    Rose Garden Naming Rights Sold to ODS/Moda?

    1080 the Fan's Isaac Ropp is reporting, and there is now reportedly confirmation [Note from Tim: I haven't found confirmation yet], that ODS (now Moda Health) will be purchasing naming rights to the Rose Garden for 4.2 million dollars per year:


    Apparently the name will be something along the lines of Moda Health Garden, Moda Health Arena, etc.. etc.. but that's all speculation.

    I'm pretty ambivalent to the change. I would have posted this in the fanshots but it wanted a link or a quote or an image, and I had none. So here I am, filling word count, so that when this goes front page I can get some props.

    So what do you guys think? Hate it? Love it? Don't care? Will call it the Rose Garden regardless? Will help prevent injuries through karmic forces?

    Let's hear your ideas on how to incorporate the "Moda Health" name into an arena name that doesn't suck!

    Personally, i, your Blazer cohort, Commontongue can assist...

    How about " Healthy Garden" or " Lillard Land " or " LaGarden" , RoyVille perhaps. Then there's my personal favorite, " S.O.B."  Save Oregon Basketball !!  

    I am a fan of our new roster playing with and for eachother.

    First of all, none of this is confirmed and is being reported as "the organization denies it but we don't believe them". Which is basically tabloid style journalism and pathetic.

    That said... it would actually be a good business move on the part of Chris McGowan and Paul Allen to get 4.2 million more revenue per year. Most of the bigger market teams have sold their naming rights to businesses. I'm only slightly conflicted because I do like the name Rose Garden and it would kinda stink to call it the Moda Health Arena especially if it's the same building we know and love.

    Yeah I'm not going to call it the Moda Health Arena, don't think anyone other Blazer fan is. Money is great, but you can't sell the naming rights to the godda*n Rose garden.

    I am a fan of Raymond Felton. Haha, seriously though I'm a fan of Batum's Lobs and JJ's Slams.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
