@wrwlumpy It is beautiful indeed! I hope the day never comes that we have to read “FED EX FORUM”, “KFC YUM CENTER”, or any other God-awful brand of advertising on our court.

Looking good after all these years and miracles.

@wrwlumpy Nice! “There’s no place like home”
AFH is its own brand. No way KU ever renames it with some megachain business.

Couldn’t we compromise just a little?
Allen Fieldhouse, Naismith Court & Nike Restrooms?

It’s the actual example of the Jayhawk fan sportsmanship pledge when we play the purple pussycats. We exit the arena quietly so cleaning crews can pick up a few things left behind.

Cool, enjoyed seeing the other facilities as well. Great soccer and track complex.
As for naming rights, as a Sox fan/Cub basher it always cracks me up that the Cubs have a stadium named after a major company, but don’t receive a penny for it. Wrigley did well on that one for sure and when he sold the team the Cubs should have played hardball with him and made him pay to keep his name on the stadium.

Easy fix for that. They get another big sponsor and credit a hyphenated, married name… hummm… how about “Wrigley-Doritos Field?” Yummy… imagine chomping on Doritos while chewing an old stick of Wrigleys? Or how about “Wrigley-KFC YumYum Field?” Mmmmm… deep-fried bird with chewing gum… nice combo!
If they can’t find a big corporate sponsor, how about they go back to one of their original park names… Weeghman Park or Cubs Park?
The million-dollar question: How many tons of old Wrigleys gum is stuck to the bottom of all those seats at Wrigley Field?

Great flexible thinking.
Sign contracts with all the petro shoes.
Politicians accept contributions from all persons and nations.
This may be the best way to diversify recruiting asymmetries.

Can AFH be rented out for wedding receptions? Just a thought… I’m already married but my goddaughter is looking for a venue…

Keep in mind with Memphis that they are not the primary tenants on their building. The Memphis Grizzlies are, but the CEO of FedEx is a big time Memphis donor (he offered any power conference $10 million per year to accept Memphis) so the Tigers are probably getting a pretty good deal on renting it out, if they’re even paying any at all.
