Good luck with that.

If you'd like to find out how fans feel about getting locked into it, just ask....

Hey, it helped the Carolinas get our team. So I can't complain too much. Thanks for the post PL.

Most of the options involving tax payer or public funding are now put to a vote. Let the majority decide.

And I've been to the Georgia Dome several times and trust me, I've been in many dome stadiums that are absolute sh!tholes- the New Orleans Superdome being one- and I don't think the Georgia Dome is all that bad. Traffic and parking blows, but that's true of most stadiums built "in town."

football should be played outside and on grass.

actually heard that from several falcons fans a couple years ago when i went down there to watch a game. they had just found out that blank was talking about getting a new stadium.

i like that it's a proposed open air stadium. a throwback to the atlanta-fulton county stadium days would be awesome. as it is having half of the NFC south teams in domes blows.

If Blank sells them all then there is no real reason to field a successful team anymore.

It's a retractable roof stadium, technically not open-air. And I'd be willing to bet most retractable roof stadiums stayed closed more than they stay opened during football season.
