Good timing for Doug. Probably made some noise about not being appreciated and got himself a raise.

Why? What has anyone in the organization done over the past decade to warrant a contract and better yet, an extension?

This is backwards is it not?
I mean the Bills said Buddy was staying on through the draft and than would turn things over to Whaley, correct?
Did i make that up or was that not what Brandon said? So you mean this was the plan with no contract worked out? Kind of strange?

I guess we all missed the part where Whaley has been with this franchise for the past decade.

That was the fans assumption not what he said. Buddy's still fully employed as long as his contract goes as far as we actually know

After all these years of watching and reading about this guy...it's taken a very long time for Doug to get his shot!

Hopefully, he is what we've potentially have heard he will be-- a good GM prospect/turn great GM

I thought we didn't like Whaley anymore. That he was part of the problem.

Sorry, I lose track who we hate on here. There needs to be a chart.

i think we love the players that are cut/let walk and hate all the players that are signed to extentions. bills pro bowlers (alternates) are bums and the players that get snubbed are underapperciated. black is white, up is down and we are only happy when we are miserable. and we always need at least one player, one coach, and one member of management to blame all of our problems on. i am so done with this team...championship!

Ha! I read the text and was very happy that he feels well about the organization to stay with it. But, I come here and see all the negativity which brought me back to earth.
Anyway, count me in as one who is very happy aout this news

I don't understand this idea of giving the GM one last draft?  Houston did the same thing with Casserly.  Now of course it is always a group decision but if NIx is gone after the draft why keep him around.  It is not like Whaley is new to the organization.  He knows the players.  What is the point of letting NIx pick players once more time and then turning those players over to Whaley/Marrone?
Anyways who cares.  We all knew this was coming and Brandon looks like a fool when he keeps saying no stone will go unturned to improve the team.
