Published January 30, 2013
REALITY BITES? In Rochester, Sal Maiorana wrote, "Even though everyone knew the news was coming, emotions are stirred and people are up in arms that this is taking place. Again." Bills fans "have to get over this." The fact that the Bills have to "play one regular-season game at Rogers Centre per season is part of their reality." It would be "great if Buffalo was like Dallas or New York or even Denver and there were an endless string of mega-rich companies willing to provide the team with multiple major sources of revenue that would help the Bills fight more competitively in the big-boy world of the NFL." But that is "not the case." It almost is "a certainty that the Bills will bank more money on that game in Toronto than they would if the game was played at the Ralph" (DEMOCRATANDCHRONICLE.com, 1/29).
EVERYDAY VALUE: The Bills today announced that season-ticket prices for '13 will remain unchanged, and will be the same per-game price for the fourth-straight season. The Bills also are lowering the season-ticket cost on over 2,500 seats in the 300 level to $25 per game from $37 per game (BUFFALOBILLS.com, 1/30).
