That's not true. We get a bad rap for piss poor ownership. Atlanta fans have been crapped on for decades when it comes to bad ownership. But if you wanna talk about Atlanta being a bad sports town, the Falcons are a classic example of Atlanta fans being willing to support a well run organization. Arthur Blank bought the Falcons for an absurd price at the time which caused the NFL to put in a law that wouldn't allow such a deal ever to be made again ($530 Million). They were one of the crappiest teams in terms of fan interest before he bought them. Ever since they have been consistently one of the best attended franchises in the league (#11 last season). The fan interest is about 1000x more palpable among the city than it ever has been.
And when it comes to UGA and college football, yeah it's not even close. They are 90,000 strong for every game in the stadium plus another 40,000 who just show up to tailgate and enjoy the festivities. Granted most of these people are degenerates and bro drunks mixed among 40 somethings who can't let go of their youth and live vicariously through gameday.
Atlanta is a sports town. But when Turner Field is located in the middle of the projects, Phillips Arena is located two blocks from Underground Atlanta and MLK, and there is no transit system in place for 98% of the fans... yeah, they aren't going to be well attended, especially for the weekday sports.
And don't forget that it's one of the most transient cities in America. Most of the sports fans here are fans of their hometown. So if Atlanta is a bad sports town, blame it on the millions of outsiders who have come here and refuse to support any of the hometown teams. In fact, those are the people that make Atlanta a bad sports town. But I digress, it doesn't change the fact that we have horrible sports radio.
He's become unbearable as of late. I like Don La Greca. That's about it. He's always good for a well timed rant which I still can't tell if it's a joke or not. His Mets rant from a few years ago was comedy gold. And then the screaming "ANSWER ME!!!!" bit... lmao.
