    Completely disagree. Parking prices for Braves games ranges from around $15 (cheapest lot, farthest away) to $20 for the Red Deck which is right next to the battery outside the stadium. Those arenít premium prices. You can buy single game parking passes online for those prices. In fact, parking passes for this season go on sale Friday and Iíll be grabbing my Red Deck pass for opening day.

    I parked in this same deck last year and, after the game, I was on I-285 heading home in about 15 minutes. Thatís a whole lot quicker then I ever got out of Turner Field.

    Iím not sure about shuttles but, I do know they have pedestrian bridges going over all the roads so walking from other lots is much easier then it was at Turner Field. They also have more parking spots compared to Turner Field. IMO, parking is improved at SunTrust vs the Ted. Not saying it is perfect but, itís better.

    I don't think many "puddles" or "drips" get 300,000 people watching a preseason CFL game, and make television networks start to pick up games out of the blue.

    The fact Garrett Gilbert is the league's best passer should tell you that, but on the flipside you have more dominant running games and defenses. I think its funny that Manziel is going to the worst team in the league, and probably makes them the best with his name on the dotted line.

    Seeing as how he was just banned from the CFL, I wouldnít get too excited about his latest stop.

    I wouldn't put too much stock into that. There are rumors that the reason the CFL is hesitant to reveal why he was banned is mostly because it was or violating a dumb rule the CFL has... They don't want you to leave the CFL. The CFL tries to keep players under strict contracts where they don't just come and bolt to the NFL. Its a big reason to why you aren't hearing as many success stories from CFL players anymore. The rumor was that Johnny was in the talks with the XFL and AAF about possibly joining where he could come back to a stateside organization that supported him getting back to the NFL. When the CFL got wind of it they ended his contract, banned him, and kept the reason secret because they don't want to have players turned off by that rule.

    And based on the concerns in this article, I can't see it changing. IOW, this league looks like it's done for.
    If things don't change it's hard to imagine they survive a head to head with the XFL. Openly lobbying for the NFL's help at this point could be strategic though. The message could be hey, NFL you don't want the XFL to succeed and neither do we.
    Apologies if I said anything that could be construed as a personal insult.

    I don't think the NFL cares about the success or failure of Vince McMahon and the XFL at all. If they did then they would've already secured the AAF for the next 5 years. Vince Mcmahon was more of a threat to the NFL in 2001 than he is now . Had Vince went forward with the league a few years ago then he probably would've been a big threat to them, but now I think most NFL fans have came back to their senses and are putting their jerseys back on and are watching the NFL again.
