"We share your tremendous excitement that the Atlanta Falcons are headed to the Super Bowl. NFL rules prohibit us from using the Georgia Dome for broadcasting the game. Fans wishing to gather with other fans to watch the game can consider patronizing neighborhood businesses who will be showing the game." — Georgia Dome statement
The NFL title game will be played in Houston, and ticket prices and travel expenses are obvious obstacles for many fans of the Falcons, who have not played in the Super Bowl since after the 1998 season. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m.
Of a possible Georgia Dome viewing party, Reed had said, “I love this idea” on Monday in a Twitter post.
