At least some people have common sense these days, you could never have any credibility at an Ashes test in 'The MacDonalds Cricket suoerbowl'... could one?

How about 'The National Coal Board Homefire Stadium' that would be OK for the Ashes.

I'm not sure that this particularly represents "common sense".

Commercial sponsorship has become part and parcel of sport these days. If it was a choice of my club (Gillingham FC) going out of business or the ground being re-named the Poundshop Priestfield Stadium (I tried to keep it realistic) I'd go for survival every time. The ground is currently sponsored by a local Building Society, but frankly no-one ever refers to it as the KRBS. The Emirates is a grand name for a grand stadium. What's the fuss?

7000 new seats but 10 years to build. I take it everything will be done by hand. No power tools or cranes etc.

"7000 new seats but 10 years to build. I take it everything will be done by hand."

At that rate of progress my missus assumes that I am carrying out the work.

The dagbladet stadium... No, that doesn't work for me.
