Didn't see this mentioned at all yet and I thought it was interesting. The trailer for the draft day movie that was originally supposed to be about the bills and filmed in buffalo is out. Kevin Costner plays the gm of the browns and at the 16 second mark in the trailer he is on the phone with someone talking about the draft and he says every year someone comes out of this looking like a donkey and they cut to an aerial shot of The Ralph. Hollywood taking a shot at the Buffalo Bills? I am outraged. Last years draft was one of this teams best in quite some time. Hollywood will suck it come next season

All bitterness aside, it looks like a really good movie and I'm damn excited to see it. One of the better football movies in history (it could shape up to be).

With how good the movie looks, its saddening how the movie was almost about the Bills.

Agreed, I may be wrong but it looks bad. I'll watch it, simply because it's about football. I hope surprised.

I think it pans to Buffalo because they're on the phone with the Bills. Your inferiority complex is showing.

Can't wait to see this, but it sucks that it wasn't about our team.

It's really annoying how easily people get offended these days

The aerial shot of the Ralph is actually before he says or starts to say one team comes out looking like a Donkey not after.

I don't plan to see this.   Bull Durham and Field of Dreams were great, but Kevin Costner hasn't done much to impress since.

It looks like a ripoff of Moneyball with a lesser cast.

The tax incentives in Ohio for film production, where better then those in Upstate New York.

Tin Cup was great. For Love of the Game was another baseball movie he did that was pretty good. Open Range was really good and Mr Brooks was ok even though it was basically Dexter

Maybe Dexter was inspired by Mr. Brooks  :ph34r:

Well considering Dexter started in 2006 and Mr Brooks was 2007 I'd say no

But at this point most things are based off of something these days. Christian Bale played a similar role in American Psycho in 2000 which was a very underrated movie

Back to the draft day movie I'm sure I'll watch it bc I'm a draft geek but I'm not expecting it to be great. The Ralph looks pretty good from above though

On one hand, there's being offended by stuff like this....
On the other? Mark Sanchez. Tony Romo.

We can talk all we want about inferiority complexes, or, we can recognize, and discuss, the obvious bias that inundates the media when it comes to big market teams. I've watched the Bills/Miami game 3 times now(been making perogies all afternoon). It's hilarious watching the announcers play save ass for the rest of the game, after all of the schit they talked in the first quarter.

The movie is going to suck, and very likely bomb. We should all be happy it's not about the Bills.

Is your signature really necessary on a football website?  It's more than a little ironic that you urge people to be patient about Manuel but have already arrived at a conclusion regarding the AHCA.  Both were situations that needed fixing and in both instances, the powers that be did their best to address a glaring shortcoming.  Let's be patient about both.  If the Bills' official website had an issue after the Bills selected Manuel I wouldn't think any differently about how Manuel might perform on the field.

Some teams get more attention, especially the NFC East, but they also get slammed more when things go bad.

The Bills will get respect when they start winning.
