Did you see where Donald Trump is talking about purchasing the Buffalo Bills, and keeping them in Buffalo?
At first blush, this is a great idea for a Bills fan. A billionaire comes in and promises to keep the team in Western New York. It would likely have a new stadium attached to any deal. He certainly has the ability to convince players to play for them. Trump is also capable of keeping the heat off the team by coming up with outrageous statements.
Then again, there’s some reasons why the guy should never get a football team.
Then he’s talking about running for President. Of the United States. The last thing most NFL owners want is off-the-field publicity from stupid stuff.
The guy also has casino interests which might really impede him becoming the owner. The NFL definitely has a problem with owners having interest in firms controlling a sports book.
No one else really knows if Trump is truly interested in the Bills, or just seeking some publicity for himself. If he did attempt to buy that team, it certainly would make things interesting up there, that’s for sure.
