Falcons owner Arthur Blank didn’t seem to take seriously a report that the Falcons would be moved to Los Angeles.
Blank arrived in New Orleans Thursday night for a series of Super Bowl-related functions. In an interview with Jeff Schultz of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Friday, he said he was “confident and comfortable” with where the team is in the process to build a new stadium downtown, while neither confirming nor denying that a new funding deal could be reached as early as next week.
“It was humorous. My reaction was: Where did this come from? It certainly didn’t come from us,” the Falcons’ owner said Friday.
