  1. the WIVB digital broadcast antenna is near East Aurora. most big box stores - Best Buy, Walmart, Target, even Home Depot, probably have basic antennas in stock in the $20-$30 range. I live in Kenmore and pickup channel 4 without any issues with a basic antenna.
  2. I live in a house next door to the Kenmore Presbyterian Church on Delaware Ave. (I'm a tenant) The church was recently sold to a developer, who plans to convert it into apartments. Tentative plan is for 24 1 BR and 11 2 BR. What will this do to the value of the house that I live in? Will it go up or down? Here's a Buffalo News article with more details, if you don't mind their semi-pay wall. https://buffalonews.com/business/local/plan-to-convert-kenmore-presbyterian-church-to-apartments-aims-to-preserve-buildings-history/article_b29d0236-2586-11ed-a891-e3f6d823c43e.html#tracking-source=home-top-story
  3. The problem with this is fairness. As the season wears on, lots of teams deactivate players who aren't healthy enough to play, but not injured enough to go on IR. If you had 53-man gameday rosters, the team with 50 healthy players would almost always beat the team with 45 healthy players.
  4. To point out the obvious, the defensive coaches review game film every week and grade all the players. I think it's safe to say the players that grade out better wind up getting more snaps in future games. If the number of snaps is roughly the same, apparently those players have been grading out fairly evenly over recent games. Here's another site with snap counts that may be in a more convenient format. Some positions are missing, but all the DL is listed. https://www.footballguys.com/stats/snap-counts/teams?team=BUF&year=2021
  5. missed the cut. The top 25 teams are playing today, -19. Josh's team was -15. Looking at the leaderboard, Mitchell was -10 thru 3 rounds, so Josh shot -5 relative to his handicap over 3 rounds.
  6. I haven't been to a game in a few years, but I suspect people still get there early for the opener, and the "preferred" lots/parking will fill up pretty quickly - by 11:00 at the latest. If your friends can get to the stadium by 10:00, and of course you're already there, you'll probably be able to hold a spot for them. If they are much later than that, you might want to have a backup plan.
  7. here's another article: https://www.tomahawknation.com/florida-state-football-fsu-noles/2020/6/22/21299847/retirement-heart-attack-nick-olearys-fsu-football-florida-state-tight-end-raiders-dolphins He went to the emergency room and found out he'd had a heart attack. They performed corrective surgery and hopefully next year he'll be healthy enough to resume his career.
  8. that's a NFL Network game, also shown on Ch 7 in Buffalo.
  9. WGR550 is listed here: http://worldradiomap.com/us-ny/buffalo free, nothing to download.
  10. somebody has good aim. this video appears to show Fournette getting hit with a beer can on his way out of the stadium. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2808240-video-leonard-fournette-appears-to-be-hit-by-beer-thrown-by-fan-after-ejection?utm_source=cnn.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=editorial
  11. https://www.profootballrumors.com/2018/11/bills-release-cb-phillip-gaines I didn't see anything about this on the Bills site, so I googled "Phillip Gaines", and discovered Cleveland has already picked him up on waivers. Not sure who they plan on starting in place of Gaines. Levi Wallace was promoted to active roster.
  12. If Allen starts week 1 he'll make history. I saw a graphic, probably during draft TV coverage: In the modern era, no team that drafted a QB in round 1, and made the playoffs the previous season has ever started that QB in week 1.
  13. The guy is a professional substance abuse counselor. The only plausible explanation I can think of is Bills management contacted that organization (crisiscm) and asked them to get in touch with Richie. I'm guessing they did something similar for Zay Jones. Richie's reaction certainly leads one to believe he has serious personal issues.
