"The Donald" Approached To Buy Buffalo Bills

    Since the Bills' owner has recently passed, is there no one in his hierarchy who could carry on with the team, or is this strictly (silly of me to ask) for the $$$$$?

    And would he buy, does anybody think...?

    Hope there is no D-B here, but was just wondering what Buffalo-based writers and fans, in particular, think.

    Is Donald Trump telling a radio station that he has been "approached" to buy the Bills akin to Donald Trump telling reporters that he has been "approached" to run for governor (when in reality, Donald Trump wants to float the idea of him running despite polls showing him getting less support than Kim Jong Un)?

    He already ran one league into the ground, what's another football team?

    So he gave up his quest to find the real birth certificate?

    Considering Trump once sued the NFL - I think Mark Cuban has a better chance at getting a team.

    The Bills' new helmets will be helmet hair, of course. Made of titanium.

    Largely because Cuban has real money.

    Isn't Trump a notorious bankruptcy-filer and exaggerator whose true wealth is a mysterious and moving target?

    Fuck him.

    Even if, God forbid, there is truth to this, I think the chances of him getting approved are probably not great...

    He's probably worth close to $3 billion -- probably marginally more than Mark Cuban. Forbes put him at $3.9 billion on its latest list. His casinos are bankruptcy machines, but there is a difference between a business interest (and he has lots of others that do OK) and his own personal net worth.
