The Oakland Coliseum, long known as McAfee Stadium, has struck a new naming rights deal with Overstock.com for a paltry $2 million a year, reports the Sports Business Daily. The deal would be for six years, according to the Daily's anonymous sources. 

To put the price in perspective, the 49ers have been looking for a naming rights deal for their new stadium in Santa Clara worth at least $200 million, sources told The Bay Citizen last year.

The A's and the Raiders, who play in the coliseum, have long complained about the old, and often empty coliseum. The A's are trying to move to San Jose, while the Raiders want a new stadium to be built in Oakland.
