Rumblings that the Bills will be building a new stadium - days in Orchard Park are numbered?

Recommended Posts

It's time to pick a location.  Next to New Era Stadium is the best short term planning because everyone knows how traffic routes work and expansion of the open area around the current complex.  Downtown would be a long term plan and it would take a lot of adjustments to traffic.  Open stadium vs dome is an option in Orchard Park but a dome would seem to be the only option for a downtown location.  A dome would help in bringing in other venues such as the NCAA semifinals or finals.  Yeah, money is a BIG issue that is not easily solved but a downtown dome would bring in other revenue.  There is a market for more hotel rooms based on the occupancy rate during the summer and early in the schedule Bills games.  So we have a few snowy, blustery games every year.  Canceling a game because of a Lake Erie fueled snow dump does suck though.  I'm torn.

I am still waiting for a much needed Peace Bridge to aid in commerce.  Actually, a new bridge to Grand Island would be a better option in my opinion.

I hope you’re a young man, DB. I see some more “feasibility studies” on the horizon........

If it’s close and equidistant to the existing one, I might like something matching. But if it’s offset from it, I think cable stay bridges are the most photogenic and aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

When I see this thread title it makes me think of rumblings in my bowels.  Yikes, I'm starting to sound like Daryl did in the shoutbox back in the day.  :)

Well, we could surround the bridge with windmills, that would keep them from getting to it...

The problem is that windmills kill them too.
