Why Why Why Why Why?

Yet again we find our great club in the media for shooting ourselves in the foot and you have to ask the question. WHY?

Newcastle United is world famous for many things with passion and loyalty near the top of the list, which is testament to the fans but we have had many things stripped away by our current owner and his chairman.

Club legends have been lied to and dissed, the fans also. Strange decisions follow at an alarming rate, more so when we seem to be on a steady ship. Our tradition's are slowly being ebbed away and with that surely our greatest assets will follow.

Why is the question.

Why buy a club and antagonise it's followers by alienating them?

Why embarrass club legends?

Why the need to graffiti the stadium with adverts for the sake of a few quid?

Why the need to change the stadium name?

Many more questions can be added but we haven't the time or patience to even attempt to read but one thing has to be asked in regards to morale draining decisions?

I'm not a Newcastle fan but I feel your pain. Modern football is *****e! It is not a game, it's a marketing exercise and we fans are treated with contempt. This crass example of tastelessness by an owner who doesn't share the supporters passion is typical of the modern era which has no sense of pride or tradition. I'd suggest that the fans begin a campaign to ignore the new name (I won't utter it) and refer to St James' Park as St James' Park. Good luck to you all and don't stand for this crap!

It would be one thing to sell the naming rights to increase profit to invest in players but another thing to **** on your history to name it after your own company after getting you relagated! my heart goes out to you at times and its looking like pardew is the most under rated manager in history well done on your start to the season

Were fans even consulted before the re-naming of the stadium? As a Villa fan, I'm pretty sure when Randy Lerner first came in, he wanted to know what the reaction of the fans would be if the name of Villa Park was to change. The reaction was that of any fans of any club, thus the name Villa Park remains.

if you want to stay in third place you're going to need as much money as you, or Ashley can get his hands on. I don't call our ground, sorry stadium the Etihad, no it's Eastlands. Or Not Maine Rd. I believe ground names should at least reference a place, not a product. So I presume that you will continue to call it St James's Park.

Cheers for the comments lads.. The club has been a bit of a laughing stock over the years and none of it is our (the fans) doing. In a past life we must have done something really bad, that's all i can say.
