    Monfried said Safeco would retain its 85-year-old brand name and continue selling policies through its national network of agents and brokers. He also said Seattle's baseball stadium would remain known as Safeco Field.

      How about The Mute.

      Oh man, here we go again. Another stadium rebadging. Of all the corporate names I liked Safeco and Wrigley Fields the best. They had nice rings to them and pretty soon they'll both be gone.

          "Mariner's Field."

          ... or maybe "New Kingdome."

          Then keep calling them Safeco and Wrigley. New Comiskey is still New Comiskey to me and everyone knows where I'm talking about when I call it that.

          I love that name. Corporate naming rights don't bother me when the name doesn't sound like a corporate name. Safeco and Enron never bothered me because I've never heard those names so they are on par with Fenway, Wrigley, Busch, Shea, etc. in my opinion. A word that means nothing but the title of the stadium as far as I'm concerned. It's the Minute Maids, PNCs, AT&Ts, Petcos, etc. that annoy me because they sound unnatural. I mean, "PNC?" That's not even a name. That's three letters!

          Which is why the new Mets ballpark will be "City Field" to me, because it will nothing to do with a bank and everything to do with the place it represents.

            Forgot that one. Yes it's a good one. Back when Jerry Buss struck a deal with Great Western to add their name to The Forum I thought that was kinda neat too since it was in effect, a great forum in the west that was aptly named. Some corporate names aren't half bad.

            Then, there's the Quicken Loans Arena.

                Him running over Coco Crisp on an ATV would be a lot less funny.

                  I never even realized that the Great Western Forum was a corporate name. Well it now ranks up there with Great American Ballpark as best corporately named facilities in professional sports.

                    I believe it was one of, if not the first, naming rights deal in pro sports.

                        Wilfred Brimley Field. It's got a nice ring to it.

                          How about Olympic National Park?

                          If the Mariners acquire Mussina next season or trade for him this year, they have some wild life as well. Perfect fit.

                              The Arco Arena in Sacramento (Kings basketball) might've been before GW, but they were definitely one of the earliest of the contemporary corporate sponsorship rage.
