Some possible naming rights partners? Quizno's. Arrow Electronics. Level 3 Communications.
As I'm sure you've noticed, any of these would be totally ridiculous. If I'm a football player, I don't want to play at "Jolly Rancher Stadium." (Yes, it may come to that.) I want to play at a real stadium with a real name, like one that honors our troops (Soldier Field), a past owner (Lambeau Field), a great American (Hubert H. Humphrey Stadium, which the Vikings occupied before US Bank Field was built), or our state (Georgia Field).
Last time I checked, the Packers and Falcons were doing just fine.
Why can't we have a name like that?
My idea? Pat Bowlen Field.
Pat Bowlen owned us for over 30 years. We won 3 Super Bowls during his tenure, and he was the mastermind behind the stadium itself. He paved the way to Sunday Night Football, and was a valuable contributor at the owner's meetings. He is also a generous philanthropist, investing thousands of dollars and countless time into our community.
He now suffers from Alzheimer's and is no longer able to fully function as an owner. What better way to simultaneously honor him and raise awareness for Alzheimer's than to name the stadium after him?
