Braves fans were all stunned by the news this morning that the team is moving to a new stadium in Cobb County in 2017. Reactions were, at best, very mixed.
Cobb County is aaaawwwwful. Horrible traffic, no option to MARTA to games. Getting to a game at rush hour? Forget it. http://t.co/kRbMq4b98s— Laura Seay (@texasinafrica) November 11, 2013
My feeling about the @Braves coming to Cobb County is similar to how a little girl would feel if Justin Bieber came to their house.— Michael Schmidt (@MSchmidt_5) November 11, 2013
Rooting for the Cobb Braves just isn't the same . . .— Phil the Bucket (@Phil_the_Bucket) November 11, 2013
Why on earth would the @Braves think moving to Cobb County would be a good idea. Cobb County isn't Atlanta!— Brantlee Fields (@brantleemarie) November 11, 2013
Hate to break it to you #braves fans. Cobb parkway isn't much better than where the stadium is now...— kody ingram (@KodywithaK723) November 11, 2013
So if you sit high enough at the new Braves ballpark in Cobb County, will you be able to see the team's AAA stadium in Gwinnett? #jokes— Austin Karp (@AustinKarp) November 11, 2013
Personally, as a fan driving up from Middle Georgia, I'm really upset. Turner Field is the only stadium I've watched the Braves in and I have a lot of amazing memories there years of birthday parties there to from meeting up with friends from twitter and such. Now it'll take probably three hours to get to a decent game when it used to take 75 minutes. Plus, what will happen to my brick?!
