A sensitive question, but one that is on everyone's mind.

Worst case scenario is Bon Jovi followed by Donald Trump.

The other potential buyers all want to keep the Bills here. Pegula is highest on my list.

Ultimately, I think the buyer will be either Pegula or someone that hasn't been named yet.

This x1000

I've heard that if he bids, no once can financially compete with him (should he be willing to spend a lot).

God I hope he really put in a bid. Just so this looming specter of the team potentially moving is finally gone.

Well Trump could potentially out bid him but Trump also said he is not going to overspend. He also said in the same interview that he believes the Bills are worth 800 million. But it is rare for a NFL franchise to go on the market so I expect someone else to beat him.

Unless he just low balled it to get other potential owners to try to buy it cheaper and his whole interview was just a smokescreen...

Aren't they legally bound to the city until 2020? I thought I read somewhere that they would have to pay a ridiculous amount of cash to leave before then, regardless who the owner is.

EDIT: Found it. http://www.buffalorumblings.com/buffalo-bills-news/2014/3/27/5552758/buffalo-bills-stadium-lease-relocation-fee-ralph-wilson

Looks like it's $400M to leave before 2019.

Sorry if this has already been answered on here before, but since Pegula owns the Sabres, the NFL rules prohibit him from owning a football franchise because he owns the Sabres, correct? Does he have a family member to pass the Sabres down to?

I totally agree with the majority of you guys though, Pegula is by far our best bet.

I could be wrong but I think as long as both franchises are in the same town then there is no conflict. It is only if one team is in one town and another perspective team is in another town that an owner must pass ownership of one of them down to a family member.

They are in the same market so it doesn't matter.

The rule states that you cannot own a team in another NFL market. So technically if the owner of the Chicago Blackhawks wanted to buy the Bills he would first have to sell or move the blackhawks to a non nfl market because they are in the same market as the Bears. But if the LA Kings owner wanted to buy the team he could because LA does not have a football team and is not in a NFL market.

And that is why Jon Bon Jovi is working with that Toronto group to buy the team. Yes they own the Raptors and the Maple Leafs but they are allowed to buy the team because Toronto isn't a NFL Market

Anyone. Anyone but Bon Jovi. Dude is a snake. He WILL move the team to Toronto before he even visits OBD.
