Opinion what's the percentage chance that this team is going wrong in Europe and what's your percent it yet put a number. I'm just like everybody else who's called in your show today. Everybody's got their own opinion and -- -- spots and nobody really knows one way or the other. I know that it's going to be tough for someone move the team but I also know that they want this team in Canada. I also know that the NFL has big dreams of expansion that's why they had became the Toronto -- here. They also want expanding Europe that's what it -- game in England every year. I know there are a lot of Barney at the trial and and that's scares me and the they're -- have a relationship up there with the NFL get a dollar -- polls injury. There's already people. Jerry Jones and the order of the giants backing Bon Jovi. So probably people there around say it'll never happen. You might be right -- There's a chance that it could. That are out and do nothing about that let. Stop that chance so let's put a roadblock to try that chance and let's make that chances if -- we can for most people. And then we can sit back right now and heparin now you know there's no -- to go on on what. Until then we're gonna stand up -- -- do whatever we can but it is something bigger piece of small. It. Well again but before there -- traffic break pitted before we -- want to stick around for the question from the from the audience. What's the you -- for you're opposition.

Of ethnic and a north talking about what that. All I think that the -- that residual impact of winning ever and it -- team is incredible I don't think we've really even seen the tip of the iceberg and imagine if we are Super Bowl champ. -- -- I gotta tell you the Charles our young liner. It Charles reducing the economic impact right there right around the stadium what's gonna happen if that stadium -- Are upset because -- around here I mean I can you know just like what he's talking about actually the difference between a winning season in a losing season. Talk about a half filled parking lot perhaps the old stadium compared to a sellout every week. And you know that transforms into beer salesman and gasoline so -- salute settles then it's all a trickle down. -- like listen we're gonna have to go to a break here Charles I'm I'm gonna ask you to stick around -- the break I got a couple more questions with.

And this guy's got a lot of followers on Twitter I mean he's got if you ruined his. His iTunes podcast -- interest. The chicken and out and it's. Well legs -- shot up this bill -- and screw on Twitter we've got. Charles Levine from twelve meant -- on the line you're charged with us. Good good I'm glad you're right no your your your done work right that we catch up their drive your truck. -- -- And in my driveway actually having -- also talking to you from my car. -- cute too much -- I just wanna tell yeah I counted. In kind of a back of the envelope effort 340. -- New stories. About which you guys are -- 304. Were talking and out in. In the the former Soviet Union in -- a relic. I mean there is some pretty wild coverage of and I all kinds of come grows out of this. Banning Bon Jovi for how do you account for this. -- -- -- Story about how we now these businesses in the city to rally around that span Bon Jovi thing and we've actually taken it as far as Sports Illustrated time magazine. New York Post Washington Post we've been covered coast to coast. Both countries United States and Canada and we've got stories and papers and New Zealand the United Kingdom and even Russia. And my interviews and then translated into French. So very interesting story there reporting and covering and it's it's just not dying you know it's now one wave of media it's like. It'll go for a week and I -- -- that offer few days and then he people on the animals start up again for another week can we got amazing coverage on us. But you know I had you in the studio tournament last time this year couple medium and there's an opera efforts. You. -- actually managed to do all of this with out being insulting without you know calling. Bon Jovi the names that just just roll of the lips so easily for those of us who actually have taste in music. How your your keep a level head here and I notice on Twitter -- there's some people trying to drag -- to beat him up a bit more but. You actually said in a story that if something about Santa what did you say about -- Well we have to do this and professional way and we're -- out and insult anybody ever heard anybody. I'm for a professional as far as this campaign goes and when I'm out the vote until they always say it's nothing personal. It doesn't matter even if there was that a lot in common they're both Florida -- built -- weight must move not to the North Pole. -- -- So it's not the actual person it's the act of what's being tried -- accomplished here against us. So. We're not bashing them we're not common names others states well maybe but that's -- -- -- -- -- you know we're trying to be rational about the. Well I'm I've got to believe that that this thing's gonna drag on for a while Maurer. In a -- is talking earlier about how I think this may drag in August the most of the people in the notes should conclude in July -- It -- these things can some can happen in slow things down. What if the you know what he has to do if it goes into the pre season and -- and of this thing hasn't been decided. You got him at some events around the stadium in ago. Yeah -- at -- as far as we can. We're gonna have some parties around statements until gates. We're gonna attempt and it's looking pretty good bit. Well and got down to the policy and -- can and we're gonna set up that. In signatures down there and out some posters and T shirts and I'll let fans know we're down there was some sport the polls. And we're gonna carry that startled each and and not gonna end with a sell the team we've made it successful fan group here and we're gonna. Continued sent Groupon and Michael's implant or merger with my other organization and return it until. A group that would take disadvantaged children from poor families too old games not -- spill. Don't have an opportunity -- game that they might not get any other way. In other little bitter rivalry between these and groups of I love these guys the bills -- I'm real. I respect those guys over bills fanatics and you know sometimes as little bitter rivalry between the UCC to be able walk between those raindrops. Her personal rivalry everybody wants say they've got that stand group. Aren't these -- groups that an awesome I wouldn't get 101000 signatures and we won't get 40000 -- and no I don't without -- -- A lot of legwork. For the years I mean. Lot of a lot of this of these guys kind of teed it up for -- and 101000. All the and the first thing is to go to our web site well that's under dot -- science -- its name on -- not supporting the bill terrible -- Join our FaceBook group we FaceBook group called twelve and under and I -- these two other groups called. Bill -- he would die hard on FaceBook in the other -- -- -- fanatics on export. Mean they're all these stories the ball. Football in awful -- float around on all these different new resources that these guys take all of these news -- important one spot for you don't have to jump ball in the united all their right there -- -- Interact and debate with these guys and -- market -- and those medics FaceBook. Thank you. Well listen Charles Lee thank you very much for calm and under your busy guy and Eric and it continued. Good luck on your efforts -- as this thing. Comes to a close and as we find out who these owner of the owner might be in -- and the different complications -- I'll be reaching back out to you again. Ladies donuts Charlie Charles -- of twelve men and that's twelve men -- dot com. -- -- -- Thanks wanna listen I'll tell you we've been we've been talk about the politics of the bills. There are a lot of people like I called up trying to get other people to get on the show some politicians. And people are capable of a nervous I think. Justifiably so. They're getting nervous because they don't wanna say something that they think might discourage a potential. Buyers group. I don't think it's very interesting is I think it's really true we've seen some of the commentary from this morning's WB yen of the morning news. Bob there is probably going to be. A -- a very serious bitter that we don't even know yet we never even heard of them. I mean I don't forget that every single one of these NFL owners have billionaire buddies. Who they say you know what next time there's that team up and it Coptic. Every single one of these owners have those bodies and they entertain them in their suites. And you know spend their good hard earned money. With -- Tom -- -- whatever and these guys they like these men and women who come from that kind of upper Echelon of air that you're I don't agree. So we're gonna find out that there's going to be a power of an NFL owner of the it's been saved his money and put it together. And and we're not even know who they are mean I've read there's going to be five groups that -- is going to be 600 there's going to be four -- one thing's for certain. We need. More than anything else. An ownership group that is 120. 1000000% committed off now went on Donald Trump first got into this was with talking about. His interest. Army he said right up front if I bought the bills that would keep them in buffalo. -- we've heard the same thing from mr. Golisano. There's little mystery surrounding. Mr. gore. We've heard that he media interest in fact we heard that he had a a big sale of some of his fracking leases. Here in New York State where he netted one point seven plus billion dollars. Says he's suddenly illiquid as well. So he's got -- he he could find that money and his couch cushions right now after one month bills. So they are good amount of people good number of potential groups who may actually -- -- our interest -- -- bills keep an -- on the one problem I see you know John part. Toronto sun doesn't agree other people IC on line and in of social media groups think there's just no possible way of going from. But the people the buyers group and -- -- was serious -- very -- and the air in there and I think you're gonna see it for on orbit. I'm not sure. If they're gonna get it. I mean obviously there's some things that stopped them some impediments roadblocks. Team and awfully expensive thing but -- and don't forget this. That's huge market. Huge. Just absolutely huge dwarfs. Buffalo it dwarfs buffalo -- And if they would spend. The amount of -- -- necessary to win the team and bring it appears in as a prop -- prices are gonna spend more than a buffalo report. Don't forget that. So we'll be right back after these messages here on news radio 930 WEB. There. Okay. And we're back. -- -- -- -- -- WB CNN. 648 PM only if you Obama it's gonna do -- -- just a few more minutes and have Tom back tomorrow. He has deserved day off. Here. 12 minutes 7 o'clock -- we aggregate data they talk about the Buffalo Bills in the politics on that again I'm gonna give you my prediction. The Buffalo Bills stadium will be announced. By Governor Cuomo in October and October surprise. End whatever hundreds of millions of dollars that we wrapped up in taxpayer dollars -- wrapped up in the in the project will be part of the Buffalo Bill. And I may be wrong but I'm will have bad. You know friendly bet that's what's gonna happen because if I were in charge of that campaign that's what I would do and by the way I've thought about eighteen months ago like they. Absolutely there's no question that. And if you think that Governor Cuomo is not gonna get and not gonna put the Buffalo Bills right in the middle of his reelection campaign. I've got a bridge in Brooklyn. -- Absolutely. He's gonna bring the Buffalo Bills selection because here's the problem and and I mentioned this. In the article. On city and state and wide dot com. We talked to met Hamilton brighter than at the opening of this -- From. The problem that we have it in the governor's races that. Cuomo can do many different things from where he's at and not seem like he's politicizing the Buffalo Bills because he's got a role. In deciding what the stadium's going to be in the meet up with a big. So he can actually play some cards in in the middle of the election and make it sound like it's not about the election but he's going to be pleasing a lot of people. Here in Western -- who were concerned the reviews and it felt meanwhile. Meanwhile. The Republican nominee rob S three knew who by the way I think -- find a much better -- for. There are a lot of things he would do one right out -- like eight days ago that would make things better -- state but he actually can't step forward. If he does he has to do it very very carefully very careful. Because of the of the fans of the Buffalo Bills don't wanna see any kind of politicizing. The team either they don't wanna see people talking about it as an election issue making accusations against each other saying you're doing it right. In effect if that happens every you know both sides of that debate -- The fans. But because the Buffalo Bills -- it is nothing. That the Buffalo Bills and likewise the politics let's say maybe they like -- England patriots. But. If you start politicizing this or even if you just say something with perceived as politicizing. -- trouble that's right into -- can do a lot of things he has a rule rob mastery of the much better gubernatorial candidate. Can't he has been more careful because he doesn't happen official. You watch it you know you watch when asked was here. And he criticized the Buffalo Bill to -- nice up and the buffalo billion deserves criticism. -- corporate welfare it's it's a tax expense -- to an economic problem could be dealt with by simple tax cuts. It's something it's much more complexity needs to be. We can forget about the buffalo billion. It could be so much larger than that if we just make wholesale change attacks balls here in the state and that's what our rob mystery it was say. But the problem he had -- he spoke. About a a program that Governor Cuomo has put. You know a million dollars behind trying to sell to western new York and by the way if you book -- numbers. The average voter here in west -- has bought it. So when he was critical -- the Buffalo News came after rock mastery. Antonio says he's got a check up on -- she's got to understand that things happen the Buffalo Bills is dead wrong of course but progress Reno is absolutely right. But if you think -- get -- head handed to him after criticizing the whole the buffalo billion wait until you see. What would happen to a politician if they criticized Andrew Cuomo for example. Or another person that has a role on this by the -- doing good job of that. County executive mark own car if you wanna stand between them and the political decisions and what things they can do. When it comes of the Buffalo Bills you're gonna get stop. So we we were looking -- middle course -- on cars is it is not running for reelection this year he's very focused on a lot of different things including the Buffalo Bills. But here's the Governor Cuomo absolutely step -- up. Absolutely. I think he's being quite despite. The county executive is and others right now because they wanna see the bidders come for -- they don't wanna have. Some bidders say you know what it's too political I don't wanna get involved in this because that bidder could be the one who would win and keep them here in Western New York. So there albeit a little bit quiet even even Donald Trump who by the way I work with. Even Donald Trump refused popular media about this who wanna talk about something unusual. Donald Trump saying no to the media. You know he's not talking about it not talk about it. Al -- not talking about it anymore. Golan not talking about. A -- we understood from the news today. -- Jacob's family is not gonna get involved in buying the team and and we also understand from some analysis in the news today that they may have a limited role in putting together a stadium group as well. But we note that family is going to do whatever they can keep team here and that's what we need from the from the Jacobs from other community leaders who need them to do everything. To keep the team. A very political person. The last summit did a show here on WB yen about the Buffalo Bills. I -- some. HE double toothpicks from so my political -- -- this order in the matters to you -- -- you know we've got Cuomo running for reelection he's gonna put. A New York under. With his increasingly. Left wing policies -- -- we've got the president who's losing Iraq. As we speak to me as I'm sitting here talking about a will miss the tiny little NFL team. Americans are at risk and it is in in Iraq where it was all the work that our soldiers did all the victories that we -- beings. Absolutely overrun by. By the al-Qaeda affiliate there in Iraq and people ask why why are you talking about Buffalo Bills I worry about it. I mean I came home in 2010 -- because it was time for me because my family -- race a family here raise my kids. And I've hired just tired of listening to all these politicians just talk about it. And you should be tired of it to you should be absolutely sick of. And they're gonna put the politics. Into this there's no question. And you shouldn't tolerate. The watched them watch. There's no question. Buffalo -- stadium will be a part of the buffalo billion mark my words my name is Michael Guido I'm in for Tom our lead. Here under these radio at 930 WB CN.
