Braves’ Move To Cobb County Raises Suspicions (Only A Game)
On Tuesday night, near Atlanta, Georgia, commissioners in Cobb County voted unanimously to approve $392 million in public funds to construct a new stadium for the Atlanta Braves. But many believe the team’s current stadium, which opened in 1997 and is in the middle of the city, is still a perfectly good ballpark.
Others, like Deadspin’s Barry Petchesky, believe that Cobb County and Braves officials forced a publicly opposed move through suspicious means. Petchesky joined Bill Littlefield.

Atlanta Braves and Cobb County: "Let’s be honest here. Sports owners don’t lose money."
It could have been worse. The newly ordained, budget-busting Braves stadium in Cobb County might have included an aquatics center. The fools; they can't even imagine how to manipulate a TIF district.
