Bon Jovi Interested in Buying Buffalo Bills
A report by CBS Sports claims rock singer John Bon Jovi is serious about buying the Buffalo Bills football franchise. In fact, CBS reporter Jason La Canfora says the rocker is consumed with purchasing the team and would actually plan to run the organization.
Bon Jovi is among a group of individuals interested in purchasing the team, including Rogers Communications in Toronto, which currently works with the Bills to play a handful of games in Toronto. Observers have always felt that because a relationship was already
fostered for the games being played across the border, Rogers would be the likely buyer when the team is finally sold.
Sources say Bon Jovi actually added a Buffalo leg of a recent tour and has spent time meeting with community leaders, all in an effort to fulfill his lifelong dream of owning and operating an NFL team.
No matter what happens, any prospective buyers will have to wait for current owner Ralph Wilson to die before ever getting a chance to purchase the team. Wilson, a founding member of the original AFL and the Bills only owner, relinquished organizational control of the team earlier this year, citing health problems. Wilson is 95.
