Bucky and Sully Blackballed By The Pegulas?

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

 

F the Pegulas.

 

 

I totally agree. What the !@#$ is wrong with these knuckledraggers who are against free speech and freedom of the press?

Are you kidding me? What the hell is wrong with a dissenting point of view? This is America you a$$holes. 

 

I am really worried for this country if we believe it is alright to attack the free press and complain about freedom of speech. The Pegulas should be ashamed of themselves! What an un-American disgraceful act of cowardice. What a bunch of pussies who are afraid to hear criticism. You may disagree with Sullivan and Gleason, but it is an American right to be able to express their opinions without being blackballed by some arrogant thin skinned billionaire.

God save America from these morons.

Can you recommend one that explains why anyone claiming to be press has an absolute right to have any question answered by whomever they demand it from?

I never found Bucly or Sulky to be very good at covering Buffalo sports teams.  The easiest thing to do is criticize, which they did in spades.  The hardest thing to do is get breaking news and meaningful insights, which they almost never did.   Time and time again the biggest Bills news would come from National media outlets and these two clowns played catch-up. 

 

Just because you are THE MEDIA doesn’t mean you don’t have to be good at your job.  Good riddance.  I don’t miss them and I avoid their second rate outlet.

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

 

No, but who was the host that said it? Rochester Sports coverage ranges from awful to bad.

Like I said, it could be true or it could be complete non sense. Dittulio isn't a drama queen sports guy though. It's not like he's trying to get a job at ESPN. I believe that he probably did hear it from a reliable source, but still doesn't make it true necessarily

And Schopp and bulldog get a pass? They are awful to the Bills. Could the Pegulas please ban them as well. 

 

Yes please.

 

And I don't buy that it is extremely rare in the NFL. There are plenty of owners who have thin skin and get easily offended and I bet journalists get black balled all the time.

No it is interesting, thanks for sharing. And I don't mean that sarcastically at all.

...and how much of their criticism was wrong over the years? Years of futility fueled their criticism.

 

If anything they've been advocates for the organization provide their fans with a better product.

It doesn't happen all the time because it's an awful look. 

 

The Marlins did this to a guy who had press credentials for I believe over a decade. I don't even like baseball, but heard about it because it made national news. It was on deadspin.com, the NY post, ESPN radio. 

 

https://deadspin.com/petty-ass-derek-jeter-yanks-credentials-from-radio-host-1826168084.

 

It probably speaks more to irreverence of these two than it being a common thing. They don't really have anyone backing them.

 

Btw, that story ended with that reporter being granted credentials again.

Hey, i'm Terry Pegula's son. I am entitled to one sixth of his holdings...... where's the facts to back this up?  They don't matter.  Just take ME at my word.  

This is what Bucky is doing.  Much like most B-Lo news reporters, making statements with no facts to back them up, if only opinions or hot takes.

People got tired of the coloumnists pretending to be hosts of Pardon The Interuption on daily Bills  and Sabres articles. No in depth investigation, ONLY their opinions- which were a broken record. And it got old.  And they got run out. And now they're bitter. 

Where's the facts on Bucky's claim?  Sounds like sour grapes..... until there's evidence.

I happen to agree with Bucky & Sully for the most part.  They may be negative most of the time, but the Bills suck most of the time.

Funny thing is a lot of fans in this forum

have said “Bucky and Sully are always negative” then proceed to complain and over exaggerate about how bad Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott have done this season.  I guess it’s ok to be “negative” if you are a fan.

I’ve actually heard Murphy cut off Steve Tasker when he was criticizing the team. I think it was after the week two loss.

 

I say censoring the press is good if they have views that I disagree with.

 

 

WTF??  lol

While I agree with some of what you're saying. About how people react to criticism.

 

This isn't a first amendment issue at all. Two guys not being granted access to your football team has nothing to do with the state of the country, and certainly isn't ruining it.

 

Get a grip. I criticize the Pegulas and think it's a bit of a bush league move. You are taking this to a crazy place.

 

Anyways, what's your opinion on Kaepernick not being in the league, just curious.

He doesn't know what he's talking about. Him telling anyone to crack open a history book is incredible.

 

He lacks perspective, or even really an understanding of what he's talking about.

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

 

Go Pound Sand.

 

You deserve nothing.

 

 

They blamed the Bills for sucking for a long time. Because the Bills sucked for a long time.

 

Overall I like the Pegulas. But if true, this is juvenile.

Well since their performance was so stellar, and they are so widely respected in their field, I am sure they will have no trouble finding big jobs working for major news outlets or sports networks.

 

Yet, for some reason, they are doing what ... an AM radio gig in Buffalo and posting their drivel on third rate internet sites.

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.

Funny thing is that as I’m streaming WGR on my lunch break or commuting down here in the A, I feel like Murph has been very critical of the Bills of late, more so than Tasker—to the point where I took notice of it because I was expecting more Chris Brown lite than anything else from him. Also, the local Atlanta media is generally more powder puff on the Falcons than WGR on Bills, IMO, even during early bad stretch this year for them
