About 2% of comments are about that.

About 98% of comments are inane suburb-bashing.

You're petty much right. But seriously, this isn't a bad development, I just have no way to get to it.

Why not just ride in a car like the rest of the grown ups?

Ok... but i bet about 90 percent of the people in the Atlanta area can find a way to get to it.

I bet you could find a way to get to it if you tried.

People will be able to get to it by car or by (bus, in the meantime) transit. It will just take awhile.

Hopefully, the attractions around the stadium are worthwhile so not everyone shows up at the same time and not everyone leaves at the same time, which causes extra traffic.

I want a way that isn't stressful and time-consuming. It's not like i'm going there to hang out. I see a game, and then I go home. They could've built this with transit in mind. Maybe put aside a few million for light rail. They might as well seeing how they're developing all of this. They can use lease money to at least build a streetcar around Cumberland. Anyway, these are just my stupid ideas.

Sure the new stadium looks great. But this move still means I am no longer a Braves fan despite growing up memorizing their lineup.

Sure. 90% of the people could find a way to get to China if they really tried. Are they going to go there after work on a Tuesday? No.

In all the years the Braves were on the south side I only took transit a few times. It was just way too much hassle, especially if you had old people or a batch of kids. Even if you took the train down to Georgia State you still had to walk a long way.

Right but this location will be less convenient by car for most of the metro too. Great if you live in Cobb (Besides $400M tax dollars cost) but few want to deal with top end 285 just to have an evening out at a game.
