How long before the Dome will be referred to as Jihad Stadium? Will the Bombers be allowed to play there?

I may be demonstrating my ignorance here, but don't many people from those parts look forward to having virgins when they die? ;)

Anyhow...

It's not the worst choice for naming rights. At least it will be a little fun with the name, rather than a corporate type (The JLT cup being a good example of a bad naming rights sponsor, what the hell is a JLT?)

That said, renaming a stadium "Marvel Stadium" would have been a good idea for either our one or Adelaide after their redevelopments, where people can "marvel" at the new stadium, whereas docklands is probably due a facelift soon.
