Colorado-based retailer Sports Authority completed its deal for the naming rights to the Denver Broncos home stadium in late in August 2011, taking over from the financial company Invesco. Soon afterwards the signs for Invesco Field at Mile High began to come down to get ready for the new Sports Authority Field at Mile High signs, which were in place before the Broncos regular season home opener on Sept. 12 against the Raiders.

At the end of August a temporary sign went up at the newly-renamed stadium that stirred controversy while it was briefly displayed. The large sign displayed the words "Sports Authority Field." The part that's supposed to come at the end of the name of the stadium -- "At Mile High" -- was nowhere to be found. The sign came down quickly and drew some strong criticism from fans. (credit: CBS)
