I don't. Maybe someone could peel back the layers, make it easier to see.

I guess 1 billion dollar stadiums are going to be the norm. Awesome, cant wait until my city wants to use my taxes towards a new stadium while schools, fire departments and police forces are being cut.

there is a chance the Rams can walk away from the Edward James dome or whatever it is called...damn thing opened in like, 1996.  what a dinosaur!  and 10 NFL games a year?  The odd concert/convention?  that old barn is a dump!

It looks like a normal stadium with some steel and glass wrapped around it. At least the Vikings new place had a window for God to watch.

It will be totally different than all those stadiums where the team never loses.
 
2013-06-19 01:56:29 PM  
I propose that the new stadium be named Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, just because it is as ugly, if not uglier, than that.
 
2013-06-19 01:59:26 PM  
The proposed stadium looks pretty awesome aside from the unfortunate resemblance to a bunghole, but it does allow for the awesome wraparound scoreboard/videoboard/whatever.

However, there's no need to replace the Georgia Dome.

Dunno, the last time Sherman came to the Dome, he's the one who got burned by our receiving corps.

Atlanta teams do have a history of being really good right up until it counts. Speaking more about the Braves and Falcons than the Hawks, who are just bad normally.

If I recall correctly, the Falcons and Dawgs (my alma mater) lost by the same score. In the same stadium. On the cusp of a title birth.

You could have told me my girlfriend broke up with me and I wouldn't have noticed.

The problem with the Georgia Dome is that it has a fabric roof that keeps being blown off in storms.

The deal for the new stadium isn't even that bad.  The Falcons are paying for most of it, and the rest comes from a hotel/motel tax that can't be diverted to other things because it can only be used for downtown development.

I don't mind a new stadium going in downtown.  But then I live in Cobb and don't have to pay for it.  And considering that every podunk town in Georgia was trying to lure the Falcons (No Flowery Branch, not yours), it might as well stay downtown and near MARTA.

Why is it being built?  Because the current stadium is old by NFL standards.
Really?  Yes.  The league has also implied that anytime you build a new stadium you will get the Super Bowl.
A Super Bowl in Atlanta?  Yes, they are desperate for another after the Icepocalypse/RayLewisStabathon they hosted in 2000.
I hear that the Dome is in a scary neighborhood.  Yes.
Why don't they build it out by me in Suburb County?  Because the city is coughing up $400 million from a hotel tax.  Your town doesn't have $400 million and has no way of raising that much without getting the money from you.
