    Wow. Bad week for the Bills.


    I believe that leaves Barron Hilton of the Chargers as the last original AFL owner still living, and Hilton hasn't owned the team since 1966. (He is Paris Hilton's grandfather, however).

    That would be awful if he and Kelly went in the same week...

    It would but is Kelly that bad off right now? Not trying to be a jerk at all, just wondering.

    As it is, RIP Mr. Wilson.

    You right about that. Aren't the heirs authorized to sell? Don't know that for fact, but thought I'd read it somewhere in the not-so-distant past.

    My understanding has been that his inheritors have never wanted to keep the franchise.

    I get the sense that he is, but I honestly don't know... It often seems that we hear about cancer coming back and stuff like that just before the end. Hopefully that's not the case here...

    Mark Ridley Thomas of the LA Board of Supervisors is dusting off his LA Coliseum presentation as we speak.

    There aren't any buffalos in L.A. Probably weren't any rams, either.

    I've come to the conclusion that the Raiders are going to wind up in LA by default.

    I don't know how much things have changed in recent years with the Bills, but there were always rumors about them splitting home games between Toronto and Buffalo, but that it wouldn't happen while Wilson was still alive.

    There should be some interesting tributes for tomorrow since the owner's meetings are going on right now and the bulk of them are in Orlando.
