That's good to know.

As a kid, I remember my dad taking me to a game at the old Veteran Stadium in Philadelphia. Boy, those fans ... SCARY.

I guess it made sense that they had a courtroom & a holding jail cell on the bottom level .

Yeah, I heard Philly is bad, same for NY/NJ as well. I've been gone a while now but I always had a good time in ATL.

The Philly Thugs carried it over to Lincoln Financial Field, was there a few years ago. Had to be escorted along with a few other Who-Dats to the parking lot for our own safety. One of the security officers said when you get to your car leave quickly and don't stop for anything..

Re: Atlanta Advice

The stadium is really nice, as well. I've been to 6-7 soccer matches in there, but this Sunday will be my first football game. Can't wait to see our Saints take care of business in the new Benz! It only makes sense Mercedes would change the sponsorship to Atlanta, as they built the U.S. headquarters here.

Re: Atlanta Advice

Son just checked in, said it looks and sounds like a home game. His seats are right in the middle of the Falcons nest. Let’s go!

Re: Atlanta Advice

Final check in.....Son said it was a great trip. Lots to see and do, people were decent in town and at the game. Some friendly banter, but overall okay. He represented well, he loved seeing how well we travel (his biggest take away).

Re: Atlanta Advice

Strong representation from Saints fans yesterday. I'd say it was about 60/40 failclowns/saints fans.
