You will see the Dodgers get $240m per year, even the lowly Astros get $80m per year.
Why did the Braves get such a bad TV deal?

It was negotiated as part of the terms of the sale to Liberty Media.

Terrible idea. All the Turner Field parking lots were bad for the neighborhood, but this is worse. This idea better not get any serious traction.

The Braves' New Ballpark Will Have Less Parking Than Turner Field

Quote:
Inadequate parking was one of the main reasons the Braves cited for needing a new ballpark. Now that plans for the Cobb County stadium are finally coming out, it emerges that the new stadium will have 2,500 fewer parking spaces than Turner Field.

Getting to Turner Field was never easy. In a car-centric region, the 8,50o-car parking lot wasn't enough. Using public transportation was a chore, with fans needing to take shuttles from the Five Points MARTA station, about a mile away. But the new ballpark sounds like it will be even worse. With tens of thousands of fans arriving in Cobb County, all by road and all at the same time, there will be just 6,000 parking spaces available.

The plan is for the "spillover" traffic to park in lots at local malls, hotels, and office parks. From there, fans will take trams to the ballpark. Not buses, as in downtown Atlanta, but "golf-like trams."

It's not very desirable land since it's surrounded by interstate highways. I guess the braves couldn't purchase any of the land around the stadium?
