Keep the Buffalo Bills at their loyal home of Buffalo, New York.

I came across this website, and Channel 4 news did a special on it as well saying that once they have 5,000 petition signers, they will hopefully present the Petition to the NFL.

SO please, sign the petition to keep the Bills in Buffalo - I just signed it as well, this is so vital for our community's future!

I'm confused...I hadn't heard any real plans to move them to another city. Did I miss something?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. You're hilarious. No, not a very thoughtful or considerate comment you had there. You must be the only one I or anybody else in Buffalo knows of that doesn't want them to stay here. hmphf.

No, there aren't any TRUE plans, but this petition apparently helps aid in keeping the team here after the owner, Ralph Wilson, passes on.

Only some talk of moving the team to Toronto, but that is very unlikely due to the fact that Canada doesn't want our teams, they want them to stay at their home in the states.

Thus, it is plausible and possibly likely that the Buffalo Bills move to a much larger city in the USA all due to the NFL's greed in money.

So, in conclusion, I state that this petition that is being signed opposes the team's move to another city and therefore keeping the team in their home of Buffalo, New York.

Hope this helped

oh come on. are you kidding me? I can't be the only one. football fans are so exhuasting with their drunking idiocy. The bills have been a disappointment year after year and only add to the low morale. The players get av free pass to run people down in the road and snub their nose at the law. We pay big bucks for them to be here and to top it all off their chronic season losses probably directly contribute to spousal, child and animal abuse.

Default Love em but not THAT much!!!

When you factor in the cost of an NFL franchise, the direction the league appears to be going (International at some point I believe), and the cost of the latest and greatest stadiums recently built, then the answer may be a bit more clear.

The problems we are experiencing in the financial banking industry as well as Wall St will have a dramatically negative impact on NYS, which in turn may bring back the red and green budget days here in Erie county.

That being said, who is going to pay for this $750,000,000 to $1 billion stadium? Who wants to pay $100-$200 for each ticket plus an annual seat license giving you the right to buy your tickets. Better yet, who can afford to?

I am as big a Bills booster as the nest guy. We can't afford to pass on this debt to our children and grand children, just to "talk proud" for a few months a year.

4-0 as of yesterday.
Chronic losses? Not this year.

Where are your stats for abuse? Your are off the wall with comments.

If you don't like them, don't patronize or watch them

Who cares if theu have a winning season or not, my father before he passed away last year has had season tickets since as long as I can remember. I love going to the games. Having the Bills in Buffalo keeps a lot of people's moral up. The Bills leaving Buffalo would have a huge negitive impact.

What would Buffalo be without the Bills?
