The video is insane. We'll probably end up with something that looks like every other stadium.
I like that tweet in the Bleacher Report article, though. Pure greed on Arthur's part to get $800 mil of private capital for a new stadium and guarantee clauses in the project to have a minimum percentage of minorities working on it. Oh, the humanity.
From the blog Shutdown Corner: Alien invasion or football experience? In Atlanta come 2017, there won't be much of a difference, if an exotic new stadium plan becomes reality. That there is one of the two major designs for the new Atlanta Falcons stadium, proposed … Continue reading →
I like the aperture roof.
Only problem going with a really cool looking stadium is it doesn't stay cool for too long.
And the team never makes it past January....
Dive for the thrill, shoot for the kill.
I really hope they save the first design for when ever they remake the rose bowl. It looks like a rose.
Should make this for the Falcants
The first rendition, I guess Pantheon, looks very cool. Hope they use it as an Atlanta resident.
Its bull shit how they build something this nice in the poopiest part of town.
The Atlanta Falcons, a social welfare project for the city of Atlanta.
And we'll end up with a basic stadium.

Except as long as they get a disproportionate amount of temporary jobs on the construction, they're too dumb to ask for any ownership and the ensuing money from event sales.
Until Atlanta really cracks down on panhandling, the downtown area will not be successful.
It looks like a butthole... literally. Even closes like one...
How exactly do you think your butthole closes? I don't think mine goes in a circular motion...maybe yours is different though.

well.....he did roam the PSU campus during the Sandusky era
3 time POTW, member since 2006, MLWTI: 4-3
Interesting that you know how a butt hole opens and closes.
Lol. I suppose it may be malfunctioning after that.
Good point, poor choice of words from me. It still looks like one though.
This whole thing still pisses me off. Why would they agree to spend a billion dollars on a new stadium when they could spend substantially less renovating the current one???? Does no one seem to care that Georgia was one of the hardest hit states when the economy tanked?
Authur Blank a man of true greed.
When he was threatening to move the Falcons, all I could think was Good riddance. Blank confounds me sometimes. At one time (do not know if this is still a go) he wanted to build a ginormous ferris wheel downtown (similar to the one in London).......does he expect the taxpayers to foot the bill for this as well? We need money for schools, teachers, police, and fire fighters........not an ugly monstrosity of a stadium.
You know he and whoever else is privately contributing is footing the bill for 80% of this, right? It's not like the Marlins stadium where the team owner fleeced the city.
I don't disagree that it's a luxury item in a poor economic climate, but the construction will provide jobs, albeit temporarily, and the cost to the city will be less than economic impact of Super Bowls.
How much is the city shelling out for this?
$200 million. Arthur Blank weakly threatened to move the team to get $300, but everyone within a 100 mile radius of the city knew he was bluffing.
That's terrible. The Georgia Dome is only 20 years old... I would be pissed if I were a resident.
