    Ralph Wilson Article

    When looking for a place to establish a team, Buffalo Bills founder/owner's first choice as a city was Miami. Rejected. :lol: Must suck as a Bills fan to know that your founder's first choice was the home of your division rival.

    I don't want to hear any more crap from Bills fans about how Fin fans turn on our organization.

    I've read that article before and it's a good article. The fans are just fans. In all cities they will b*tch when their team is losing.

    I'm glad the NFL has owners like Ralph Wilson still. Just as I loathe owners like Daniel Snyder and Jerry Jones in the league. Their is enough money to be made without diminishing the popularity of the sport.

    A couple of points about money grubbing in the NFL.....

    When I was a kid I could name every stadium that all 28 teams played. Now?

    When I was a kid pay-per-view was not even a thought.

    When I was a kid football cards were found on the candy aisle (bubble gum inside).

    When I was a kid change didn't happen every year. I knew my favorite players would be back in uniform.

    When I was a kid coaching consisted of names like Saban, Shula, Landry, Starr, Madden, Eubank, Knoll, Levy, Ditka, Gillman, Allen, Reeves, Parcells, Gregg, Vermeill, Flores, Grant, Gibbs, and Walsh. No owner was looking for the next "rock star" of a coach. These men were football giants. Every one of them is more qualified than half of the league coaches today.

    It's no wonder that the aforementioned bastard owners (Jones and Snyder) are relying on that coaching era to win and sell tickets. Who originally hired Parcells and Gibbs? Answer: Jack Kent Cooke the Redskins owner since 1978 and a the Mara family who it would seem has owned a team since the beginning of time.

    Yes I'm happy Ralph Wilson has been an owner. He's better than the likes that have come around today and what they've done for the game $

    I realize that, it's just that some of the Bills fan on this forum will be the last to admit it.
    I agree with you 100%. Some of the things Snyder does are just plain unbelievable (i.e. allowing Stephen Davis to leave). <~~~ among other things.
