A friend of mine just returned from the Bills - Miami game and showed me this flyer he got, featuring a huge photo of the 2009 Buffalo Bills.

2009 Buffalo Bills

We were joking about how we should cross off all the players that ended up waived or on IR, so I started to comb through the players in the photo and noticed that Dick Jauron wasn't there. That's weird. Don't they take these team photos at the beginning of the year? There's no way they got everyone together AGAIN just because Dick was released. Or would they?

Then we slowly pieced together more and more evidence leading us to believe this photo has been altered:

1. Xavier Oman (#44) is in the photo. He was waived on 11/11. Jauron wasn't fired until 11/17. This photo couldn't have been taken after his firing.

2. Ralph and Brandon seem to be a little off-center. It seems that the logical place for Dick to be standing is right next to Ralph, where the three would be perfectly centered in the photo.

3. Who is in that spot? Jairus Byrd. And he seems larger than normal. In the photo he looks slightly taller than #29 next to him (Drayton Florence). Except Byrd is listed at 5' 10" and Florence is 6' 0". See a zoomed-in photo

4. Take a look at #29's right ear. He seems to have some extra pixel's... either that, or Kawika Mitchell has a seriously weird forearm.

Conclusion: The players were digitally shifted over to cover up Jauron's image.

Not a big deal, but we thought it was amusing. If only we could erase his legacy so easily...  :thumbsup:

Here's the super-high-res version if you want to try to find more evidence.

EDIT - Scanned a better version of the flyer:

Damn, Roscoe is tiny.

And what is on Stevie Johnson's face?  Is that just a blemish on the photo?  It looks like he is hooked up to an oxygen tank.

Haha... well, this is a scanned photo of the original flyer. I think that's just a wrinkle in the paper.

It likely was pieced together, i.e. Photoshopped.  It appears that Ralph's shadowing is different from everyone else, too.
FWIW, Byrd appears to be slightly in front of Florence, which might cause the apparent hgt disparity, as well; it does look like he was pieced in.

How great would it have been if they photoshopped the picture so that Ralph is holding Dick's head and not a football?!  :thumbsup:

They used to do that in Stalinist Russia.  Execute a guy, then retouch every single official photograph he was ever in to make him disappear.  I believe the term for them actually was "unperson".

YO...wtf is that??  I didn't notice it the first time.

It's like when you'd take the arms off an action figure and put them on a different guy.

If only Maybin and our LB's had arms that big, maybe one day he'd get a sack.  One can dream...
