Is the Bills in Toronto deal causing late season ticket renewals?

Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Spor

The Buffalo Bills are later than normal in sending out their season ticket renewals. Is it because of a forthcoming change to the Bills in Toronto Series?

A change in the Buffalo Bills offseason calendar could indicate a big change is on the way for the Bills in Toronto Series. John Kryk of the Toronto Sun speculated as much Wednesday evening, noting that Bills season ticket holders hadn't yet received renewal notices for the 2014 season. In 2013, the renewal deadline was March 8.

Kryk writes that a team spokesman said the notices would be mailed next Wednesday, March 5, despite the Bills previously telling season ticket holders the balance would be due "in early March."

The most logical reason, per Kryk, for this unannounced postponement could be ongoing negotiations for changes to the Toronto Series. If the Bills were to play eight home games at Ralph Wilson Stadium, they couldn't come to season ticket holders after the game was added. Even if an agreement hasn't been reached, the postponement could signal that it's at least a possibility.

Kryk also reports that team president Russ Brandon would not comment on any changes to the Toronto series while attending the Combine after stating publicly in December that everything, including pulling out of the long-despised series, was on the table. Earlier this year, Kryk broke the news of a meeting between leaders at Rogers and the Bills that took play during the second week of January - a meeting he now says didn't happen, though it could have simply been rescheduled.

"But I've learned that at least one Rogers representative was in New York City on Super Bowl weekend," writes Kryk. "So was Mary Owen, the Bills' executive vice-president of strategic planning and the club's point person on Bills-in-Toronto negotiations. Talks might have taken place there."

It's all speculation, but it also all makes sense.
