The Buffalo Bills are looking at the possibility that they may be sold in the near future to a new owner, and that owner may end up being musician, rock star and Buffalo anti-Christ Bon Jovi.
The main reason no one in Buffalo wants Bon Jovi near their team is because of the fact that there’s a decent chance he’s moving the franchise to Toronto — because the group he’s bidding with is from Toronto and the city has been looking for an NFL presence to fill out the pro sports scene.
According to the Toronto Sun, Bon Jovi’s group got their bid for the Bills rejected for being ‘competitively low’, something that Bills fans are likely both insulted by but extremely happy about.
In one of a bundle of surprising new developments in this melodrama, QMI Agency has learned the Toronto trio is expected on Tuesday to resubmit a higher, non-binding initial bid for the Bills — probably between $1 billion and $1.1 billion.
But don’t get too excited Bills fans, as someone out there hates you just enough to give Bon Jovi a second chance to submit a bid that isn’t stupid low.
The group also has been asked to submit greater assurances it plans to keep the Bills long-term in the Buffalo area.
So not only is Bon Jovi the subject of a lot of hatred in Buffalo at the moment, he turns around and tries to lowball his way into getting the team. He may not understand how bidding works, or he may be using a New Jersey muscle tactic to show Bills fans the can tell him what to do to himself all day long, but he won’t go quietly — or without their team, if he bids a little higher.
