Bad news, Bills fans. Jon Bovi’s bid for the team, which appeared to be close to imploding last week, remains viable.
According to John Kryk of the Toronto Sun, Bon Jovi’s Toronto-based group has made it to the final round of the sale process. The group will meet with the folks responsible for selling the Bills on Tuesday in Manhattan.
The development comes after the group’s initial bid was rejected and a second bid generated additional requests for clarification, specifically regarding its commitment to keeping the team in Buffalo.
While that clarification apparently was good enough to persuade the trust responsible for selling the franchise to proceed, Bills fans surely remain skeptical, preferring a buyer like Terry Pegula, who already owns the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres.
