    Meh, I don't get the attachment to names of facilities that aren't exactly classics. Fenway Park? Yankee Stadium? Understandable. Old facilities with lots of charm and history. Jacobs Field? Meh. I would rather that the owner of the team be looking to maximize revenue. I would rather, too, that the name of the facility stay with a local company, one of the largest employers in the region. One of the big businesses that has stayed in NEO. I like this better than an Internet company sponsoring the name of the team, then getting a silly nickname. Frankly, I don't get why fans would not want to see the Q get a name change- all it makes me think of is abandonment, failed expectations, inability/unwillingness to sign your star players and years of rebuilding.

    I'm on board with this.

    Progressive has brought a ton to the NEO area, while Dick Jacobs was for the most past a mediocre owner until the Browns left town before selling the team prior to them losing a huge chunk of their market share.

    I feel like Edddie in Christmas Vacation.

    Every time I read the Indians are worth 500 million, I piss my pants and forget who I am for about half an hour or so.

    Casino Dan is too busy revitalizing Detroit and letting Cleveland fund it. Funny that everyone is realizing on this site Dan is part of the problem with the Cavs.
