Despite the bluster, the bravado, and the convenient revisions to the history of his antagonism of the NFL, billionaire Donald Trump would have a good chance of being approved as owner of the Bills, if the family of Ralph Wilson decides to sell the team to him.
“I don’t see why not,” a source with direct knowledge of the dynamics of team ownership told PFT on Tuesday. “He’s the only one saying it will stay in Buffalo.”
But what of Trump’s thirst for attention, his potential inability to put the greater good above his own interests, his tendency to be belligerent and combative with real or imagined enemies?
“I don’t think there are nine people to stop him,” the source said, in reference to the fact that nine “no” votes from other owners can block the sale.
Of course, a vote of the owners won’t matter unless the Wilson family chooses to sell the team to Trump. It’s one thing for Trump to talk publicly about buying the franchise. It’s quite another to put the cash and financing together to make the purchase.
