The L.A. Bills.

Yea, doesn’t sound right to me either.

Donn Esmonde of the Buffalo News is reporting that when the Buffalo Bills stadium lease is up in 2022, the Bill are likely to be moved to a large market city.

“Long term, it’s fair to say the team is at risk of being moved,” said Ted Fay, a sports management professor at SUNY Cortland. “Buffalo doesn’t make common sense as a business model.”

The notion was seconded by David Carter, a sports business professor at USC and consultant for several NFL-seeking cities and a prospective NFL owner in Southern California.

“Ultimately, I think the money does talk,” Carter told me by phone Friday. “You have such a small corporate presence in the region. If you are not in a market that generates added revenue (for an owner), you’re really hamstrung. So I think greener pastures will be explored.”

    Until a billion dollar state of the art stadium is built, you will never see a NFL team move to Los Angeles. Moving to Toronto is more likely for the Bills.
