Some Anti-Metaller Bigotry

See this matter of naming Landsdowne Road the ‘Aviva Stadium’? I couldn’t give a rat’s ass, as far as I’m concerned it’s Landsdowne Road, though I don’t really care if it exists. What bothers me is how easily people will get used to referring to it as the Aviva Stadium. The other day a friend of mine said he was going to see Megadeth at the O2. You’d think metallers would be a bit resistant to change of that sort, that they could continue to call it the Point, which is what it is. You’d be wrong: they’re impressionable sheep, like most of the population of this island.

    What ever happened to the long promised renaming of MSF? Did your deal with Axa fall through? Axa stupid question …

    The replacement name appeared in a flash of inspiration. Then a couple of days later I decided it was complete shit. So I’m glad I didn’t change it, but I’m not gonna reveal the replacement name so that I can use it in the future and pretend it isn’t the one I had originally decided upon.

    As for sponsorship, I floated the idea of Most Johnston Sincerely Mooney Folks O’Brien, but they weren’t having any of it, says I.
