    To me it will always be Ravens stadium and Oriole Park and the Castle.

    I seriously doubt UA are ever going to go bankrupt, let alone in 5 years.

    While I agree with you from a fan's standpoint, if "Fruit of the Loom" wanted to name my house with a big sign on the roof, and I'd get paid a million bucks for it...all I have to say is, "Can I get 10% off underwear too?" ... Bc

    Hello. Welcome to the board. Considering what passes for a topic worth debating these days, it's pretty obvious none of us can wait for football season to start.

    Kind of a strange thing to want to sponsor but hey if they want to pay then the Ravens would be stupid to turn them down.

    So far as I know, the only other team with their practice center named for a corporation is the Giants and their Timex Performance Center. Timex gets alot out of their ad dollar for that building, though. It gets mentioned during the local pre- and post-game shows, which I'm sure the UA Performance Center will be, as well.

    However, the Timex center is right across the parking lot from Metlife stadium and is visible from NJ3 and the Turnpike (western spur). The UA center is tucked back in the Ravens' complex, whose security seems to rival that of Calvert Cliffs. Won't be as "visible" as the Giants' one on an everyday basis.

    On Ravens gamedays, I'm sure UA will have a more significant ad presence the same way that Timex does on Giants gamedays.

    I wouldn't mind M&T one day carrying the name UA Stadium. I need to get my Ravens checking card before then, though. A discount on UA gear inside the stadium would be good, but you can just go down Curtis Bay to their outlet store and get that.

    I'm sure everyone noticed at the presser all the UA logo in between the
    Ravens logo.

    Millions are seeing it already. It will be everywhere Ravens stuff is.

    A coup for the Under Armor guy.

    The Terps were the first to use UA as a
    sponsor since he went there and got the idea for the products while playing
    there. UA is all over the place now.

    Personally I find the UA products to be of real high quality. I have a wardrobe full of it for my rugby and football seasons. Never been high on nike or addidas (by far the two biggest sporting products here in Europe).

    Re: The Castle has a new name

    LOL - UA going under? Not according to this. Plank is worth $1.05B and
    UAs stock is worth about $750M. Plank and the company have been written
    up by Forbes as one of the best.

    Here's a history of how he invented UA and note where the phrase "we must
    protect this house" comes from. Good old U of M where he played and note
    his teammate that said it.

    I thought Ray Lewis said it.

    I'm wearing UA shirt now and wore a hat to the pool today.

    The shirts are so comfortable abeit a bit pricey.
