The Giants and Jets thought they had sold naming rights in 2008 to Allianz (ALV:GR
), but the financial services company's ties to Nazi Germany caused that deal to fall apart. Next, online dating site Ashley Madison
offered to rename the Meadowlands as AshleyMadison.com Stadium, though this was seen as nothing more than a publicity stunt. MetLife (MET
) had been paying $7 million a year as one of the stadium's four cornerstone partners before upgrading to this bigger deal.
