How many cities can say they tore down a perfectly good stadium in the middle of an economic crisis so they could build a brand new overpriced stadium. Only in Atlanta.
Why doesn't the TOUR DE FRANCE just admit that all the riders are doping and be done with it.
Ray Lewis is still a liar.
New stadium? The NOLA Superdome was built in 1975 and they have no problem getting big events. Maybe it's the Atlanta marketing team...
Can someone explain why Manti Te'o's imagined girlfriend is still making headlines? How does this affect football or your life? And who cares?
We got the new stadium, fine now tell the governor, mayor and city council they will have to pay for their tickets, no free rides.
Bowl games are no longer rewards for winners. They are about $$$ for sponsors and teams.
So the NFL and the Falcons want to do all they can to get fans off the couch and to the the game and think a new stadium will do it because its "fan friendly" . The real reason you're losing fans is the cost. You've priced the average family man out of the game. Stop gouging.
I don't hate Ohio State. I hate Urban Meyer. I also hate that Ohio State only played 1 Top 25 team (21st) and was able to coast to a Championship game. The Big Ten is horrible lately.
Even if the Falcons win the Superbowl I still say NO NEW STADIUM.
You see, Fredi, it works better when you put the productive players on the field and the unproductive ones on the bench.
Martin Prado thanks for the memories. You are what baseball stands for.Good luck with your new team
If that power surge had happened in Atlanta, we would have been crucified by the press and everyone else. But since it was in New Orleans, all is forgiven.
I am not a Jerry Jones fan, but you have to admire the fact that he did not go begging the taxpayers for money to build his stadium, or make idle threats about moving the team. He sucked it up and paid for it himself. Arthur, this is one lesson you should learn from Jerry.
Why are 49ers crying interference? You didn't cry interference when Roddy got mugged by Na'Vorro Bowman in the NFC Championship game.
Best of luck to Martin Prado (MARTEEEN!!!)! Going to miss that fireplug of a player.
I'm not a Braves fan, but I love seeing ESPN with egg on their face for losing the fan vote to Freeman.
SportsCenter these days makes me want to puke. First they analyze every single play made by the Heat, followed by a LeBron press conference, followed by Stephen A. Smith analyzing what LeBron just said.
Atlanta can find 300 million for a new Falcons stadium yet they still can't manage to set aside a few million for a MARTA rail to Turner Field!!
Back before College Football players were allowed to showboat after every touchdown, a coach once said, "act like you've seen the end zone before". We need to go back to that philosphy.
The Falcons can win the Super Bowl and ESPN will infer it was a fluke.
Hope ARod will BGone.
NFL players show support for Hernandez yet want the women jurors in Florida to kill themselves. Good role models!
Never thought of Tebow as NFL QB, but what he has endured with Jets has been 'bush league'.
How 'bout them Ga. Southern Eagles?
