Report: Toronto Group 'on life support' in bid for Bills

Jon Bon Jovi and his backers are reassessing their bid to buy the Buffalo Bills, according to a Toronto Sun report.

John Kryk reported that the group cancelled a scheduled tour of Ralph Wilson Stadium on Wednesday and has no plans to reschedule it.

"They're hanging on by the skin of their teeth," one source told the Sun. "The bid's on life support."

Forbes reported Thursday that the Bon Jovi Group bid $820 million, $70 million below Terry Pegula's bid.

Best news I've heard in a long time. The Bills sound like they are solid, and now they sound like they are that much closer to be here to stay! Go Bills! :D

That's horrible!!!
I hope Jon is going to be alright. I was really looked forward to his comeback tour in Buffalo. Hope he can still make the games. I heard he didn't even show up for the tour of the facility. It must be serious.

No surprise there...
With the imminent departure of Tim Leiweke, who's job was pretty much to hasten the Bills' move to Toronto, it has become pretty obvious that Bon Jovi and his "pals" really didn't do their homework on this deal and had no idea that the lease was so ironclad. On top of this, the disorganization is so apparent that it will kill Toronto's future hopes on an NFL team for years to come if ever. Wow, Ralph Wilson's fleecing of Ted Rogers is a gift that keeps on giving...and they say Buffalo never wins!

Sorry I don't believe this report, I really hope Pegula wins but I am a wait to see it when it happens, Go Bills. Too much false information being put out there

Bon Jovi
Bon Jovi, has to stick it out to the end. Even if he knows he does not have a chance of winning. If he doesn't he will never have a chance to bid on a NFL team again.

Drivel radio at its finest. Can't get any worse than that. The Bills and Sabres should just pull the plug on this outfit.

Having read your Sabres' comments over the past two years and then reading this...you really aren't too bright are you? Try learning at least rudimentary grammer and THEN post. Thank you.

Toronto is still in play
People in Buffalo are attacking Bon Jovi and Toronto and there issue is quite clear for moving the Bills to Toronto, who is going to pay for a new stadium because it won't be the tax players. I wouldn't want to see the Bills leave Buffalo but Bon Jovi and his pals can outbid everyone else and since the Bills have rejected all bills and the parties are asked to resubmit the team is available to anyone that wants it. Bon Jovi can get the Bills but I really wonder how the economics (cost of tickets, food and parking) would work to pay for the Bills and a stadium (which will be have to be a retractable dome because people in Toronto are posers and afraid of sitting in cold weather after paying $600 for end zone tickets.
