I can't wait until that overly complex roof mechanism that probably added $200 Million to the project (the cost of the city of Atlanta's contribution) breaks down for good after maybe 3 tests.

Very unique, one of a kind sports facility. I think that it might be the most spectacular stadium in the world. Beats the hell out of China's "bird's nest". imo
Beijing National Stadium, Bird's Nest

I can't wait until people who have only negative things to say about their city find another place to be unhappy.

As for the stadium, I can't wait to see construction start.

Really?

Why?

How would that enhance your already perfect existence?

I like the size comparisons. We'll be shorter than the Eiffel tower and the McDonald's arch, wider than an aircraft carrier and you put the statue of Liberty inside of it.

It would give me something to laugh at.

The roof needs to be well-lubed, so that when it slides in and out, it can be ready for the big moment when the Falcons come.

Although I am not a fan of the use of public money to finance stadiums for billionaires, I hope this succeeds for the sake of the city.

However, the design seems forced and gadgety.

I still believe the key factor in assessing this project will be how it relates to the street and the surrounding community.
