ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) - There's renewed talk of the Buffalo Bills possibly being luredto L.A.
It's the same old talk from the same old guys. The word came outthat Majestic Realty Company, the group trying to bring the NFLback to Los Angeles, has targeted the Bills and the JacksonvilleJaguars as the first teams they'll try to relocate. Great.
What's the matter real estate boys? No more overpriced condos inMarina Del Ray to sell? Targeting the Bills and the Jaguars?
They may be short of pro football in L.A., but they're certainlynot lacking for chutzpah. No stadium yet, ,o track record ofsupport, two teams that have left the L.A. market in the lastcouple of decades, and they're ready to steal someone else's team?Ready to steal the Bills? After three straight years of sellouts inRalph Wilson Stadium for a less than mediocre on field product?
There's no question the Bills future is murky given RalphWilson's reluctance to set a succession plan in place in Buffalo.And the next owner of the Bills has to make plans to replace the 37year old stadium. But it cannot just be about market size.
Tradition, local support, and integrity. I think it stillmatters in the NFL. The vultures in L.A. swooping around the Billsand the Jaguars are not making many friends among other NFL owners.They're pirates. They're scavengers. No one would want to beassociated with them.
