Daily reported.


I am normally opposed to corporate naming rights on a stadium. However, with two teams in the same league calling the stadium home, it is fair to come up with a neutral name, particularly considering how brutal it was having the old stadium named after that other team for so many years.

The money will help the Jets. That is another major plus. Gang Green has an owner who has not been shy about investing cash he makes back into the team, opposed to other owners who look to line their own pockets.

It is thus I find myself rooting for a stadium to get a corporate sponsor for the first and perhaps only time in my life.
