It is good to know that other cities can get stadium deals done. That getting a stadium deal done is not some sort of non-existent golden unicorn.

The Atlanta Falcons are the next team in line to get a new stadium. The city of Atlanta and Falcons’ owner Arthur Blank have announced that they will be sticking shovels in the dirt.

The best news for San Diego fans on the stadium front is that potential options in Los Angeles are shutting down. That is the only movement we see.

Congrats Atlanta! You were able to ride a good team into getting a new stadium. Wish the city of San Diego could have agreed on things years ago.
