Roll eyes (sarcastic) "Amiga fails to deliver cash, loses naming rights to Kent arena"

Tuesday, July 31, 2007,

"The city of Kent dumped tech company Amiga as naming-rights sponsor for the city's planned hockey arena after the company failed to deliver a promised down payment Monday.

Amiga was supposed to pay $2.5 million by 5 p.m. to secure the $10 million, 20-year naming-rights deal for what would have been called The Amiga Center at Kent.

But in recent weeks, the city and company had sparred over details such as control of advertising in the new arena and Amiga had offered less money than initially promised, Kent officials said.

By Monday evening, the deal was off, and city officials said they would look for a new sponsor.
