    Without Wilson, the AFL would’ve folded and the NFL likely wouldn’t be what it is today. Thank you to a great man!

    A great man, business person, WWII vet, and a towering figure in the annals of NFL history. The NFL wouldn’t be what it is today if it weren’t for Mr. Wilson and others at important moments in its’ history; and I hope that fans all over – not just the millions and millions in Western New York – will realize that, and mourn his passing.

    Thank you, sir, for what you’ve meant to the people of Buffalo. We were lucky – the football gods gave us both you, AND Jim Kelly.
