Would you change team name if you had the power?

You can thank George Halas of the Bears for being the reason we were not granted the ability to join the NFL.  

 

Prior to that, you can thank Dan Reeves and Bert Bell for why the Bills of the AAFC were not absorbed into the NFL in 1950.

Each month when my wife and I pay our bills I (usually) grumble and say ,”Why should we pay them, they haven’t been playing very well?”  So maybe they should be the Buffalo Money Owed.

Maybe the logo can be a dollar sign with wings to signify that the money is flying away.

 

Since every game broadcast includes the obligatory scenes of chicken wings and Niagara Falls, the name should be the Buffalo Wings and Falls.

That would be like calling money the “ Dollar Steve” and it would be dumb. It is the “Dollar Bill”  it’s not the “Buffalo Steve’s” it’s the “Buffalo Bills”  get your head outta your...  DC Tom needs to have his talk with you.

 

Go Bills!!!

Our former roller hockey team. I liked the name then as well.

The name is fine, but they should incorporate Buffalo Bill Cody again. Not necessarily on their helmet logo, but on some gear. 

 

I agree.  Very good point.

Here are early AFL pr posters

 

 

Thanks!

 

I suspected that, but never saw the logo before now. Program predates me by 18 days.

Bullets is not possible, given the political climate this century. It's a non-starter.

On the contrary, 'the Bills' may be best name in the NFL.  Because virtually nobody (except established fans) knows what the name refers to, it is in the abstract realm and thus can be anything you make of it.  So, whereas a Lion is a lion

and a Cowboy is a cowboy, a Bill is up to you...and to you...and to you.  That's why 'the Bills' make me want to shout!

It's true.  When people outside of Buffalo ask me what a Bill is, I like to say it's a baby buffalo.  They usually believe it.

Instead of Buffalo Bills, I'd rename them to Buffalo Wings.

Just straight up Buffalo Wings.

If a game is on, they always show the falls and someone, somewhere making wings anyway, might as well just embrace it. 

The city is already known for Buffalo Wings, why not make them known for THE Buffalo Wings too? lol

No, but I would remove the statue of Ralph, just like they did to JoePa.

Don't change the name. Change the logo. A flying, crime fighting dollar bill.

You have not been around very long then.  There was a poster who wanted to trade our started DE to cardinals for their backup backup QB John Skelton and convinced a number of (formerly) respected posters of the validity of his insane idea.

 

Oh and on the original issue there was actually a poll on which name the new team was to be called and Buffalo Bills was the favorite.

I liked the team's original name -- Bisons. I've never cared for "Bills" even though this will always be my team. I'd like to see new new unis too -- Beige, brown (trim) and a copper bison head on the helmet.
