How Barclays might renegotiate the Brooklyn arena naming rights deal

How a cheeky Dear-Bruce-ole-chap letter to renegotiate the naming-rights deal for the "Barclays Center" might go:

Frankly, we're a bit wound up.

We read those pesky blogs and soon recognized you were talking a fair bit of bollocks. The arena was never going to open in 2009. We put 2010 in our shedules.

Then we read those blogs again and learned that 2011 might be a more accurate date. Now we hear that 2012 is a more likely best-case scenario.

It's time to take another look at our contract.

As you know, the document we signed was contingent on your getting financing sorted out by the end of November.

To put it politely, things are looking a bit dodgy right now, for you and, frankly, for us.
