Not surprising, but good news.

The second one. The stadium with the spiral opening.

I like both,
the first one because more of the stands get exposed when it's opened and the view you get of the city
the second one because it looks like a Falcon nest and the 360 degree hd monitor

Definitely the second. The first looks a lot like the stadiums in Houston, Indy, and even Seattle. I think the 2nd would rival Jerry World, and could have Atlanta at the forefront of all sporting event talks(College Football Championship, World Cup, Super Bowl, more Final Fours, national competition in Chic Fil A College Football Classic). I also think it would lead to a home field advantage that could rival Seattle.

I see fans disliking the pantheon because of the shadows that will be on the field.

Love the "nest". It's really unique looking and would bring more attention to the Falcons. I could see a stadium like that hosting a super bowl, and countless other events. Originally, I didn't like the idea of building a new stadium since the dome isn't super old and the place has finally become a home field advantage. But after seeing this design, I'm all for it.

Who cares about any stupid vibrating seats besides 4 year olds?

They got their greedy fingers gripping public funds atleast spend it somewhat wisely.

Vibrating seats are only in specific sections in which you have to pay extra (supposedly the best seats in the house). Unless you're dropping stacks you won't have the chance to care about those seats.

I don't mean to revive old threads. But it has been announced which stadium will be built.

I've been hearing through casual convos with fans and stuff that's the one they were going to pick. Good choice.
