Allianz, the front-runner to secure the new stadium's naming rights, is an insurance and financial services company founded in Berlin in 1890 that moved to Munich in 1949 and had ties to Nazi Germany. Its CEO at the time, Kurt Schmitt, was Adolf Hitler's economics minister. It was the insurer of the Auschwitz death camp's facilities and personnel. Even if Allianz has tried to make restitution over the years to the families of the Holocaust victims, why should a football stadium be a reminder of the painful events that led to the murder of six million Jews? With so many Holocaust survivors in this area and ancestors of survivors or people who lost their parents or grandparents in concentration camps, it just makes no sense. Allianz has 11,000 employees in the United States, offices in New York and sponsors PGA senior golf tournaments and Formula One races. But it's the past that will prompt a damage-control campaign if Allianz remains the front-runner and wins the naming rights to the new Giants (http://www.fannation.com/tags/show_tag/19) and Jets (http://www.fannation.com/tags/show_tag/20) stadium. A public affairs firm has been hired by the New Meadowlands Stadium Corp., to perform due diligence on the companies interested in naming and sponsorship rights. It has been working overtime on Allianz.

At least you wouldn't be lying if you said it.

I think that's taking it over the top. Just cause one guy decades ago was the head of Allianz and he was a Nazi, doesn't mean that the Allianz employees and executives today are loyal subjects of the Fuhrer. People need to stop making these stupid exaggerations because of what one man did 50 years ago. If we suddenly found out that Walt Disney was an undercover Nazi who fronted as a Jew to spy on the US, does that mean we would have to shut down everything Disney?

Actually, the Giants are assholes for what they are doing to all season ticket holders for seats in the new stadium.
