  1. They can't change helmets anymore, NFL rules stipulate the same helmet must be used all season. http://www.businessinsider.com/nfl-bans-some-throwback-uniforms-photos-2013-9 The rule changed in 2013.
  2. The Who? I tune out when I see anything flower/corn shaped on my TV.
  3. My 5 year old loved it, he knows the teams, scores (from each team, each game, by week) and is starting to learn the players names, he enjoyed seeing them all in one place. We typically only catch the Falcons games and maybe a few more here and there so he doesn't get exposed to a lot of the teams. I have a feeling we'll be investing in the RedZone channel next season.
  4. At one point in the game the sight of a Panthers, Falcons and Bucs LB crew in at the same time was pretty cool to see.
  5. With the superimposed physicality players were playing with all 3 guys had good days. If the players would have been allowed to go full speed and return fumbles the NFC would have destroyed the AFC yesterday.
  6. You were, we were in 235 for a few years before moving down to the 100's in 2013, the ticket prices were only $5-10 more than the 200's through 2016. Granted we had years of seniority and were called to ask if we wanted to move and spoke with the CSR and locked in at a good price.
  7. This is the truth, I was one of 2 people in my section for the last game of the season in 2007, security wouldn't let us move our seats to sit closer to the field and there were chants for JOEY after Byron Leftwich threw multiple horrible passes... the Falcons will eventually fall on hard times again like that... they're going to wish they had loyal fans in the stands.
  8. My seats, on the 35 yard line, behind the Falcons bench, 10 rows from the field were $100 / ticket per game in 2016... where are those $100* tickets located at? ($100 before fees) When you see empty seats in the lower bowl and ask why you don't understand how folks can't afford those tickets consider what they cost a year ago. A comparable ticket today is $277.77 on the TicketExchange before fees. The average fan either can't afford or refuses to pay exorbitant prices for a few hours of entertainment (if you're lucky).
  9. Remember when the Falcons had the easiest schedule entering 2016? How did that turn out for most teams doubting that team?
  10. I'm guessing they did that to keep up a safety barrier for the upcoming events/games until the site is more secure. That's a long drop from the sidewalk to the bottom of the GA Dome pit.
  11. So this schedule ranking is based on a snapshot as of today alone, with half of the season left a lot can change and the toughness grade can change greatly. Saying the Falcons have a tough schedule now could become easier or harder in the matter of two weeks. Getting wrapped up in projections like this are asinine. It took 1 play for the Packers season to get thrown into doubt, the same could be said about ANY of the NFC teams ahead or behind the Falcons. The only team I see not having a QB issue right now is the Vikings because they're winning games with a backup, all of the other teams are one bad hit from being sub .500 on the year.
  12. #1. NO PSL's for ATLU #2. Tickets available to the general public at a very decent price #3. NO PSL's you can buy Season Tickets on a yearly basis .....remember when the Falcons used to do that? Remember those full Domes for regular season games AND playoff games, just like the ATL United? Atlanta is a great sports city when you give the entire city the ability to buy affordable tickets!
  13. I mean it's happened before, it just depends on how much a jerk the owner or ownership group wants to be: Not necessarily a PSL program but it's essentially a long term STH agreement.
