Atlanta Baptist Church’s Hard Ball Stadium Negotiations

The Friendship Baptist church is all that stands between the Atlanta Falcons and the perfect location for their new stadium. These church owners, however, have been far from amicable in their negotiations.

The Friendship Baptist Church rejected the team’s initial $13.5 million offer for church building and property. The Church’s counterproposal requested nearly double that amount – a cool $24.54 million. The Falcons then increased their second offer to $15.5 million dollar, and now it’s in the Church’s court.

With a name like “Friendship” Baptist, one would hope all parties can come to a win-win solution. I’d have to imagine Falcons fans flocked to Friendship Baptist this weekend for mass, hoping to get their prayers answered.
