Could the New Home of the Jets and Giants be Named After a Site That Promotes Affairs?


The moral decline of our country never ceases to amaze me. Now it seems that a site that has gotten national attention for the fact it promotes cheating for those married and in relationships is trying to buy its way onto the new Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey.

TMZ has the report:

Meadowlands Stadium — the brand new home of the New York Giants and the New York Jets — now has 25 million reasons to endorse homewrecking … courtesy of the dating site for adulterers, AshleyMadison.com.

AM founder Noel Biderman sent a letter to the CEO at New Meadowlands — obtained by TMZ — declaring, “At this stage, we are prepared to make a preliminary offer … of $25,000,000 for the Naming Rights for a five-year term.”

He adds, if the stadium gets better offers, “We would be pleased to match any such superior offer.”

The offer (which works out to $5M a year) is pretty big, but it’s still below the average for other stadium sponsorships — Bank of America pays $7M a year to sponsor the Carolina Panthers stadium and FedEx drops $7.6 a year on the Redskins stadium in D.C.

I’ve got to believe the NFL, despite it always being about the almighty dollar, would step in and not allow this to happen. Then again, with the way our country is going – you never know.
