The woman entered the train and was clearly under the influence of something and demanded my friend's SIL get up. She refused and the woman proceeded to beat her unconscious while numerous bystanders sat there and watched. A few tried to get the crazy woman off of her, but she was so jacked up on whatever drug it was that they could not pull her off. It wasn't until the got to the next station and police were notified that they were finally able to rescue her. It took several police tazers to knock the crazy woman out so she could be arrested.
    A few? 3 or 4 people couldn't pull a woman off of another woman???

    That is what I asked, too. The woman who was attacked was with one of her girl friends so she wasn't much help. She said that the attacker was nuts--like she was on LSD laced crack or something. The people who tried to help her could not get the woman off of her. They described the attacker acting like a rabid animal. The majority of the people on the train just sat there and watched. They were afraid to step in. It happened pretty fast between stops--the first stop after the Dome isn't a long distance--so the police were able to act quickly but it took quite a bit of force to get the woman off of the victim.

    ETA: She had to have metal plates put in her face because her cheek bones were crushed and she had a brain bleed. It was horrific.

    Call me an elitist or whatever but the last thing I want to do is to be packed like cattle into a crowded MARTA train after spending 3+ hours packed into the Dome. There are going to be huge lines to get on the trains. Instead, park in one of the surface lots near Ivan Allen Blvd and Williams street, have a nice stroll after the game, and then jump right onto I75/85.

    yeah i am taking marta from the dunwoody station. it's a good ride in and you get release outside of the perimeter and can jump on 285 and head home, etc.. fans just need to be patient on the way out.. marta is very very congested, but i still like it a lot better than driving in unless i have a plan to bring the grill and tailgate.

    Going to be awesome to Ramma Jamma the UGA fans on the way back on Marta ;-). We did that to the Florida fans in 09. They were pretty cool about it and told us to stomp Texas' guts out.

    You're right though, Marta is the way to go unless you just enjoy sitting in traffic. If the train is too crowded, just wait, have a snort or two from the flask and take the next one.

    There are a number of them so I can't say for sure. I think they jack up the prices a little bit for football games but I think they'll be in the $5 to $10 range.

    I wouldn't advise driving to the game Saturday night. There is also a concert at Philips Arena. Traffic will be a mess. Take MARTA, Its Smarta!
