Hidden: "Rumor/theory about the future of the Buffalo Bills franchise...": WARNING: THIS IS JUST SPECULATION! Rumor has it that possibly Ralph Wilson (owner of the Bills) wants to move the Bills to Toronto, creating the first NFL franchise in Canada, therefore establishing his legacy. Furthermore, Tom Golisano (owner of the Buffalo Sabres) wants to build a new domed stadium in Buffalo, and the NFL will grant Buffalo an expansion franchise and superbowl.

I don't know if this even qualifies as a FPP.

Reminds me of those chain letter type emails I hate so much......If you do not forward this email to 10 people in 5 minutes, your nfl franchise will move to Canada. Please forward to 10 people in the next 5 minutes, and you will recieve a new domed stadium in 3 years.

Hmm... this sounds like a situation I know all too well... I'm from Cleveland and this is exactly what happened to the Browns... I don't think the people of Buffalo, if they care about the football team and its legacy, will allow the move... if Toronto really wanted a team, and the NFL wanted one there, they would have done it already... and that is if this is a serious report...

I agree completely.

Uh, yeah. This sort of thing gets passed around in the Toronto press about once a year, and we already went through it a few months back, thanks.
