Jon Bon Jovi wouldn't have moved the Buffalo Bills, was going to buy a home in Western New York and pretty much would abandon his music career, but instead he slipped into a depression partly because he failed to buy the team in 2014. Those were revelations Bon Jovi made Wednesday morning to radio host Howard Stern. The interview was the first time Bon Jovi has spoken a…

A stalk of celery dipped into malaise is what 2017 Buffalo sports tasted like. The year was dominated by upheaval for the Bills and Sabres, with the biggest stories involving people being fired or traded. Record playoff slumps persist. The Bandits were terrible. The Bisons finished 21 games out of first place. None of the Big Four basketball programs made the NCAA To…

Buffalo Bills owners Terry and Kim Pegula will fund a renovation of the suites at New Era Field this offseason, the team announced Saturday morning. "The main element of the stadium that was not touched during the 2013 renovations was our premium areas," Bills President Russ Brandon said in an article posted on the team's official website. "We created a few new premium …

The Buffalo Bills have gotten into the Thanksgiving spirit. More than half of the roster helped hand out meals for 600 families last week at the Food Bank of Western New York. Owner Kim Pegula and several dozen team employees also participated in the annual Thanksgiving Blitz. “This is really a very true showing of heart and compassion for people who are having a tough t…

As a rookie head coach for the New York Jets, while his dazed city and a nation recovered from the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, Herm Edwards would stand at the 50-yard line for "The Star-Spangled Banner" and remember his late father. Master Sgt. Herm Edwards Sr. spent 27 years in the Army, fought in World War II and the Korean War and raised his children for a whi…

Bill Wilson was prepared to leave New Era Field and never return. Kim Wilson, his wife, braced herself and then punched Bill in his left shoulder, a reminder to watch his temper if something unsavory unfolded before them. She, too, was ready to walk away from their Buffalo Bills season tickets. In the opposite corner of the stadium, Wes Wilson wished to see the exact…

Statement from Buffalo Bills owners Terry and Kim Pegula: "Several of us met tonight -- players, coaches, staff, and ownership. Our goal was to provide open dialogue and communication. We listened to one another. We believe it's the best way to work through any issue we are facing -- on and off the field. "President Trump’s remarks were divisive and disrespectful to …

NFL sideline protests had been a fading issue. A few players still kneel or raise a fist during "The Star-Spangled Banner," but the regular season began three weeks ago. Fans are watching the games, tracking their fantasy players, betting the point spreads. While Colin Kaepernick's continued unemployment after kneeling out national anthems last season remains a debate, p…

Poor Brandon Beane. Such terrible timing. Off he went to the Buffalo Bills, an NFL outpost enduring the longest playoff slump in North American professional sports. Back home, the Carolina Panthers – the team he helped construct – made a move that would have allowed him to become their general manager. Two months after Beane left his position as Panthers assistant ge…

What pills these new Buffalo general managers are. They sat in front of the cameras and droned on about infrastructure and collaboration and character and the process and my goodness ... When will one of these guys make a trade already? The Pegulas apparently have forsaken entertainment and are out to bore us. At introductory news conferences Thursday and Friday, we …

OK, fellas. You're in this together. One doesn't escape if the other one fails. One can't leave the other behind. And the owners can't wash their hands by rationalizing somebody else hired these people. Bills rookie head coach Sean McDermott and rookie GM Brandon Beane will win as a pair, lose as a pair. Terry and Kim Pegula are on the hook for both. One Bills.…

When it comes to Brandon Beane and the Bills' GM vacancy, we've described his candidacy and coveted second interview as "logical" and "as expected." But those words merely refer to his link with Bills rookie head coach Sean McDermott. They worked together with the Panthers. More important, what kind of experience does Beane have compared to the Bills' other candidate…

The conversation didn't go down like this, but imagine how logical the decision would've been had this been the case. Sean McDermott to a room filled with Bills scouts: "He played in your back yard and held his pro day in our field house. How did you not notice Khalil Mack was a phenom?" (Silence.) McDermott: "OK, how did you rank Torell Troup over Rob Gronkowski?…
