A day after the Buffalo Bills officially commenced the process of selling the team, one of the most prominent suitors reportedly had a lengthy lunch with the man who steers the NFL’s ship.
According to Ian Mohr and Stephanie Smith of the New York Post, Jon Bon Jovi and Commissioner Roger Goodell spent two hours at lunch on Thursday.
“They were definitely talking business,” an unnamed source told the Post. “Jon was taking notes — he had a pen and paper with him at the table.”
Bills fans undoubtedly hope that the notes Bon Jovi took included advice from Goodell that, if Bon Jovi’s group intends to move the Bills to Toronto, he should give up now.
While there may be potential buyers who’d try to move the franchise to L.A., Bills fans bristle at the possibility of any relocation, even a fairly close move to Toronto. Several expected bidders would keep the team in Buffalo. Ultimately, the question is whether those bid will be better than the bids made by those who would want to move the team.
