AP: At least 3 groups set to bid on the Bills



John Warrow of the Associated Press is reporting that at least three groups have entered the final stage of negotiations to buy the Buffalo Bills.

Those three groups are: Terry and Kim Pegula, the Toronto Group and Donald Trump.

Three people close to discussions told The Associated Press that Trump and the Toronto Group have received formal documents in advance of a deadline for bids to be submitted by Monday.

Two other people familiar with the process told the AP former Sabres owner Tom Golisano is not prepared to submit a bid.

shocking news

Final bids
Do we know if each bidder has, at some point, knowledge of the other bidder's bids? In other words, would Pegula have opportunity to counter offer if Bon Jovi's group submit a higher bid? We still don't know if there is anything in the trust that says the team goes to the highest bidder period, though we did hear that Morgan Stanley went back to toronto group to get more of a commitment to buffalo. confusing? Can anyone clarify???

Wow
So many stores it changes every day I'm so sick of it let me know when it's finish.

lets go terry and kim .
It will be a blessing for those two win ownership. They have put their word on this team and you just can't get no better than that. I mean even if they gave the team to trump. At lease we have his word that they will stay here in buffalo. Tom golisano will not bid on the bills unless he see the bills try and fall to the broken star jovi. I think he will team up with terry and kim if that happens. So jovi stop flying around like a nasty fly. That just in the hell wont go away. lets go buffalo

Unexpected competition
I'm only worried about a bid from an entity "waiting in the weeds" who hasn't been talked about yet. Like the Gillette family. I hope there are only the 3 groups that have already been talked about.

Don't count on Pegula winning until the process is over. The trust must abide by the rules Wilson put in place.

Lets go terry and kim.
They will be the right fit for the bills. Jovi needs to quick flying around the bills like a nasty fly; that just wont go away. Jovi just stick with your 1820 years old songs and get a life for lol.

If Ralph Wilson were a racist instead of dead, would this deal be done already?

3.... count them...3 bidders for an NFL Franchise???? HOLY doo-doo!!!!!!!!

"Set to bid" ? I thought they've already taken the bids!
Why is everything associated with Buffalo sports always such a confused mess?

Can you imagine Trump being involved in a super bowl winner?...YES Now,can you imagine Pegula?... N
Pegula mediocrity, Trump = success. Pegula has shown a complete lack of understanding of the team and sport he's already gotten his hands on. His only strong suit is he has money. I'll give Trump a try any day over Pegula.

heres the deal
if the Toronto group gets the bills then get out now! forget about putting the Toronto team on our local television it would be like cleveland putting baltimore games on local TV. oh and you people from canada forget about coming across the border to shop. canadians not wanted!!!!!

Boycott Canada
If Canada gets the Bills all of WNY should stay away from going to Canada for anything. Let it hit them where it hurts the most. Buffalo supports the Bills and they are an original AFC team with a rich history. There's no reason for them to move, if they move they are stolen from Buffalo. The league needs to end their hate of Buffalo and stop their drum beat of moving this team. The league can give Toronto an expansion team if they want a team in Toronto, this is more about them wanting to move the team out of Buffalo due to their perception being a small market when it has a big metropolitan area.

Get out of your shell
Although crossing sports, a major market basketball team only went for $2billion. How many (forced) bids? A southern hockey team (burgeoning market) was run by the league for how long before new ownership? So a 'small' market football team withnational appeal goes for over $1billion by 3 bidders and people complain. Some cities only get a team by midnight train. Good thing were not in Cleveland.

Owner
Something tells me that Trump wont accept failure. With Pegula, I dunno, I think it would be more of the same old, same old. Like the Sabres. We need someone who has the guts to fire people -and bring in new mangement @ OBD.

Just a thought...
Instead of worrying constantly about Toronto "stealing" the Bills, why don't we just relax and let the City of Buffalo "win" with Pegula and keep the momentum going in the rebuilding that is happening? Keep putting people into condos and apartments in and around downtown and pretty soon we simply won'thave to worry at all because the City will be strong enough economically to stand up without anyone's help. It's happening now, enjoy it. The Bills are STAYING!

AT LEAST THREE GROUPS!!!! WOW!!
Hey everyone there's "AT LEAST 3 GROUPS"!!! And at the "MOST" 15, 20, 30??????????????????????? DUMBAZZ MEDIA... LETS GO PABST!!!!
