New stadium deal before 2013?


I remember there was talk of this a while back but it didn't seem all that likely to happen to me. I guess I underestimated the situation. This quote from McKay really made it seem like a foregone conclusion that the Dome is on its way out.

the Georgia Dome is no longer in the team's long-term plans.

And further...

The Atlanta Business Chronicle reported Sept. 4 The Sembler Co., based in St. Petersburg, is trying to secure the General Motors Plant in Doraville, where the developer would set aside 100 acres for an open-air stadium for the Falcons.

 

I think the Dome deal runs until 2025 so we'll have a few more years of indoor football. Although football was meant to be played outdoors, I must admit the Dome has made the Peach  Chick fil a Bowl much more pleasant
