Well jeff, Newcastle City council appears condeming this. quoted" City council bosses have condemned a decision by Newcastle United to rename St James' Park after 130 years. The club said a change to the Sports Direct Arena was a prelude to securing a new global sponsor which would generate more revenue. Newcastle City Council joined fans in criticising the club, claiming "some things are beyond profit". The authority also said it would refuse to change any signs in the city bearing the name St James' Park. "
