Id personally say 90% that two out of the three happen. But every investment is a probability. Even US Bonds can default, or Exxon could collapse.

You must work for or be involved with either the Falcons or the City of Atlanta in some capacity.

Either way, you are one heckuva booster.

If the dome could get it 94 in Vine City I think the new stadium can get it Downtown in 2017/18.
Technically Downtown boundary is Northside, but that's splitting hairs.
I would like to see the tax money go towards investment in transit, but there is no way the state will allow that to happen.

Goodell ties Atlanta Super Bowl to new stadium, says “game is meant to be played in the elements” | ProFootballTalk Perdue signs Georgia Dome tax bill - Atlanta Business Chronicle This deal went through almost three years ago. We (Purdue) already agreed to give them tax money for the Dome or a new stadium through 2050. The Dome isn't sticking around for another 37 years.

True. I would love to have it be spent on giving us more streetcars and completing new Beltline trails. I don't care for football the least bit. We are way past the point of being able to do anything to change it.

So then why does NOLA get it every 5 years?

I think it's because it's more touristy and it's a party town. That's why Miami has had so many in my opinion. New Orleans has Mardi Gras and Miami has the beach. More reason to visit in February. Our winters could use more events.

Nope. Not beyond living and working in the city and a fan of the Falcons.

^all of that plus Miami and New Orleans typically have better weather that time of the year and New Orleans has had 336 million in renovations since 2006.
