Russ Brandon announces Ralph Wilson has died.


One of the founding owners of the AFL. Was the last of the original AFL owners. WWII veteran. PFHOF 2009 enshrinee.

RIP.

Truly saddened to hear about the passing of Ralph Wilson. Without him, my love of Football and the Buffalo Bills wouldn't exist. He was a true NFL pioneer. R.I.P Mr. Wilson.

This hits pretty hard. This day will be remembered by myself for a very long time. RIP the only owner I have ever known.
