There really was no reason to build a new $1.5 billion stadium, other than massive egos and gullibility on the part of the political leaders in Atlanta. However, in fairness, at least Arthur Blank is picking up most of the costs of the new stadium. So, that's better than a lot of the really bad stadium deals around the country.

That didn't make the new stadium "necessary," though.
