20,000 tickets remain for Bills’ home finale

Some folks in Buffalo would point gleefully to the inability of Toronto to sell tickets to Bills games.  Some folks in Toronto would point gleefully to the inability of Buffalo to sell tickets to Bills game.

Some folks in L.A. would point gleefully to both.

In the wake of the worst Toronto turnout for a regular-season Bills game, CEO Russ Brandon said during his weekly appearance on WGR radio that more than 20,000 tickets remain for the team’s next and final home game of the season.

Brandon added that, of seven home games played this season in Buffalo, only two have been true sell outs, via Mike Rodak of ESPN.com.

The remarks come a week after Brandon bristled at reports/rumors that Jon Bon Jovi wants to buy the team.  Brandon insisted that the team isn’t for sale.  But it will be for sale after 95-year-old owner Ralph Wilson’s tenure ends.

The question that looms over the future of the franchise is whether the Wilson family would sell the team to local interests who value the club based on its revenue potential in Western New York — or whether the Wilson family would accept a presumably higher offer from those who would move the team to a place where it could make more money, by consistently selling more tickets.

By playing one game per year in Toronto, Wilson hoped to create a regional footprint, which would make the team more valuable and viable in Buffalo.  If the Canadian experiment ultimately fails (and Brandon said the arrangement will be reviewed in the offseason), the next question becomes whether less cash would be accepted in order to keep the team in a place where, over the long haul, less cash will be generated.

And while the team’s new lease contains a $400 million buyout during each of the first seven years, the lease can be canceled after the 2019 season for payment of only $28 million.Which means that the next owner could escape for Los Angeles or London or anywhere else in only six years.

    With the first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Toronto Bills select…

    It’s common knowledge among league circles that a deal is already in place to sell the Bills to Toronto upon Ralph Wilson’s death.

  2. bleedgreen says: Dec 4, 2013 9:35 AM

    No one wants to pay hundreds of dollars to see terrible teams. Its that simple. A fanbase can deal with 1 or 2 years of ‘rebuilding’, but the Bill have not been good in almost 20 years. That wears on a fanbase, especially one with a languishing economy in the first place.

  3. sbchampsagain says: Dec 4, 2013 9:35 AM

    I like the North American Bills.

    Let them travel to cities to audition for the NFL.

    Mexico City Bills one week, Los Angeles Bills the next. Then the Toronto Bills.

    Maybe they could eventually even get a team in DC!

    Welcome to LA – where you will not be short 20,000 tickets to just the finale, it will be 20,000 short to every home game.

  6. elemeno89 says: Dec 4, 2013 9:40 AM

    I’m positive that if we had won three of the games played against Cleveland, KC, New England, Pittsburgh, and Atalanta that game would be a sell out. You can’t expect a sellout of a December game in Buffalo if the team is not going anywhere past week 16.

    There’s always next year…

    It’s funny you always bring up how the Bills are going to move and yet they never will. You have teams in California that barely sell out as it is and the LA experiment already failed. Get something else to talk about or move the crappy Chargers to LA where maybe ticket sales increase by 5%.

  14. buffr1 says: Dec 4, 2013 9:49 AM

    I’m a Buffalo Bills fan who attends 3-4 games a year, and I guarantee you that if the Bills would show even slight hope for a playoff birth in December these late season home games would be sold out and people would be fighting get their hands on tickets.

    The Bills receive significant support in Buffalo year round even after 15 years of mediocrity. If you take the past 15 years and put that to any other city or team I doubt you would see close to the support Buffalo still shows its team.

    All this talk about Seattle’s 12th man, where were they 5 years ago? Success creates excitement and articles like this are ridiculous.

    Fans are SICK of losing, being embarrassed, Russ Brandon wants more sell outs, FIELD a winner, SIMPLE. This area supports their Teams, Bills and Sabres for years and have gotten nothing in return, how do they look in the mirror?

  18. fanofevilempire says: Dec 4, 2013 9:52 AM

    if the Bills leave NY then the Jets will be the worst football team in NY/NJ.

  19. usher716 says: Dec 4, 2013 9:53 AM

    Buffalo has one of the smallest markets and largest stadiums. If 11,500 people didn’t show up to a Bills game, that would be more fans in attendance than Lucas Oil Stadium, Heinz Field, Soldier Field and the Oakland Coliseum AT FULL CAPACITY. The 10 year lease breaks down as follows: $400 million dollar payment for leaving before 2020, $28 million after 2020 (for final 3 years of the lease). Maybe if the Bills didn’t put themselves at a competitive disadvantage by selling a late season home game they could have won that game, still be in playoff contention and not be facing late december blackout. Toronto is a (great) city who arguably does not care about the Bills -only 38000 showed up and usually you hear just as many cheers for the opponent. I think they would much rather have their own team. Regardless, if you are a winning franchise you don’t have these issues be it in Buffalo or Toronto, and the Bills have been far from that for a long time. Until the Bills value winning over a few extra bucks this will not change.

  20. bygd1 says: Dec 4, 2013 9:58 AM

    Jets are already worst team in NJ

  21. dontouchmyjunk says: Dec 4, 2013 10:18 AM

    Now you’re finally on to something, Florio. When old man Wilson dies there is a good chance that AEG will buy a considerable interest in the Bills. Then… FINALLY, shovel will move gravel. But not one day before a team is purchased. The Rams are another option. Doesn’t have to be a majority, but it must be significantly close to majority. Otherwise, profit isn’t possible.

    That’s why the Raiders will never move here. The Chargers might be a possible purchase.

    You must look for the sale before you can speculate who’s moving here to LALA land. It’s economic reality. You can’t rent a 1.5 (now a 1.8) billion dollar stadium and make money. Use yer noggin’.

  22. kgun87 says: Dec 4, 2013 10:19 AM

  24. newjerseygiants says: Dec 4, 2013 10:37 AM

    They should move to Newark NJ. We can do three teams here within 10 miles of each other, no problem. Plus Tony Soprano and crew is always looking for construction contracts to build overpriced stadiums. The Newark Bills! With their $3 billion dollar stadium right on the banks of the Passaic River. Sounds good to me.

    It’s all in the stability at QB. If the Bills had drafted Tom Brady with their 6th pick in 2000, we’d be reading a different story right now.

  26. deljzc says: Dec 4, 2013 10:43 AM

    The NFL keeps looking for other reasons but the true reason has and always will be price.

    The NFL has priced themselves out of people wanting to go. Why pay $25 for parking, $75-$100 a ticket, and $7-8 for cheap, lousy keg beer to sit in the cold and watch a bad team?

    You want to sell those 20,000 seats? Offer half price everything (tickets, parking, concessions) and watch how fast they sell.

    The price point to go to a game is ludicrous compared to other forms of entertainment (which includes watching the game at home).

  27. Gdelarocks says: Dec 4, 2013 10:53 AM

    or whether the Wilson family would accept a presumably higher offer from those who would move the team to a place where it could make more money, by consistently selling more tickets.

    …………..
    If they were to move, and then went on another 14 year playoffless streak and 9 year streak without a winning record, they wouldnt consistently sell more tickets wherever they moved to either.

    It’s not the location. Greeen Bay has a waiting list. Why? Because they are ALWAYS in the playoffs, or at least the post season hunt. Make all the excuses you want about cold, location, economy etc. The simple undeniable truth is that it comes down to one thing: wins. The Bills start winning in the next couple of years, and they arent going anywhere.

  28. richc111 says: Dec 4, 2013 10:56 AM

    I like the way Brandon through the Bills fans under the bus to defend the Toronto games. You know where is interest lies. Not in the performance of the team but the sucess for his baby.

  29. norton20 says: Dec 4, 2013 10:58 AM

    14 years without being in the playoffs and Brandon is worried about his problems selling tickets? C’mon Russ it isnt that complicated. Your team stinks, year after year after year. They’ve rarely even been in the hunt for a playoff berth in that time.

    They are the only team in the league that plays 9 road games all so the franchise can make a few extra bucks. Talk about a competitive disadvantage! Geez Russ, if you had played the Falcons at home you likely win that game, are in the playoff hunt and you sell the 20,000 seats to the Dolphin game. It’s not like the value of the franchise hasn’t skyrocketed annually. I think the sale of the team when Ralph Wilson passes will show how much value has been added.

  30. richc111 says: Dec 4, 2013 10:59 AM

    Oh again, I am sick of hearing how LA and them getting a football team. They had football teams and lost them. I have said it before I feel sorry for any current NFL team that loses a team the LA. They don’t deserve a team. If Buffalo loses its team or any other city for that matter, are they going to get a team back? NO!

  33. jpaq68 says: Dec 4, 2013 11:10 AM

    The good thing for Bills fans: Old Man Wilson sold his soul to the Devil to ensure that he will never die no matter how old he gets and thus, the Bills will never leave Buffalo.

    The bad thing for Bills fans: Old Man Wilson failed to read the fine print on that contract that stated he will never live to see the Bills win a Superbowl.

  34. granadafan says: Dec 4, 2013 11:18 AM

    Crappy team, exhorbitant ticket prices, freezing cold, high prices for beer, food, parking. The NFL’s response is to PREVENT fans from watching the local team. Ridiculous.

  35. jordan468 says: Dec 4, 2013 11:20 AM

    As a Canadian I who has lived in the Toronto area, I can tell you that the lack of attendance at the Bills-Toronto series, has nothing to do with a lack of interest but rather with the quality of the product and prices.

    The Bills have hosted six games in Toronto since 2008:
    Buffalo (6-7 record going into the game) – Miami(8-5)
    Buffalo (4-8) NYJ (6-6)
    Buffalo (0-8) Chicago (5-3)
    Buffalo (5-2) Washington (3-4)
    Buffalo (5-9) Seattle (9-5)
    Buffalo (4-7) Atlanta (2-9)

    The Bills-Toronto series have never brought in a competitive matchup or a high caliber team (with the exception of Seattle in 2012)

    Furthermore, ticket prices are substantially more expensive in Toronto compared to Buffalo. I’m not sure what ticket prices are now, but when the series started, tickets averaged $180 per seat compared to $50 per seat in Buffalo.

    The lack of quality in matchups, combined with high ticket prices, makes the Bills-Toronto series a recipe for disaster especially when fans can drive from Toronto to Buffalo in less than two hours and pay a third of the price to see a terrible team.

  36. mega1480 says: Dec 4, 2013 11:30 AM

    Why not put a tarp on it like other teams do so we can have a “sell out”, please try to contain your enthusiasm for others problems Florio, the Schadenfreude does not reflect well on you. The Miami game in Florida was a sell out, look at photos of that game, pathetic attendance, at least 50,000 will actually show up to the Bills game.

  37. goodellisruiningtheleague says: Dec 4, 2013 11:44 AM

    Too bad there aren’t more opposing team fans around Buffalo. Washington has sell outs because the stadium is made up of 90% opposing fans to cheer for the team playing against the Redskins.

    Yeah, thats what I’m saying dude. What is your point? You have none.

    Since the 90s they have been playoff contenders for years. In the 80s and 70s they struggled but not nearly as bad as the Bills have struggled. Didnt go as long without playoff appearances and winning seasons. The Bills also always sold out prior to about 5 years ago when the streak began to reach pathetic proportions.

    Hence, like I said, when teams win they sell tickets. Get it now?

  41. melikefootball says: Dec 4, 2013 12:17 PM

    Doesn’t surprise most fans the product on the field in the NFL doesn’t match the cost of going to a game. The biggest things fans watch today is what player does what for the fantasy football. The other thing to watch plays and say will that be fined. The NFL is tacking steps backwards under the leadership today.

  42. Gdelarocks says: Dec 4, 2013 12:23 PM

    @JoeToronto, when did I ever say the Packers didnt sell out? I said they always do because they are quite more often in playoff contention than the Bills are.

    Since 1960 when both the Pack and Bills simultaneously have existed, the Packers clearly have a better, more successful history than the Bills. Even during their darkest times, their chances of recovery and duration of time spent in the darkness does not compare to the muck Buffalo currently finds itself it.

    Therefore, that is why i said, despite location the Pack always sells out. The Bills selling out never became an issue until 4 or 5 years ago when the muck they are in bottomoed out yet again with no hope in sight. Point being, wins sell tickets, and this rutt is the most pathetic in NFL history. Hence, wins will get their ticket sales up. It’s pretty simple, really. Try and follow along.

    I’m a Jets fan who went to school in Buffalo.

    This is not a reflection of the fanbase. Theyre good fans, especially considering how big a joke the front office has turned the organization into the last decade plus.

    The last home game is still 2.5 weeks away, lots of time to sell tickets. But even if it doesnt sell out, should anyone be surprised? 3 days before Christmas, a meaningless late December game for the 14th year in a row, the 9th straight season without a winning record, and its going to be freezing out. Give this post all the thumbs down you want- but apply those variables I just mentioned to any NFL team and theyre going to have struggles selling tickets.

    The Bills start winning they will have no problems selling tickets, period.

    @joetoronto

    Youre still missing the point. I’m saying what youre saying: that the weather and economy have nothing to do with it. I’m not disagreeing that the Packers had bad years.

    Since 1960 when both GB and Buff existed: GB’s longest losing season streak: 5. Buffalo: currently 9. GB longest playoff drought: 10. Buffalo: currently 14.

    It’s been only the last 4 years that the Bills have struggled to sell out. In other words the Bills started losing ticket sales at 5 years of losing seasons and 10 years w/o a playoff appearance. Through simple mathematics one can recognize that is the same time the PAckers turned their darkest of streaks around, and have not had worse streaks since.

    Conclusion: The Bills have gotten bad to a point beyond almost any other team has ever gotten to, therefore, ticket sales have decreased. It really isnt rocket science.

    1) There is amazing food that is not fast food here, native to this area. This is not a chain town.
    2) There is waterfront, a cleaner and safer version of Atlantic City 20 minutes away in Niagara Falls, ON.
    3) Buffalo has a metro area of about 1.5 million people. Its completely contradictory to call a city that large in the middle of nowhere- the citty itself is something, so how is it in the middle of nowhere? Utterly nonsensical.
    4) The “Buffalo sucks” card is overplayed. Jim Kelly said the same thing when he was drafted, 30 years later, hes still here raising his family here.
    5) In the summertime neither the Bills nor Sabres are playing, yet, I am never bored and have plenty of things to do. How can that be, since according to you, the Bills are all we have to do ?!?!

    Ignorance and misinformation at its finest here.

    THe Bills made 4 straight AFL playoffs in the 60s in the OJ Simpson era, and from 88-99, the Kelly/Flutie era, only missed the playoffs 2 times in 12 years.

    Aside from those 13 appearances, there are only 3 other total appearances. Buffalo only made the playoffs 3 times between 1966 and 1988 and now havent made it 14 years in a row.

    All in all were talking 54 years of franchise with 38 of them being spent pathetically. Not to mention being the only fans to have to endure the heartbreak of not 1, not 2 but FOUR coneseutive superbowl losses. With that track record, selling out any games is the very anthesisis of front runners.

He has really put this team at a competitive disadvantage with the regionalization of this franchise. The Toronto series is a joke. I bet not one if the other 31 NFL teams would put their team in a similar situation. No wonder they can’t get a premium coaching candidate to even consider an offer to coach the Bills.

    I feel that if this organization spent money on marketing the team intelligently through out the region rather than the Toronto series and rather than pumping milions of dollars into Russ’s alma mater, St. John Fisher College, the Bills would be in a much better position today and we wouldn’t be reading anything about potential blackouts.

    The bottom line is when Ralph does pass through those yellow uprights in the sky and this team is purchased by Jeffrey Gundlach or Tom Golisano, Russ Brandon is going to be out of a job.

    Then, finally, the Buffalo Bills will start to put a winning team on the field and fans in the seats of Rich Stadium.

    The Bills were awesome with Thurmon Thomas, Bruce Smith, and of course Jim Kelly. That was a life time ago. Playing against a Jim Kelly led Buffalo team meant you were in a dog fight to the end. That was good team.

    20,000 short? That’s still just about 60,000 sold. Not that bad.

    If you’re looking for a good city for this team, how about Hahira, Georgia?

    Lets point out the fact theres more stadiums can’t sell out, so its either 1) nfl needs to lower prices 2) goodell made it a sissy league or b) economy is bad everywhere

    I say all 3
