[Discussion] NHL Sells Naming Right to Divisions

Disgusting.  Proof once again that Bettman doesn't care how much of a joke he makes out of the league.  Simply unacceptable; my Sportsnet subscription has been cancelled as I can not support this garbage by keeping the scumbags desecrating the sport employed.

BTW if anyone thinks this is temporary I have a 35-year-old Swedish LW power forward to sell you.

Question ... when the banner of the Division Champs are raised will they also include the sponsor in the banner? 

 

I am disappointed ... I was thinking that they change the name of division based on the sponsors.

 

Who doesn't want to call a division "The Bud Light Division" ?

actually... why stop here. 

Power plays should be called big mac attacks.

penalty boxes should be called noodle boxes.

Pucks should be called black twizzlers.

ice should be referred to as frozen dasani.

etc

It's definitely both parties involved, no question. 

if its a one-time thing, fine I get it, its a rough time for many industries. 

 

If its opening the door to billboards on skates thats another.

The MassMutual division has quite the ring to it.  Oh Gary.  Wonder when the euro nascar style jersey will be coming?

I suppose it could be worse.  Imagine if we were called the "Waste Management Division"?  :bigblush:

well if they teamed up with that portable washroom company Pit Stop maybe they could convince nascar  to go in with them to buy the coyotes.

the pit stop/waste management brought to you by nascar division.

I'm really surprised that Pfizer wasn't gifted a sponsor exempt division.

Getting my Pfizer vaccine next Wednesday.  I am a hospital chaplain and I think it is pretty awesome how the government down here works.

Thank goodness all those millionaires and billionaires could find a way to claw back some pocket change. 

Beautifully said.    Players love this too - anything at all to help them slowly pay-back 2/3 of this years massive paycheque’s.  In the end it’s us fans that have to put up with it.   Guess Bettman standing infront of a camera and saying “over my dead body” when questioned about would the league ever sell advertising on the uniforms (because adidas was given the first green light in history to put their logo on the new uniform deal) - really means “over my dead body unless we have a pandemic”.

 

Im still waiting for Bettman to drop dead - but it hasn’t happened yet.

Heffy sometimes I can’t tell if your just venting.   This is one point I’m with you on but shamefully I won’t be joining you on your hunger strike....it’s disgusting.   Bettman promised he’d not do this.   Now it’s happening.   I get the reasons - but my fear is that they won’t ever ever revert.   A new revenue stream and all.  Hope I’m wrong.   Would rather the players just sucked it up and got paid their share which is half.

I just hope we win the cup before it comes to this. Makes me sick.

One hundred percent serious.  Should have saved money by firing the scumbags who thought this was acceptable.
