No, not happy at all. Here's hoping we get some good players in the draft or next season is already sunk.
At least, not in the short term, anyways. Your most logical transplant locale can't host the NFL more than once a year, and that other place is being fought over by a dozen other people, none of whom have a stadium built.
I hope so, but I have no idea who would buy the team that wants us here. Jim Kelly has always said he's had an ownership group set up, but he's in no place to do anything right now (fighting bad cancer).
Right now they're safe though. Moving the team in the next 6 years would have a lease-breaking fee of $450 million. The state has been very vocal about wanting a new stadium in Buffalo and if that gets done, I'm sure a 40 year lease or something like that would be signed.
Still, this has been an issue hanging over the Bills for literally as long as I've been a fan of them. Its almost hard to believe it finally happened.
On another forum whence I frequent, it was pointed out that Ralph Wilson is also the reason why the Raiders are still around and kicking. He personally paid debts incurred by the Oakland AFL ownership (which included Al Davis at the time) to keep the team solvent - and the league from having a team on the west coast cease operations.
I always wondered why this wasn't already covered under "no using the ball as a prop." Clearly this is going to ruin the excitement of the game, just like it has in the college level.[DOUBLEPOST=1395867669,1395867550][/DOUBLEPOST]
