Ralph Wilson has got a lot of nerve asking "Where are the fans?" After the Buffalo Bills' loss to the New York Jets, Wilson made it unnecessarily clear that anything less than $11 million in luxury/club-seat sales would mean a move for the Bills. Before this remark, sales were impressive. Afterward, seat sales dropped.
The 12th man is an important component of the Bills. For Wilson to hold the team hostage until the fans come up with the cash goes a long way toward dampening our spirit. Obviously, even the occasional ticket-buyer for the regular season has felt threatened. A good season and exciting games will not overcome this. What the fans need is for Wilson to give a little, too. Without compromise, what does he expect?
