It's unique, but I just can't figure out how it could actually look nice from street level if it were actually built.  I guess Atlanta might not a city that's concerned with pedestrian friendly buildings though.

Anyone have the odds on exactly how quickly the seats will be exploited for "extracurricular" activities?

I'm in favor of this for people who complain about new rules for targeting the head.

That's just an awful idea.  Maybe they should add APPLAUSE signs too.

How much are taxpayers paying for all that bullshiat?

The Solarium looks like a $1 billion dollar shed. Not much imagination in that design. My two favourite upcoming retractable roof stadiums are...

82,000 seat Grand Stade to be built for French Rugby...

And the 80,000 seat Tokyo National Stadium...

$200,000,000 in construction bonds. After that it depends on how many people visit Atlanta over the next thirty something years (last year 40 million visited though not all stayed in hotels and some stayed in places outside the tax's catchment area). The public funding is a percentage of the hotel tax rather than a flat amount so the most conservative estimates are $600,000,000 if hotel rates and occupancy stay level. Higher estimates based on historic growth put the number at $900,000,000. Above historic growth would mean over a billion dollars of public money would go to the stadium over its lifetime. Most don't care since it is a charge on visitors and also the Falcons have heavily promoted the $200,000,000 initial construction number while ignoring the amount of public money they get for operations, upkeep, and expansion. Very few know or care that the $200,000,000 is only the initial cost to the public.

Do you get some soma to go with the feelies?

As if NFL tickets aren't expensive already, now this gimmick will jack up prices even more.

That Tokyo stadium is gorgeous.  I would totally expect it to ignore me when it walks down the hall in middle school.

"Shock seats" == "Puke seats".   They need to think this through.

Is anyone surprised the Japanese would make their stadium look like a deformed vagina?

20% of the cost, the team is paying for most of it, what pisses me off is they still allow the city stadium authority to have control over it. They wanted that as a reward for getting zoning pushed through, Arthur would have paid for it all but they were going to force him to build only where they allowed. It was farking blackmail and he should have moved them to the suburbs to fark them over.
