Notes on the new Braves stadium renderings

Literally, notes ON the renderings

Atlanta magazine editors carefully reviewed the renderings of the proposed Cobb County stadium development and drew the below conclusions. Literally, we drew them.

(Just to make it absolutely clear, the below images have been altered. By us.)

    Wow how lame! What a bunch of pretentious bullshit. Crying because you can't ride yours fixies to the game anymore? Clearly written but some hipster tool who thinks they are too cool to go "otp". The misconception about the suburbs is so way off base.

      @blah blah LOL. I guess you are unaware that this stadium is being subsidized by Tax Payer FUnds, $300,000,0000+, which is 37% of Cobb county's annal budget. That is money redirected from education, public programs, and given to Braves as a Corporate Welfare. Why is the this stadium being built, because the BRaves said it would bring them closer to their Fans which are heavily concentrated in the NORTH of Atlanta. "Even though Sports economists almost UNIVERSALLY agree that public financing is a waste of taxpayer money. See http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB121625362443460331 , http://www.theatlanticwire.com/entertainment/2013/11/atlanta-braves-new-stadium-terrible-deal-cobb-county/71469/ , http://www.fieldofschemes.com/2013/04/01/4822/nine-out-of-ten-economists-agree-sports-stadium-subsidies-are-dumb/ , and especially http://econjwatch.org/articles/do-economists-reach-a-conclusion-on-subsidies-for-sports-franchises-stadiums-and-mega-events . The fact that it will have less parking spots than Turner Field and cause more congestion than before is also no help. "

      @blah blah Judging by your response I think our perception of the suburbs is spot on.

    No, it was actually quite amusing Mr. Blah blah, if that is your real name. I especially liked the walkway go the Cheesecake Factory. That may be a real thing.

      @Ap Not a gun, Ap. It's a purse strap.

    You missed Herman Cain's paunchy appearance in the second illustration. He's under the "f" in firearms.
