Good news for Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank!

In addition to the hundreds of millions of dollars in public funds that the team will receive to help construct a new stadium, it will also enjoy some financial help from the NFL. The football league's team owners today approved a $200 million loan to Blank and company. Reporteth the Associated Press:

Blank, speaking at the NFL's spring meetings, called the decision by the team owners an "important milestone" in moving the project forward.

"The NFL has supported new stadium construction through various means for decades," he said. "Our club owners understand that investments ... are important to the long-term strength of the league, and we thank them for their support."

Still no word on which stadium design Falcons executives prefer: the more conservative airplane hangar/British soccer stadium or the Stargate/portal to hell.
