    I'm sure it would have to. I did seating repairs at the stadium with ONE other person 4 years ago trying to go throughout the entire stadium fixing the issues and fans' complaints, and that place really is so pathetically out of date i can't believe it's a professional football stadium. The suites are not bad but the general seating is a joke, cracked cement everywhere, seating anchors being stripped out of the concrete. Man what an eyesore, plus the location is kind of questionable as well.

    There is a mentality of being a Buffalo Bills fan and ultimately a Buffalo Bills PLAYER. They are LOSERS. They put on the jersey and feel like a LOSER. They go out on the field and play like LOSERS.

    The only way that mentality could possibly be shed is if they relocate to a different city and start off fresh.

    I thought that I would miss the snow when I moved to Phoenix. I dont miss it at all. If I want to see it I drive 2 1/2 hours north to flagstaff. Go skiing for the day then come back home and enjoy a beer in the pool. Best of both worlds!

    I grew up in the land of the crab apple, Cheektowaga. I lived on crumbs thrown from the misc industry left through Bell in Tonowanda, Dad having a decent job off & on. Union watched his job title changed & called it fair on the layoff, all the while taking pieces of his paycheck away from our family. The support along the way was limited was limited to blocks of cheese & powered milk on occasion, painful way way to remember my childhood.

    Maybe some of you witnessed success in town without any future retribution, situation willing. I didn't. I never asked for variance in my life based on my time as an adult. I never apologized for my time, nor will I ever concede an individual event that changed my personal being, besides my Mom passing.

    I'm not asking for forgiveness or apologies for my past, future come what may. Every town based on levels of success & shortcomings come around to a new way of an finding their way, Buffalo didn't. We lack the inter-lake commerce that put us on the map, conceding events much greater than the sum of its parts. When the events strip most of the parts away, you find solace in only realizing those events & being able to accept them.

    Our town is lost in believing better times are near, cast being inept to make a difference along the way. You guys might find a belief that our current predictiment is fixable, it's not based on scale. Our town doesn't buy enough of the products sold on the TV, the money doesn't flow. The money you can still see is hidden outside of the realm of local reality, based on a society that beats to a comfortable drum.

    I suggest a visit to where I live now, see where the money resides. I harbor no ill will to anything Buffalo related, it's just small dream tweaking based on a main scene you live. Trust me in the fact that home is where the heart is and the money flowed away many years ago, the rest is residual of the flush.

    "2. Buffalo-Niagara Falls, NY

    Buffalo is an older, industrial city that has gone through a sort of gut-wrenching transition into the 21st Century, Sperling says. And now that its gotten over the bumps, its a great place to live.

    The Buffalo-Niagara Falls area has a growing arts scene and its affordable: The cost of living is 14.4 percent below the national average, and the average home price is $119,700, well below the national average of $171,700.

    There are more than 20 parks in Buffalo, earning it the nickname, City of Trees, and for all you sports fans, its home of the Buffalo Bills football team and Buffalo Sabres hockey team. As for Niagara Falls, the city has moved from an industrial center to a more sustainable tourism-based economy, and with the opening of the Conference Center Niagara Falls a few years ago, it now attracts more business travelers.

    The unemployment rate in the region is 8.3 percent, below the national average. Health care and education are the fastest growing industries here.
    "
    Do you really believe this, serioulsy.

    God I really, really wish this was true, the 2nd best city to relocate to but it isn't.

    Is the population increasing? Enough said.

    Look Pittsburgh turned it around, and so can Buffalo. Change needs to start with the corrupt politicians. Invest in banking (which Buffalo is starting to do now with several banks HQ'd in Buff) and medicine/health research.

    I'd safely say when the Bills get sold to the highest bidder, the proud remnants of our past will explain through excuses how they tried to make all of it happened but they couldn't succeed over outside forces of wealth attributed to simple economics. The town is gone, most of what's left is people trapped by tradition or their own selfish entitlements that they're unable to give up.

    Please land at the Buffalo airport & drive in any direction for 10 minutes, it's a time-warp circa 1972 at best. I'd blend it with a bad trailor park & an alcohol addiction, minus money outside of federal support to pay for it.

    A thread to crap on the a bills and Buffalo... How original
    I take AIDS from the patient, and feed the patient on AIDS, I give it to him as a kebab skewer to feed on, he said, presumably metaphorically. I take the disease, and I give it to him as food, and this is the top of scientific miracles.


    What can you say, it's been cured ^^^^

    Why do I get the feeling you haven't set foot in Buffalo since 1972? 10 minutes from the airport and you're in East Amherst/Clarence/Williamsville vicinity. Big, brand spanking new houses that would go for $1 million plus here on Long Island.
    Cautiously Pessimistic.

    So pathetic that you still read and post on the bills message boards. I am amazed at the amount of fed up fans willing and eager to wash their hands of the Bills and send them off to greener pastures. For some reason those same fans read all the articles, watch all of the games, are consistently on the boards, and making up mock drafts.
    The Bills have stunk for years, personally, I'm willing to trade a few more losing seasons for a healthy Jim Kelly.

    Yeah, Naples FL is known for trailor parks. Probably the best place weather wise in the US, unless it's hurricane season.
