Wanting to purchase the Buffalo Bills, rock star Bon Jovi wrote a letter to The Buffalo News promising to keep the Bills in Western New York and not move them to Toronto.
Bon Jovi is the frontman of a Toronto group that wants to buy the Bills.
Bon Jovi said his goal is to keep the Bills in Buffalo and build a "state-of-the-art NFL stadium for the loyal Bills fans."
“I know how much the Bills mean to the people of this region,” Bon Jovi wrote. “So I want you to hear this from me: I’m not risking it all to let you down. IIf we are given the chance to be the next owners of the Buffalo Bills, I promise you that we will bring the same passion that you do every Sunday, every day.”
Bon Jovi faces competition for the Bills, including Sabres owner Terry Pegula and developer Donald Trump.
“My family and I are prepared to make this life-changing commitment to be part of the Bills,” Bon Jovi wrote. “This is not a hobby or an acquisition. Building a winner on and off the field will be job one and I intend to spend as much time on the ground in Buffalo as needed to accomplish that goal.” Our objective is simple: to carry on the legacy of Ralph Wilson and make the Bills successful in Buffalo."
