Chris Drury will likely be a general manager someday. It won’t be in the coming days. The Sabres asked the New York Rangers for permission to interview their assistant GM, but Drury and the Rangers decided it’s not yet time for the move, Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reported. Drury is in his first season as New York’s assistant GM after serving as director of p…

Buffalo Bandits general manager Steve Dietrich and the team's fans felt sick to their stomachs when watching last week's meltdown against the Georgia Swarm. The difference between them was that the fans could leave early and try to forget about it. Dietrich had to stay and watch all 60 dispiriting minutes. "To be honest, I had a feeling of utter embarrassment," Dietr…

The Top 10 takeaways from bouncing between ESPN and The NFL Network watching the NFL Draft Thursday night: 1) ESPN analyst Louis Riddick and NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock, who are the experts most worth listening to, applauded the Buffalo Bills choice of LSU cornerback Tre' Davious White with the 27th pick of the draft. Riddick, who is the brother of former Bill Ro…

The Buffalo Bills checked off one of their biggest needs Thursday night with the selection of cornerback Tre'Davious White in the first round of the NFL Draft. But the list remains long heading into Day Two. The Bills would love to come out of this year's draft with a starting right tackle, No. 2 receiver and weak-side linebacker. With three picks Friday, those posit…

Head Coach Sean McDermott Opening Statement Obviously, we went ahead and traded the first round pick – the tenth pick overall. I really felt like the value that we were looking at – very rarely can you do that when you can cash that into a first round pick in 2018 and then add a third round on top of that. [It was a] very unique situation for us. Felt good about …

Here are my three thoughts on what the Buffalo Bills did in the first round of the NFL Draft Thursday night: 1. Making the trade with the Kansas City Chiefs to move down from 10th overall to 27th was smart. Outside of Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett being the No. 1 pick to the Cleveland Browns, there was very little consensus on how the draft would play …

1. He contributed early in a loaded LSU secondary. A top-five prospect nationally out of Shreveport, La., White arrived at LSU in 2013 and stepped into the starting lineup by Week Three. He made the Southeastern Conference All-Freshman team with 55 tackles, two interceptions and seven passes defensed. By the time he was a senior in 2016, he was named a Walter Camp first-te…

Here's a snap analysis of the first night of the NFL draft: The Bills moved down in the first round, and Doug Whaley moved closer to the door. If there was any doubt that a new sheriff was in charge, it was erased at around 9:15 p.m., when the Bills swapped the 10th pick of the draft to the Chiefs. In return, they got Kansas City's first- and third-rounders in this year…

As long as the Cleveland Browns are in the NFL, and they should be thankful there's no relegation system, Buffalo Bills fans have a reason to feel superior. Of the world's pathetic sports organizations, the Browns are among the most absolutely pitiful. Since they were resuscitated in 1999, they've had 15 seasons with six or fewer victories. The Browns won a single ga…

Laska goal lifts Timon Bishop Timon-St. Jude needed a win. The fact the Tigers secured one against a nemesis from last year should be something to build on as the season progresses for coach Brian McNulty’s crew. Tom Laska’s overtime goal lifted Timon to a 15-14 triumph over Canisius in Monsignor Martin High School Association boys lacrosse. Laska’s goal came d…

The Buffalo Bills addressed arguably their most pressing need by selecting LSU cornerback Tre'Davious White with their first-round pick in the NFL Draft Thursday night. The Bills, who lost top cornerback Stephon Gilmore to the New England Patriots in free agency, grabbed White with the 27th overall choice, which they acquired earlier in the night in a trade with th…
