It's possible, however I think this is way more likely.

Construction just got underway on a new Football stadium at the Meadowlands for the Jets and Giants, the new stadium (completion set for 2010) will have it's naming rights sold as the Jets no longer wish to play at a stadium named for another NFL team (Giants Stadium). The new Stadium will be the most expensive stadium in the US and the only stadium to host two NFL franchises, it's in the New York market so having naming rights on a NFL stadium that is in the New York Market and hosts twice as many home games as any other NFL stadium means it's a great advertising oppurtunity as the National media coverage will be double average stadiums. Also keep in mind with the new Prudential Center (the Rock) opening in Downtown Newark next month which will host the NHL Jersey Devils and "possibly" the NBA Nets, CO decided to end their sponsorship of the Arena at the Meadowlands formerly known as the "Continental Airlines Arena". The name will stay on the arena until some other sponsorship name is worked out or the building demolished.

Besides the NFL Jets/Giants stadium potential naming rights there's also one other lucrative sports venue under construction in the New York market that gets huge National Media attention, in 2009 the New York Yankees will move into a new stadium under construction across the street from the current Yankee stadium. The Yankees are selling naming rights however the name "New Yankees Stadium" must be in the name, you might "New Yankees Stadium at Continental Airlines Field" etc..

FYI...

Continental Airlines is the Official Airline of the New York Football Giants and the New York Yankees.

The Yankees are not selling naming rights to the new stadium name. It has been said officially many times it will just be "Yankees Stadium". However, there will be premium stadium sponsors, such as like Adidas is now doing at the current stadium. Continental's best bet is the new Giants Stadium. Its also wishful thinking that the Newts may change their mind and move to Newark. Their new Arena is getting ready to be built in Brooklyn, which is being called The Barclay's Center.

I long for the good old days when stadiums were named for citizens who contributed to their communities. I understand the reasons for naming rights, but I don't have to like it. May Jacobs Field remain Jacobs Field for years to come!

If any coporation has to sponsor a stadium, I rather it be CO. Of course my beloved Shea Stadium will soon be no more, instead we will have Citifield. At least it doesn't sound too corporately sponsored at first.

No shovels in the ground yet, and the usual NIMBYs are fighting the Atlantic yards project. It may work out or it may turn into another West Way or West Side stadium. Meanwhile the new arena in Newark is complete.

They have a deal for naming rights, but the project is far from approval. The usual suspects that prevented the West Side stadium for the Jets, the West Way project, the direct connection of the LIRR to JFK via the abandoned Rockaway branch, the World Trade Center site, Farley/Moynihan, Penn Station Vornando redevelopment etc. are fighting the project.
