Glad to hear that the Bill's fans were so respectful and loving about Ralph Wilson....I think they have too good of a fan base, to really leave....Jacksonville really does'nt sell enough tickets and Oakland is a dump....they have to be the favorites to go to LA, and don't forget that as greedy as the NFL is.....they aren't beyond picking up some change, on a couple expansion teams, and they are dying to put a team overseas.....Talking about the hoops tourney, have you seen the 7 footer from Wisconsin that also shoots threes?....kinda tough to defend, like Dirk Nowitski....They are the last hope for the Big 10....lol....Hell, it could end up, all-SEC.....Kentucky-Florida.. ..Michigan State going down, wiped out all the ESPN guy's brackets.....

There is a counter-cultural newspaper here and sometimes they are better than the Buffalo News...I read their paper today and according to themThe Bills may not beat the Raiders or Jags to LA based upon the fact there is a trust running the franchise.... first It would take a year or two for a deal to be worked out.. If the trust did move the team it would cost them, if they understand the teams of the trust,$30M per year till 2020...You would be de-valuing the $875 m (est.) asset by $150m...That would be a cost you would perfer the buyer eat particularly in light of the large tax bil you owe and more than 2\3 of that comes fom inheriting the team, A cost you pass on to a buyer.
Don't rule out an NFL expansion...Putting a couple teams in Canada makes sense, You will develope more NFL grade college grads if Canadian kids if they are schooled in the NFL game...And expanding the TV contract to Canada could make $$$
It is official..no one anywhere has an intact NCAA bracket...Warren Buffett put up $1.B and no one could take it...Buffett says he is disappointed...If it makes you feel better Warren..just give to me...I'll be ok with that

I would'nt write off London in that expansion scenario....They haven't been playing 1-2 games at Wembley for nothing....Goodell may have a larger appetite for world domination, than you give him credit for....lol....Sounds like the Bills aren't going anywhere.....Warren Buffet has great publicity representation....there isn't a chance in hell, that anyone could have a complete bracket...his billion is safe....Canadian kids are in alot of the NCAA programs.....Michigan's shooter Nick Stauskas is outta Canada....I've only been to British Columbia, but we loved it....Some great Asian fuzion dining....Canada was smart to entice many wealthy Chinese in Hong Kong, to come to Canada, before the China takeover in 1997.....Meanwhile we were taking in Haitians on rowboats....Canucks were way smarter in that deal, eh?.....I've been told Toronto is much like any large midwestern city....

When it comes to football the Canadian kids who do not go to a US high school is a step behind... our area's Carholic schools are always eager and welcoming...Those who are left behind play Canadian rules football which kills the developemnet of linemen because there is a DMZ in canada article 4 of the offside rule say D-Linemen must be a yard off of the ball..Also... Simon Fraser is a Canadian school playing American ball in an NCAA conference it would be good for the NFL if there were others
Toronto is New York..Just a lot cleaner and in spite of the Crack head Mayor efficiently run...Google up CBC and Mayor Ford there is a hilarious opera bit ..piss your pants funny....I assume that you have heard about the Wall Street scandal about high frequency traders...usually the big fish eat the little fish this is the biggest fish eat the big fish ..us guppies are too small to be filling...But it is in short an electronic , computer fraud that speeds up the high speed guys so they can fleece the big institutional investers, thus eventually screwing the little guy...Put a trillion or two on the table and someone is going to steal, and they aren't doing it because they are ghetto or desperate...they are just fargin' greedy....I bet they steal as much as all the muggers combned

Saw some of the 60 Minutes story, about the high speed frequency traders.....just another example of the extreme greed, mixed in with some criminal behavior....Wonder when exactly, did a "Fair Profit" become such a dirty word? Our country might actually be doing something about these inequities, if so many weren't involved.....I know about Mayor Ford, and am surprised that they haven't found a way to drop him.....seems that they seem amused by his act, and that the fact he is the Mayor, is kinda insignificant.....Watched the season finale of, Walking Dead last night....do you'll watch that?....puts a lot of people off, about the zombies...but, it is really about the strength of the relationships between the survivors.....Cubs lost their opener to Pittsburgh on a walk-off homer.....kinda same old, same old for my lifetime...lol...

Walking dead is by the same network that made 'Breaking bad',,Right?...I saw both of those in re-run with the episodes jumbled in sequence, so i am missing out on some of the charachter developement. But I can see why both became popular...
Jim Kelly's cancer news gets grimmer all the time...There is a new story in the Buffalo News this morning...link provided...
Also at the bottom of the page will be a link to the mayor Rob Ford opera...What it is that keeps him in place is the fact that short of a resignation or a conviction there is no way of getting rid of that...Ford earned the Canadian equivalent of the Tea party's support by finding convienient scapegoats in the immigrant community and by promising huge tax cuts and of course railing on an anti- Gov't theme...Some of the CBC interviews reveal that some of his supporter don't give a damn ..they love the guy.
In the stock market or in business in general 'fair profit' is scoffed at..The change in attitudes became toxic.

Hurrah....I'm hearing that Donald Trump is on his way to Buffalo...on a white horse...to save the Bills....lol....He's a clown for the media....Walking Dead is on AMC, with Mad Men.....That's a great article...Thurman Thomas is a class act....Kelly's wife gets your emotions, talking about Hunter's strength....I get choked up easier, as i get older...strange as hell.....Wish there was something they could do for his pain....guess a morphin pump, isn't allowed during treatment?....So sad, as i was watching the girl's Elite Eight....Undefeated Notre Dame's best player blew out her knee, in a win over Baylor to get to their Final Four...Too bad it might mean another EZ title for UCONN.....I've alway's thought alot for the NFL coach, Mike Zimmer....but he has said some shit about Johnny Manzeil that sounds like mean-spirited and i just don't get it......

The Donald to the rescue...Just like he is going to save New York State ...Just like he proved that the President as born in Kenya...What I mean by that, I wil believe it the day after i see it...I don't know if he is just jerking everyone around, if he really believes his own crap or what? My thought is if he is running for Governor....never mind not even the Donald spends $875 M just for PR...However if it is precieved that he is just jerking us around he would be best not to come back.

http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2014/4/1/5571530/...

That is a good article. Jim Kelly has grow up a lot since he signed with the USFL because he didn't want to be in Buffalo...I get choked up easier too. Must be an old man thing...theory a young guy all loaded up on testosterone and trying to prove him self and conquire the world has no time for that..Now that we are old we get it in spades.

I guess George Mira is likely the first of the quality Quarterbacks coming out of University of Miami....but, Jim Kelly is the first one, i remember.....Don't be too hard on the Donald.....I've seen his wife....lol....He is all about promoting himself, kinda like the Kardasians...except much smarter....Got a friend that manages part of his Championship Golf Course, down here and he has been treated well.....Knew the tennis pro, at Mara Lago, and he alway's seemed happy....So, i can't really blame the Donold for more than...Overexposure.......BTW, your Sabres are on today's Sportscenter Top Ten from yesterday.....So, Jay Gruden is gonna gamble on DeSean Jackson, with the Redskins, eh?....Wonder if Jon Gruden will ever coach again?....Love his pre-draft QB previews on ESPN....He nailed Russell Wilson....

Maybe Gruden thinks that Jackson will contribute with out hurting the team..I doubt it...The only way that happens is if he is in New England or San Fran. places that have a strong coach...and a team that doesn't 'need' him...I can't think of a great Miami U. QB before Jim Kelly he was a big part of turning that program around...The Donald was with Carl Palidino at a pro-gun event. Palidino is pushing hard to get Trump to run...Palidino was the Republican that Cuomo chewed up 4 years ago...Carl is from Buffalo he is a guy you could write a book about...But let him tell his own story...
http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjs538/the-10-dumbest...

The Sabres win agame..that is worthy of a highlight...The highlight either was highway robbery by the goalie Lueween or the shoot out winner by the new 'European vacation' Villie Leino who hasn't scored in 53 games..hadn't even shot on goal in 23 straight games...Not bad for $3m. per season

I would hope that Job#1, for Gruden would be teaching RG III to slide, like in baseball....but teamed up with Pierre Garcon, Jackson hopefully has found a home.....See that Belichek had Johnny Football come in for a look....i think they might be addressing the post-Brady years.....Do you get ESPN?....One of today's highlights is a Redwing flying past several Bruins to score....i actually saw bits of that game....Hate to see the dems doing the same shit i accuse Darrell Issa of, in their attacking the GM CEO.....W'e are talking about 13 deaths in just under 3 million cars.....Do you ever think our product liability intensity has often went too far.....When i was young, i learned that you could easily steal a 61-64 Chevrolet by just jamming a flathead screwdriver into the ignition, then twisting it....started right up.....lol.....Wish me luck today....Big Walmart with a list...lol...

Cheap easy lawsuits of all kinds have gone far past any justified point This is where the GOP has a point....Example Obamacare should have included something limiting the lawyers paydays...The dems may be guilty of a excess here...On the other hand GM knew of a defect that killed thirteen people...So having to answer some questions is only fair...But Citizens united declares that GM is a person...thus... The Dem's should indict the whole damn Corporation, try the corporation for murder ...jail the corporation, because GM is after all..is a person...They should be using this to put the very idea of corporate personhood on trial...
Gruden should be good for RGIII...He knows quarterbacks...He knows the NFL...If he can turn him into a Quarterback Gruden will have earned his keep...I had heard that almost every team had a rep at Johnny Footballs pro-day workout...Billechek would have to trade down to get him....Saw almost all of the Detroit v. Boston game Boston was dominate in the first half of the game..That was a great goal

Nyquist is, i think the guy that scored that goal,,,,Redwings might be alright if they can get in the playoffs, since all their injured guys are getting better now.....Datsyuk practiced, but did'nt play.....Gruden need's to really change RG III's bad habits, if he is to survive.....I think what might effect the early 1st round, will be that both Clowney and Manziel had great pro days....It would be very difficult to pass on a freak, like Clowney....he ran a 4.5 Forty....that is wideout speed.....We are gonna disagree on limits of manufacturer liability, as far as GM goes.....i find 13 dead, outta 2.7 million vehicles over a 9 year span, acceptable.....sorry....We need to set some realistic limitations on corporate liability, especially if we desire a return in manufacturing.......Obamacare would have been much better, had both parties agreed to work on it, together....Frankly, i am surprised that the Reich has been whining all this time, merely on distaste about the ACA and the ghosts of Benghazi.....

The Sabres play in St. Louis tonight...Miller doesn't wanna play against his old team, Never mind the fact that there are a slew of ex Sabres...If I were Boston I would want anyone but Detroit...Clowney is a freak and he will go in the first three picks...I am suprised some one like Billechek hasn't tried to get him....If all you need is that last piece Clowney could be valuable
The opening sentence of my previous post condemned easy lawsuits and the Democratic Party which has shielded frivolous lawsuits, giving the GOP credit for being correct, we are on the same page there....The part about putting GM on trial was scarcasm, at it's lamest..Towit..The Democrats would be best off indicting the company as if it were a person..shaming the 'Corperate personhood' canard. As opposed to this side show...13 dead over 9 years is not an outrage...the outrage was GM knew of the flaw, a made a choice not to adress it.. it would cost pennies per vechile + an hour of a tech's time in the garage...If 13 died of various causes then you would be 100% correct ...The Reich, the guys deep in the bunker there is no arguement to surreal to make, as long as it can be used on the President

Hope the Sabres beat the Blues, for the Blackhawks sake....Yeah, the way last nights game went down, where the Redwings just seemed to dial it up a notch, scoring two goals in the 3rd period, within like 6 minutes....was something the Bruins should never wanta see....lol....Yeah, should be fascinating to see who gets Clowney and how he does....We've both seen some freaks that did'nt work out too....Mandarich comes to mind....About the GM thang....i used to do business with a walking shithead, that was a weasel lawyer that belonged to a firm, that went after companies in class action liability suits....i recall them going after Subaru for some such BS.....Wonder how defined GM really knew about this defect, for real and how far back.....Senate and House badgering means zero to me.....it could be an SNL skit....

The Sabres lost to the Blues 2-1, they put in a decent effort...Tonight Detroit with Pavel Datsyuk back in the line up...Luiween has played some decent games in goal he needs a little more seasoning but looks like he has the basic tools...Mary Wilson inherits the Bills, according to the Buffalo News there may be a sale on the books before next season...
What the Senate is doing now is a dog and pony show for the sake of being able to say "We did , something"...Any blame for GM would result from knowing the defect was there and making an informed choice to do nothing...The younger of the two brothers that i do stocks with is a pro-labor lawyer ..his take is that zero defects is a goal, but defect will always be part of the game and he wonders when will GM offer a settlement to the families of those 13?...A settlement of some type seems fair.... And wise in that it would take the heat off the company and something like $13 million to GM is chicken feed

Gotta think those night games on consecutive nights, is kinda rough.....especially as much as these guys get thrown around....Maybe Boston does'nt give a crap because they are leading their division, but they have the Blackhawks beat them in a shootout, then next night Mapleleafs beat them....I know NBA guys hate back to back games......Blues and Avalanche have quickly gotten better....What do you think of Patrick Roy as a coach?.....With the shared TV revenue and merchandising deal that the NFL teams have....with the Bills selling out games.....Why would the team move? Not sure Goodell would allow it, especially if it was'nt to a city, that he had'nt already percieved as, in need.....Yeah, about GM....i agree with your friend....Perfection should be a goal, as it will never to be a reality.....Seem's they would be smarter, to somehow, head off these attacks earlier.....Fiat just had a recall...Who coulda seen that coming?...LOL....

the NFL shares, merchandise, gate and TV revenue...The what they dont share will be the key here. First Bills average ticket price is a couple bucks lower, they split smaller pot for those 8 games...But luxury boxes are not shared and in Los Angles the rental on those would be a lot higher...Parking not shared...In a brand new stadium you would have resaurants and bars that do not share revenue...So as socialist as rhe NFL is the playing field is not entirely level....The biggest thing in our favor is time...maybe tje Jags or Rams will beat a new owner to the punch.
Patrick Roy seems to be a very good coach, he has gotten good results out of a fairly young team...The Av's are a year or so away from being real threat to win it all. The Blues had been on the rise for a couple of years...Lack of goaltending had hurt them in the playoffs...Now that they have the issue resolved...Those games on consecutive nights are bad worse is when a team that is on a road trip plays in consecutive nights against home teams that are rested...Which is what the Bruins were facing in Toronto
GM could have been more nimble and proactive and would have avoided this...Which brings up the issue of product liability lawsuits...What happens when a company refuses to do the right thing?

Sometimes Topix is so screwy....i did a long post lastnite that disappeared.....NCAA's....i will take Florida and Kentucky, even though i hate the concept of an all-sec final....About the dream stadium...unless you have more events, than 8-10 home games, restaurants and bars would'nt survive financially....It was easier when the Dolphins and Marlins were in one stadium, to make that financial sense of that format.....I'd bet that Jacksonville is who is LA bound, as they only have to get outta a stadium deal....Also like you St. Louis sells out, so i don't see that....For the Raiders sake. i wish it was them....as Oakland is Detroit with a port....lol....About GM, imagine if we held an automaker to those liability standards when we were growing up?....Heck, my mom had a Corvair....
