Too bad it will be corporate. I'd like to see it named Valhalla.

They're not going to bother trying to hit it, they only want to score quickly with as little effort as possible.

The advantage of US Bank Stadium is that it pairs nicely with TCF Bank Stadium, so we would have the East Bank and the West Bank.

I would absolutely throw a couple hundred bucks at a Kickstarter/whatever for naming it Valhalla.

Other.......I want something less generic, or if it HAS to be generic and corporate-sounding, then I've always liked Pillsbury to be part of the name, so something like "Pillsbury Field", "Pillsbury Palace" or "Pillsbury Center".

Knowing where it is is 90% of the battle, and I personally would LOVE to have a giant "G" to use to locate it! (same goes for the football stadium ;) )

Why not spread it around a bit?

For example:

SuperValu (for) Vikings (isn't) BestBuy (for) Land 'o Lakes Stadium

if 3M takes the naming rights, could we collectively start calling it the 4MP Stadium to drop one of the M's and loose the redundancy in Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium... that's a mouth full! It could be shortened even more by calling it the 4M

Yes, that is very clever!

If only we could get four sponsors to agree to share the naming rights, and also get the Vikings to admit their wrongdoings and let the metro area make fun of them on their own building, then we're golden!

They could just name the field like they do now. It could be 3M field at Valhalla stadium. Or better yet, Nordic Ware field at Valhalla stadium.

Nordic Ware Field at Valhalla Stadium would be the most awesome outcome.

Since "X Stadium" probably has to be corporate:

Nordic Ware Field at Goldy's Locker Room [Stadium]?
