Are the Mets and Citi Breaking the Naming Deal?

According to Fox Business News, Citi is rethinking their $400 billion naming rights deal with the New York Mets. Citi is under contract to pay the Wilpon family $20 million a year for 20 years.
The report claims that "Citi likely won't be able to back out of the naming-rights agreement immediately..."

If the Mets and Citi break the deal, can we get rid of the stupid Dominos Pizza Patch?

One benefit of this recession could be the stupid naming rights! Remember when ball parks were named for pioneers of the club, the area where the stadium was built, or to honor veterans of the Armed Forces? Now we have no idea where FedEx Park, Fifth Third Field, and AT&T Stadiums are located.

I'd like to see us go back park names like Veterans Stadium, Dodger Stadium at Chavez Ravine, and the Polo Grounds.
