CFB Playoff pushing to make the Chick-fila bowl the Peach Bowl again


LINK

quote:

The Chick-fil-A Bowl is set to become a part of the six-bowl College Football Playoff rotation, beginning in 2014. It'll host its first national semifinal in 2017. The obvious issue: it's the only one of the six most commonly called by its corporate sponsor name, rather than by the name of a fruit or crop or activity or whatever. The Rose, Sugar, Orange, Cotton, and Fiesta are the other five.

the less corporate names for bowls the better.

Please make this happen. I'm fine with bowls being the Chickfila Peach Bowl, or the Capital One Citrus Bowl, but let's end the corporate names

All of those bowls except the Rose have a corporate sponsor in front of their name. Chick fil a paid a shite ton of money to rename the bowl. Is the bowl going to give back what's left on the contract?

I was part of a survey for the playoff system in Atlanta a couple months ago to discuss what we thought about it, what names to call the playoff and bowls, etc.

They asked us specifically about the CFA Bowl name and everyone hated it. You're welcome.

Well, I'm sure they only want to do it for sponsorship purposes. All State, or Capital One, or whoever won't pay as much for the CFB sponsorship if one of the bowls already has a sponsor in the name

A reasonable price to pay to be in the playoff mix.

Completely at a loss as to why this matters.

Is it nostalgia or some stubborn mindset to keep pretending sports and corporate America aren't 1 in the same?
