With the initial Bid due date past, it appears the Pegula's, JBJ & Co. and the Donald are front runners. Our previous thread is at 54 pages and running, so this one will pick up from today and go forward.

Hoping our new owner is announced at the October Owners mtg.

I realize the "official" release of who the new owner will have to wait, but couldn't the Wilson estate announce whose bid they have accepted and forwarded to the NFL?? That, would help immensely in relieving some of the pressure to find out the fate of the BILLS. In that, if in fact it were Pegula, I would rest easier knowing the first major hurdle was overcome and the last was to be approved by the NFL...if I / we have to wait until October to find out both of those facts, it's going to be a long couple of months and much, much, much more conjecture...which, I'm already sick of...ughh!

I really don't understand how JBJ can even be in the bid process considering his group is out of Toronto and they have been open about looking at Toronto sites. I thought the lease stated anyone looking to relocate would not be accepted.

I'm sure this was talked about in the other thread but I'll be damned if I'm gonna sift through 54 pages to find the answer.

This was supposedly done by Rogers when looking at a solo bid.  It in no way reflects JBJ's official position on relocation.  Although I'm sure we can all guess what it is.

Maybe you could add to the subject "Jury is out Day 1" and update the number every day

Just thought of something and maybe its nothing but even if the JBJ group won the bid, they would still have to pay the $400M to move the team. Or if they waited for the buyout, they would still have to pay a relocation fee and anywhere between $800M-$1.5B for a new statium.

They wouldnt be able to afford all of that would they if they got the team for say $1.5B?

they would not pay the relocation fee, they would wait out the lease.  between Rogers and Tannenbaum they are pretty wealthy.  JBJ is the one holding them back imo.  also, Rogers has the money but he has to get the ok from his family to use it.  it just sounds like a big mess and 1 guy with cash like Pegula should be the obvious favorite

I bet it will leak.  I am certain it will.  
Look at it this way:  Since Mr Wilson's passing, we are well more than halfway to those owner's meetings.

I get the feeling it will be leaked when they pick the winner.  We found out both bids within 24 hours when it was non disclosed.

Make no mistake - the "leaks" we are hearing are well placed...It vets out the riff raff and news maker bids.  As I understand, they have leaked out that Pegula's bid is a QTR Billion more than the JBJ Group.  Unless they are willing to step up, this is basically over other than the ownership vote...
