    I'm glad they're doing it, but I agree it's worth noting how little problem they had taking her money and naming the stadium after her, knowing full well she was a total racist.

    So...racist and anti Semitic/pro Hitler comments all the way back in the 90s, and just now getting it renamed? Better late than never I suppose

    I'll never forget her, "Hitler did a lot of good" interview. "He built roads..."

    In my opinion they should take the name off and give the money she donated back to the Schott family. No way they should have taken that money to start. However, if you are going to take the money and name the stadium, show some balls and give that money back.

    It's weird they didn't put that in the article, they just left it kind of vague.

    The Schott family foundation is ok with them taking the name off the building.

    Oh I know. I am just saying it's dirty to know that they were receiving dirty money and still took it in exchange for something
