What Should Atlanta Falcons Call New $1 Billion Stadium?

Losers Roost comes to mind!!

************************************************** *******

The Georgia Dome isnít a bad place, but itís been the home of the Atlanta Falcons for 21 years and the team apparently feels itís time for an upgrade. Falcons owner Arthur Blank and Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed have reached a deal on a new $1 billion stadium for the Dirty Birds in what locals call ďthe ATL.Ē

Reed and the city of Atlanta have agreed to pay $200 million of the cost, which will come strictly from taxes on hotels and not regular taxpayer funds. Thatís definitely a relief to the citizens of Atlanta, but the deal isnít finalized yet; it still has to be approved by the Georgia World Congress Center (which owns the Georgia Dome and will own the new stadium), the Fulton County Commission and the Atlanta City Council before construction on the new stadium can begin.

The plan right now is the stadium will be ready by the 2017 NFL season and speculation is it would likely host a Super Bowl soon thereafter as the Georgia Dome has hosted two NFL title games. Since he Georgia World Congress Center will own the new stadium, it likely wonít have a sponsored name (ex. Gillette Stadium), so what should the Falconsí new home be called? Weíre looking for the most creative name! Comment below with your suggestions or tweet them to us with the hashtag #RML.

I liked D_it_up's suggestion in another thread:

... now that's good stuff, .

They could make a documentary while they are constructing the new stadium with Mel Gibson doing commentary. It could be called Atlanta Falcons: Beyond Overrated Dome
