    Re: Aliens to invade Atlanta?

    For some reason when that oculus opened I expected to see the event horizon of a worm hole...

    I think the impact seats sound dumb.

    Why do I want some jackwagon back in the control room pressing a button to rumble my seat, inevitably 5 seconds after the "big hit," and spilling my $12 beer all over the place in the process?

    I can spill much cheaper beer at home without an artificial earthquake.

    Gotta go now, have to get back to yelling at kids to get off my lawn.

    "Impact seats" do sound pretty silly.

    The stadium concepts themselves look pretty sweet, though. The "falcon's eye" one is quite a statement.

    Re: Aliens to invade Atlanta?

    I wonder how much tax money it will take to build that monstrosity.

    I may be one of the few, but I really like the Georgia Dome. I've seen both bball and football in it and it's a great atmosphere.

    Supposedly none by local taxpayers - this will supposedly be financed by hotel and entertainment taxes and Blank's own money. How realistic this is? Who knows...

    The going rate for these things is about $1 billion nowadays. If that's private money, well, nobody is forcing you to buy tickets, merchandise, or watch football on television if you don't want to support it.

    However, it is also $200 million of public money--directly paid by Atlanta or not, it is still money with an opportunity cost behind it for the city, which is not a small check over to the Falcons.
