R.I.P. Mr. Wilson
This is what Ralph Wilson had to say after Bud Adams passing
Last survivor of the original AFL's "Foolish Club." Beat Bud by a few months.
He was also 5 years older than Bud, so he beat Bud by a lot. Too bad these guys never got to see their teams win it all.
Jim Wyatt just tweeted that some guy named Barron Hilton is still alive, he was the founder of the LA Chargers in 1960, but sold the team shortly after.
This is going to scare the heck out of Bills fans. The team will be sold. Ralph's heirs have no interest in keeping it. And Ralph has a special tax deal with either the state or county that will not be passed to new owners. Without said tax deal it is thought the Bills cannot be profitable in Buffalo.
Does revenue sharing not make all teams more than profitable?
RIP Ralph Wilson.
Show some respect for people that brought football to the people dammit..
You still got to cover taxes. I think owners only share EBIT.
Fitting the first response post was from "TorontoTitan". Bye bye Buffalo hello Toronto or some other starved big city. Buffalo being one of the smallest markets in the league and rumors that Wilsons family wont take franchise over - we could be seeing the end of Buffalo here soon.
Yes theyre all profitable, but dont confuse revenue sharing for all teams being equal.
Some teams have bigger operating costs, so their $286M piece of the pie doesn't go as far.
Then you have naming rights, which for teams like the Cowboys could generate a ton more money than other places.
So basically goodbye Bills.
