Let Liberty Media foot the bill for a playground for overpaid, spoiled, arrogant men to play a children's game the taxpayers should not be funding the first cent toward this project.
"The Braves and Cobb County have had a team of legal experts confirm that the financing approach is not only legal, it is the customary approach governments have used to fund economic development initiatives all across the country," said Morgan.
"The county already had plans in place to invest over $1 billion into this area to improve traffic here in Cobb County," Morgan said. "I hear a lot about the Braves and how much traffic congestion it will cause. When you sit down Nike Air Max Tavas All Blue and think about it, you're looking at 81 games that will be played here at home.
