Could this ever happen for a sports team?

    In our current times of big corporate sponsorship and naming rights (Which I can't stand. The names of stadiums lose their charm when it goes from Candlestick to Pac-Bell Park. And do I really need every word or play sponsored by Verizon or whatever?) could one of those mega bucks companies start and name a team after their product?
    The Chevy® Chasers.
    The new Denver Ford Broncos™.
    Milwaukee Miller Brewers™.
    Bud Light Buckaroos®.
    The Nike Runners™
    The rock band Kiss just bought an arena football league team.
    Could they rename them The Kiss™ of Death?

    I hope it doesn't happen but wouldn't be surprised if it does or already has.

    The name of the arena foot ball team that Gene simmons bought is called "The Kiss". How lame is that? I agree with you 100%.
    when I was growing up college football bowl games were so much simpler. The rose bowl, sugar bowl, cotton bowl, orange bowl etc..... Now they have the Verizon wireless bowl, tostitos chips bowl, .....basically any company with money gets a bowl named after tham and the teams that play in them dont deserve to even be in a damn bowl game with a crappy record of 7-5 or even worse. Bowl games have become the worst for corporate marketing schemes. I was much happier when it was the simple bowls that everyone knew and looked forward to......now we get to watch two lame teams fight it out on a prime tv time slot to see who wins the damn Chick-fil-A Bowl......boring!!!

    I'm still waiting for:
    The Ty-D-Bowl (Ad promo: Get flushed this New Year's Day!)
    The refs would dress up like this guy:

    The Pot Bowl (Live from Seattle!)
    Dude! It's 4:20 and it's about to start, dude!
    Pass the lighter over here man!
    Ffffffffffffffffff!

    I find it very ironic that this subject is brought up by a fan of the only team in the NFL that was named after a "for profit" company.
