Do I like it? I guess. Helped get an MLS team here. But financially, no. Why should local taxpayers give loads of money away to a billionaire?

A city planner who is working directly with the Stadium said this thing is huge in comparison to the current Georgia Dome.

Had we lost the Falcons and kept the Braves, you would have found some way to b***h and moan about that too. You never cease to be negative. Insufferable...

It is simple math. 2.5 million visitors to Braves games a year over 82 days versus about a million visitors over 15-20 events for the Falcons stadium.
