There are a lot of question surrounding the Buffalo Bills. The NFL Draft is coming up, and the Bills are on the market. But, can they Stay the Buffalo Bills may be the biggest question. This year could be the beginning of a rear “complete rebuild.”
For fan of the Bills this time of year is normally exciting, and full of anticipation. But, this off-season is different from any other in Buffalo Bills history. We have no idea who will be the new owner of our team, and we have no idea how long the Buffalo Bills will remain the Buffalo Bills. With rumors flying all over the place, and names of Billionaires being dropped left, and right; it is more about the what if’s.
I look at this off-season as a great mystery; it is going to have the promise of a better season, and we are all going to have our Mock Drafts, but no matter who is selected or traded for it is not going to do much to ease the worry. Relocation aside, I have one question. How far is too far away to call the Bills the Buffalo Bills?
I say anything outside of Erie County is too far. If a new stadium is built-in Niagara County, I do not think we can call them the Buffalo Bills. That simple belief brings to mind the possibility of the New York Bills. The Bills are truly the only team that has a stadium in New York. The thought of Re-branding the Bills is a nightmare comes true, but at least they would still be in WNY.
No matter who buys the Bills, it’s clear that New York State and the fans want to keep the team in the “Greater Buffalo area.” That’s a catch 22, the Greater Buffalo area, leaves a lot of land as an option. For the sake of slowing down the argument, the Dallas Cowboys moved to Arlington, TX. But, Arlington is only 20 miles away from Dallas, and both are in Dallas County.
So, I ask again. How long can the Buffalo Bills stay the Buffalo Bills?
