    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.

    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.

    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.

    He's a moron. I am honestly beginning to think he's Charlie Jacobs. Seriously.  

    Anyone who even hinted at defending Jacobs would have beaten to a pulp where I grew up.  He was the most detested millionaire in Boston (Or Buffalo) for decades.

    He still is in some ways.   He thinks he can get away with it because they finally won a Cup in 2011, but he won't with me. He has decades of abuse in this town and he'd abuse the Bills fans, too.

    Wilson was a great owner, who really was a victim of two things:

    1. An awful market in Buffalo with an economy that hasn't been nice over the past decade.

    2. The Patriots. He's been in the same divison as Kraft/BB and was fighting an uphill battle.

    Buffalo deserves a team, a new stadium and some help, but greedy Jacobs would be a disaster for them and absolutely a conflict of interest competing in differing markets, especially considering Buffalo is in the same division as the Pats.

    Kraft probably does not like it, obviously.

    Jacobs is never, ever to be trusted. He's proven that for decades.

    ^^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.

    How about future HOFer Adam Oates with future HOFer Ray Bourque on his heels awkwardly begging to get the hell out of there at the end of his career?

    Again, we've been over this.  Every millisecond they had someone good, poof, off they go when the contract came due.

    Gord Murphy was better than Garry Galley? Really? Baloney. Galley and Bourque dominated the PP work from the blueline in that era.  Wesley was another one they scapgeoated out the door.

    I don't have the time to go back down every single FA option they could have had from 1976-2004 before Jacob$'$ second lockout came to fruition, but there are numerous examples of their own players on their own team that were messed with for their new contracts, where Sinden traded them off instead.

    Either you know the history of the club, or you don't. It was like it was bad to do good things on the Bruins in those years because it meant those players that did good would be shown the door. Then, Sinden would show up with is drunken self and roascea all over his cheeks on Channel 5 News at 6:00 with Mike Dowling looking flummoxed outsid the Delaware North offices at the Garnde, trying to act like the player wasn't a help to the team after months of negotiating. Sure, Harry.  Go have another drink as you answer "yes" to Jeremy.

    Harry was Jacob$'$ puppet and anyone with half a brain knows that.  My grandmother knew that.

    My grandmother knows more about the Jacobs Bruins than you do. How does that feel?

    Maybe you should have been paying attention to how pathetic all the local overrated players were like Donato or Heinze and how they tried to sell those names as 1st or 2nd line talent instead of you feverishly playing with yourself in Jacob$'s overpriced balcony tickets at $43 a pop in the early 90s, huh, Handy? lmao

    See, you're messing with the wrong person on this topic. You think you know it all and the fact is, I'll out-debate you under the table and back on this stuff. I had family work for Jacobs, we got freebies for years and my folks had season tickets for a long time so I go the dope from them as a kid on Jacobs.  Everyone in the know did.  You were just some tool fanboy who was JAcob$'$ wet dream and you still are. lol

    And, don't even make me start listing the moves in the post lockout era from 1995 and through the early 2000s with moves like Kovalenko or Popovic on D. Pathetic.   

    Tim Taylor was an outstanding face off man and checking Centerman for the '98/'99 club, too, but they refused to pay him when the time came.

    I'd could go on for days and days with this.  

    The coup de grace with Sinden working for Jacobs, too, was the pathetic idea that a finesse Centerman like a Thornton all of a sudden wasn't Bruins material when it came time to pay them, they'd trade them and then get garbage back in return for that chip.

    I also schooled you on that concept too, when I reference how good BB was at that stuff getting ROI.

    Note how that STILL happens today with Jacob$ looming in the background with Kessel and now Seguin.

    Don't draft the player if he doesn't' fit the mold, only to scapegoat the player later.

    The fans in Boston are WAY too intelligent a fan to be duped like that on a regular basis, at least most of us are. That does not include you. You're a dopey fan.

    Jacob$ gets away with it now only because he controls the CBA structure within his preferred budget over the life of the deal, so he gets away with it. But, the weasel hasn't changed his stripes, you can take that to the bank.
