Raiders Stadium Name Changed To Overstock.com Coliseum

I've always though that one of the best things about the Kansas City Chiefs' franchise is that they didn't play in a corporate named stadium like the Edward Jones Dome, University of Phoenix Stadium or something equally soulless. 

The Chiefs play in Arrowhead Stadium. That's it. Arrowhead. Stadium.

Well unfortunately for Oakland Raiders fans, their stadium just got a little less historical. The Raiders have changed their stadium name from what used to be the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum to the....wait for it....Overstock.com Coliseum!

SB Nation Bay Area has more info on the Raiders stadium name change:

In an effort to generate more revenue for the city, county and I'd assume the two teams involved, the folks in charge of the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum (the artist formerly known as McAfee Coliseum, even more previously known as Network Associates Coliseum) have apparently come to terms with Overstock.com to rename the stadium either Overstock.com Coliseum or O.co Coliseum. Overstock.com is changing their name to O.co and will likely use that name at the Coliseum at some point in the near future. The deal is worth $7.2 million over the course of six years.

O.co Coliseum? That is just terrible. Again, I'm glad the Chiefs haven't done this to Arrowhead Stadium, despite mentions of corporate sponsorship coming up in recent years.

With that said, I really just want to get back to sipping on my Bud Light, hop on over to the gas station to change my Valvoline motor oil and grab a Snickers while I'm there.

I know we can come up with a better name than the Overstock.com Coliseum. What should the real name of the Raiders stadium be?
