Okay, so I keep getting twitter updates about the Bills moving to LA. I read one article on ESPN and they said there are like 7 teams. They mentioned the Bills, but also said the NFL would rather keep the team in western NY because they can expand into Canada without actually getting a legit team there. But the stadium lease is up in 2012 or something. Mr. Wilson, my favoritest old dude eva said he won't sell it, and when he dies, it'll go to the highest bidder.
My question is this: All us non-Buffalo fans aside, do yall even WANT the Bills in Buffalo?
First of all, the team is not going to stay here. Don't believe what the NFL tries to say, the market is just too small and the league is probably looking to save itself a fiasco like the hissy Cleveland threw when the Browns left, or Baltimore when the Colts hightailed it to Indianapolis.
Second, Canada does NOT want our football. They have a league which was around for literally decades before the NFL was even thought of, our form is based in the rules THEY invented, and I guess they're pretty resentful of the fact that we watered it down to make it easier to play. There is one reason and one reason only why the people of Toronto go to the Bills games that are played there - to boo the team and cheer for their opponent.
Yes, people still want the Bills here. In fact, a large faction of the people in Buffalo totally refuse to believe they're even going to leave at all. This is not a city known for having any common sense.

If you had to vote in a Republican primary, who would you vote for?
Ron Paul. He's the only candidate who truly wants to practice the Republican ideals of small government, low taxes, a non-interventionist foreign policy, and individual freedom. I personally think he places way too much faith in state governments to provide more personal liberty in cases where federal intervention is necessary to keep intrusive state governments from dictating individual morality, but he's still a very strong candidate and a man of principle.
If we could get Paul running against Dennis Kucinich, in fact, that would be a potential no-lose election.
I'm sorry if my insensitivity toward your beliefs offends you. But guess what - your religious wars, jihads, crusades, inquisitions, censoring of free speech, brainwashing of children, murdering of albinos, forcing girls into underage marriages, female genital mutilation, stoning, pederasty, homophobia, and rejection of science and reason offend ME. So I guess we're even.
