    I hate that they sell the naming rights. It will always be The Dome to me.

    Not both. That just sounds stupid: Rogers' Skydome.

    I don't think it matters much. It's Roger's building, they can call it what they want.
    What porno is your sig gif from?

    And I always felt that Rogers should have just renamed the stadium "Rogers SkyDome" instead of Rogers Centre. But whatever, I still call it the SkyDome.

    I'm totally fine with it being called the Rogers Centre. The majority of MLB teams have some kind of brand attached to their name these days, and as branded names go, "Rogers Centre" sounds better than the likes of "Minute Maid Park" or "US Cellular Field" IMO. If naming the stadium like this can in some round about way help improve the on-field product (revenue to ownership translating into increased payroll), even in some small way, then I am all for it.

    Trojan or Durex should buy the naming rights. The Trojan dome or the Durex dome.

    Rogers can name it whatever they want. All I care about is the product on the field.

    I've mentioned this before, but the problem here is that no one would ever call it 'Rogers SkyDome', everyone would just shorten it back to 'SkyDome'. I've actually been surprised by how many I hear say 'Rogers Centre', I assumed the SkyDome name would live on for a long time.

    I thought when they renamed it though, and still do, that Rogers Field or Rogers Park sounds much better than Rogers Centre. Rogers Centre sounds like a mall to me.

    It'd pretty much 50/50 for me as to which name I use for it. I thought I was going to call it SkyDome forever, but I've just found myself unintentionally calling it by its real name more and more

    Rogers Skydome would be best however it would get shortened to Skydome. Now Rogers field would have been better then Rogers Centre.

    Rogers Skydome would be great. Of course it'd get shortened down to just Skydome but we all know who owns the team so why would it matter? It's like the Air Canada Centre. It's always referred to as the ACC.

    The members of this forum do, but the very casual fans don't. The girls going to Taylor Swift and Justin Beiber concerts at the "Skydome" don't know who own it.

    Anything with the word 'dome' in it and people will probably eventually call it the Skydome again.

    Edit: Also Skydome is one of the best names for a sports venue anyways imo.

    I don't really see why it even matters, they're still paying to get in and use the place. Rogers isn't some insecure teenager who wants to be noticed. And if "casual fans" don't know Rogers owns the Jays they're not fans at all. It should be common knowledge. It's a major company, not some what's-his-nuts billionaire sitting in his mansion drinking scotch.
