    I am telling you from someone who works in a corporate environment there are goods and bads of putting your name on a stadium. Companies like LP and Adelphia do not have anything to lose by going into the market for the name of stadium. Nissan does. So the Titan becomes a "Titan's" truck I could just imagine the PR nightmare this would start.

    Sounds good to Titans fans but that is about the extent of it.

    I agree.
    However, I have heard that they really want to bring either a Senior PGA tour event back to Nashville, or even a PGA tour stop. They have been the title sponsor of what used to be the Los Angeles Open at the Riviera Country Club for years (since they were HQ'd there).
    That may be where they want to put there money.....or not...just something I had heard. May or may not be the case.

    Today's Tennessean said the going rate is $2-7 million/year and estimated the LP deal would be in the neighborhood of $4 million/year. Adelphia was paying $2 million/year. Here's a graphic of recent deals:

    I guess they waited until drafting Vince Young so they could demand a higher price...
