Oh you've had worse things in your mouth! Lol
Old article, but may I just note: worst to first, people. NASL Spring Season champs! Go coach Haynes and go Silverbacks!
Future is the best hands down fuck them haters out thr saying he suck nd use autotune but look at you then look at him u a bum nd he the man so gone sumwhere
For the most part I'm excited about the Krog Street Market, though as a property owner in the immediate area, I'm concerned that over-saturation/development and traffic problems (all the local streets are just two lanes) could become a very real problem in the O4W/Inman Park.
One more thing Mr. Parker, *please* rationalize and improve the bus routes.
There are far too many bus routes that wind down every side street and alley servicing stops less than three hundred yards apart before bogging-down in a twenty-minute layover.
It would be much better to run the majority of routes 'out and back' on the major streets and arterials, with the terminus at a rail station.
All the big arterials should get at least one rush-hour express route that only stops at major districts.
In addition, bus stops should be spread further apart and and improved.
Finally, enforce behavior rules on all buses and trains. Dedicate more patrol cars to bus duty.
Any troublemaker should know they are five minutes away from a conversation with a Marta Police officer.
Ultimately, money talks in the Gold Dome. What the vultures in the Dome really want are the capital reserve funds.
Perhaps Parker can recruit the big businesses in Fulton and DeKalb and get *them* to lobby for MARTA independence.
In return, the yahoos in the Dome can take some of the reserve funds.

Even if no teams wants to take Wynalda, he proved during his short stint at Silverbacks that he can turn things around and is capable of coaching. If the change in league format for the 2013 season was applied in 2012, Silverbacks would be second or third in the league in the fall session. I think that speaks volumes about what he could do with the team that was dreadful in the first half of the season.
What would the Southern Baptist say? I'll bet there isn't a better looing butt in politics. Vote yes to the butt. Does he work at Jack's New York Deli in Smyrna?
Love Brian Haynes. He's paid his dues as an assistant in the MLS for years, it's about time he got a shot to coach a team. This isn't your old Silverbacks, once Wynalda came in the team culture did a complete 180. We finished 2012 strong and look to take the momentum into 2013. It's a great park, it's cheap, it's pro futbol. If you are a REAL footie fan, you need to come out to Silverbacks Park this season. Using the "wait till the MLS" excuse is lame, and you'll probably end up waiting until 2020 at the earliest.
And thanks to Creative Loafing, for the interview with Coach Haynes, he's a class act.
Hope to see some new faces at the stadium this year. Anyone interested in fanatical support of our club, get in touch with the apparently amusing and too serious Ultras, we'd be glad to have you. We're having too much fun to pay attention to the Skillet types.
Come out and join us.
Thanks for such a great article, Clay! You really did a great job showing Shab's connection to the movement, and talking about the work she does that's meaningful, instead of silly things like her favorite foods and color. ;-)
You have always been a good journalist, even from when I remember you in college, and I'm glad that you are on the Creative Loafing team. You bring credibility, power, and professionalism to CL, and they're lucky to have you - you make them look good :-) Keep up the great work, Clay, and Shab and OOHA!
We are winning, y'all! Housing is a human right and soon it will be inconceivable that we as a society ever let anyone go without a decent place to call home. :-)
I totally agree the Ultras tend to take themselves way too seriously at times, but at least they're attempting to create a proper footy atmosphere. This is the 2nd most attended team in the NASL. If Blank is smart, he will work with them in some fashion, either as a farm team or just buy/partner with them and move them up to MLS.
If the MLS comes to Atlanta they'll skip right over the terribly run Silverbacks.
It's funny that they're the only club in America to want Wynalda as an actual head coach. He's pretty much begging for a real coaching job and everyone else just laughs. But not the Silverbacks.
A good takeaway from them though: watching the Atlanta "Ultras" is funnier than a trip to a comedy club.
Yeah...I want THAT guy fixing my food. :-p
How do you create facts in front of a camera lens and a microphone?
Surreptitious recording is surreptitious recording. It is unpalatable now matter who does it. What you meant to say is that it's bad when the other guys do it but it's cool when our boys do it.
The ends etc etc....
Yeah, unfortunately I fear once he starts dealing with state legislature, that soul will be ice cold.
