    Default Goodbye ACC; Hello Scotiabank Arena!

    http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/a...a-next-summer/

    So, this place our Raptors call home will no longer be known as the ACC starting next summer. It will now be known as the Scotiabank Arena.... and all I can say is NO. You take away the SkyDome from us & know you're doing this for the ACC? MLSE, I'm disappointed.

    I will forever call it the ACC... just as it is the Skydome or Dome.
    Just one year away... Bruno is almost here!

    you know the only reason it was ACC was because Air Canada was paying for it. There's nothing significant about the name lol

    Ad on their jersey and now this. Sigh. It is what it is.

    Speaking of ad, if i buy a Raps jersey, would it have the dumb Sun Life Financial ad in it? because i'm not buying a jersey with an ad in it.

    Yeah this was my feeling too. The ACC is just another corporate sponsorship and thus I shouldn't have any feelings of loyalty for it...but I'll still use ACC but not out of spite, just laziness.

    And I still call it the Skydome.

    The ads are only for the jerseys worn by the players, not the consumer product.

    Not sure if "going to the ACC" rolled of the tongue initially but it sounds smooth enough now. What will the new short form be? "Going to the Skosh"? "The SA"? Maybe "the Bank"?

    How many "Scotiabank Arenas" are there now? Lol Isn't there like one in every province now?

    Change doesn't take place until July 2018, so all of next season will still be ACC.

    Oh, and its for $800M over the next 20 years?!... that's not bad cash at all, damn. Hopefully it get reinvested back into the Clubs.

    $40M/year is the most in the World for Arena/Stadium naming rights. Can't fault MLSE for saying "Oh ok, fine". Lol

    As someone with Scotiabank, I do wonder what the hell they are doing with my money though?! Lol

    Air Canada has never come across as corporate to me. I know it's an Airline, but "Air Canada" always sounded more like a broader name than that. Plus, people started to call Vince Carter "Air Canada" for his dunking ability.
