    Buffalo Bills Proposing To Move To Austin

    Maybe they’re negotiating. But in any negotiation, the negotiators need to be willing to act in order to have any credibility.

    As to the negotiation between the Bills and Buffalo that has begun with the Bills wanting taxpayer funding to pay the full price of a new stadium, an impasse could lead the Bills threatening to move — and potentially moving — elsewhere.

    Citing an unnamed ownership source, Seth Wickersham of ESPN.com reports that Austin is a possible destination — or threat — as one of the cities to which Bills ownership was referring when telling government negotiators that “there are other cities elsewhere that desire an NFL franchise and would pay handsomely for it.”

    San Antonio was one of the leverage destinations for the Raiders before they moved to Las Vegas, and the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans weren’t believed to be thrilled about the possibility of a third team coming to Texas. Presumably, they wouldn’t want a team in Austin, either.

    Regardless, it’s not about moving at this point. It’s about making the politicians in New York think a move could happen. Until they do, they won’t open up the public coffers.

    It's changed a lot. Got down there this past winter, there's fukkin homeless people everywhere and it's not so friendly to be honest.

    10 years ago, when the music scene was more grass roots and legit, Austin was a kick ass town. Today, idk, it's kinda in shambles IMHO.

    But that's growth...

    Austin is about as Blue as they come.

    Besides…no way Jerry Jones allows another franchise in Texas.

    The fact that you judge people strictly on their beliefs and then say it’s a shithole because of that doesn’t make you a good judge of an area. If other parts of Texas are full of people like Booya who is a fukking miserable prick who only care about himself then I’ll take the city he hates 100 out of 100 times.

    This doesn't seem like a viable place. What about Toronto? That seems like a more viable location for Da Bills.

    Buffalo is about the worst place to have a team. They will go any place they can get them to build them a stadium which is not that easy to do anymore. People are on to that con. So you have to try to bounce it off as many as possible.

    It would be great but the issue is the CFL. The NFL has made it clear that they will never go to Canada as long as the CFL is around. Toronto can easily accommodate an NFL team.

    Is this because the NFL doesn’t want the minimal competition? I believe if there were a NFL team in Canada it would thrive regardless if there were a CFL or not.

    No the NFL just doesn't want to be the guys that quote unquote killed the CFL. Like it really exists anywhere except in the prairies.

    Roger Goodell has said the lack of a NFL "caliber" stadium is the #1 reason they're not in Toronto. They don't want to kill the CFL, but they will look out for themselves first.

    The Argos are doing a good enough job of killing their franchise with lack of interest, with Montreal not too far behind. Bring the CFL to the Maritimes!
