What the Governor said...

On WGR Radio, Governor Paterson said, "I have a relationship with Commissioner Goodell and he told me that if things ever get bad [about the Bills leaving], he will call me. He hasn't called me yet."

 

My questions to my fellow Rumblers are:

A: Is Paterson credible on this issue? If Paterson is telling the truth, is Goodell?

B: If Goodell told him that the Bills were moving to Toronto or somewhere else, what would Paterson do? What could he do?

C: What precisely is the nature of the "relationship" between Goodell and Paterson? Who first sought the other out and why?

D: As Paterson is a life-long downstater, would he use the same sort of regionalist bias towards NYC as many other state political figures have over the last century and actively antagonize upstate? As a Democrat, he can more safely risk alienating upstate and still win election than a Republican or Independent could. Would he do so in this instance?

E: Would Paterson use state funds (presumably by helping to fund a new stadium) to help keep the Bills in Buffalo should the league threaten to move the team?

 

Discuss.
