Recapping the headlines and news involving the Falcons from the week of May 29…

Georgia Dome expected to be in red without NFL season

The Georgia World Congress Center approved two budgets this week, based around whether the Falcons play this season or do not. If the Falcons do not play, then the Georgia Dome is expected to lose $1.5 million for the 2012 fiscal year, which ends next June. With an NFL season this year, then the dome is expected to reap $4.6 million in profit. Without an NFL season, the Georgia Dome would see about $25 million in lost revenue, dropping from about $57 million if the Falcons played down to $32 million if they did not. Most of that revenue comes from parking, catering, and rentals. (Source: Atlanta Business Chronicle)
