Florida Atlantic sells stadium naming rights to a prison company

quote:

Florida Atlantic is expected on Tuesday to finalize a deal with The GEO Group that includes naming rights for the football stadium, sources have told OwlAccess.com.

The deal is believed to be valued at around $5 million, though the term of the contract is not yet known.

The GEO Group is a leader in privatizing correctional facilities.

re: Florida Atlantic sells stadium naming rights to a prison company
The privatization of prisons is a major problem in this country because those companies lobby lawmakers to pass laws that result in larger prison populations, which is just a dollar sign to them.

Those companies are fricking predators.

The easy one is, they shouldn't have committed a crime in the first place.

For the record, I don't believe that stance, but there ya have it.

May need to redo the FAU Fight Song:

We'll fight, fight, fight at FAU
There's riots in paradise
We'll fight, fight, fight at FAU

And on the FAU Owl message boards the prison jokes have already started:

quote:

Instead of giving away shirts, the FAU student government will give away striped prison jump suits


quote:

Team will walk onto the field with Fulsom Prison blaring


quote:

Have to wonder whether this will make it easier or harder to recruit football players with criminal records. If a player from a larger school gets arrested, can a judge order him to transfer to FAU?


quote:

The stadium will now be call the longest yard??..
