    Raiders and Bills Relocation?

    Do you guys see the Raiders and Bills relocating? I see it for the Bills and Raiders. The Bills moving for Toronto fits right into the NFL's plans of expanding its game beyond the US borders. The Raiders would do better in LA if they returned there. Toronto and LA are huge markets waiting to host NFL teams. I really hope the Bills leave West NY.

    Bills won't move. Whoever buys them is going to be forced to sign a clause for about 25 years to not move them.

    And I said it in the Raiders to SA thread:
    I think if the Chargers get LA before the Raiders, the Raiders move to Portland. I think that works out best for the Raiders and the NFL.

    Buffalo should be the Bills home yet I agree about Toronto. I wonder if the CFL would try to stop it b/c once one CFL city goes NFL it could open the door for others.

    Raiders - I guess L.A. makes the most sense but they need a new stadium. Speaking of new stadiums, the penalties from the locals might be too steep but Ny still doesn't have a stadium. The Raiders in Manhattan would be very interesting. The Giants would be furious while the Jets would be terrified.

    Bills certainly not. Raiders slim chance of moving, possibly to SA or going to LA.

    Why would the NFL allow it if it conflicts with its best corporate interests? A goodwill gesture to a long time Bills franchise?

    I read that the guy with the best chance of buying the Bills will firmly keep them in Buffalo. In second place was the group which would move them to Toronto.

    A potential Raiders move relies solely on where they're going to get a stadium. I actually think it's likely that they'll move because Oakland is broke. If the Raiders move then I think the A's will get a stadium though.

    Move the Jags to LA and keep every other team where they are at.

    LA fans absolutely HATE the chargers. There are far more Raiders fans in LA than charger fans. Actually, there are far more raiders fans in San Diego than there are chargers fans in San Diego. I lived in San Diego for 6 years and I'm from la and live here now.

    Bills aren't going anywhere. LA will get a team eventually

    It got rejected because there weren't assurance clauses stating that the team wouldn't be relocated.

    They're allowed to re-submit though, even though Pegula is the clear front runner.

    I thought there were reports coming out today that they rejected his bid because it was "competitively low" as far as money went. I think I was reading it on PFT.

    That too, but even if he was the high bidder it would have been rejected.

    A team going to SA would hurt Jerry Jones.
