NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- MetLife Inc. became the first of five major sponsors for the new Meadowlands stadium the New York Giants and Jets football teams will call home.

 

The deal was announced Monday, with no word on how much the insurance and financial services company will pay the teams for the advertising space.

 

A marketing expert said the deal could bring in $10 million to $15 million annually.

 

"They will be getting at least that much because they will be getting so much area inside the stadium," Deborah Cohn, a marketing professor at Touro College in New York, said Monday. "When people see their advertisements on TV, they will stand out."

 

Mark Lamping, president and chief executive officer of New Meadowlands Stadium Co., the teams' joint venture that is building and will operate the stadium, said there will be five major sponsors for the 82,500-seat stadium that is scheduled to open in 2010. The facility will be co-owned by the Giants and Jets, who both currently play at Giants Stadium.

 

As a so-called "cornerstone partner," MetLife will have the exclusive naming rights to brand one of the four main entrances to the stadium as well as one of the four scoreboards inside it.

The stadium will be named after one of the five sponsors, whose logo will appear both outside and inside the $1.3 billion stadium that is being build adjacent to Giants Stadium in East Rutherford. Those naming rights could have an annual pricetag of at least $20 million.

 

MetLife also sponsors three blimps for sports events and television coverage of major PGA and USGA golf events, Major League Baseball and NFL games.

JetBlue Stadium could work well.

 

No. It's bad enough we have to share a stadium with the shitty jets and their piece of shit fans. Fuck the jets having their name in the name of the stadium, let alone going before BLUE. BLUEpuddlejumper is the only take on it I would accept.

Y'know, this pisses me off more than most. This past spring some bitch caused about $4,000 damage to my car. I'm still fighting, you guessed it, MetLife to get my fucking money back...

 

That's all I need when I'm watching a Giants game is to remind me of that little Snoopy fucker. Damn that piece of shit and his fucking blimp. I'd like to watch both burn endlessly.

That was me who said you look like him, and I stand by it.

 

I'd make a good coverage safety. I would say WR because once I have the ball in my hands I'm hard to tackle. Not so much speed as much as just hard to tackle. The problem is my nickname is stone-hands. Easiest passes bounce right off while a hard catch I'll grab.

 

I say coverage safety cause I'm a little guy and if VG came barreling at me the best I could do is a Sam Madison-style taking out his legs move.
