Bon Jovi Writes a Letter to Bills Fans

Sun, 03 Aug 2014 17:16:55 +0000

Paul Zimmerman/WireImage(CANTON, Ohio) -- New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi wrote a letter to Bills fans as the location of their team moving forward is in question.

The Buffalo News published a letter by Bon Jovi on Sunday that showed his intentions to keep them in Buffalo.

"There has been a lot of conjecture, so we think it's important to clarify our intentions to the fans of the team and people of Buffalo," Bon Jovi wrote. "I know how much the Bills mean to the people of this region. So I want you to hear this from me: I'm not risking it all to let you down. If 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."

The Bills lease in Buffalo runs through the 2022 and the Bills Fan Alliance, a group of fans and business leaders still questioned Bon Jovi's letter.

"While we appreciate his sentiment, it's worth noting that nowhere in his letter does he write or directly state that he will 'not move the Bills from Buffalo,' " wrote the Alliance's directors, Matt Sabuda, Brian Cinelli and Steve Brady.

"Anything short of formal action taken on their part will be viewed as nothing more than rhetoric," the Alliance directors wrote."

Bon Jovi did not name the Toronto partners that are on his team in the letter published on Sunday.
