Call their bluff and tell them to f off. There should be no negotiation in the NFL these guys make billions if they want  new stadium etc then lay out the cash and build it, you know the old fash

I don’t like seeing any fan base lose their team but those maniacs in Buffalo might burn down that inbred city if this was actually to happen 

"So, here's the deal tiny, Middle class Blue Collar,  Rust Belt City....all of your industry shut down, the economy has been a locked down, stagnant mess, many of you are living on soon to expire Fede

I agree and don’t see any the city of Buffalo coming with the funds to pay for a new stadium. I don’t think the economy in Buffalo is exactly booming right now that they can shell out $5b on a new stadium

That’s terrible. Went to school upstate in the 80’s. Went  to Buffalo games drunk AF with Jets hat/ shirt on,  Had beer thrown at me, verbally abused and couple times physically threatened. Those Western NY yahoo’s love their team as much as anyone. That sucks, hopefully doesn’t happen. If they move them, put them in Canada, might take half  the fan base a decade to get a passport but least they would have a fighting chance. 

Did you throw your hot dog back at them? I guess you can only retaliate so far within reason. 🤷🏻

If Bills leave, the city goes from inbred to being season 12 of The Walking Dead 💀 

More like The Purge.

Me? No. My mom raised me better than that. At least she tried to.

That would suck. I'm no Bills fan, but I was living in MD when the Colts deserted in the middle of the night - literally - and left for Indianapolis. It hurt locals bad. My friends from Baltimore and the surrounding areas have never forgotten. Buffalo needs the Bills, but the Bills and the NFL should pay their fair share - none of this city held hostage crap.

If this were to happen maybe they’d move Baltimore to AFC East in a realignment 

All those years of being in the same division with the Baltimore Colts. Bert Jones.  I think there is no chance in hell that the ravens are removed from the Steelers and the Browns.  None.

That town has literally nothing going for it besides their Bills.

I think they storm city hall before it happens. So, in the sense of keeping the peace I dont see it happening. 

Plus Austin? Cool city. Football town ready for a new team? Hardly

Who would they put in the East… Colts? Cincy?

No way. We just got an MLS team. I can’t see how we can support a NFL team though. I guess the thought is the Austin Metro and San Antonio Metro combined can support an NFL team. It took a while for city council to approve an MLS team. I doubt they approve an NFL team. We can drive 3hrs to Dallas or Houston for a game without the headaches.

But Austin mainly has minor league teams.

They put an NFL team in Jacksonville so anythings possible. Although Jacksonville has proven to be a disaster. 5-8 years till we have the London Jaguars

I would laugh at them. Good luck breaking into Texas with a bunch of Yankees lol

 

IDK

Just looked at the Bills 2020 roster.  36 out of 53 players are from southern, or SW schools.

Pretty typical of most of the NFL

We went through this here in Edmonton with the hockey team.  The owner started making feints about moving the team and veiled threats and the city just caved in and essentially built him a new hockey rink.  Was disgusting to me.

I live in Austin, it is NOT a destination for an NFL franchise. 

Let them know you live there.  The thought of having you as a fan will probably change their mind.  :)

They brought their fight to Albany, not Buffalo...which means they are asking the state of NY to fund this.

I disagree.  Probably not in Austin proper but between San Antonio and Austin.  Build a stadium in San Marcos.  At least, that was the area suggested when the Raiders were looking to move from Oakland.  I doubt Jerry Jones would let an established team come here though.

Agreed. In another life I was a music major at SUNY Fredonia.  Buffalo is as passionate a fanbase as there is.   the TAX saving would be in the tens of millions for the players, owners etc.

Wow, **** them.

Dude…Austin Texas is BOOMING.
