Default Trump Will be Bidding for Bills

Could change the culture.

Trump plans to make a run at buying the Bills
Posted by Mike Florio on April 14, 2014, 8:58 PM EDT


When Donald Trump first disclosed his interest in the Bills, he said he’d been approached about investing. Now, he says he wants to take over.

Trump told Tim Graham of the Buffalo News that the one-time owner of the USFL’s New Jersey Generals intends to make a run at buying the Bills.

“I’m going to give it a heavy shot,” Trump said. “I would love to do it, and if I can do it I’m keeping it in Buffalo.”

Of course, Trump wouldn’t be doing that as a favor to the people of Buffalo, but for his own convenience.

“I live in New York, and it’s easier for me to go to Buffalo than any other place,” Trump said. “Where am I going to move it, some place on the other side of the country, where I have to travel for five hours?”

Regardless of the motivation, the end result of a Trump purchase of the Bills would be that they would remain the Buffalo Bills.

Trump apparently can afford to buy the team. Per Graham, Forbes estimates that Trump is worth $3.9 billion. Graham reports that but “sources close to [Trump] claim he’s worth almost three times that.”

It sounds like the source close to Trump is Trump himself, because that sounds like something Trump would say. Whether it’s $3.9 billion or $11.7 billion, he can afford it. The real question is whether he can get enough votes to approve his entry into one of the most exclusive clubs in the world.

I just don't know if I can get used to calling them by their new name.....the Trump Bills. Funny, Trump's bills almost was the end of him at one time.

I wouldn't want Trump owning my local NFL team. It'll soon become as much about him as it will the team. That's OK with the head coach, but not the owner.

Agree.

Also, I'm not sure if Trump has the cash. Sure, he's rich, but, my understanding is that a lot of his money is leveraged and tied up in loans and real estate.

NFL owners tend to have a good billion dollars or so in cash on hand. Not sure if Trump has that.

Maybe I'm wrong.

Donald Trump is one of the biggest publicity "prostitutes" going, and I think that's all that this is about - an easy way to get attention.

I agree that he likely isn't financially able to pull this off, but I don't think that's his true goal anyway. To put it mildly, I'll be very surprised if he's the next owner of the Bills.

If I was a Bills fan, I'd be happy with any potential owner that promised to keep the team in Buffalo.

Trump has very deep pockets and I have no doubt would want to win. While he'd certainly be very visible, that's not necessarily a bad thing. His willingness to spend his money to build a winning roster could attract some talent.

Will they get rid of the Buffalo on their helments and replace it with a big "T", or will they put a big blondish hairpiece on it to look like a Davy Crockett Coon skin cap kinda thing?

He'll figure out soon enough that there better places he can make big bucks with the Bills. I wouldn't be rushing out to buy any PSLs if I were a Bills fan.

It would be interesting to have Trump and Jerry go at each other in pregame interviews.........just like like the WWE.

Agreed. And from what I think I know about Trump and how his mind works I have just the place he'll want to move.

New York City. No, I'm not drinking, NYC. He'll sell the move as the only REAL New York team left, and now it's in the Big Apple. The same city that was "forsaken" by the other two teams. The team will be in his back yard with a new stadium (of course). The team will be feeding on the NY population with the NY name as a hook New Yorker's won't refuse. Three teams right in there together but only one "New York" team. The publicity created by the audacity would keep Trump happy for...well.....days even...lol.

Hell, he'd probably even go after the Jets and Giants to stop using the New York name...lol.

Before you laugh, just remember where you heard it first.

I don't think NFL owners will let Trump become an owner because he will do whatever it takes to win and that goes against the grain of most NFL owners.

Well, the potential to move exists with any new ownership group. Buffalo is no longer an economically viable market. The city has seen better days, and those days were decades ago.

At least Trump is "saying" that he'd want to keep the Bills in Buffalo. If anyone could afford to absorb the financial burden of such a commitment, it is a guy like Trump.

John Mara/Kraft run the NFL, so for the reasons stated above, it's doubtful that Trump will ever be allowed to own a NFL team.

Interesting article. I won't dispute Trump's influence in ultimately dooming the USFL. However, it should also be remembered that the league was already in trouble when he came along, as teams were paying far more for players than they could afford.

Trump advocated a gamble that failed, but the league was doomed because folks just were not interested enough in spring football to make it an economically sustainable model. Instead of trying to be a league that could be a gap between college and NFL, they went head-to-head in competing for players like the AFL did in the 1960's. But, but the 1980's the NFL was much larger, more powerful, and had a lot deeper pockets than they did in the '60's.
