I agree with Jack. The Emperor deserves much more than a practice field.

Heinz Field should be renamed Chuck Noll Field. It'll never happen because of the money they receive from Heinz, but it should.

I understand the need to generate revenue, but I never liked the naming of stadia after corporations. I miss the "organically named" stadia like Three Rivers Stadium, Candlestick Park, Lambeau Field. They sound so much nicer than QualTechGadget.com Stadium. I might give Heinz a pass since that is a truly Pittsburgh business that's been around a long time and is part of the fabric of the city.

Great point Polt. Back in '01 I remember speculation that the new stadium might be named Iron City Stadium after the beer (or maybe our esteemed fellow poster). Thought it was a great idea.
