Help Name the Cowboys’ Stadium
By Toni Monkovic
Dallas Cowboys
http://fifthdown.blogs.nytimes.com/

Jerry Jones has been unable to sell naming rights to his new stadium because of the recession. The building needs a name, or at least a nickname.

Jones has proved to be a team player, helping countless opposing franchises by not winning a playoff game since 1996, so we ask readers to help him in return by sending suggestions in the comments section. Maybe we can settle on a nickname by Sunday night, when the Cowboys host their first regular-season game in the stadium, against the Giants.

When we held a similar contest in 2008 on Tony Romo headlines, the Giants proceeded to upset Dallas, Green Bay and New England to win the Super Bowl.

Matt Mosley wrote about the stadium for ESPN, and the headline says, “A Tribute to Excess.” But the article is more upbeat:

Jones could have saved himself some money by staying in the aging Texas Stadium, but that would’ve been way too safe for the former wildcatter from Arkansas. It was his vision to build the greatest stadium in the world — and he just might have pulled it off.

A few snippets from the article:

*Celine Dion played a role in the creation of the giant videoboard (although she not yet reached it with a punt).
*The players enter the field through a bar.
*The $29 Party Pass allows an additional 20,000 fans to have standing-room only tickets, swelling capacity to 100,000.
*”Until you see it in person, you can’t truly appreciate JerryVision,” Mosley writes.

Nicolai Ouroussoff, the architecture critic for The Times, was less impressed:

With a $1.15 billion price tag and a flying saucer-like form, the stadium’s design mercifully avoids the aw-shucks, small-town look that has become common in many American stadiums over the years. There’s no brick cladding, no fake wrought ironwork, no infantilizing theme restaurants that seem as if they had been commissioned by Uncle Walt for the Happiest Place on Earth.

Still, Cowboys Stadium suffers from its own form of nostalgia: its enormous retractable roof, acres of parking and cavernous interiors are straight out of Eisenhower’s America, with its embrace of car culture and a grandiose, bigger-is-better mentality. The result is a somewhat crude reworking of old ideas, one that looks especially unoriginal when compared with the sophisticated and often dazzling stadiums that have been built in Europe and the Far East over the last few years. Worse for fans, its lounges and concourses are so sprawling that I suspect more than a few spectators will get lost and miss the second-half kickoff.

In July, Richard Sandomir of The Times toured the stadium with Jones, who said:

“I could have built this for $850 million. And it would have been a fabulous place to play football. But this was such an opportunity for the ‘wow factor.’ “

Texas Toilet seems appropriate.
Romo takes a dump in there every year, when the playoffs start.

Well since they're looking for a corporate sponsor who will get naming rights, how bout "Tampax Stadium" or "Massengill Field" ? :noidea:

"Massengail Field" That one has got to make it onto the list.

What do you saw we narrow it down to 3 or 4 and vote. Then sent the winner to Jerry.

Please, God, let the low asking price attract a malt liquor sponsor. Nothing would make me happier than seeing Olde English "800" Stadium for the next decade.

That failing, I vote for the Texas Toilet.

Schlitz Field
Country Club Coliseum

Schlitz is close enough to Shit in pronunciation to add to the Toilet/Urinal theme.

And its a hot day here and Shitz Field, a little bit later in the broadcast we'll go down to the field and talk with Tony Homo and what the Cowbells will need to do to avoid choking this year, but before that lets talk about the hot topic of the day. Did Wade Philips fail to give a reach around to reach around to TO? And was that the reason for the turmoil here in Dallas? We'll give you that story and more after a word from our sponsors.

Extra points: Some of the best reader suggestions in the “Name the Stadium” entry were:

the Gazillion Pavilion, the Napoleon Complex, Giant Stadium, the Inferiority Complex, the Ego Bowl, Excess Arena, Jerassic Park and the Big Sty.

Readers also pointed out that it already has a nickname: JERRUHWORLD … We’ll have live updates and analysis from Jets-Patriots and Cowboys-Giants today. Stop by and add your two cents. (If 50 billion of you do so, it still won’t add up to the cost of the new stadium.)
