I saw where the Bills might leave Buffalo, when their lease runs out in 2022.
Reportedly, there’s pessimism that the team will stay.
Teams in the NFL aren’t even vulnerable to moves due to lack of people in the immediate city … they become community teams. Green Bay is not very large, not in a great location but they’ve managed to fill their stadium. Cincinnati isn’t even in the top 50 as far as population goes.
When you talk about corporate support, Buffalo has no Fortune 500 companies. But if that kind of corporate support is meaningful, Richmond should have an NFL team. So should San Antonio, and Englewood CO.
There has to be wiggle room there. An NFL owner can leave a team in Buffalo. NFL teams make money no matter what.
Here’s BSP’s call: The Bills belong in Buffalo. If they can’t stay there, Toronto is as far as they go.
