  1. In spite if all the great offensive plays we made with Kyle Shanahan here as the OC, the thing I will remember most about KS is he lost us the Super Bowl. His ego cost us big time. Run the ball kick the field goal and we WOULD have been champions.
  2. Stay strong Tandy. You will see Nito again. Prayers for you and your family. Im sure Nito would want you to be happy. Live the rest of your life happy in honor of Nito. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. Corinthians 15:26
  3. Prayers for you and your family Tandy. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me, your rod and staff they comfort me. Psalm 23:4
  4. The AJC is what it has always been. Horrible The last decent sports writer they had was Steve Wyche.
  5. Still no decision from Bailey. Falcons must still be in the mix.

  7. Qadree I'll be cheering for you extra hard and praying for you. You are an inspiration for others. You chose love over hate. Tandy so sorry for your loss. We all must forgive to be forgiven. I hope you and any other who has lost a loved one look no further than Qadree as inspiration to be able to forgive and God will replace everything you lost if you turn it over to him. God never said we wouldn't have unfair situations or that we wouldn't experience loss. But he promised if we would stay in faith, he would restore everything that was stolen. Joel Osteen
  8. Im not surprised at all. It will probably get even worse. Building MBS and charging PSL's did kill our home field advantage. That's why anytime I hear AB say the fans are important I just smh. I also heard the players have complained about the fan support. Watching the game at home is much more convenient and you can see more of the game. All the talk about the fan experience at MBS is a joke. Arthur all we want is a championship team. You got it wrong from a fan perspective. Real football fans probably could care less how nice the mall I mean stadium is... We enjoy going to away games. Tampa and Charlotte are both short drives from the Atlanta area. Outdoor football and lots of Falcon fans!
  9. Your TV setup looks awesome and fun! Also like the dog!
  10. IMO I enjoyed the draft the way it used to be on Saturday rounds1-3 and Sunday rounds 4-7. Always looked forward for that weekend. Now its Thursday night round 1 and the remaining rounds on Friday and Saturday . All for the TV prime times and money. So to me the league screwed it up for the fans. Also liked it held in NY at Radio City. It was a big event for NFL fans. Now it's less exciting IMO.

  12. The thing that stands out to me about Matt is he is "one tough hombre." There have been numerous times when I didn't expect Matt to get back up after being destroyed by some big *** DL. They consistently drive him to the ground and many times I've felt that roughing the passer should be called. Our OL has never been solid since Matt arrived in 2008. Matt is definitely a very good QB and I'm hoping he gets a ring before his career is up. He certainly deserves it!
  13. This is a deal breaker! I now save enough money that I can afford that PSL and tickets to the games.
  14. Hope this helps to keep fans in their seats longer to cheer for the team.
  15. Dear 40 year season ticket holder. As you have heard we are moving into our new stadium MBS. We have appreciated your dedicated support during all these many seasons. If you would like to keep your seats in the new stadium that you have had during all of these years we need your help. We will need 40k as a fee just to hold your seat and in addition the ticket cost for each consecutive season. Otherwise you may need to move up to the nose bleed seats for only a 500.00 fee plus the season ticket cost. Thanks again for your valued support.
  16. For the price you pay to get into the Benz they should give you the snacks for free. You already got hosed on your ticket price. So don't worry, you're paying much more for that hotdog than you think you are. As far as venues go, I enjoy outdoor stadiums much more than domes and there were plenty of fans at the Tampa game and it was definitely a much better football atmosphere there then at the overpriced Benz. Our hotdog was 5.00 but we sat lower level row 1 at the 10 yard line for probably the price you pay to sit upper level nose bleed in the pricey Benz. I knew I was attending a football game in Tampa unlike the stale corporate Benz. Paying thousands for a PSL is a joke and not everyone has that kind of money. A lot of your NFL fans are blue collar fans and the new stadiums with PSLs attached screwed them out of being able to go. That's why the Falcon players are wondering where their fans are. The team needs their support but they can't afford to go anymore.
  17. Loyal fans kicked to the side for more money. That's why the $2 hotdogs is a silly advertising idea. We have become road warriors now. Went to Tampa and had a blast. Lots of Falcon fans. Not a bad drive. Charlotte is also fun. Easy drive from Atlanta area. No corporate atmosphere at either stadium.
  18. Lol
  19. Take away draft picks for conduct detrimental to the league. He should consider it a privilege to be able to coach in the NFL. Don't bite the hand that feeds you.
  20. Why not put the billboard downtown near our stadium. Picture of SP doing his choke imitation and underneath "Hey Sean....YOU can choke on this !!" Rams 26 Aints 23
  21. JMO If the Saints beat the Rams and then beat the AFC champion in our stadium, then take your hat off to them because they will deserve the trophy and bragging rights. If you want to be upset and mad about it, look no further than your teams owner and staff. Its always wait until next year and as has been stated we blew our biggest opportunity in Super Bowl LI. The Saints winning another trophy will not hurt as much as losing our golden opportunity 28-3. The Saints winning another trophy in our stadium will not deter me from being a Falcon fan and it will certainly not ruin my life. There's alot more important things to be concerned about in your life's journey. So if they win...it's all good and if the Falcons don't like it then do something about it. They are going to have to beat the Rams and then either the Chiefs or Patriots. That's a tall order which I don't think is going to happen. If they do ...they earned it. I believe Gurley and Anderson is going to give them fits. Keep Brees on the sideline and he can't beat you. I dislike the Saints just as much as you guys/gals been watching this rivalry since 78. Big Ben...:) Falcons still lead 52-48 all time record against the Saints. Anyway you shake it..it's going to be 2 good games to watch. The Saints are good so give them credit.
  22. The average ticket price to attend the kick ball game is around 20.00 - 225.00 per game. The average price for Real football is 55.00 - 385.00 per game plus a psl fee to buy the season tickets of 500.00 - 45,000. These numbers are not exact. When AB decided to sell the Falcons tickets for MB stadium the longtime season ticket holders were priced out and sold to corporations. Now the owners of these tickets do not really care thus the seats are empty but AB already has his money . This new stadium basically destroyed any home field advantage for the Falcons. It's now mostly corporate owned. The diehard Falcon fans were stuck with buying upper level tickets with a 500.00 PSL fee. + ticket cost. The corporate seats are empty or the ones who attend don't really care and are at all the bars drinking and not in their seats. Arthur got his money and the real football fans got screwed in the process. Its not fair but the NFL is all about the money.
  23. Oh I thought this was TATF ? (Talk about the Falcons). ? Seems to me the ones discussing how great soccer is is on the wrong message board. Need a TAAU board to discuss the little round kick ball game.
  24. Oh by the way for what it's worth I dislike the Saints just as much as anyone else, but Im sure they are getting a good laugh on Falcon fans celebrating a soccer championship. They got a real trophy. We got a little round ball trophy. Ugh...
  25. Yay... A soccer championship. What a boring game. Just can't get into this. I fell asleep watching. The Falcons fans paid the PSLs to help build the new stadium (well corporations did) and the longtime real fans got priced out. Winning a soccer trophy is not even close to being the same as winning a Super Bowl trophy. Lets be real here. When and if ever AB wins a Super Bowl he can hold up a real trophy! Not trying to rain on anyone's parade but just ask yourself... did this really satisfy your hunger for a World Championship?
