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.

Kohl

American Champion Aircraft Corporation, located in Rochester, Wisconsin
Welcome to Lambeau Field Stadium and American Champion Packers field.

Miller Electric (Appleton, WI.)

Midwest Communications (Wausau, WI.)

Good Karma Broadcasting ( Beaver Dam, WI.)

Renew Energy (Jefferson, WI)

ReServe Interactive ( Delafield, WI.) ... Also maybe a deal on some of their software stuff if the Packers need or want any of it.

Rhinelander Brewery / Rhinelander Brewing Company (Rhinelander , WI)

Sportsman Channel (they got 5 head quarters, the administrative one is in (New Berlin, Wisconsin)
dedicated to hunting, shooting and fishing programming.

Van Holten's Pickles (Waterloo, WI) world's largest producer of individually wrapped pickles.

uffda udfa (19h) : Guion suspension upheld...lost for 3 games
uffda udfa (20h) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (20h) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI
Zero2Cool (20h) : Only thing that matters : 40 Yrd Dash: 4.54
uffda udfa (20h) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (20h) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : Aaron is done? Why????
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : If you liked "Tuesday's with Aaron" he's not doing it this year. He's done.
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : Tolzien being evaluated for concussion. What?
hardrocker950 (23-Aug) : wow... what a joke
dhazer (23-Aug) : Cheese heads are everywhere donot be sureprised ifor we are louder
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : And you're wearing a Ben jersey... sad!
dhazer (23-Aug) : Hello from Heinz field
dhazer (23-Aug) : Anyone else going to be at the big ketchup bottle of Heinz Field
Mucky Tundra (23-Aug) : TEBOW!
