Deal, Reed Want Super Bowl in ATL
(AJC) — Gov.-elect Nathan Deal and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed have teamed up to try and bring the Super Bowl back to Atlanta, and the first move was to meet in Atlanta with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell prior to Thursday night’s game between the Falcons and the Baltimore Ravens at the Georgia Dome. Goodell, after speaking with Deal in the afternoon, seemed to indicate that Atlanta’s best chance of hosting another Super Bowl would be with a new stadium, which would lengthen the process. “I think this is a great community,” the NFL commissioner said. “But as I mentioned to the people earlier today, the competition for the Super Bowl is really at an all-time high, in a large part because of the new stadiums.
