San Francisco 49ers have a deal with Levis for 10 years and over $200 million. What are your thoughts about the Packers selling the naming rights to Lambeau Field to help generate some revenue?

_____ Lambeau Field
or
Lambeau Field ______


Mililer Lambeau Field? I dunno I just hope Lambeau Field stays part of the name.

Changing the name of Lambeau would definitely be the first sign of the Apocalypse !!!!!!

I'm all for any business to create revenue any way that is legal, but something tells me selling the naming rights would do more harm than good.

(Speaking for fans in other parts of the country) I would be a hell of a lot more excited planning a once in a lifetime trip to Lambeau Field, something just isn't exciting about planning a trip to say "Johnny Walker Red Stadium" in Green Bay!!!! Smile Smile

It's been pitched before. What they would do is keep the name of the "field" and put a paid name on the stadium. Like LAMBEAU FIELD AND MILLER STADIUM. Something like that.

It's cheesy, but profitable if the price was right.

I guess it doesn't really matter to me. I'll still call it Lambeau Field no matter what and I'm guessing most fans will too. All that will change is the media and the merchandising.

I loath the idea. That said the average fan (even a few hundred thousand of them standing shoulder to shoulder) can not stop the greed franchises get by selling their souls. So if they insist on sticking up a arse I would prefer Lambeau Field barf corp instead of barf corp @ Lambeau Field.

I want the Stadium name to be Lambeau Field.

If they want sell the naming rights to the field name, I guess as long as they're getting a lot of money out of it (and maybe willing to reduce prices on their stuff [-o< )


I looked up some of the business with headquarters in Wisconsin and they have some interesting one.

_____ Lambeau Field Stadium
or
Lambeau Field ______


Harley-Davidson

Sargento (cheese heads) Plymouth, Wisconsin

Total Sports Entertainment (there job is to make spots entertainment better... if they're willing to spend the money they would probably be a nice partner for the Packers to have)... though they're on the other side of the state. La Crosse, Wisconsin... then again they might be smart enough to not touch the name and just work with the Packers... it's a win - win... they get their foot in the door of the NFL.

Miller Electric (Appleton, WI.)
