  1. EJ colors my perception, of his entire Tenure..
  2. The back of the 100's are ideal. Too many people stand when they don't have to, however...
  3. I'd like to see Byrd added in the coming season. He will be 81 years old in Sept.
  4. I still opt for the cards, but I have been told that they will be going away, down the road. I think that having NFL Game Pass, gives some tangible value to the package, instead of getting a few trinkets, and a Media Guide, as in past years...
  5. I received this message from a friend from my old Hometown, of Watervliet, NY, which was also the original home of #42 Butch Byrd who was part of the AFL Champion Bills, from 1964-'70. Capital District folks, take note! ..........We will discuss the campaign for Butch’s name to be included on the Bills Wall of Fame. IT’S TIME…..that George “Butch” Byrd is included on the Buffalo Bills Wall of Fame! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butch_Byrd (Mods may need to move this post) Meeting: Patrick’s Pub 606 Third Avenue Watervliet, NY 12189 Wednesday, May 11th. 6:00 pm Contact: Charlie Diamond: Diamondjupin@yahoo.com
  6. I'm not an engineer, but I haven't noticed any chunks flying off of the structure. If the situation was critical, building inspectors would put a halt to the occupancy of the facility. BTW, Candlestick Park (Which opened in 1960) was open for another 25 years AFTER the 1989 San Francisco Earthquake. Reinforced concrete, is pretty tough stuff...
  7. I agree that the stadium is long in the tooth. I do believe that there is more life left in it, than what is being advertised.
  8. I completely agree with you. The new stadium, was driven by pressure from the NFL, IMO. There was a tall, historic church in my hometown, that was labeled as 'Listing', and was in imminent danger of collapse. It took them a few weeks for them to tear it down, and the Bell Tower remained upright, until the last few days. A big box supermarket complex, occupies the site, now. It was obvious to me, that the structural report was fudged, and money was the driving consideration, to remove the building. So it goes, w/HighMark... The upper deck, would shake back in the '80's, as people stomped their feet. If there was any danger, the structure would've been condemned.
  9. My opinion. Lots of Cinder Blocks, which surprised me. I didn't see anything that made me think it is superior to the Orchard park facility, and it is more recently constructed.
  10. Happy to help! My seats are on the 50, in the lower Bowl, (And on the aisle) :-) Seats in that section were over $9k ea. Seats near the field, were $12k, if I recall correctly.
  11. "Sign EJ Manuel, to back up Trubisky"
  12. The survey disappears, once it is completed, but here is the link to it: https://bbns2022.sawtoothsoftware.com/login.html
  13. $22 million, was the cost of 'Rich' Stadium..
  14. Some of us likely won’t be around in 10-15 years, much less 30. A 30 year season ticket ‘Mortgage’, is throwing good money, after bad. If the day comes when the team is stinkin’ up the joint again, don’t hold your breath, if you suddenly need to sell your PSL..
  15. This is where 'Corporate' has to step up to the plate.
  16. Winning helps to fuel the relative value of a Franchise, in my opinion. The Bills may be last in therms of value, but an $800M return, in a handful of years, is not too shabby: https://www.forbes.com/teams/buffalo-bills/?sh=26d2641c625d
  17. "Affordable options", puts me in front of a TV, going forward. $27k? Nah. I'm not going back to, what took me over 30 years to move up from, for sure.
  18. The Corporate Suite holders, need to do the 'heavy lifting', regarding PSL's. It is nothing but an entertainment write off to them, anyway. What concerns me, is the possibility that PSL's could happen in the remaining years, of the current facility. Geez, and Heinz Field, is a dump, in my opinion. Agreed. The Pegula's asset in the Bills, has only increased in value.
  19. I received a survey from the Bills, RE: the new stadium. They are putting out the feelers, so they can determine how far they can push the market, for PSL's. My 3 lower bowl 50 yard line seats, would have a PSL of $9000.00. *Per seat*. An estimated ticket price, of $2500+ for each seat, on top the the PSL's. $27k, is just not happening. That is not possible, in my retired World. Thoughts??
  20. I came down with COVID before the home playoff game, against the Pats. I was wrapped in blankets, watching the game, @ home. I sit on the 50 yard line in the lower bowl, and a pair of my seats for face value, went unsold on Ticket Exchange..
  21. He'll get a free Captain's cap, for showing up....
