    Stating the obvious is now news in Buffalo

    Interesting little article in the news on the future debt burden of any new owner of the Bills.

    So I am curious if any of the people who said the Bills would do just fine in OP with a new owner are still singing the same tune. Bueller..Bueller..Bueller


    The article uses the number of $500M for the Bills when in reality, the value is around $750M and climbing. The debt service on that is enough to kill most teams, including the Bills under the current small market income in the NFL.

    So if you do not want to say goodbye to the stadium in OP, get ready to say goodbye to the Bills when RW expires.

    On this evenings paper it has Buffalo Bills at 880 millon ? I only glanced at it could be wrong. Anyway it was the lowest number of worth between that teams that were solid, and moved away.

    Multi-use retractable roof statium on Perry St with direct rail from Niagara Falls/Tonawanda, Lockport/Amherst, Rochester/Batavia, Aurora/OP/Hamburg, etc.

    86 the skyway and anything that looks like crap along the buffalo river, and build new around the first ward.

    Put in a few quality snowmobile trails for the winter.

    Downsize all the authority, hire a few extra EMT's and people will come!

    Dallas Cowboys

    Did anyone get a chance to read the article in the Buffalo News Sunday concerning football tickets prices???

    It appears in 2009, Dallas fans will have to purchase a license for $50,000 for a single seat, just to have the right to purchase the ticket for $340/per game.

    At least the license is good for 30 years..................

    I guess we are a small market.......
    I never said I had no idea about most of the things you said I said I had no idea about.

    Buffalo is a small, sad, overtaxed market
