No state tax, nicer weather. Why is that hard to believe?

Obviously the rest of the league has not heard about our awesome new locker rooms.

Green Bay made that list with 6% of the votes?  That almost has to be all weather and location, right?

The Bills belong there.  Between the area, the weather, and sucking badly for the past decade and a half I'm mildly surprised the Bills didn't beat out the Raiders for top honors.

Seems that way. So there will always be a group of young men who don't want to be in WNY no matter what, but it's pretty obvious that organizational quality is a factor for other teams on the list.

Green Bay is on that list with 6% of the votes.  No doubt it lowers if the team is a winner, but not likely to go away completely.

I wonder if they asked the players who actually play in Buffalo.

Then why is Green Bay the 4th least desired place?

"Fans" booing at a preseason game . . . .

"Fans" cheering when one of their players gets hurt . . . .

We should not aspire to be Philly fans.

This could change when new ownership takes over, as winning cures everything.

It does not, or Green Bay would not be on the list.
