Maybe LCP......Little Caesars Place.

Or

PPP. Pizza Pizza Place



As much as I hate the bland corporate names, I would actually like Pizza Pizza Place.



See my issue with anything pizza related is that in Michigan probably ten years back or so there was a place called Little Caesar's Caesar Land/Palace or something like that. It was a place for kids to play, kind of like a discovery zone or Chucky Cheese or what have you. So if they named it something along those lines that is all I would think of. :huh:

I don't think it would be Little Caesar anything...the whole idea of selling the name is to make money, not spend your own money on the name. Iltich would make no money by buying the naming rights from himself...

I like these:

Delta Centre

Meijer Gardens

Cadillac Centre

PNC Place

It was called Caesar Land and it was fantastic. A friend of mine had his 9th or 10th birthday there....it was awesome. It was the Little Caesar equivalent of Discovery Zone/Chuck E Cheese but way cooler...no Simpsons Arcade but still great none the less. Mr. I, being the great owner that he is, is entitled to that choice. Would you rather have new place called the Call Sam Arena??? Come to think of it, as long as Richard is on the photo, I could care less.

Get rid of the goal horn, it's too boring. We need something deep that annoys opposing fans like the hawks predators stars and ducks. Get rid of Karen Newman, she has always sounded awful and isn't Attractive as she thinks she is by the way she dresses. The "new" pa announcer who handles most of the announcements must go too, his voice tone is too high pitched for the job.

And for the love of god. Hey Hey Hockeytown needs to be either refreshed or retired. It makes me wanna sit down instead of cheer and be loud.

Without Budd Lynch we wouldn't have anymore Budd Lynch goals, oh yeah... :hehe:

OP, I'd like a copy of the goal horn mp3 to load onto NHL 12; although I don't remember if they let you set audio for goals or not.

When the Wings get a new arena, please do not sell out. Have a name that reflects the city like Joe Louis, not another arena named after a bank or a feminine hygiene product.

That is all.

No to Budd Lynch? Really?

I've never been to the Joe, but Budd is an icon.

Might as well dump Ken Kal and all are banners while we're at it.

I like Cadillac Centre, or GM Place, Wings can use it now since Vancouver is Rogers Arena.

I named the 4 things that I don't like about the Joe, there are a lot more things that I want to keep. Changing those 4 things would make a new arena not neccessary IMO. I go to a hockey game to watch hockey not to look at a building

I know they probably cannot do it but Caesars Palace would be fitting.

Gordie Howe Pavillion

Red Wings Center

Motor City Arena

JLA Memorial Auditorium

Olympia Colosseum

The Horn and absolutely without a doubt, the boards better make it over. I laugh everytime a national broadcaster or rival teams announcer comments about the "lively boards". They are the most important thing about the JLA in my opinion.

Thanks! You think if Ilitch likes it that he'd throw me some cash? :lol:

anyway, I like it and it kills two birds, not only does it have the Corporate aspect to it with the Cadillac division of GMC, it also celebrates the founding father of the city of Detroit...Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac. Not only do I see cars and trucks in the lobby, along with statues of great Red Wings of History, but a statue of Mr. Cadillac and a nice little history lesson of the city would be awesome!

PNC already has the hurricanes.

Maybe he'll throw a little Caesars gift card your way or something haha.

But I'm definitely for anything tht helps the image of the city of Detroit. And I hope our new arena can show class just the way the wings organization does.. Thus a "classy" arena name like cadillac centre sounds great.

I like Oldsmobile Place better. :cool:


I can only imagine the jokes people would make.. We're already considered an old team haha

My favorite thing about the Joe is that it's not named after some s***ty corporation. I know the new one will be, but I really loved the fact that the Joe was named after something relevant to Detroit's sporting history.

Yet another of the many reasons I love the Packers. Lambeau Field, without any chance of taking on a corporate sponsor. When the organization wanted to add the atrium and renovate the stadium, the county I (and Lambeau Field) resides in voted to raise its taxes to pay for it ($550 million to be exact), and the Lambeau Field name remains.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).
