Terry Pegula is worth $6.7 billion.
The first thing everyone should know whenever there is a discussion Buffalo Bills Are Getting a New Stadium comes Of course, what you’re worth doesn’t mean you have to have a scrooge mcduck vault you can swim in (Though if you had that much money, why wouldn’t you?) But it does mean having the ability to pay for what you want, no matter what the cost. so yeah, terry and his allegedly bullying shithead wife Kim could easily pay for a new Bills stadium herself, and then reap the benefits guilt-free.
Will the Bills or the Chiefs win the Super Bowl? agree to disagree
Ha, as if such ghosts could ever feel guilty. They don’t think twice about taking hundreds of millions of dollars that could have improved the lives of millions if not thousands of people in public money and see how it sets them up to keep all the goodies. The public never sees it. Which is setting up in Buffalo and New York State.
Erie County, State and Bills Have an Agreement On their new stadium proposal that is set to cost $1.5 billion (for now). Erie County lawmakers now have one month to ratify it. It will take $800 million (for now) from local and state coffers to pay for it. god knows what’s new western What York could do with that amount, or how proud residents in other parts of the state feel about coughing up for a team that has nothing to do with them, but whoever authored this, doesn’t give a shit. does.
The deal is more crooked than a dog’s leg. husband of New York Governor Cathy Hochul, William, the vice president of the concessions company at the Bills’ current stadium, is likely to get concessions at the new stadium, which will be even more attractive. Needless to say that none of the Hochus can be considered an impartial arbiter of any of these.
Hochul’s weak-ass attempt to justify spending that would ultimately line his own pockets, “… how important it is to the identity of Western New York.” Pegulas would have no problem getting the Bills to recognize any territory that would give him more money than Buffalo and New York. Certainly the NFL doesn’t care a whole lot about the identity of a team and city, so much as how much cash they can make doing it. It is just playing on the emotions of the fans to justify a deal that will not benefit them. That doesn’t make the fans part of the deal or part of the ownership. This is manipulation.
These stadium deals don’t work for the areas where they take place, especially an outdoor stadium outside of Buffalo. How many events can you organize per year? 20? 30?
Another question is, where exactly are the pegulas going? Which major metropolitan area is not only screaming for an NFL team, but is more than happy to pay for a new stadium even after a pandemic and all the economic horrors? Austin? Please! London? Munich? A move to Europe isn’t as simple as playing two American cities against each other. There are more logistics involved, and even the NFLPA which is always eager to get its stomach tickled by NFL owners might actually get out of its chair to fight that one. St. Louis is in no rush to deal with the crap of another NFL owner, and San Diego may not be either.
If a fool like Stan Kroenke can build a $5 billion stadium with only private money, why can’t Pegula? New York should ask itself that question.
Certainly thousands of people in western New York will suffer the pain of losing a team. But how many people does it really affect? NFL Sunday Ticket allows fans to watch every game. How many go to each game? 40,000? 50,000? Are that many people enough to blind the state and county for decades?
One day someone will call the hoax of donkeys like Pegula. Erie County could start that Conga line this month.
way to west ham
Usually when a team, especially a Premier League side, concede a goal away through sheer stupidity, they pay extra attention to locking things down defensively and at least twice in the game. Don’t look like a fool. So let’s give it to West Ham for scoring two of the most stupid goals in the same half yesterday:
Never a good sign when your keeper is lined up perfectly 40 yards from his goal.
