The bottom may have fallen out of the purchase price after tonight's bloodbath.  Maybe that's Bon Jovi's plan...move the team to Toronto and let all the CFL kick our a*s?

You guys heard the latest? It appears Jon Bon is partnering with former Disney stars. Yes that's right Lindsay Lohan, Miley Cyrus, Amanda Bynes, and the Olsen twins. BJ is quite a schemer.

Yep.  By NFL rule and owner is prohibited from owning a franchise in different sport UNLESS its a franchise in a different sport but in the same town.

Even this prohibition can likely be worked around.  For example, Buffalonian Jeremy Jacobs is a gazillionaire who owns the Boston Bruins, but there was talk that if he wanted in on the Bills he might be able to sell his Bruins ownership to a relative or have a relative buy the Bills on paper while he in essence owned the team.

There also was talk of him not owning the team but investing substantially in a new stadium which the Bills would play and practice in essentially giving him free reign to be around the team and be intrinsically linked financially while not being the titled owner of the Bills.

Can the Mods please police the thread?  75 pages of bull **** to comb through while looking for news is ridiculous. And for the asshats who find it amusing, start a thread in OTW where you can "lol" each other.

Tim Graham should be reporting that news this afternoon. In all seriousness, does anyone really know when the "final bids" have to be in?

If Trump doesn't buy the team, can the new owner at least have him come over and fire everyone?
