Roundup: Falcons’ Blank sees need for new stadium

The Falcons moved into the Georgia Dome in 1992. Since then, 25 NFL teams have built new stadiums.

Perhaps feeling a bit envious of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones‘ billion-dollar palace, Falcons owner Arthur Blank has said in recent months that he’d like a new place for his team to play.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Blank believes the city needs a modern facility in order to keep up with other world-class metropolitan areas. Of course, a new stadium also would help the Falcons keep their competitive edge:

    “The Falcons are falling behind other teams in the NFL in terms of the experience for our fans,” Blank said at the Atlanta Press Club Thursday. “We want the right environment for our fans and for our sponsors.”
