    I just took a tour of the place recently. It may be 23 years old, but the insides of the place look brand new. The place has tons of spaceous new club areas, the Dolphins locker room is huge, and the luxury boxes are all up to date. They actually transformed the old batting cages into an exclusive club for celebrities like JLo.

    The only thing that is really out of date at Joe Robbie are the seats, which are beginning to fade. But otherwise the place looks just as new as the stadiums built this past decade. I really don't know why the NFL is complaining, unless it really is about the rain on the Super Bowl guests' precious heads.

    Actually that's just four tickets I picked out to scan. I went to like 20 games at Joe Robbie/Pro Player in the 4 years I lived in Miami.

    They don't during football games.

    Notice the lack of baseball lights in the end zone sections next to the scoreboard in the exhibition game photos. When were those added?
    I think they were added when the Marlins started playing in 1993. I'm guessing they don't use those lights for football games--perhaps it is too easy to lose the ball in the lights.

    I actually like the field box setup as it was for the 1991 exhibition game as opposed to what it is now. It looks a lot more natural and flows with the regular grandstand better. The field box seats they have now look a little more disjointed.

    a building is diffrent from a ballpark or a team rich with tradition. and some buildings it dosent matter they are just office buildings. most of them are named for the majority owner of the building and they became pretty famous with their respective names. the chryster building, metlife, the citi corp building. but some that have a history its the same concept. if some one came and remamed the empire state building something off the wall like doritos tower. tell me there would not be riots on the streets of manhatten?

    Well thats the thing, the Yankee name itself holds as much value as a cooperate name and entity so you're fortunate enough to have a park that doesn't have to change names all the time. With that said, if the Yankees were not making as much money or struggling for a very long time, I can promise you the Steinbrenners wouldn't think hard and long before signing a naming rights deal with some large cooperate sponsor.

    And like Korean said, its all about the money. When you yourself buy a team and or a stadium then you can call it whatever you want, until then this is America and its a free country and owners have a right to name their park whatever they want.

    Every business is about making money. Show business is business and MLB is part of the show business.

    As in "Wednes" and "Fri" and "Sun"?

    The funny thing about "University of Phoenix Stadium" is that the Cardinals played for a long time in a college stadium. They finally got thier own stadium, and it gets named after a online college.
