    That situation would rectify itself in pretty short order.

    Why are we still discussing this? It's not happening. We may as well discuss the Bills chances in this year's Super Bowl.
    Gailey's history. He just doesn't know it yet.

    There's a better chance of the Bills getting a new stadium than there is that the Bills ever go to a Super Bowl again so why not?

    Pearl st is very close....

    If this was to happen I am sure they would extend the rail system across the canal

    then you could get to all the bars via rail including Chippewa

    Yeah we'll most Bills fans aren't that sane. If we were, we probably wouldn't be Bills fans.

    there is supposedly a hotel connected to this, isn't that someone who buys a piece of it.

    the package as is is a good deal for the city of buffalo.
    1. you keep the bills
    2. put build a convention center
    3. you put hotel space.

    YOu need support from the NFL to maybe host a Draft at the new spot and showcase it a little.
    you would see bars and restaurants come around there.

    It's a real revitalization effort.

    if tailgating is your biggest issue, then we deserve to lose this team. We will find ways to do it and some people will actually meet up in restaurants and bars before the game preserving that spirit and helping the local economy.

    It's too much of a good thing to happen to the area. too bad we didn't have a failing company in buffalo during 2008 or we could have raided the coffers like all the other companies and gotten $1.4BN when $700BN was given out.

    This idea is much more realistic now. There is a task force being put together to get plans for a new stadium.
