Fall of Sports Authority reignites fight over Mile High name

DENVER (AP) — The demise of Sports Authority has reignited a fight in Colorado over the future of the Denver Broncos' stadium, a place long tied to the city's identity.

It's been over a decade since the team's first home was demolished, but its Mile High name has lived on, in smaller letters, on its sleek, modern successor after a failed grassroots campaign to stop corporate sponsorship. First it was Invesco Field at Mile High. After the mutual funds company faltered, Sports Authority stepped in and bought out the stadium naming rights contract, keeping the legendary name attached.
