Another Argument for Bills to Not Build a Billion $ Palace in B/Lo

Recommended Posts

What's not true? The Bills don't get revenue sharing from the league because they are one of the lowest revenue franchise? That other NFL Owners like Jerry Jones enjoy being charitable sharing more of their revenue with lower revenue teams?

 

If a franchise isn't willing to what's asked to try and increase revenue. The league has determined that New Era doesn't meet their standards and needs to be upgraded to increase revenue.


The others owners are t going to force the Bills to move.

 

All teams equally share in the shared revenue, whether they are high or low earners. 
 

The vast majority of Jerry’s revenue is not shared.He and the other owners aren’t suffering because the low ticket price of their away games gate receipts...

 

Is “the league” going to force the Colts, Bengals,  and Lions to move if they don’t bring up their revenue? How has that stadium worked out for getting the Colts to lift then out of revenue generating bottom feeder status?

 

This is a story to talk about in the off season. Nothing more..

Am I the only person who expects El Pugaul to slap his dick on the table, alongside a cool Bill(ion), pay for a new stadium himself, and say "bring it *****!"

 

The man would become a legend, and that precedent would change the sporting world.

 

Day drinking and doing laundry.

Yep, you are the only one that thinks that. He will forgo $400m(ish) from the state? Absolutely not

Are the owners greedy, YES, is it a monopoly, YES.  But if you love the Bills and want them in Buffalo for the next 50 years for your kids and your kids/kids then they need a new modern home.  Significant rebuild of NEF of a DT stadium is the only way to ensure they are where they are meant to be.  And it does not matter what any of us want, we don't own the asset, we did not spend over $1B to buy the team.    This is the reality of the NFL and business in general.

The state will be contributing something like that.
 

Before someone goes to “the state is broke” or whatever. It will end up happening. That’s just the way it is.

One thing I will say about video boards, I don't care how big you make it, I find it really screws you up when you're sitting on the opposite side of the stadium that the video is shot from.  Half of the people in the stadium end up watching everything in reverse of what you're seeing in front of you and I found it became very annoying.

 

I had really good seats too, club level, but still could see better looking at the replay, except it's in reverse of what I just saw with my eyes.

There is nothing different between putting a new stadium downtown and one in OP

 

One in downtown won't revitalize the city or start make crazy cash. There is nothing to show that it will bump the economy

 

They just need to build it in a new era lot

There is a difference between putting one downtown  over one in OP. The tailgating will be limited, so fans will have to go the bars and restaurants around the stadium. No more private lots, it most likely just be tailgating in Bills owned lots. 

 

As much as fans don't want to hear it, the Bills and NFL owners are always looking for ways to make more money.

Despite the love for the game & the increase in fans in B/lo watching our team due to doing better with all the young talent Beane & company have brought in i believe the Pegs could use this information to argue that they don't want or need a new stadium in western NY . If you read the first line in this article it's a tell all for that, seeing as attendance is lower to do the stadium experience why would any team want to spend a Billion $ on a new stadium ?

 

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/02/08/rams-and-chargers-stadium-promises-big-breakthrough-with-4k-video/

 

Then there is the thought that the NFL doesn't really & truly care about what the fans think when it comes to decision making the only thing they care about is the $$ in this article it goes as far as saying they don't care about 2 very important pieces of the games success 1 being the fans 2 being the players, with out either of which the game wouldn't be as profitable as it is ! 

 

The 3rd & 4th paragraph in this explains a lot about what the NFL is all about . Please actually read them before coming to any conclusions ...

 

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/02/07/poll-shows-strong-fan-opposition-to-17-game-season/

 

If this continues to go as it has been going only the true Bills fans that have followed the team since the 90's will be in the stadium because the younger generation being lazy as they are & being less than their tougher relatives that raised them will rather sit in a warm living room watching the game than go to a nice brand new Billion $ stadium just because there is to much effort involved !!

 

Eventually if the viewership & revenues due to these things continue to head south the NFL may have to do what the WWE is doing & even the NFL to in some respects as far as they did with MNF in changing the games to a PPV type experience to off set the loss of fans actually going to the stadium .

 

Okay flame away Bills fans, I do know one thing for sure that no matter what the out come of scheduling or TV viewership Bills fans will always have their opinions & won't stop short of hanging some one like me in the square to burn me at the stake in the social media forum so have at it let the linching begin !!

 

 

The nfl would gain a lot of revenue if they had a team loyalty streaming package where you can get your teams games on home tv and not have to do directiv.

 

tv rating has to do with quality of content and how the schedule is made.

Respect the hell out of you but "the state is broke" .  They played a accounting game last year deferring Medicaid Payments to 4/1/19 (new fiscal year) and screwed NFP's by a week cash flow (CFO of one). The have the same issue this year.

 

Following enactment of the New York State Budget for Fiscal Year 2020, the Enacted Budget Financial Plan for FY 2020 revealed a troubling action taken under the Medicaid program: the State deferred a payment, including $1.7 billion in State funds, that should have been made in March 2019.2 Instead of making the payment near the end of the month when it was due, the State delayed the payment by three days, shifting the disbursement from fiscal year 2019 into fiscal year 2020 in order to adhere to the program’s fiscal year 2019 budget and the State’s “Medicaid Global Cap.”3 This action was not a one-time event. The State deferred payments in previous years to remain within budgeted spending levels, but the magnitude of the latest occurrence is unprecedented and obscures the State’s fiscal standing and outlook.

That's totally an opinion and urban stadiums have not shown to bring an uptick in the economy

 

I would never NEVER NEVERRRR bar hop around the city pre gaming for a Bills game and lots won't. First the new ticket prices in the stadium will be crazy and you're going to be spending buckoo bucks, bar hopping around the city pre gaming would make it a ludicrously expensive day

 

And the majority of buffalonians are hard working paycheck to paycheck people. They will not spend that kind of money

 

Buffalo has something 99% of NFL franchises don't have , a college atmosphere and camaraderie... That all goes away if it's downtown

 

I live in the city, we don't need a stadium downtown

Oh I know, that’s why I prefaced it. It may be at the county level or whatever but there will absolutely be public funds involved. That’s just the way that is in 2020. The Bills will point to the countless other teams in broke states that already got it. The precedent is too strong for an exception.

Buffalo is the 88th largest city in the US.. after Glendale AZ.

 

Buffalo is punching well above it's weight merely by having an NFL team.

 

Buffalo need not keep up with the Joneses because Bflo shouldn't be in the league in the first place. Nothing wrong with having the 32nd best stadium.

 

I will repeat "Nothing wrong with having the 32nd best stadium"

The only way he does this is if the State of NY agrees to let him do whatever he wants on stadium and signs off on everything basically before he lays the first brick. I highly doubt the state will not want their pound of flesh in this deal.

I't's frustrating when people mis-quote statistics like this.   The City of Buffalo makes up only a quarter of the Buffalo metro area.   And there are 4-5 million people within a 90 minute drive of Orchard Park...

I fully expect this to be the case. I sincerely hope it's not. I hope Pegs tell Jacobs your money's not good enough considering how your company performs for us at the stadium now and particularly the arena. Everything about Delaware North is disgraceful at the arena. The quality, the employees, the management absolute everything about Delaware North at the arena is a sad joke. They should not be allowed to buy their way into a new stadium. Screw them. I am always amazed at them considering how big and successful they are doing the very thing they suck so bad at doing in Buffalo.  Just say no thanks Pegula's.

This doesn’t even take into account the 300,000 people in Soutern Ontario who live closer to the City of Buffalo proper than people in Buffalo’s outer suburbs. Not to mention, the 700,000 people a quick hour drive down the QEW in Hamilton.

 

Buffalo is as much of a regional center as it is a self-contained place.

What do you consider southern Ontario , Niagara Falls Ont? And what do you consider outer suburbs? Are you talking like Akron or East Aurora lol

 

Because I HIGHLY doubt anyone in cheektowaga or Depew or West Seneca have a longer drive time to downtown than someone from even southern Ontario..

You don’t think somebody from Fort Erie can get to downtown Buffalo quicker than somebody from Depew? They literally could walk into downtown if they wanted.
 

Southern Ontario is generally considered the Fort Erie-Niagara Falls-St Catherines metro. That includes places like Welland.

 

St Catherines takes about 30 minutes once you get on the QEW but it’s an easy drive. Wife is from there, made it hundreds of times. Niagara Falls ON is about a 20 minute drive into downtown Buffalo, and the Fort Erie area is literally the international first ring suburb that wasn’t.

 

Buffalo and its inner suburbs are considered a “20 minute city.” All those Canadian residents are within, or just outside by a negligible amount of time, that 20 minute window. Most of them have direct highway access to downtown Buffalo as well.

If this continues to go as it has been going only the true Bills fans that have followed the team since the 90's will be in the stadium because the younger generation being lazy as they are & being less than their tougher relatives that raised them will rather sit in a warm living room watching the game than go to a nice brand new Billion $ stadium just because there is to much effort involved !!

 

No, we'll be missing the games taking care of all the people who haven't saved for retirement, plus the crazy number getting Alzheimer's, all while the infrastructure crumbles around us.

 

In fort lauderdale, a sewer main has broken 7 times over the last 6 or so weeks, because the pipe is like 60 years old, made our of regular iron and the salt water, that is rising, is coroding an already super old pipe. Literal poop flowing into the rivers and the intercostal killing crazy amounts of fish and doing what the heck knows other kinds of environmental damage.

 

Basically, so instead of everyone paying a bit over time and being respectful of future generations, many chose to give us a giant finger and spend their resources having a ton of fun going to games instead of paying anything forward...you call us selfish?

 

I know it's not everyone, but you painted with a wide brush first op. If anyone wants to get mad at me for my wide brush, I encourage you to take it up with op
