    I'll look for the source.  

    Also, the site's address is still Atlanta, so the tax proceeds should remain there.

    The current site is awful to drive to, and irritating to those who use those exits during games who aren't even going to the game, but I don't see how the new site will be better.

      “It is my understanding that our neighbor, Cobb County, made a strong offer of $450M in public support to the Braves and we are simply unwilling to match that with taxpayer dollars.”

      Apparently what I read was wrong.  I can't believe the tax-hating Cobb County folk will like this.
