Mall of America Field vs. HHH Metrodome[edit]

Seems like this was changed without discussion a while back. "Mall of America Field" refers literally to just the field; i.e., the playing surface. It is not the name of the stadium itself; those naming rights still belong to the city and it is still the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. Unless we want to change this to a "NFL playing surfaces" template, we should go by the name of the stadium, which also reflects the title of the article about the 'Dome. -llamapalooza87 (talk) 18:18, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

the dome is called by the Vikings for nfl games MOA Field that is why it should be called MOA Field on this template and other things related to nfl stadiums if you want to use full MOA Field at HHH Metrodome but team uses moa field not hhh dome as it name. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 207.225.131.141 (talk) 19:29, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

Candlestick Park vs. Monster Park[edit]

  • If anyone objects to Candlestick Park being designated Monster Park please notify me before changing it so we can discuss it. I believe based on 99% of the public calling it Candlestick Park and the fact that it will permenantly revert to Candlestick in 2008 are together more then enough justification for it to be labeled as such on this infobox. No one save a few national broadcasters and the 49ers front office refer to the park as Monster Park. To the public and the city council of San Francisco it is Candlestick Park and they would search for it as such accordingly (Mind you it is a public stadium). Gateman1997 16:25, 22 August 2005 (UTC)
  • I don't know how much attention this entry will get, but I am curious as to whether the Louisiana Superdome should have been removed from this template. The structure may not be hosting any games this season, but it is technically still the New Orleans Saints' home field. I don't object to adding the Alamodome and Tiger Stadium, however. Any thoughts? RPIRED 22:18, 21 September 2005 (UTC)
  • I believe it should be removed for this season as officially it's been determined that the Saints will be playing home games in the other two stadiums, not the Superdome. Once it's determined whether the Saints will return then I think we can bring it back.Gateman1997 23:18, 21 September 2005 (UTC)


Monster Park The offical name of the park is monster stadium until 08 then you can change it back to candlestick I realize most fans don't like it the name but we should have a universal standard of the offical name of the stadium otherwise people can say that most people call stadium x: K park so we should leave it as Monster Park as all other stadiums are called by their offical names I am going to switch it to that. I am curious you state it is a public stadium so the city or city agency must have approved the deal with the company in the first place. I know voters approved a referendum was it in 04? to change it back, but as of now it is Monster Park just what was once Oakland Colisuem is McAfee Coliseum Smith03 02:19, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

  • That's the intersting thing though, it's official name according to the city is Candlestick Park now.Gateman1997 06:17, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

sfgov.org calls it Monster Park Smith03 23:31, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

I was referring to the citizens. According to the vote the majority of the city now refers to the stadium as Candlestick Park. Monster Park is a formality for completing the contract signed with the Monster Cable Company. But for all intents and purposes the stadium is Candlestick Park once again. Should not the name be what it is most commonly call and is for all intents and purposes officially called? Gateman1997 00:02, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

No we should have the same rule for all stadiums otherwise people will make statements that such and such stadium is called by "most people" this instead of the offical name. In 2008 the stadium will be once again Candlestick Park until than it is offically and legally Monster Park. ( I am not crazy about the name Monsterpark but that is what it is) Here in the Twin Cities alot of people call the Metrodome the Humpydome or Homerdome or the Target Center the Discount Center or Xcel Enegry Center as the X. So should thoes names be changed on the templates. The vote in 04 simple stated that the name would go back to candlestick park in 08 once the naming rights deal was overSmith03 00:24, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

RCA Dome vs. Lucas Oil Stadium[edit]

I am reverting the template back to RCA Dome instead of Lucas Oil Stadium because even though the 2007 season is over, the new stadium has not yet been completed and the old stadium will not be demolished until the new one is completed. Ironically, there is more basis now for changing Monster Park back to Candlestick Park (since it's now 2008 and, according to the discussion above, Monster Cable's naming rights have expired) than for changing Indianapolis' stadium. The template should NOT be changed to Lucas Oil Stadium until there is a DEFINITE opening date; if it's not ready for Opening Day, it's possible the Colts will open the 2008 season at the RCA Dome. --RBBrittain (talk) 01:06, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Not quite. Candlestick won't be renamed until the contract with Monster Cable expires in September. However according to city law at that time it will revert to Candlestick Park permenantly. Gateman1997 (talk) 01:14, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
Not quite about the Colts possibly opening at RCA, the RCA Dome will be demolished after the final convention in April. Lucas Oil will be complete. Plans announced for RCA Dome demolition HoosierStateTalk 21:26, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

Rogers Centre[edit]

According to both the Toronto and the Buffalo media, the Buffalo Bills will play one home game per year at the Rogers Centre. The commissioner stated that the Rogers Centre would be the first home venue in Canada. Johnny Au (talk) 02:27, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Exhibition stadiums?[edit]

Should regular neutral-site exhibition stadiums, such as Fawcett Stadium, the Aloha Bowl and Wembley Stadium be listed in this template? J. Myrle Fuller (talk) 20:33, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Probably not. No other leagues are doing this at this time. Gateman1997 (talk) 00:43, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Table[edit]

That new table is not very good. It isn't collapsible and it causes a reference error.Cptnono (talk) 23:30, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
