Giants/Jets Stadium: No Alliance with Allianz
CNBC.com | September 12, 2008 | 04:02 PM EDT

If you haven't heard, within the last couple hours, the Jets and Giants have ended naming rights negotiations with German insurer Allianz because of its former ties to the Nazis.

If any ties to the former Nazi Germany are unacceptable, I assume the following organizations are also off the table: Deutsche Bank, IBM, Volkswagen, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Siemens and BASF.

Interestingly enough, in our CNBC.com poll, 66 percent of respondents said that Allianz' former ties should NOT stop it from being the primary sponsor of the stadium.
