BREAK THIS DOWN: In Atlanta, Jeff Schultz wrote, “Once you fan away the smoke, this is what happened Thursday: Blank affirmed previous comments that the public portion of his $1 billion Valhalla would be capped at $200 million. After hearing complaints from officials and residents (read: potential ticket and T-shirt buyers), he also vowed to assume responsibility for $50 million in infrastructure costs around the stadium and promised that his family foundation would invest another $15 million in the scarred neighborhoods that surround the proposed venue.” This shows that Blank will "really try to make this work and appease the masses." Schultz: "For that, I commend him." But it is "not nearly enough” (AJC.com, 3/7).
