Pink Taco seeks to put name on Cards Stadium
PHOENIX (Arizona Republic) -- First, it shook up the Scottsdale establishment. Now, the family behind the Pink Taco restaurant chain is rattling the Cardinals' cage.

Would you believe Pink Taco Stadium?

That's what the Morton family, famous for creating the Hard Rock Café and Morton's Steakhouse, is saying they want to name Cardinals Stadium.

They are offering $30 million as evidence of their commitment and are promising to pursue an agreement with the Arizona Cardinals.

One problem: The Cardinals, who control the Glendale stadium's naming rights, say they want no part of the name.

Harry Morton, president and CEO of Pink Taco, said his group is prepared to use the deal for $30 million over 10 years as a starting point for negotiations. Morton said Monday that his company has the "edge and cachet" that would help elevate the team's profile with a younger demographic.

He also said he would consider calling the $455 million venue Morton Stadium, provided the Pink Taco menu was prominent throughout the venue. more
