I don’t know anybody who would spend 20 bucks to wear a Burzum shirt on the off-chance that people will understand their virtuous intent of turning the Vikernes/Burzum imprint on its head. Not sure how many African-Americans would sport a KKK shirt with only the intention of shoving it in the Grand Wizard’s white hood.
No, these people wearing Burzum shirts are clearly village idiots.
The reason for moving is simple. The current location has certain issues that are insurmountable and will only become more problematic over the years. These fundamental issues involve how you, our fans, access Turner Field. There is a lack of consistent mass transportation, a lack of sufficient parking and a lack of direct access to interstates. Furthermore, the Braves do not have control over the development of our immediate surroundings.
Our new location will give us the opportunity to develop the surrounding area of the new ballpark, transforming it into a mixed use, 365-day destination and creating an enhanced atmosphere for our fans during Braves games. There also will be significantly increased access to the site, enhanced parking opportunities, and, generally, easier access to and from major roadways with a variety of other transportation options.
You know what? FUCK YOU FOREVER, BARVES. So there is a lack of public transportation and interstate access (even though you can throw a rock and hit the connector or I-20 from Turner Field), so you’re going to move to COBB COUNTY, which has notoriously rejected public transportation in part because they didn’t want all the scary black people to come from Atlanta and steal their flat screen TVs? Great reasoning, assholes. Just say you’re doing it to protect the delicate sensibilities of your more important (white) fans so they can keep hating poor black people without having to be exposed to the reality in which many exist, end of story.
You basically pillage an impoverished community for twenty years, contributing virtually nothing back, just to wash your hands of the citizens there saying “not my prob, bro,” and finally deciding to spend your precious dollars on an area that doesn’t even need it? And I like how you’re pushing so hard the technicality that you’ll still be in “Atlanta.” 30339 is basically Smyrna with an Atlanta P.O. box, although even if you changed your name to the Smyrna Braves you’d still be a distant second to that town’s most successful export, JULIA FUCKING ROBERTS.
Fucking traitors. Enjoy your rich cultural experience of Olive Garden and Old Navy and squinting to see the skyline. I’d much rather hang out in Mechanicsville.
So today was depressing.
