Report: Rogers will not make bid on Bills

A report from the Toronto Sun Tuesday morning, has indicated that Edward Rogers III will not make a bid on the Buffalo Bills.
"Even though the Rogers family fortune was estimated last fall by Canadian Business magazine to be $7.6 billion, two sources said Rogers himself was not in a position to be a sole bidder for the NFL club," John Kryk reported.
Even though Rogers won't be heading the Toronto group to bid for the Bills, it is unclear whether Rogers will end up becoming a minority investor under Jon Bon Jovi and Larry Tanenbaum.

However, the Toronto Sun reports that "the groups once unwavering intention apparently has changed in recent weeks," when it comes to relocating the Bills to Toronto.
"The Bills aren't leaving western New York this decade, and probably a lot longer that that. Even to Toronto."

There is nothing like...
hearing Howard and the other clowns continually speculate on the Bills future like anxious school boys. One would think being the only sports station in town that these guys would have some inside information. Howard is too busy taking naps afterwork and Jeremy is too busy bar hoping with his hipster friends. It would be nice to have some real journalists in town...

Hmmm, "unwavering intention...changed..." Meeting with Goodell...
I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that Mr. Jovi's meeting went something like this: "We're going to put a bid in and then move the team." Goodell: "Love the chicken here. The NFL won't let you move the team, Pegula's bid will win; find something else to do with your time." That sound more likely to me than anything else I've heard in the past few months.

Pegula scaring them off ?
When Pegula liquidated his some of his assests to cash and said they are interested in keeping the Bills in Buffalo, other potential owners took notice. I believe Pegula would be willing to overpay for the Bills like he did with the Sabres. Why else would Pegula need $1.75 bil. in cash suddenly ? I believe he was setting the stakes to sit at the Bills bidding table.

Toronto Money
I have one question. If Bon Jovi plans on keeping the Bills in Western New York, who will finance him? Lets be honest, he needs investors. I really do not think anyone from Toronto will loan him that type of money with the intent to keep the Bills in WNY. That means he would need a investor state state. Who is willing to give Bon Jovi a Billion Dollars? Lets face facts you need CASH and the only person who has that type of Cash on hand is Pegula. If Bon Jovi comes up with a Billion, Pegula will bid 1.1Billion and I don't think Bon Jovi will come up with another 200million. The team will go to Terry and Kim Pegula and unless Bill Gates wants to join his cofounders and own a professional sports team.

When he is not plagiarizing stories form the News to print in his own column, he is making them up. Don't believe this story for a minute.

Wow, you all know so much about the liquid assets, which you all call cash, of billionaires
All this nonsense speculation, none of you have a clue what the assets or financials of any of these people are. And, Pegula is weak, good luck with him owning all of Buffalo's teams. Losers forever.
