Much isn’t known about the initial bid process regarding the sale of the Buffalo Bills. Donald Trump shared a little information about his offer with Al Michaels of NBC’s Sunday Night Football.
During the broadcast of the Hall of Fame Game between the Bills and Giants, Michaels passed along the details of a conversation with Trump.
“He said he offered $1 billion. All cash, no contingencies, immediate closing. He’d have the check in one hour,” Michaels said of Trump. “He was a little miffed that it went out for bid again.”
The offer, if Trump actually made it and isn’t simply claiming he made it (not that Trump would ever say he’s going to do something and not do it), would still be lower than the amount supposedly put on the table by Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula.
Besides, the process is far from over. Now that the Bills have multiple bidders, they can be leveraged against each other. Which will result in Trump being even more miffed.
Ultimately, the question is whether at least nine of 32 NFL owners are still miffed about Trump’s role in the antitrust lawsuit filed by the USFL against the NFL in the 1980s.
