So that's where all the people who have ten years experience on six year old software are. Those guys can get jobs anywhere!

Actually, Nationwide sort of fits such a tour, and doesn't bother me so much. Like Great American Insurance getting the rights to the Reds' stadium: Great American Ballpark just rolls off the tongue.

I liked the original name of this tour, the "Ben Hogan Tour." Like all things, money changes everything.

It's a series of tubes.

That. Nationwide doesn't sound like a sponsor, it sounds like a description.

Agreed as well. It's not so much the fact that a sponsor exists. When it comes to naming rights, all fans really ask is a good name. (Except in cases where the name has been around for, like, 50 years running. Then they just want THAT name.) Nobody complains about the Nationwide Tour or Great American Ballpark. Those are good names. Nobody complains about Miller Park. Nobody complains about Busch Stadium.

Nobody gets into too much of a tiff over, say, Target Field or Reliant Stadium or Progressive Field. They're not ideal names, but they could be a lot worse.

When you get into, say, U.S. Cellular Field, or M&T Bank Stadium, or Lucas Oil Stadium, that's when the fans start getting pissed.

And God help you if you're changing the stadium name every year. Eventually the fans will just settle on a neutral name and disregard the sponsorship entirely, such as 'the Oakland Coliseum' or 'Dolphins Stadium' or how NASCAR fans refer to most races by the common name of the track (e.g. 'Michigan') and not the 'Heluva Good Sour Cream Dips 400' or whatever.

"Tears in his eyes I guess, as he lines up this last shot. He's got about 195 left. And it looks like he's got... about an 8 iron. The crowd has gone dead silent, Cinderella story, out of nowhere, former greens keeper now about to become Web.com Champion. It looks like a marac.. It's in the hole! It's in the hole!"

That's sounds stupid as fark.

Dude wins one US Open, all of a sudden they name a tour after him. I think it's too much, too soon.

Good one.

See, now this is going to get confusing when I have to explain this to my wife. She'll say something wifey like, "How's Tiger doing?" and I'll say, "This is just the web.com tour", then she'll think it's a video game and byatch about me playing too much xbox or something.
I have a hard enough time with NASCAR, "No Hunny, this is just the Nationwide Series", "Well what's the difference?" she asks. "Well it's pretty much the same drivers, same tracks, and same cars, only they are racing for a fraction of the money, and nobody watches or cares."

The difference is Danica usually has a hope of finishing within three laps of the leader on Saturdays.

The Winston Cup was better than the Stanley Cup. I mean, cigarettes are a much better sponsor than tools. They aren't even power tools. What the fark is this shiat?

It's one of those we've got 6 people with 5 years experience, 6 x 5 = 30, so we've got 30 years experience!
