Bucky and Sully Blackballed By The Pegulas?

Recommended Posts

I came across and interesting interview on Twitter with Bucky Gleason.  In the interview he sounds good about a number of topics.  Including the Buffalo News - he said that the new management from outside of Buffalo too over and didn’t understand Buffalo sports.  He said they bought into the Twitter mob that said they were too negative.  So when they took away his column, he knew it was time to leave.

 

He also said that the Pegulas and the Bills significantly influence the local media either directly ($$$$) or indirectly (advertising $$$) - alluding to WGR and other outlets in Buffalo.  

 

Later he said that they both tried to get press credentials from the Bills to cover the team.  The Bills denied their website The Maven - which is kind of like a free version of The Athletic - and are the only team in the NFL team to deny press rights to The Maven.  He later tried getting credentialed through 1270 AM, where he has a radio show.  1270 AM was already approved but since Bucky and Sully weren’t on the original press list for 1270, they were again denied.  Again, Bucky says this is very rare in the NFL.

 

His take is that the Pegulas and The Bills are essentially blackballing Bucky and Sully because they don’t like how critical the duo has been.  In his mind, this is an atrocious and petty thing to do to a journalist.  

 

Its a facinating interview.  Check it out:

Good for the Pegulas.  Those two clowns have blamed everything but cholera on the Bills organization.

 

Go Pound Sand.

 

You deserve nothing.

lol.  Bucky and Sully sounds like a little kids cartoon!

 

The only thing worse than Sully's columns are his golf game.  Terry should tell him, Break 80 and you can sit in my suite!

I'm sure they are getting black balled and that is totally petty, unprofessional, and even sleazy.

 

F the Pegulas.

It is petty by the Pegulas, but at this point Bucky and Sully are slightly more than glorified posters here.

I think its crappy, the Pegulas have thin skin, and as owners, deserve to have poop thrown their way.

 

 

People complain about john Murphy's sunshine and rainbows radio, yet loathe the media who is hard on the team.

Assuming it's true, seems a little petty.  But if I had been called a liar and stupid in print by someone I might also decide I don't want them around my team.

??  I think Bucky is the one who said Kim Pegula shouldn't be at the hockey meetings originally.  Totally fine with me if the "petty and sleazy" Pegulas hold a grudge over that misogyny.

I think it's petty of the owners to censor coverage of their team.  With that said, Bucky was extremely stupid with that take.

It seems the problem with Buffalo’s sports teams start with ownership who appear steadfast in crushing voices of dissent, and in addition wanting to buy out players who are protesting. This to me is a problem of someone who is a control freak. Don’t think for a second that Kim Pegula crying poor “we spent all our money on the team” is a opening salvo at controlling the narrative that significant tax payer dollars will be needed for a new stadium. The Pegula’s are the last people in the U.S. to beat Trump & make him look like a fool. These are some competitive and controlling Mofos.

What about the pettiness of the "journalists" who don't understand that with actions come repercussions?  The Pegulas have to face up to whatever their franchises are on a daily basis.  Who do Bucky and Sully have to answer to?

I always knew Bucky was a sharp one.

Those guys can choke on one.  Good for terry. I’d have done the same.  I’m glad that I can actually contribute my $ to the BN blitz now that they’re gone.  Can’t imagine what their articles would look like this year.

Off topic, but today I was listening to a local talk show in Rochester. One of the hosts, who's a well known sports guy in Rochester, was talking about how the Pegulas, or Terry, are the reason for the whole Peterman debacle. Said a source close to the team said Terry was in love with Peterman and is the reason he started against the Chargers last year and then again at the beggining of this season. Also the reason he's still on this team. He didn't say the source, but said if he could say the source, we'd all know it was 100% credible. Anyways, it was pretty interesting. Don't know if any other Rochester folk here heard it
