Was this sent to season ticket holders only? 

No, I received one as well...not a season ticket holder

I filled out the survey. I think it took you down different directions depending how you answer the questions. I didn't know how serious they were regarding completely renovating The Ralph. I believe they may be rethinking the whole new stadium thing. A lot of questions about how much you'd be willing to spend...if ... this/that. Definitely no to any PSL. I also felt it was a feeler for potential season ticket buyers. I expect to get another email soon informing me of season ticket offers.

Just took it as well. To me, maybe slightly “felt” more slanted towards major renovation. 

 

I agree, did seem slanted toward major renovations that could incorporate many of the other questions. 

 

Personally, as an out of town fan, I'd be more inclined to buy season tickets if I didn't have to worry about the weather for late-season (or even very rainy early season) games.  Plus, the biggest home-field advantage we have is our fans, and a dome amplifies the sound.    I was hoping for more questions about a dome/retractable roof.

it really was.  seem like they want to know if you're willing to pay, and what you're willing to pay for.

  Well, no sense of beating around the bush about it.

Just to point it out the Pegulas are dumping $18 million on training area expansion.

Very smart. With the candian dollar weak ( $1.33 = $1.00 US) any talk of hotels being filled after a game at a downtown stadium is hogwash.  With improvements at the peace bridge, Rep Brian Higgins said crossing time will be cut in half when current improvements are complete. One thing to considered parking now is in a centralized area. Easy to police. Orchard Park has a low crime rate. Buffalo parking scattered all over the place. Buffalo crime rate now, not so low. The rail line in Buffalo is only 4 miles. 

  I think that OP has to be the odds on favorite right now.  Most of the infrastructure is in place for a new stadium if they so choose.  A re-fab will be a matter of how many dollars they want to spend on that if that is the direction they want to go.

of most interest:

  • Roof was mentioned only once.
  • Location options for a new stadium: North, South, East of Buffalo, Downtown, or current location
  • % increase willing to pay for a new, state-of-the-art stadium
  • Possibility that lower level sideline seats could become "club" level
  • Interest level in a new, membership-only pre/post game gathering spot that includes food, non-alcoholic beverage

to me....this was mostly about testing the maximum revenue this market will bare

 

will you pay for a personal seat license

 

will you buy luxury suite or club seats

 

will you pay $2,000 / yr per ticket (currently $1,000) for lower bowl

Yes.  I answered 1 Milking Shed Way, but not sure that's the correct address...

 

(actually it asked what state I lived in)

How about posting the substance of the survey itself?

 

That would be interesting for those who haven't received it.

 

My only real opinion about any of it is that a new stadium, should one be built, MUST be in downtown Buffalo.

 

It would do wonders for the area.

I didn't but I belong to several Facebook Groups about the Bills.  Those that got the survey posted the link to these groups. I took the survey.

Got the survey I’m guessing because I had season tickets during the Jauron era (awesome years!).

 

Haven’t been to a home game in like 5 years tho. 

 

Do they really want want my opinion?

Just took it. I hope everyone did their civic duty and voted to keep the stadium (whether new or renovated) in orchard park 🍻

Residing in Amherst, I was very tempted to select "move it North of Buffalo", but I did select OP...

It was a very interesting survey.  I am concerned that the Buffalo market will not support PSLs.  A stadium renovation would be the only way to avoid PSLs.

In my opinion, PSLs are a scam.  it's just a license to allow you to buy season tickets.  We don't need a license now, so if anyone is getting this survey, I'd comment against them.

 

It can be a scam, but it's also a way of taxing people who will use a facility to pay for said facility. Seems kind of fair, no?  Really you are lending money to the Pegulas to finance construction. Would be nice if they eventually refunded the money. But stadiums are expensive, and if you don't want tax money paying for all of it (will definitely be a part of it) then those who will use the facility have to chip in.

Don't bet on it.  Renovation will still cost 50-70% of new construction.

I live in NH. I chose downtown with a roof. (Sorry, Hammer.)  I hit 60 and don't want to freeze my saggy nuts anymore.

Assuming the cost of cowboys stadium (1.2 billion) you'd be on the hook for 1200 still.

I hope your tax dollars pay for it! Wear some underwear so your not dragging.
