Default 5-6 years and we'll have a new home

It seems to have been on Arthur Blanks mind for as long as I can remember now, but now that the team is moving in the right direction on the field, he wants to give us a new field to do it on.

The Georgia Dome is too big, and rarely do the Falcons sell it out (often free tickets to fill seats and avoid local tv blackouts). That's just the nature of Atlanta sports.

The new open air stadium will hold less and hopefully bring more character to visiting Atlanta with humidity and other weather conditions that Atlanta deals with into play.

It does seem crazy however to spend $700m on a new stadium when the Georgia Dome is around 20 years old, yet I can't help but support what in the end will be a great move for our organisation.
