I'm not sure if there are any Atlanta Falcons fans here. Regardless, the team is looking to build a $1 Billion stadium for 2017...only about 20 years after the Georgia Dome was built. The design looks amazing but I can't imagine what this will do to ticket prices. Plus they expect the taxpayers to front $200 million to build it. Here's the link (sorry it's not clicky, I'm on mobile):
What do you think? Is this a good idea for the city or a colossal waste of money and resources? Is there a point to building a new stadium to replace a facility that is really not that old?
