when the cleveland browns abandoned cleveland for baltimore, they were forced to leave all of the team records, colors, uniforms, etc, behind for the expansion team that took their place a few years later.
MLB should force the former atlanta braves to call themselves the cobb comets or commuters or something, and leave the braves records and uniforms for a new atlanta braves team.
or yeah, call the team the atlanta crackers. lots of history there.
Pretty sure Boston and Philadelphia would get a second team long before Atlanta would. Loyal fan bases, sell out every game, etc...But let's be realistic people, it's not going to happen...further more I highly doubt expansion will happen. I think Montreal, Nashville, New Orleans, Charlotte, and even Portland have a better chance of landing the Rays if they ever move than a city getting two teams.
How about going after the dumb hookers that are collecting public assistance? By that I mean every Georgia state politician under the Gold Dome.
.....unless, of course, North Korea is your kind of vacation spot...
Sadly, thanks to advanced satellite tracking technology and surveillance, there is NO WHERE to live that is "OFF THE GRID"
Why are drug users such easy targets? Why not go after murderers, rapists and thieves that are collecting public assistance first?
Screw the Braves. Save the Ted. This business proposal and the name "Atlanta Surge" sounds sweet to me, but MLB would probably never approve it. An MLS team is what we need instead, but then Turner Field would have to be reconfigured back to the Olympic Stadium it was during the 1996 Atlanta Centennial Olympic Games.
anyone else immediately think of this?
i mentioned this idea a few months ago and everyone laughed at me. i think it would be great for atlanta to have a real 'home team' for ITPers and not the southeast at large. new york has the mets, chicago has the white sox, LA has the angels, why can't we have a team for ourselves?
all that being said, i think the name sucks. change it and we'll be good.
The Braves are leaving Atlanta? Why wasn't I informed? Arrange a press conference ASAP, and order 40 more snow trucks. I need to look like I'm in charge.
(1) Heath, Bill 31st (2) Gooch, Steve 51st (3) Crane, Mike 28th
(4) Murphy, Jack 27th (5) Hill, Judson 32nd (6) Jackson, Bill 24th
These 6 examples of what is wrong with the Georgia State legislature were sponsors of SB 404 to deny a driver's license and other benefits to Childhood Arrivals who are serving or have served in the military and/or are in High School or have graduated from High School or an equivalent. Why? I can only assume they were trying to play their anti immigrant card.
They should go ahead and add "Murphy's Law" to their stupid, proposed monument - it sums up every dumb-ass session of the Georgia legislature
"These old white men do not own our government"
This is true but unfortunately, they're the only ones that get out and vote.
I'd love a cross town rivalry like in Chicago, NYC, the Bay Area, and LA/Anaheim.
Perhaps Resurgens Brewing could be the exclusive beer provider.
With the exception of cannabis oil for seizure and cancer patients, this list is a bunch of nonsensical (and frequently downright illegal) garbage. What a waste of time and resources. VOTE!
I'm ok with the ten commandments as long as they include Hammurabi's code and other ancient law codes, perhaps the Magna Carta. A monument to ancient law codes would be neat and fitting but to only include one when their are many that have influenced our laws throughout the ages would be foolish. Besides, the law codes of the Old Testament where heavily influenced by Hammurabi's code.
"No city has gotten a second team since 1962"
And no team has moved as far from its city center as the Braves will in 2017. Maybe the Surge can buck a trend, as well.
I've got plenty of crazy ass ideas. How do I go about getting them in the paper?
MLS is a 50,000 seat artificial turf stadium is a recipe for failure.
"Closer to the fan base" is pure BS
He is right though. The Braves are screwing the city of Atlanta pure and simple. There is nothing illegal about it but it doesn't change the fact that they just flipped us all a bird. So technically they are closer to the new Braves fan base because the one in the city is all but gone.
