A couple of weeks ago, in his own colorful way, Cole Beasley wanted to set the record straight. When a Twitter user suggest that Beasley might be “starting to realize Buffalo isn’t quite Dallas,” the Bills’ new wide receiver shot down that idea.

DANA POINT, Calif. – The topic of sports and betting was long a taboo for team owners and top executives. Not anymore. Today, with the NFL and other leagues moving into Las Vegas, and with more states legalizing sports gambling, it’s a necessary discussion — and Kim Pegula is participating in it. The co-owner and president of the Buffalo Bills and Sabres was here…

This latest debacle of a Buffalo Sabres season doesn't rest solely on the shoulders of coach Phil Housley. Or General Manager Jason Botterill. It's not the fault of Vladimir Sobotka or Marco Scandella or Rasmus Ristolainen either, no matter how many times fans want to take those three names in vain. Like the other derailed campaigns of the recent past, it starts at the …

When Terry and Kim Pegula speak, Buffalo stops to listen. That's true of everybody from fans of the professional sports teams they own to the people with a stake in the future of Western New York.

After too many years of losing and drudgery, the Buffalo sports scene was marked by two overriding themes in 2018. One was hope. Strangely enough, the other was historic trips to Dallas, a place that broke the city's collective hearts three major times during the 1990s. Cynics might chuckle on the first point. The Bills and Sabres, in particular, have had nothing to …

A jam-packed Bills Mailbag this week, so without further ado ... Rick McGuire asks: It looks like the Jets will have about $106 million and the Bills $92 million available for free agency in 2019. I know money talks, but could you see players signing with Buffalo over New York for less because of the direction the team is headed, or will the “Big Apple” city life be mor…

A tradition in many homes across this awesome region and great land at this time of year is to go around the table and give thanks for all the things that are dear to one’s heart. So here, in the themes of the bountiful meal we are all about to engorge on Thanksgiving, are some thanks of mine for our local sports teams and their fans.  Thanks for the entrée – the main d…

The middle of an NFL season isn’t usually a time for reflection. Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, however, has gone against conventional wisdom. He has reflected plenty of the disastrous first six quarters turned in by his defense. “I know exactly what we would do different,” Frazier said Monday. “That’s for another day. … In my mind, I felt like I…

A Sabres franchise long mired in the depths of the National Hockey League standings, finishing in last place in three of the last five seasons, had nowhere to go but up. And an offseason overhaul of the roster is inspiring optimism that Buffalo is poised to finally resurface as a playoff contender. Thirty-seven percent of those who voted in an informal Buffalo News poll…

Sean McDermott gets a little uneasy when asked about those notebooks he has been filling, season after season, for most of his NFL coaching life. “People are going to think I’m anal,” he said with a sheepish grin. Still, no conversation about the start of McDermott’s second year as a head coach is complete without bringing up the notebooks. As with McDermott, himself, t…
