Of course, but nobody can doubt the damage it did. Just like it is easy for all these people to trot out the "Atlanta was a bad idea" tripe as well. Turner Sports had a good track record of properly financing multiple professional sports franchises (whether or not they were successful on the field, they were not suffering for a lack of investment) and there was no reason, at that time, to expect it would not continue. Most of the people talking crap probably think Atlanta Spirit Group was awarded the expansion franchise.
