Bills make sense as candidate to move to L.A.

4

Didn't see this posted on here, apologies if I missed it. Anyway, nothing breaking here other than the apparent declining quality of PFW's editorial staff. A few issues with this article... Owner Ralph Wilson's position has never changed — the team will go to the highest bidder after he dies. While he has expressed his desire for the Bills to stay in Buffalo, it will be out of his hands. This is an assumption at best, and fabrication at worst. Wilson's estate will handle the sale of the team when he dies according to any provisions in Wilson's will and league interests. While this very well may be the highest bidder, it is not a certainty. Although it is the MLB, Cuban has been rebuffed multiple times just because the owners don't like him. a move to L.A. makes sense, where... ... the TV market is huge. Fairbanks clearly doesn't have any understanding of NFL economics if he thinks this is a factor. The Bills, unlike the Vikings, Chargers and Rams, will be up for sale sooner than later, as Wilson is 92 years old. While I understand that mortality tables aren't kind to someone Mr. Wilson's age, it is grossly in appropriate to assume the death of someone who is living, especially in such callous terms. None of this is to suggest Buffalo fans shouldn't be nervous about the future of the team in WNY (I for one am mortified). However, that does not give license to such wanton commentary that artificially raises the collective anxiety level any higher than need be.
