Increase capacity to 80,000, add a dome, through in a few corridor trinkets and upgrades and be done with it.

Probably part of a larger pr strategy if I had to guess. Give their network the ability to prime a story, maybe start working on some subtle change management, test out some different word combinations to see what drives engagement through some AB testing, etc.

 

Actually, they're probably reading this right now...

Time to put that season ticket jackpot to good use!!!!

 

I'm usually not a conspiracy type but considering how long the NFL has been on the Bills to upgrade their stadium, it would be much easier to ask for stadium funding after a Super Bowl win. Just saying.

That won't happen. But you know who would probably pay for that? Delaware North Corporation. The people who are in the business of $14 beers.

You know what makes Danny Wegman money?  Building stores in affluent areas

 

He's not about to just light a warehouse full of $100 bills on fire paying for a stadium that does nothing for his bottom line

Lighting a warehouse full of $100 bills on fire worked for Delaware North.

This is a good idea imo, but last I heard Wegmans was not interested in name recognition at the stadium, although a long term food and beverage contract might motivate Danny... 😁

Wasn't there a long thread from some insider a few years back about building a stadium out near Letchworth.

Liquor liability insurance serving at a stadium costs a fortune. Wegmans aint going to change their business model and insurance for a few extra bucks and a big investment in one stadium.

So we're all still a "no" on a dome?  The way we play football in 2021 and we're still a no?

 

 

Not me.  I'm all in.  Put a lid on it watch how loud we get plus I guarantee we get a Super Bowl - oh yeah you bet your tail if I'm Pegula I'm leveraging that somehow.
