The Comcast Center is being renamed the Xfinity Center, giving it it's fourth name in the venue's 27-year history, according to the Boston Globe

Comcast bought the naming rights to the venue in 2008, renaming it from the Tweeter Center, after the now-bankrupt electronics chain, to the Comcast Center. 

Now it will be called the Xfinity Center after Comcast's television and Internet business. 

What do you think of the name change? Do you prefer Comcast or Tweeter? Or do you miss the days it was called Great Woods? Let us know in the comments!

GREAT WOODS was and still is for me the best name. I am a little partial to The Tweeter Center, as I used to work there

Comcast? Tweeter? Gillette? . . What's in a name, anyway? Oh! Yeah! Corporate name recognition! Where massive profits can buy a positive image in order to make more profits. So . . Why are we still Norton? Or Foxboro? Or Mansfield. when we can subsidize our struggling communities by selling our identities?! After all, aren't we "One nation of the corporation, by the corporation, and for the corporation?" Our national representatives and Supreme Court certainly think so!

I think they should do what they did with the Garden. Put the corporate name, and then end it with the name that everyone knows it by. So, Comcast Center at Great Woods. And then we can all call it Great Woods again...

Everyone should just still call it Great Woods. Don't give in to the corporate destruction of America. I was happy to recently switch to FIOS, for no other reason that despising Comcast.

The name SHOULD be Great Woods! I hate the ego of corporations today. The need to constantly change a venue name is annoying.
