    Speaking of Trump, whom I have never met, I have had the pleasure of meeting his daughter once. What an impressive young woman. Very, very bright. Very, very well spoken and polite. Impressed me as being mature well beyond her age. Also, very, very beautiful, but came across as very tasteful and elegant. 

    From what I have heard, really the opposite of her dad.

    Donald Trump is free to make a bid if he so desires but as in virtually all transactions of this kind it takes a willing buyer AND a willing seller.  I'd be surprised if the other 31 owners supported his purchase of a franchise.

    And I often disagree with George Will but in the case that I cited he is spot on.  I will add that in addition to being a bloviating ignoramus, Trump is pluperfect twit.

    Well, time will tell.   If it gets as far as an owners vote I'll be surprised if he doesn't get the necessary votes.  He doesn't need all 31, he "only" needs 24.

    And, without trying to change your mind, have you noticed how many times he's been in Kraft's luxury box for Pats games?   Did you know they are very good longtime friends?   Think Kraft's opinion would carry any weight among other owners?

    It sure would get interesting if Trump came in with the highest offer and then was turned down by the owners.  I'm sure that would go over well with the Wilson family.

    Trump still fancies himself a maverick I don't think other owners want anyone rocking the boat too much with the NFL at a peak n popularity and $$$

    If Trump has the right partners around him and promises to keep the Bills near the current location it may be hard to find fault. 

     

    They absolutely need a new stadium. The Ralph is a slightly larger version of the old Patriots dump.  It's not very accessible with limited amenities. They need a new building in a new location.  There is plenty of space, but not a lot of potential corporate sponsors. It will take more than a new football stadium to rebuild that depressed area. ...I wonder if Trump and The Roger would consider metro Toronto to be part of the greater Buffalo area?  Lot better economy, with more people/sponsors. Ralph Wilson always had his eye to the north. It's about 100 miles away. If the stadium was in between they could pitch it as similar to the Pats moving to F'bro. Roger wants to make the game international, that would be step 1. 

     

    In any event with or without Trump, moving the Bills north is a very distinct possibility

    [/QUOTE]

    I used to think the Bills would move to Toronto.   It made so much sense.   But then a "poison pill" was added to the renewal of the lease for the stadium in Buffalo.   There is a $400M "fee" involved in breaking that lease and moving out of Erie County, NY anytime before 2020.

    The Bills are staying put.

    I agree...look, RK and the other owners know what Buffalo is, and they know what LA is...by hook or by crook, they are going to get a team into LA, and a $400M poison pill will not be a deterrent, more likely a thank you present from the NFL as they are walking out the door

    Questioning the guys birthplace is racist? What about questioning his school records that were never produced, is that considered racist? From what I've seen questioning anything about Obama is considered racist. Trump I'll agree does some dumb things and I'd never vote for him but IMO he has the right to put in an offer for the team. So did Limbaugh for a minority share of the Rams.

    Phil, I have no interest whatsoever in engaging in a point/counterpoint discussion on the subject.  But I do have two questions in that regard:

    1)  When was there another occasion when an incumbent POTUS country of birth was questioned?

    2)  Would Trump have questioned the country of birth of a POTUS who had red hair and freckles with the name Seamus O'Boyle?

    (I didn't make up the name Seamus O'Boyle.  I served with him in the USN.)

    Agree on the point counter point but why couldnt he just have provided it? Just give it up and say there. I dont know what Trump would have thought about your Navy friend which kind of makes that an unfair question but the birth certificate issue could have been a bigger issue if the press wasnt in O's pocket.

    They questioned Bush's military records, which was proven to be a made up accusation so theres a parallel there.  Back to football my friend, we can agree to disagree.

    You can pick this up when next you sign on.  Seamus (pronounced shay-mus) was a  perfect fit for his Irish heritage and, believe me, he looked the part.  Although I never asked him, I'm guessing family name.

    I am thinking the Bills in LA is already 50% done deal, and it will have the owners blessing, therefore Goodell's as well

    thats one of the prices a state pays for having 3 teams. Out buffalo way is the steelers and the browns. One of them becomes relevant again and the bills will be forgotten   I believe that hoyer stays healthy and manzel doesn't see the fiend this year. Josh Gordon will hurt but the browns have some talent.

    I don't think many realize how close the Pats were to moving out. Twice. Once with Orthwein and again with RK until hem worked out the stadium

    If Kraft hadn't bought the team from Orthwein the Pats to St. Louis was pretty much a done deal.

    I think it's important to understand that the entire Hartford thing was pretty much a ploy for Kraft to get what he wanted in Foxboro.  Anyone familiar with the City (I work there) would tell you that the proposed site was about as impractical a location as one could possibly conceive for an NFL stadium.

    Re: Buffalo Bills Sale

    I think the Bills stay in the Buffalo Toronto Niagara Region, but just over the border in Ontario, Canada. Internationalizing the league has huge PR, Advertising and Political-Economic Value that LA does not possess. LA has gotten along well without a franchise and the league has gotten along well without LA. Adding a team in Canada to the NFL mix expands the global reach of the league that will have far reaching economic implications if this becomes the kickoff of continuing global growth .
