Fellow Atlanta Footballers...This Should Make You Mad


Today I was listening to the press conference about the just finalized agreement to build a new stadium for the Falcons ($200M from taxpayers, $800M from Falcons). During his statement, Arthur Blank reiterated his interest in MLS. Tony Schiavone, WSB Sports Director, offered this commentary:
quote:

I don't care one bit about soccer and I don't think anyone else out there does either. That remark by Arthur Blank made me snicker.

Already sent him an email suggesting that he F off and return to broadcasting World Championship Wrestling Nitro.

If Blank knew his audience, he'd know that there are apartment complexes off of 285 that advertise a "soccer court."

It was Tony Schiavone that said it, not Blank.

Blank wants to have an MLS team in Atlanta for the residents to ignore, like the rest of their sports teams.

Yea, that pic is from his glory days.

Apparently WSB had a goal of hiring the most ignorant redneck among the candidates.
