New Era Field no more: Cap company to end stadium naming rights deal with Buffalo Bills

  New Era Field no more: Cap company to end stadium naming rights deal with Buffalo Bills The Bills will no longer being playing in Orchard Park at a stadium named New Era Field. The cap company is pulling out of the agreement.“The Buffalo Bills and New Era Cap Company jointly announce that New Era has asked to be released from their naming rights and sponsorship deals with the Bills. The Bills and New Era are currently negotiating the details of this separation and the Bills are beginning the process of pursuing a new naming rights partner for the stadium.

At the end of Matthias Lilienthal's directorship, there was probably the largest stage in the city for the Munich Kammerspiele: In the Munich Olympic Stadium, the ensemble performed the opening ceremony of Toshiki Okada on Saturday. The play revolves around “a global event”, perhaps the Tokyo Olympics, which had to be canceled this year due to the corona pandemic. In the stadium, workers maintain the lawn for the event, but no one knows when and if it will happen at all. Only an ominous Super Mario, like the one from the video game, may know something. And while everyone is waiting, plants, birds and insects are conquering the stadium.

Opinion: As FedEx joins opposition to Washington NFL team’s nickname, it’s time for Daniel Snyder to do the right thing

  Opinion: As FedEx joins opposition to Washington NFL team’s nickname, it’s time for Daniel Snyder to do the right thing It's time for Daniel Snyder to do his part to help inspire the progressiveness the U.S. badly needs by ditching "Redskins" on his Washington NFL team.For years, Snyder — who grew up cheering for the team and purchased it in 1999 — has remained unswayed. By anything.

There are some parallels to real events and to Corona. The theaters were also closed for weeks, with no prospect of opening. Bitter for Lilienthal, who had big plans for the last quarter in Munich, but was suddenly thwarted. A highlight should be “Olympia 2666”. For a 24-hour bus tour through Munich, participants should experience theater in an unusual way and have breakfast at the end.

Toshiki Okada would also have contributed to this and also shown it in the Olympic Stadium. Instead, he studied something new with the ensemble in five days. It is better to try a new beginning than to cry tears for an end that has not taken place or to give up the futile hope of being able to restore a past time, according to the program booklet.

Munich's culture officer Anton Biebl then recalled the difficult start that Lilienthal had in Munich because his theater initially alienated many. In the meantime, however, he is enjoying the love and recognition of the audience. Lilienthal didn't adapt either. "You gave us a theater that has never existed here before," said Biebl.

NFL, NFLPA reach agreement on 2021 salary cap .
The NFL and NFLPA have agreed to some compromises regarding finances. Next year’s salary cap will be no lower than $175M, Tom Pelissero and Mike Garafolo of NFL.com report. Rather than borrowing money from projected future revenues through 2030 — as the players initially sought — this agreement will take projected funds through 2024 to help guard against a salary cap free fall this season could cause, Mark Maske of the Washington Post tweets.
