When no one wants to sponsor your stadium except Donut Kraze and Big Jim's Adult Emporium...

This shit with stadium name sponsorship is just crap. Mostly, it's just putting a corporate name on a building, but things like "Climate Pledge Arena" scream political dogma and should be prohibited.

But, politics has been sticking its ugly dick into sports for a while now, and some fans are abandoning sports with blatant league acceptance and endorsement of radical fringe groups.

The article linked in the OP doesn't explain why the stadium no longer has a sponsored name.

It was most recently named "New Era Field", sponsored by New Era Cap company. That company makes a substantial % of sports caps sold for professional sports teams, and used to have a production facility in Derby NY, which is about 20 miles south of Buffalo.

Since obtaining the naming rights, New Era has closed the Derby plant and outsourced those jobs to other companies. More recently, they took stimulus funding, and then issued over 100 layoffs to Buffalo employees as soon as the funding rules allowed them to do so.

Not surprisingly, local/regional politicians are rather pissed off at this turn of events, and decided to yank the naming rights for the stadium before even starting to look for a replacement sponsor.

Poloncarz criticizes New Era Cap for layoffs, 'their name should no longer be on the stadium'

The Tatanka Field would have been better. Bunch of stupid bison, buffalo, whatever. Stampede your way to a cliff. Bravo (clap, clap, clap)!
