Signage Dispute In Nashville At Former Adelphia Coliseum

A dispute has risen over a sign with the words "The Nashville Coliseum" on Nashville's pro football stadium that
would cost taxpayers at least $300,000 and would be a short-term moniker only, according to the Titans. The facility was formerly called Adelphia Coliseum. ''We don't think it's a good investment,'' Steve Underwood, the team's general counsel, told The Tennessean, adding the team is shopping the naming rights to corporations and that Nashville's investment would be short term.

Adelphia Business Solutions, which paid $2.5 million a year for signage, had its name removed from the facility in August amid the company's
financial problems and bankruptcy. The Titans are trying to sell naming rights to another corporation.

The Metro Council voted to explore calling the stadium Nashville Coliseum until the team sells naming rights. Its name now is simply ''The Coliseum'' and the city would have to pay the cost of placing the sign on the stadium.
