I'm from Buffalo, and yes I am a Buffalo Bills fan, Sympathy Aprreciated
But in all Seriousness, this article blames a small market and an aging stadium as key points to why the Bills are the most troubled franchise in the NFL. I disagree... I do however agree with their point of an aging owner. Ralph Wilson is 93 years old and has stated that "he will die with the team" and has refused to sell it.
Now The same speculation was made about the Buffalo Sabres. They blamed a small market for the troubled problems. Then.. a real businessman (Tom Golisano) stepped in, purchased the team, and transformed the Sabres into one of the top tier businesses in the NHL while also taking us to a Presidents Trophy and the Eastern Championship game within his 5 year tenure as owner. Then, not only that.. put us in a position where Terry Pegula (now one of the wealthiest owner is ALL sports) purchased the team and has vowed to win us a stanely cup.
Deliver a product that is worth it and people will spend money on the games. We have a population of 1.3 million people in WNY and that doesnt include nearby Rochester and Toronto. What we need is a new owner who has vision for the future (much like Tom Golisano.. who has already expressed interest in having ownership in the Bills organization).
Until then, I will suffer with a sub-par tema who struggles to make the playoffs http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100000 ... line_stack
