At a time when a guy with a very recognizable name keeps talking publicly about making a bid to buy the Buffalo Bills, a lesser-known billionaire is talking privately about the prospect. To the people in position to sell him the team.
According to the Associated Press, former Buffalo Sabres owner Thomas Golisano has met with team officials and public leaders, informing them directly of his interest in buying the franchise from the family of the late Ralph Wilson, Jr.
Per the report, Golisano’s plan includes building a new stadium 10 minutes from Ralph Wilson Stadium, where the Bills currently play their home games.
Golisano, 72, reportedly is worth $2 billion. His name first emerged earlier this month as a serious candidate to buy the team. He reportedly spent $93 million of his own money in three separate unsuccessful runs for New York governor as an independent.
