WRONG.
After announcing that private financing has dried up for now Mandalay is in no position to even think about a foolish move of this nature.
They are losing the PR war badly with stuff like this.
Whether or not the GC takes out the performance bond makes no difference the public is getting a very bad taste in it's mouth when they think that the Braves could even think to fine the city for a GC failing to complete a CITY funded stadium on time.
Polling by WWAY indicates a loot of dissent against this deal.
No private financing for now.
The Chairman of the County Commission saying NO county funds to be used
Cameron family attaching strings to the land donation
Trask's pulling out of the private financing deal

And all of this happened before they mailed the lease to the city.
This is certainly something they would KNOW would cause an uproar - this is not a bargaining chip.
Mandalay/Atlanta is looking VERY bad and I can't believe they didn't know it.
Best Regards
Vog
