Season of Hope: Bills Season Ticket Sales Might Save Buffalo Football
Billy at DieHardBillsFan had a post about how many season tickets the Bills have sold thus far this year: 49,000 and counting.
A few of us Dukes are part of that number, though some of us are either too broke or too far away to make it happen.
One thing’s for sure – it’s time to call shenanigans on the idea that the Buffalo area can’t support an NFL team.
49,000 ticket holders is approaching Packers territory (They have 55,000 plus a multi-year waiting list) and outside of the obvious major markets (Dallas, NYJets, NYGiants, Washington (holy crap Dan Snyder is a douche)), I can’t imagine the Bills rank poorly. I mean Jacksonville is STILL struggling to draw fans, so much so ESPN says they’re tying their hopes to David Garrard as a draw (A QB who is known for not making mistakes, not electric play, run against the Steelers nonwithstanding.)
Granted, the Bills still have about the cheapest tickets in the league, made cheaper by the game in Toronto. All things being equal though, I’ll take losing one home game a year to a regional city if it preserves the Bills in Buffalo.
Around the ‘sphere (too lingo-y? maybe.):
Beast Mode Blog : Marshawn Lynch = Gilbert Arenas? MAN CRUSH INITIATED!
ESPN: Finally some Bills coverage on the WWL. Xavier Omon should fit right in.
ZubazPants: I normally hate all things Florida, but the Marlins are fun as hell.
BfloBlog: Campbell for Big Bear and another first rounder? The spot we got might be cursed. Crap.
KSK: Civil Unions aren’t enough for Steely McBeam.
