Buffalo, NY (WBEN) Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz says it appears a one year extension on the current lease is likely betwen the Bills, the county and the state while a long term lease is being hammered out.
"I talked to Russ (Brandon) about the current situation of unlikely being able to meet the deadline to present something to the NFL owners by October," says Poloncarz. "I am pleased in principle, they agree we can do a one year extension of the current lease, so there's no gun to our heads to get it done in July. We will get a lease done."
Poloncarz says the state is a key player in the lease. "They are partners in a future long term lease, and we hope all three parties can be in a position to resolve this soon," says Poloncarz. "We have held meetings and we will continue to work to get this done. If a meeting is to be called, we're going to be at the meeting. Getting the lease done is a top priority in my administration."
I am more worried more about Ralph Wilson's health than I am about last Sunday's game. All the parties need to get together and hammer out a lease agreement that will at least attempt to keep the team here for the foreseeable future. If Mr. Wilson passes before this is done, I can't see lease negotiations not being put on hold. There should be a greater sense of urgency on the part of Erie County and New York State.
Just send your mom
Poloncarz got his brother a 50,000 plus a year job.. (of course the buffalo lib didnt report on that), have him send his mother for 75,000 a year to get it done.Erie county can not afford the Bills, they want too much money for the sad team at best that they are Is the money they earn for themselfs, worth the price that we pay, highest taxes(thank you libs)highest unemployment (thank you again over taxing libs)and the Bills want us to be taxed 100,000,000 dollars to fix up their stadium, really,wheres all the 99% now, why arent they protesting Mr. Wilson making a profit, how and why do we want to be taxed a great amount for something we wont get back for such a terrible team?
Ralph Wilson dumped a lot of money into these people, and what did he get in return from them.. a... nothing
Go bills, and take the sabres with you.
