    Jeremy Jacobs a suitor to buy the Bills and keep them in Buffalo.

    I dont like the idea of revenue from the bruins going towards unseating the patriots in the division. If Jacobs is serious about buying the bills he should sell the bruins the TD garden and his 20% stake in NESN.

    At this point i think buffalo fans would take any owner as opposed to no team...

    Jacobs would make an excellent candidate.

    He's a native of Buffalo and has major business interests in the city.   The city would embrace him and that would put talks of the Bills leaving to rest for another decade or more.

    There aren't a lot of other candidates that wouldn't be viewed as carpetbaggers.

    What's the conflict of interest?

    Hockey and football are two different sports.

    You know about much about business as you do about sports.

    You really have to ask what the conflict of intrest is? Its a boston sports owner wanting to buy a team that is in the same division as another boston sports team. you really are as dumb as a box of rocks... No wonder rusty pwns you on the regular.

    ^^Classic moron retort.

    Any Bills fan would be cringing at one of the worst owners in sports in the last 30 years coming to supposedly help their franchise along.

    For over 30 years, Jacobs duped Bruins fans.

    You're a moron. Jacob is a greedy businessman and nothing else. Literally NOTHING. He wants to die with as much money as possible and does not care how he is perceived.  

    If that's a great candidate for an owner, you just aren't very bright or wish the worst for the Bills fans.

    I can always tell who has no idea what they're talking about while they pretend they do.

    You kiddies clearly did not grow up with the 1980s and 1990s/early 2000s Bruins. Jacobs led lockouts on two occasions to be able to profit easier, while running to the bank with Bettman.

    Numerous warm weather cities or hack franchies won Cups as Bruins diehards watched in horror.

     



    Naive and ignorant is no way to go through life.

    Jacobs is a major philanthropist in the Buffalo area.   People used to call Bill Gates greedy too before he started his foundation.   Jacobs also employs tens of thousands of people through his companies.  Some folks just like to bash successful businessmen unless their own paycheck is at stake.

    I will agree with you on one point - he didn't do enough to stock the Bruins with top caliber talent for decades.   But you can't make that claim now.

    LOL!

    Those poor bastards.  They just can't catch a break. They're better off with Bon Jovi doing it. At least he'll spend the money and do it the right way.

    I am moritifed as a Bruins fan seeing Jacobs only donate $5000 in the name of Reilly Smith, the Bs latest 7th Player Award winner.

    $5000 to a charity. How generous, Jeremy!  lmao

    What a loser.

    The Bills need someone who gets it, can get some funding to rejuvenate a really depressed city and area, using the new stadium as an economic trigger to help that area.  

    Jacobs is too old and greedy to pull that kind of a thing off. HE also sucks as a human.

    Can't wait for Handy to come in here and attempt to defend this little confilct of interest maneuver from Jacobs.

     



    that's because you're rtarded.

    He would have to sell the Bruins to do this...

     

    Might be a blessing in disguise.

    He wants the concessions for both...and this would NOT be good news for Bruins fans...there would have to be a tamp down on $$ spending because to pay for an NFL franchise means he'll be bleeding cash...not good....only one place where he'll get it from.....

    Give us some examples of this.  Who should he have signed, but didn't because he didn't want to spend the money?

    that will throw a wrench into the crony corpratists in the NFL who want to move them to LA. LOL

    I'd like to see them stay in Buffalo, the fans there have supported their, just a hardidly as the Browns fan did, and deserve to keep their team.

    You want a conflict of interest?

    How about the guy who owns the baseball team in town also owning the biggest newspaper?

    I could make a list for DAYS and DAYS on here every offseason for the last 35 years where Sinden was under orders from Jacobs not only to sign the 3rd or 4th best FA option but unloading really good players for the Bs's in their prime, simply because Jacob wasn't committed to winning.



    Okay.  Give me some examples.

    (Please list Bill Guerin as a player the Bruins wouldn't pay.  Please.)

    I've already bludgeoned you on the Bruins board with this and I am not going to do it again.  You were completely outnumbered there and would be here, too.

    Again, you're the only supposed Bruins diehard I've ever seen defend Jacob$.

    Ever.



    It shouldn't be that hard to give a few examples.  In fact, it would have taken less time to type a few names than it did to type that BS instead.

    Oates:  Signed a 5 year, $10M contract then complained in the media a couple of years later about the direction of the team.  Traded.

    Bourque:  Was traded to win a Cup, not because of money.

    Donato:  20 goal scorer, he was okay.

    Heinze:  20 goal scorer, he was okay.

    Galley for Murphy:  Bad trades happen. 

    Glen Wesley:  Scapegoated out the door for three first round picks!

    Tim Taylor:  I don't recall why they let this guy go.  I can't imagine the third line checker was going to destroy the team's budget.

    Joe Thornton was traded because he was soft, not because of money.  How many Cup rings does he have in San Jose? 

    Kessel/Seguin:  The B's spent to the cap during their time.  Should they have spent more than the cap? 

    Rusty Trombone:  Schooled again on hockey for all the football fans to see.  Sad, really.

    one way or the other the Bills should stay in Buffalo and whoever buys them has to make that priority number one

    btw Russ pay attention to that "sucks as a human" thing you might learn something
