Yeah, they were unlikely to pick the Toronto group, but you can never guarantee against crazy decisions.

So, that should be that: Pegula will become the Bills' new owner. And to show his solidarity with the team, who expected a $900m bid, he'll be buying it for 1.4 BILL-ion Oh jeez.

Eurobob sums up my feelings too:

Smaller, down on their luck towns should be a part of the NFL as well as the big metropolitan powerhouses - that's part of the appeal.
