I recently attended the Training Camp Outing/Dinner with the Monday Morning Quarterback Club. One of the guest speakers was none other than the bean-counter from Detroit, Jeff Littman. He painted a very bright picture of the Bills' future here in Buffalo.
He spoke of how the Bills have an innovative marketing plan to sell seats (I guess they are waiting until after the home opener to unveil it) and that the last thing the team wants to do is segregate the rich from the poor.
I would have loved to ask him how the personal seat license doesn't segregate the rich from the poor. There is no benefit to me having been a season ticket-holder for 35 years except to know where I am sitting every week and I get the "privilege" to pay nearly $1,000 next year just for the right to buy tickets for that same seat. Well, we aren't paying it and will use our seniority to go and bump somebody out of their seats, which I am sure will make them very happy.
The Bills seem to be heading in the right direction on the field with some outstanding offseason acquisitions. Now, how about looking up into the stands and doing the right thing for some of us people who sat through back-to-back 2-14 seasons, watched some bad times in bad weather and have always supported this team?
