If the Toronto group buys the Bills, will you still support the team?

They plan to come over the Peace Bridge with their bags of cash and take our Bills back to their country. They will lie to us and tell us what we want to hear but they are not to be trusted. As soon as the lease is up then they are outta here. It's a certainty as sure as the sky is blue. Do not fall victim to their deceit.
The face of this evil organization is this man:
He has offended our eardrums for years but we put up with it because our wife liked his CD back in high school. But no more!
I for one do not want to see this nancy-boy in leather tights take our team from us. But the threat is real and the worry on a lot of ours minds is just. This is a very real possibility and things seem to be heating up.
The question I'd like to ask today is: if the Toronto group buys our team, will you still support them?
It has been speculated by some that the league would not approve the Toronto group owning the team due to the threat of playing to empty stadiums for the next 5 years. But I would be curious to see how you, our most devoted fans, would side. Will you support this team in the years to come knowing the inevitable is just around the corner?

The buffalo bills will die the instant the trust decides to sell to them

Today on PFT I read that Marcus Allen described Al Davis' feeling about the Raiders thusly: "There's the Raiders and there's 31 other teams." If the bills move, for me it will be "There's the Bills and there's 32 other teams."
I would still hate the Dolphins though.
But I'd be watching NFL games from afar. Like 30,000 feet. Like when I watch college football, the NCAA tournament, or the World Cup.
I wanna see a good game, but I really, honestly dont care who wins. I want to care, but I just dont. After a while, I will probably lose all interest.

This time I would select a good team.
Knowing me, I would select the broncos.
I grew up playing the game and played it all the way through high school.

+1 The NFL would be dead to me. No fantasy, no other teams, no Super Bowl half time shows, no gambling, nothing. Worst of all, no TBD

My approach would be to see if the new owners agree to sign a long term lease in WNY. If they do, I'd treat them as I've treated the Detroit owner's Bills. If they don't, I'd bail in a heartbeat.

If the Bills are in a playoff hunt, the fans will want to believe what they want to believe and I'm pretty sure the city will go nuts over them, especially at first. If the team stinks, it's going to be impossible to fill those November and December home games. The real issue will be 2-3 years from when they bought it. That's when fans IMO will begin to stay away in droves because the Toronto owners have only paid lip service to building a new stadium.
Then, if the team is bad, it will become an enormous embarrassment to the NFL. The league is obsessed with its image. That is why there is very little chance, IMO, that they even consider the Toronto group. What I truly believe is that behind the scenes they, and everyone else, will be saying the Toronto bid and group is very real. But the purpose will be simply to drive the price up so NFL franchises are all worth 50-200 million more.
That, to me, is the only reason they are telling the Toronto people they have a legitimate chance. And it's going to work. They are going to bid about 1.2b and that is going to make Pegula match it, which I am confident he will. That way, the NFL gets what it wants: Its image intact, and its franchises worth more than ever after a team that is valued at 870m is sold for 1.2b. Each of the owners will make about 100m overnight just for lying.
