To eggontheface - No, I didn't hate P.E. as a kid. No, I have never gone to any professional games of any kind. Why pay a fortune to watch something you can watch for free on TV. I'm glad you are happy that the BOC is using our tax $$ to support a loosing team and this ridiculous stadium deal which was done under the bed covers between King Lee, his attorney and the Braves. To Ricky Runner - no we aren't the same person using different "names". I think all of you idiots who want King Lee's ivory tower to be built should have to work, drive and live close to it and deal with the added crime and traffic. They were NOT voted in to make these "under the table" deals with our tax money! Plain and simple.

I would like to respond to this: Firstly if the opposition is such a small minority, why didn't Tim Lee put the issue of the Braves Stadium to a vote - there would have been clarity that the majority was against his idea if he had, that is why. Also I would like to respond to this: “I call them the CAVE people: ‘Come out Against Virtually Everything. And it doesn’t matter what it is, they’re against it. Instead of looking for the good, they always look for the bad.” - Bob Weatherford Interesting, Bob - because many of us were (like me) pro Core Curriculum, pro increased budgets for schools (even if it meant higher taxes), pro the purchase of the Core Curriculum texts for Cobb schools, pro the return of the bus routes that had previously been terminated, pro the improvements to Windy Hill interchange and even pro the toll HOV lanes on the I75! But we are against the Braves Stadium - and do you know why? Because building the stadium puts all those other things I am "pro" in jeopardy.. Because in future the schools won't be able to raise taxes to pay for what the schools need because our taxes will be raised so high already due to all the extra money they will need for the stadium - like more law enforcement, more traffic improvements (because the traffic problems are going to be TERRIBLE due to the Braves stadium), and also because our property prices will all go down because of all this and so the property tax digest will go down with those prices, meaning the schools have less and less money to get by on - this is about our community - about our schools, our emergency services and law enforcement, and everything else being STRAINED just because Tim Lee loves baseball and loves Corporate Welfare for his buddies in the Cobb Chamber

CJN5.. I agree Stupid name. Why not a home town major brand rather than a second rate bank that no one outside the southeast has ever heard of.
