This is why I like our owner Arthur Blank, he wants to win!! Football has been very good in ATL since he took over ownership.
If Arthur Blank is smart he'll implement something like this for when AtlantaFC comes around. via
The way to think of it is to understand blank votes aren't "neutral", they're effectively the lowest-"ranked" vote
Right, b/c that person still left other entries blank.
Falcons fans, soccer fans, ATL fans: Join for a breakfast conversation with Arthur Blank on Aug. 20.
the new Falcons stadium is similar. public money being used there as well. Arthur Blank could surely pay for it himself or privately
I run because it’s so symbolic of life. You find your inner strength & realize you’re capable of so much more than you thought. -Arthur Blank

How about promotion/relegation, except David Beckham and Arthur Blank teams are immune!
Arthur Blank wants the same thing Kraft and soon Ross do: money for NFL stadium, more international soccer games. That's it.
If Arthur Blank is into soccer ... . with pro/rel, he could've bought Silverbacks. Silverback owners get ROI. Arthur builds towards D1.

If you could ask Arthur Blank, Thomas Dimitroff, or Mike Smith one question, what would it be?
News: Tim Tebow has said he is still training and wants to continue to pursue his NFL dream. Tebow played for the Broncos (2010-11), Jets 2012 and was on the Patriots practice squad (2013). He is a Heisman trophy winner and has a playoff win. Tebow might have been successful if he was under better circumstances in New York, what's to say he can't be successful now. Arthur Blank the owner of the Atlanta Falcons has said that London could end up with a franchise of their own or more. He said "I think it will start with an increased number of games. That will be translated into a very successful series of games, and eventually, I think a franchise. And maybe more than one. London's a big City. There have been talks about a London franchise for many years that have since been talked down. Speaking of International games the NFL should consider coming to Australia again. They came out here in 1999 for what was called the "American Bowl" between the Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers. Jermichael Finley was s ...
Considering it's one of America's largest cities, many view Los Angeles as a logical place for the NFL to expand. It's been 20 years since the league had a franchise in the city, but Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank thinks we'll see the NFL return to L.A.
Imagine an entire television station devoted to taking down a president and democratically elected officials in favor of ONE PARTY, gerrymandering and voter control. They claim NOT to be racist, yet Cliven Bundy, Donald Sterling and even Paul Ryan's "poorly chosen words" all identify themselves as...REPUBLICANS. They claim NOT to be pro corporations and yet, Home Depot owner Arthur Blank, Koch Bros. Verizon's CEO, Healthcare industry CEO's ALL happen to be...republican. They claim to be for the people, yet not ONE jobs bill, blocked wage hike bill and they cut food stamps, SNAP and unemployment benefits for those most in need. They claim to love the military, but what they're saying in actuality is they LOVE MILITARY CONTRACTORS. They claim to be religious yet break every teaching Jesus taught or stood for. Sure, let's not fight them. Let's gladly reelect individuals determined to rid us of every safety net, every air and water anti-pollution bill and existing laws. Let's elect those who benefit from the ...

. You Were Created To Soar To Success. "Come to the edge of the nest," said the mother eagle to her babies. The three eaglets peered over and looked down, daring not to go too far near the edge. "We are afraid," they replied, as they hid under the safety of their mother's comfortable wing. "Come here," she encouraged. "And I will help you." They came and with a loving, watchful eye, the mother eagle gently pushed the young eaglets out of their nests. And with a courageous spirit, the eaglets flew upward and onward to fulfil their destined calling. In our journey through life, like the eaglet, we were created to soar upward and onward to new, exciting experiences and a meaningful future. So take a step out of your comfort zone. Extend out; reach ahead, stretch further than where you are today, to get to where you desire to be tomorrow. What really matters to you? Have you clearly defined what you would like in your life?

Campaign GEORGIA 2002... Why Sonny Perdue Won Shortly after the election, in the company of chief Barnes backer Arthur Blank, Sonny Perdue said of his election, “I feel like I just won the Super Bowl, and I didn’t even know I was in the game”. Not too surprising, really. Sonny Perdue was not supposed to be elected Governor of Georgia in 2002. Roy Barnes had everything and everyone who mattered in politics on his side. Sonny Perdue had less than a sixth of Barnes campaign money, no organization, and not much a of campaign. These imbalances alone should have been enough to defeat him, but there was another factor which worked against Perdue. The Republican party didn’t aim for Perdue to win. Governor’s races usually dominate state politics, but the Bush White House had other plans for 2002. The White House used it’s muscle in state after state to concentrate on keeping the U.S. House of Representatives, win back the Senate, and further George Bush’s re-election in 2004. State Go ...

Thanks. I'm sure will have a solid group of Atlanta MLS supporters. Arthur Blank is smart.
Okay, so Beckham's Miami franchise received official approval this last week, but things are picking up for the four remaining slots. San Antonio seems like a lock and may get league approval two to three years ahead of schedule (probably this summer). Next in line is Atlanta where Arthur Blank is in the final negotiation stage with MLS. Strange rumor that LA may get a third team that would be a sister team to Arsenal. The team would be the "L.A. Gunners". Sounds like a gang to me!

Arthur Blank may be a good football owner but it's obvious he doesn't understand soccer.
You can watch the INXS or Schapelle biopics or grab the Oily Boys, Gutter Gods, or Arthur Russell vinyl and ya know, live.
I've been fortunate enough to get to do some pretty cool things over the years but I have never been this excited over a gig. I have the extreme honor of being the keynote speaker at the 2014 National Stuttering Association annual conference. To some of you, it might not be a big deal. You don't get it. I understand. That's ok. But for me, it's like being the starting quarterback in the Super Bowl. In the past few years, speakers have included NFL players, Arthur Blank (owner of the Atlanta Falcons & co-founder of Home Depot), David Seidler (Oscar winning writer of The King's Speech) and VP (then senator) Joe Biden.now there's this little ole fella from Opelika, AL. I promise to make this the best, most memorable speech in the history of the NSA. If you were ever going to come to a conference, this is it. See you in DC.
yup. We all were. Arthur Blank nuked the deal
Only two ppl from the Falcons I give respect to: Julio Jones & Arthur Blank
Tony Gonzalez said Matt Ryan isn't elite.Someone should tell Arthur Blank that

Arthur Blank is on a mission to bring a World Championship to ATL A.S.A.P. Watch for the Falcons to regroup, reload, and rebound big-time from last season's mess.
The Arthur Blank Family of Businesses has changed the "About Us" on their jobs website to "Additionally, there will be two new businesses added to the portfolio including the new Atlanta Stadium and, potentially, an Atlanta MLS team."

David Beckham buys MLS team and looking at Miami as host city...no other MLS teams in the south, they are gonna need some close rivals/opponents to survive. C'mon Arthur Blank, bring the MLS to ATL
Thank u Lord for another beautiful day in Jesus name Amen... Keep praying FB and have a great day! OMG THE SUPERBOWL!! I had always said it would be anybody's game but Seattle Defense totally dominated! The Broncos just wasn't there... Seattle just got so much going on the 12th man, legion of boom, beast mode, Richard Sherman, earl Thomas 3rd, Chancellor & Malcom smith and don't forget coaching... Man that's what the Falcons need Arthur Blank some guys that play like that! # Falconnation!
Most years on the day following the bowl I have "post football depression" (it's a medical term, look it up). Well, not this year! After a disappointing Falcons season, and a CRAP bowl game, you should have seen the dance routine I executed down the street at the final play of the game to Hall and Oates "You Make My Dreams Come True"! It's over!!! Now to prepare for next season! Arthur Blank, meeting at 9! LETS GO BRAVES!
Paul Allen and his Microsoft money just bought a Superbowl. Obviously Jerry Jones and Arthur Blank aren't spending their money right.

somebody please text Arthur Blank and tell him get dat money right cuz we want Clowney
If I'm Arthur Blank, I'd throw top money at one of these Seattle executives. You realize majority of the defense was drafted in later rounds?

I'm thinking Arthur Blank kidnapped the Broncos and put the Falcons their uniforms.
Five years...260 weeks...1,825 days...2,333,000 minutes... What would you do with it? Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel. Shakespeare wrote "Hamlet," "Othello," "King Lear," "Macbeth" and five other immortal plays. Three years after being fired from their jobs, Arthur Blank and Bernie Marcus created a business model called Home Depot and went public with their idea, with annual sales of $1B. At age 30, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos was living in a 500 sq ft apartment. Five years later his net worth was $10B.
I live in Desert Hot Springs, CA. I'm a register voted, the children in this town only have the Boys & Girls Club as far as activates and/or entertainment. Now the city has no money in the budget to keep the contract, the town has been depleted of all it's fund.

It was a trying season for everyone involved with the Atlanta Falcons. This goes from owner Arthur Blank, all the way down to it's fans. Coming into this season the Falcons had high hopes, they were coming off a season in which the were 10 yards from a Super Bowl, or a Harry Douglas trip, depending on how you look at it. Either way, they were the NFC's runner up. Most people saw the Falcons final two games against Seattle and San Francisco and thought if the team was so dominant through three quarters, their problem must have come from the lack of a legitimate running threat. However, the real problem was hidden, if by nothing more than luck.    In it's 2012-2013 campaign the Falcons managed to stay fairly healthy, they had a few injuries here and there, but outside of Brent Grimes, none were what football experts would call major. For the most part players who sustained injuries throughout the season came back weeks later. This past season was entirely different.    Before the season even really got ...
Earlier today I read in a book of Bernie Marcus and Arthur Blank and how they created Home Depot and made millions.
words of Craig Hardegree: "Why do conservatives want to do away with Pope Francis’ First Amendment rights? Why do they want to restrict freedom of speech for the Holy Father? Why can’t the Pope stand up for his religious beliefs without being attacked and threatened by conservatives? Why are conservatives trying to silence God? Ken Langone, the billionaire who put together the initial financing for Arthur Blank and Bernie Marcus to start Home Depot, has delivered a threatening message from another millionaire to Cardinal Timothy Dolan, warning that if Pope Francis doesn’t quit talking ugly about rich people’s lack of compassion, rich people are going to quit donating money to the church. If you don’t see how that is a huge affront to the Holy Father’s freedom of speech, I’ll translate it down to where we can all understand it: How would you feel if some cable channel warned some actor that if he didn’t quit talking ugly about *** people, the cable channel would quit paying him money to act ...

Since Jon Gruden brought up Tony Gonzalez I don't get why Thomas Dimitroff and Arthur Blank didn't send him back to when they had the chance and KC was interested at the deadline. the were already done and there was nothing to gain except KC's money and/or a draft pick...

Must Falcons owner Arthur Blank always be hovering on the sidelines? There he was yesterday in Green Bay all decked out in his finest topped by red, pullover Falcons logo head gear. Most owners aren't so visible. It seems to me that Mr. Blank would be better served being elsewhere rather than looking like a scornful, doting fool.
It has been reported that Arthur Blank of the Falcons/Home Depot has been in talk with the FIFA soccer leagues to bring an expansion team to Atlanta, Will the Georgia Dome or Turner Field become a soccer Stadium?

Since the City of Atlanta is effectively subsidizing the Falcon's new stadium (via hotel taxes) should the city share in the increase in net worth of the Falcon's franchise as a result of the new stadium? Or does Arthur Blank and company just get the windfall?

Although the Falcons arguably have been the NFL's biggest disappointment this season, NFL Media columnist Michael Silver reports owner Arthur Blank expects Smith and Dimitroff to "rectify this with a vengeance" next season. As a FALCOHOLIC I couldn't agree more!
Cobb tax money to be used on the new stadium? Waste or not... Let me see. It would draw a lot of sales tax dollars into the county. It would give us something other than Six Flags or Whitewater or National Parks or malls, all of which are good. There are times when I go into that area of the county and it is very nice and convenient. In fact, I was there for a breakfast last month. Easy drive. I can see it as a good investment but I am willing to have my mind changed by a good contradictory argument. Waste of money? Here's what I think is a waste of money: Sidewalks and 4' chainlink fences along Barrett Parkway. If you can't find enough walking space in 3,000 acres of Kennesaw Mtn National Battlefield Park, you should put a sidewalk along every 6 lane road in the county close to it? A side walk wider than most driveways alongside Dallas Hwy. Same logic. I've never seen a pedestrian on either. Five and six lane intersections complete with turn lanes, raised medians, and sidewalks leading to nowhere. Di ...

Should Arthur Blank get rid of those expensive suits and go back to the Home Depot orange aprons .
I loved the one shot of Arthur Blank (owner of the Falcons) skulking around the sidelines in deep thought. He was pacing behind Mike Smith's back and you could almost read his mind..."What am I to do with these kids?" For a team that demanded a new stadium, or else they'll leave ATL...this is suitable karma.
Breaking News: Tony Gonzalez still has the opportunity to go to the Superbowl, all that needs to happen is for Arthur Blank to buy him a ticket!
Maybe at the end of the year Daniel Snyder (Redskins owner) and Arthur Blank (Falcons owner) can do a joint firing press conference for Mike Smith and Mike Shannahan. Would be the only positive thing either team has done this year.
A couple of observations for you football fanatics: 1 Arthur Blank sleeps in a coffin and hates the smell of garlic. 2 Ronnie Lamarque is one irritating, yet ubiquitous human being. 3 Sean Payton enjoyed his Roasted Falcon for the second time this year on the charter home. End.
Arthur Blank should make the Falcons go back to those jerseys they wore in the early 90s when they sucked... The ones with the red helmets when Chris Miller was the QB lol.
I have to be honest. I fell kinda bad for Arthur blank. He just reminds me of a poor old grandpa down on his luck. Lol

In its third printing, Spores from Sharnoth and Other Madnesses, truly fulfils reviewers' comments it is a masterful professional debut collection from leading Australian weird literary figure, Leigh Blackmore. The collection "establishes Blackmore as one of the leading weird poets of our time, fit to be mentioned with the likes of Bruce Boston, G. Sutton Breiding, Ann K. Schwader ..." -S. T. Joshi. "It belongs on the same shelf with August Derleth's Dark of the Moon and Lin Carter's Dreams from R'lyeh, to be treasured for its elegant lines, spooky sonnets, cosmic vistas, and, since Blackmore is a genuine poet and not just a pastichist, occasional departures from all expectations." -Darrell Schweitzer. "Magnifique! Sobresaliente! Mumtaaz! [Blackmore] definitely has the touch ..." -Richard L. Tierney. Within are devotions to H. P. Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos, Clark Ashton Smith, Arthur Machen, and paeans to the gods of Poetry. Wonderful poetry of fantasy, the supernatural and dark imagination abounds ...

Shane Ladner faking his Purple Heart award Seems odd that the two DOD DD-214 records have no Purple Hearts yet the VA's DD-214 does have a Purple Heart. That's easy to answer. The veteran gives the VA Medical Department a copy of his DD-214.not the DOD so it's not that hard to make your own DD-214. It will be real interesting how the lawyer found the clerk who signed the DD-214 in 2004. My DD-214 was typed in 1971 with two Purple Hearts and the paper hasn't turned yellow. He was in High School when he was wounded in Panama.nice cover story. Lastly I was an Officer for a year before I got my Top Secret Clearance. - news paper report- But Ladner has a yellowed DD214 dated October 2004, when he says he left National Guard service. That form lists a Purple Heart. Ladner's legal team had retired GBI document examiner Arthur Anthony check out the certificate. He determined the clerk's signature on the form was "original wet ink." Anthony told ther AJC he found "no evidence of erasures, alterations or manipulati ...

Tony Gonzalez said Tuesday that the biggest factor in his decision to return to the Atlanta Falcons for the 2013 season was his 12-year-old son, Nikko, who persuaded him to continue playing rather than retire from the NFL. In an interview with ESPN's "SportsCenter," the Pro Bowl tight end said the reason he had been leaning toward retiring after last season was the chance to spend more time with his family, but Nikko told him he owed it to himself to take another shot at winning a Super Bowl. "Really the biggest factor for me to come back this year was my son, Nikko. He doesn't live with me, he lives with his mom and stepdad out in Los Angeles during the football season, and it's been that way his whole life. And I just said, 'You know what, I want to spend more time with my son.' And that was really one of the main reasons I was going to retire," Gonzalez said. "But he was the one who talked me back into it." Gonzalez, 37, said he also received calls from Falcons owner Arthur Blank, coach Mike Smith and ...
New Falcons stadium design gets approved, here's what it might look like:
Lessons learned from Arthur blank- kick scream and cry and you get an expensive, sleek, and UGLY stadium to replace a perfectly good one.
Atl fans your qb is in the ladt year of his rookie contract. How soon do you want them to get the deal done. Some.sources say they want to wait until the season is done. I think sooner would be smarter. TB5

While I'm on finding some awesome new talent, I must say that I'm appalled at the state of sports media.

The Atlanta/Gleason situation only sheds light on the bottom feeding...

My only problem the Mayhem in the A.M. firings is that the standard isn't applied consistantly. If that bit got them fired, then they should have been fired YEARS ago. I used to listen to Mayhem every morning, and I've heard them go in on dead celebrities, Michael J. Fox, Freddie Roach, among others. Matter of fact that robot voice that Cellini did is the voice he's used for years imitating Stephen Hawking, another ALS sufferer. I feel the firing, albeit deserved, was more of a money motivated move on 790's part. 790 the Zone is circiling the drain anyway. I think after this they'll end up folding up their tent sooner than later.
Today in History June 18, 1815 Waterloo The Napoleonic Wars began in 1799, pitting Emporer Napoleon Bonaparte and his Grand Armée against a succession of national coalitions. The first five such coalitions formed to oppose him and all were defeated. The War of the 6th Coalition ended in 1814 with Bonaparte's defeat and exile to the Mediterranean island of Elba, and the Bourbon King Louis VXIII restoration to the throne, lasting 111 days before Napoleon was back at the head of another army. The Congress of Vienna declared him an outlaw on March 13, 1815, and Austria, Prussia, Russia and the UK bound themselves to put 150,000 men each into the field to end his rule. Napoleon struck first, taking 124,000 men of l'Armee du Nord on a pre-emptive strike against the Allies in Belgium. Intending to attack the Coalition armies before they combined, he struck and defeated the Prussian forces under Gebhard von Blücher near the town of Ligny. Napoleon then turned his attention to the coalition forces under the Lo . ...
