I'm not against it, he's stumped up a decent whack and will probably become chairman eventually.

The fear has to be that Wiggy gets his moniker into the new ground. "The Stewart Milne Stadium" has a sort of inevitability about it

Top businessmen, of which he is one, are ruthless beings. Many are sociopaths and way lacking in full mental health. But we shouldn't allow them to feed their sickness. Their narcissism and their ego got them to where they are but fucked if a football club and thousands of fans should have to put up with a permanent reminder.

I don't see what's wrong with Aurora? It literally means 'a new dawn' which this is for the club and the double meaning of sounding like 'Don'! I would never vote for any name of a person or business. I hate stadiums that are named like that. Nothing wrong with honouring a past chairman, manager or player by naming a suite or even stand after them but the name  of the stadium has to unique like Pittodrie, Tynecastle or Tannadice etc.  :ultras:

I like it more than a more corporate name like "Costco Park" but not as much as something with hostorical relevance like Miller Park. (Named after Willie, not Alex before anyone starts feeling unwell!)

Selling the naming rights is basically what we did. By contributing large amounts of cash Cormack has effectively bought the naming rights so I don't feel that we've "missed a tick" as the mongs on Facebook are saying. The name is fine IMO. Much more important that we get the facilities and quality correct.

No he hasn't. Unless that was specificied in his investment agreement. Which would be weird. It sounds like we're honouring our future chairman. Which is weird. I doubt that the club hadn't considered naming rights though.

The fans are getting to name the pitches though. I think we should call one "Pittodrie, 6 miles East."

Can't work out if I like the guy, or he's just cringe. Seems to have a bit of a semi for the dhimmery too.

Well he would do. He was a presenter on Dhim TV a few years back.

Ach he's OK. I don't dislike the guy even though he's a very vocal happy clapper. I didn't realise he worked for Timmy TV though!

Richard Gordon worked for Rangers TV or some shit as well, did he not? Old Firm sycophantic wankers  :thumbsup:
It's a math class, the whole deal. Just like every math class, there's a clown in the front, and everybody hates this clown because he raises his hand, he's answering all the questions. What do we do? Move on. Just fucking move on, ready or not. He's deciding we got to move on, he knows his math, I hadn't even figured out about Santa Claus yet.
