If ever there was concrete visual evidence of the necessary banishment of owners from the sidelines, the following clip from Sunday would be it. Arthur Blank came down to field level to watch Matty Ice operate. With six seconds left, and desperately attempting to get into field goal range, Matt Ryan threw a perfect pass to Michael Jenkins on the sidelines. The officials ruled it a completion. Blank disagreed (at 20-second mark, look for the man in a fancy suit, bottom right of the screen):
â†µYeah, Mr. Blank, you might wanna sit the next few plays out. No. Seriously. Go back up to your box and sit them out in one of your Italian leather chairs. We’ll send someone up to explain which team you’re supposed to be rooting for, sir. We understand how confusing all this can be.
