I was actually about to post that map too but this time you beat me. That was very interesting to see and obviously the Braves have done their homework. One thing though I think it is a map of people who bought tickets at all last year, not specifically season ticket holders.

First, that area has an Atlanta address. It's not City of Atlanta, but the address still reads Atlanta.

Second, they can call themselves whatever they want. Look at the NY Giants & NY Jets. They both play in New Jersey! There are tons of examples of teams using names different than where their team is located.

This move goes against the trend of sports teams moving downtown. I can't think of a recent example of a major sports team moving from the inner city to the suburbs

That would make more sense when you look at how far out some of those dots are!

Earlier I mentioned the traffic on 285w from Gwinnett now add the traffic from 400 that will have to get on 285 also to get to Cobb.

Ever heard of the San Francisco 49ers? They are moving to Santa Clara next year.

The traffic nightmare alone makes this a horrible decision. Has anyone actually tried driving north on Cobb Parkway during rush hour? Or any if the neighboring interstates? I mine as well just banish myself to my house because I won't be able to get anywhere. Wow... Just... Wow.

It'll be at the juncture of I-75 and I-85. Add in the river, upscale area compared to where it was, brilliant move really. Maybe they'll reconsider the MARTA rail spur up to Cobb?
