Mercedes Benz will not renew naming rights for Aints Garbage Dome

Recommended Posts

Since the lights went out and delayed the Super Bowl the last time it was played there, I think they should call it the Coleman Lantern Dome.

No way the lights going out could be a coincidence

Only visit to New Orleans was a work trip, and the city workers were on strike. Trash was piled up 20 feet high in places on Bourbon Street, but business was as usual from what I was told. Trying to find words for the experience, but toilet may be most appropriate.

Euro-centric joke but I think the Bounty Dome would just be perfect.

 

For refrence; this is a bounty bar:bounty.jpg

 

well, a roll of bounty paper towels could work too though, might have a better meaning since they can be used to dry up all those tears they shed for EVERY flag thrown against them, and then any time they play the Vikings.....  

 

:mmmhmm:

There's a reason blockbuster comedies don't fly out of Europe I guess. My American mind doesn't get it lol. Is it the billowy coconut fluff?? Help me solve this Euro-riddle

It's a refrence by name to Bountygate. Since I don't think Bounty is being sold in the US I added a picture of said product.

This isn't actually new information as a poster previously pointed out.

But despite what the facade on the building said, it was never the "Mercedes-Benz Superdome" anyway. It always has, and always will be simply, "the Superdome". Much like Lambeau Field, Soldier Field, and Arrowhead, the Superdome doesn't need any corporate naming rights because it's already cultivated its own identity through its longevity. Mercedes-Benz has no use in retaining the name rights to both venues in the same division when one is colloquially referred to as something else anyway.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium however, due to its relatively new status and cookie cutter design, has never had another name and has no identity of its own. That's the easy, and smart, route to go for Mercedes-Benz because even when decide to not renew their naming rights on Mercedes-Benz Stadium in whatever year and another corporation assumes its spot, people will still more than likely call it "Mercedes Benz Stadium" and as a corporation, that's what you want: brand recognition. Same reason Microsoft gets bent out of shape when broadcasters call the on-field Surface tablets "iPads". Mercedes-Benz will never get that with the Superdome even if they stay another 20-30 years. So please, go ahead and enjoy y'all corporate sponsor, it's definitely a good one. Just remember we still had it first. 😜

So much like every dome stadium that has come before it, the Superdome name will outlast any corporate naming they try to stick in front of or behind it. The Superdome went its first 36 years of existence without any corporate naming entity, it can easily go another 36+ years without one too and we're fine with that. There's a reason that every fan base that has a heavy presence traveling goes and circles the "@Saints" game on their calendar when the schedule comes out and it isn't because of the name on the side of the building. They drop big money on game tickets and hotels to come to that game because of the atmosphere, something that can't be bought.

P.S. And are these really the best name puns y'all can come up with? I assumed y'all were a more creative bunch than this, but y'all still tossing out the same stale jokes from the early-2000's. Then again I shouldn't be too surprised considering this is a state that made Jeff Foxworthy into a multi-millionaire. :lol:

Did that troll call MBS "cookie-cutter"? That's cute.

I mean it is. It looks just like every mall I've ever gone to. 🤷‍♂️

And it's quiet like the Sears stores in those malls too. 😴

Also, you can quote me next time, I don't bite... unless you ask me to. 😉

Well even though they had a home here, neither are technically from here, but we accept them since they're great philanthropists. 😁

Also I really enjoyed that article, thanks for sharing.

And speaking of outdated 2000's references, Jesus H. Christ. I wonder how Xzibit is doing these days. I hope he saved his money.

Doubt it’s anywhere close to Foxworthy’s, at least in actual devoted time spent. 

you should check out his philanthropy work with CURE Childhood Cancer and Camp Sunshine. As well as his work with the homeless.
