    $6 million for 4 years, that sounds kinda cheap for naming rights??

    And you thought Monster cables were overpriced? Wait till they have to start paying for the naming rights!

    well the Giants have moved to PacBell park, and the 49ers are a shell of their former selves, so the pricetag shouldn't be astronomical.

    But yeah, now you know what you pay for w/ those cable prices [​IMG]

    Here is the new team mascot.

    That is pretty cool. I met Noel Lee about 10 years ago when Monster was trying to really get into more of the mainstream stores. He was doing the product training himself. Nice guy ... good products ...

    I'll bet an A/B comparison of Monster vs Candlestick will show no appreciable increase in tonal performance....

    However... "Vince Maskeeper Park" - that would sound awesome with his cabling !

    I am so sick of arenas, stadiums and ampitheatres getting named by big corporate/product names.

    Here in Sacramento we have "Sleeptrain Ampitheatre" (Which has changed names a few times in the 5 years its been here.)

    I saw Iron Maiden last year and Bruce Dickinson was clowning on the names of the venues they had been to in the States. It was funny and pathetic cause he was right.

    Im not even a baseball fan. this is a tradgedy. places being referenced in song will be lost forever.

    yes, now we know where the extra $ a foot of cable goes too!

    It was Candlestick for 44 years

    this is as bad as changing Comiskey Park

    Well, Network Associates Colleseum and Petco park certainly aren't much better names, in fact they might be worse.

    It hasn't been candlestick park for me for awhile...it was 3com park after that.

    I really don't like this trend either, but hey its a form of advertising for these companies, even better if you can get your name referenced in a video game or 2 to go along with it.
