    I don't mind the "Woodshed" but "Louisiana Pacific Coliseum" is horrible. They could call it the "L-Pac Coliseum" or something... Not a big fan of the Nissan idea. I know there big here and all but I just don't like it. Maybe we could all pitch in and call it the "GoTitans Coliseum"... I've got a couple mil burning a hole in my pocket.:lol:

    I'm with you Jeff.
    It makes alot more sense to me for Nissan to spend the ad money on something like this than LP or Adelphia. I bet Adelphia didn't hardly see any benefit from their sponsorship and I doubt LP would get much either based on increased sales. However, automotive companies spend millions each year on commercials and Nissan would get pub everytime the Titans played and even on Sports Center when they showed highlites. Nationally televised games would result in a decent bang for the buck IMO.

    Nobody likes the "Cracker Barrel Coliseum"? At least the food would be better at the games.....

    However, if LP gets the deal, are they going to give away free wood posts to the fans? It would be scary to see 65,000 fans with 5 foot wooden posts. That would give incentive to the refs to help us out (We are going to need all the help we can get....).

    I'd settle for a wooden paddle -- or maybe a 2x4.

    L-Pac Coliseum didn't sound too bad. Hey, maybe it would make Pacman play better........

    Pacman's head is big enough as it is. He will think it is being named after him.

    whats the going rate for naming rights anyway ?
    didn't Adelphia pony-up about $30million over 30 years ?

    at a million a year ..... let me do some calculating
    let's say 62,500 attend every regualr season game
    if everyone agreed to pay an extra $2 per ticket ........
    that would amount to $1mill / year ...
    then the fans could hold a contest to select a name
