BUILDING ON BUZZ: In Buffalo, Warner noted the "positive buzz" about the Bills has "started to pay off at the box office." The Bills have "reversed their recent slide in season-ticket sales, as the team already passed last year’s total of 37,355." But team officials have said that they "still have a long way to go to match the lofty season-ticket figures of more than 55,000" from '08 and '09. Bills CEO Russ Brandon said that the team "recently passed the 40,000 mark in season tickets." Brandon admits that the team "hoped for a little bit more of a bump so far in season-ticket numbers." He said, “With the offseason we’ve had, we were hoping we’d be a little further along with our season tickets, but overall we’re pleased with the progress we’ve made." Brandon said “it’s a realistic goal" for the team to surpass its '10 season-ticket figure of 43,925 (BUFFALO NEWS, 6/17).
