Official - Little Caesars Arena

Recommended Posts

Even if you're going to go with Little Caesars, I feel like there's more creative avenues than Little Caesars Arena. Little Caesars Center, or Little Caesars Stadium, or Little Caesar Colosseum all flow off the tongue better. I feel like dropping the "Little" off the name (which is one of the likely directions the nickname will take) sounds more organic this way too. Caeser Stadium. Caser Center. Caesar Arena. The last one just doesn't flow like the first two.

That's what I've been saying all along.. Takes the money out of one Illitch pocket and puts it in another.

Little Caesar's Coliseum.

Illitch makes more money by one of his companies paying the naming rights to another of his companies.

If they have to use the company name they should have gone with Little Caesars Colosseum. ;)


LCA --->The LICKA ----> pronounced "LICKER".

Yeah...there's a problem with that...this is right across the river:

B9315880471Z.1_20150115164843_000_GAB9MF

We're gonna have to call it the LCA or give it some other nickname.

That's sports in 2016. It will only get worse with increased sponsorship involvement (e.g. sponsor logos on jerseys, etc.). I guess i don't really care. If this helps our ownership continue to remain financially solid and able to provide this team with all the financial backing/resources needed to continue to run one of the best organizations in all of sports....then I'm okay with it. I do like the above suggestion of just calling it the Caesars Center though.

True - just that we expect more is all.

Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI might be the only pro sports facility not whored out once the Joe is demolished.....To me - that says alot.

Soldier Field in Chicago...yes renovations were done, but the original facade still remains

I know, how dumb we are for preferring the name reflect the culture, history, or people of our great city instead of acting as an advertisement for sub par pizza. Perhaps we should build an alter to Mike Illitch in Campus Martius Park and ritualistically bow each time we pass since idol worship is now something to be proud of.

The arena is partially financed with public funds, so its not asking too much to have the name reflect the public, and not corporate, interest.

But that's just me. I'm a dreamer...who also played attention in civics class. Now if you'll excuse me, Living Colour's "Cult of Personality" just came on the radio and I need to go practice being slavish.

Could have been a lot worse I guess at least it's a local company but why not name it after the owner? Mr. I deserved that honor so much.

When you have the option of guys like Howe, The Captain, Lidstrom and of course Mr. I it sucks that it's just another bland corporate name. Really thought the Wings would be different than all the other s***ty sponsored name arenas.

Could have been a lot worse but it could have also been better. The new arena better has a statue of Yzerman infront. Hate all these new shiny over the top paid by taxpayers arenas.

It shows a complete disregard for the community, city, and fans. If Mr. I wanted to advertise his barely-edible pizza chain, why didn't he class it up a bit with this effortless move:

Little Caesars Colosseum?

Even Little Caesars Forum sounds better.

Fitting though, the name choice is as subpar as the product it advertises.

The corporate sponsor aspect is bad enough. But when you hear the words "little caesers" what is the first thing that comes to your mind? A rich history of tradition and a commitment to excellence? Hard hitting in your face action? Skill speed and agility that will leave your breathless?

No. The first thing that comes to your head is a ****ing gooey fattening greasy pizza.

Other than Jobing.Com Arena (which sounded like "jobber" to me), this may be the worst name of an arena in league history.

The sap center (shark tank) bb&t center (Florida) there's some other bad ones too (Verizon, rexall, Canadian tire)

Well fans will need to get creative and find something like the Sharks did. Almost nobody knows the "real sponsored name" of that arena because everyone is simply calling it the Shark Tank.
