Bills Postpone Toronto Game, Will Play Full '14 Home Schedule At Ralph Wilson Stadium
Published March 5, 2014
NOBODY CIRCLES THE WAGONS...: In Buffalo, Tim Graham cites a source as saying that skipping a game in Toronto "was not an easy sell" for some Bills execs, but Brandon and coach Doug Marrone "won them over." Graham writes, "We all know outsourcing a precious home game to Toronto put the Bills at a competitive disadvantage." Marrone "valiantly tried to mask his frustrations over the Toronto series when asked about it last year, but contempt bubbled below the surface." The source said that Brandon "faced a long, uphill battle to reach an internal consensus for drastic amendments to the Toronto deal." But Brandon "got it done, and that's a good sign for Bills fans who are tired of financial decisions getting in the way of football decisions" (BUFFALO NEWS, 3/5).
