Will Trump Buy the Buffalo Bills?
April 1, 2014
BUFFALO N.Y. – ESPN and WBEN are reporting that Billionaire Donald Trump has said that he has been approached by a group of people that wants him to invest in the Buffalo Bills NFL franchise. Trump said he would look at it, and give it serious consideration. Rumors have been swirling since the death of the Owner Ralph Wilson jr. last week that the club would be sold and possibly moved out of Buffalo. Los Angeles is a city that has been trying to land an NFL franchise since the metropolis lost the Rams, and later the Raiders who played in the rose bowl stadium in Pasedena, before moving back to Oakland.
Western New Yorkers are concerned that the Bills may be moved including retired Bills legend Jim Kelly, who has been in the news recently because of his battle with cancer. Kelly himself called Donald Trump and asked that he consider buying the team. Kelly had said in an interview with ESPN in 2010 that he would do everything in his power to keep the franchise that he directed to four straight super bowls in Buffalo. Trump has said that he would like to see the football team stay in Buffalo adding that he thought that it would be catastrophic for Buffalo to lose the team in the event of a move to another city. Buffalo Bills fans now collectively hold their breaths as their hero quarterback fights both cancer and to keep the Bills in Western New York.April 1, 2014
