BUFFALO BANS BON JOVI MUSIC BECAUSE FRONTMAN IS INTERESTED IN PURCHASING THE BILLS FOOTBALL FRANCHISE AND MOVING IT TO TORONTO

jonbonjoviprofile400 Chris Jordan of Asbury Park Press reports:

Bon Jovi’s music is getting bounced out of Buffalo.

A group of Buffalo Bills fans called 12th Man Thunder are upset with the intent of Jon Bon Jovi to move the Bills to Toronto if he and his Toronto-based group are successful in purchasing the franchise. They’ve created “Bon Jovi Free Zones” in the region and so far more than 60 locales and businesses have signed up as a protest against the possible move.

There was no Bon Jovi music playing at the Mandy’s Cafe on Clinton Street in Buffalo, a Bon Jovi Free Zone, on Wednesday.

“We love Bon Jovi and we love his music, but we don’t want the Bills to leave,” said Mandy’s Cafe bartender Kim Brown. “We’re No. 1 fans.”

The group’s goal is to have 70,000 petitioners — that’s a sell-out at the Bills’ current home, Ralph Wilson Stadium.

“The fans are fired up and standing behind any ownership team dedicated to keeping the Bills in (Western New York) while Mr. Jon Bon Jovi has made it clear that he would like to purchase the team, and move it to Toronto,” reads a statement on www.12thmanthunder.com.

Bon Jovi is part of a group with Maple Leaf Sports and entertainment executives Larry Tanenbaum and Tim Leiweke who are in the market to purchase the Bills after the death of owner Ralph Wilson. Groups that include Donald Trump and former Bills’ quarterback Jim Kelly are also in the running.

The Bills are valued at $870 million.

The Sayreville-born Bon Jovi is a professed football fan and the former owner of the Philadelphia Soul arena football team.

His son played for Notre Dame football last year.

  1. So His son played for Notre Dame football last year.

    • It’s hard to believe Bon Jovi made it so big. Cheesy crapy songs if u ask me. Man. Makes u wonder as a song writer if he can do it with that crap why can’t I?

  2. Ryan B. says:

    The weird thing is, Bills fans, is I’m starting a petition as a Clemson Tigers fan, to have C.J. Spiller and Sammy Watkins, rescued from having to play for you guys before their careers are destroyed by misuse or injuries. Free C.J. and Sammy!

  3. Torontonians don’t care about the NFL. They showed it in grand style when they failed to show up for Bills games the past 5 years. They were giving tickets away to those games. And if they think Buffalonians are going to make that trek to see a team that Bon Jovi bought and moved, he’s mistaken. Find someone else’s football team to buy, VULTURE!!!

  4. Richman says:

    The hell with THE BILLS, buy THE METS PLEASE. If you do I swear I’ll buy that ridiculous SPECIAL EDITION NEW JERSEY for $30. Jon please. They suck and can’t buy a hit at home.

  5. I think the whole world should be a permanent Bon Jovi Free-Zone!!!

    Here’s hoping the Bills fans get there wish and the team stays put.

  6. Both a Bills and Bon Jovi Fan says:

    Yes…they do say this on their website…”Mr. Jon Bon Jovi has made it clear that he would like to purchase the team, and move it to Toronto”…however I have not found ONE interview– written, audio or video–where this was said. I’d sure like to know where their info came from!!!! The old saying comes to mind. Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face!!

  7. Trust me, I really believe Roger Goodell & the rest of the owners won’t allow them to move to Toronto. Keep a sharp eye out on Donald Trump….he did own the forgotten USFL’s New Jersey Generals and has a huge interest in the Buffalo Bills. Joe in The Cuse

  8. Charlie C says:

    Why would you move an American football team to Canada?
    So much for a jersey boy.

  9. Taskerofpuppets says:

    Good start if ya ask me…..Justin Beiber,NEXT!

  10. Buffalo banning Bon Jovi? Think it’s time to move to Buffalo.

  11. Eric Heaton says:

    Other than just to stroke his ego, im assuming that this is nothing more than a way to shelter money? I know the bills suck but I doubt john bon and his group will win the bid to purchase the team let alone move it…if the above post is correct, why would they move a team to a market that doesnt want it?

  12. Stanley Eisen says:

    Like Lardzy said, the interest in Toronto for the NFL is so overrated. The Bills games played there didn’t sell out or come close. Corporations were forced to buy blocks of tickets so it wouldn’t be a complete embarrassment. They papered the house, giving away tix or selling them at discount so it wouldn’t look so bad. Toronto and Canada have the CFL, which is a great football league with a deep history, As fas as Bon Jovi’s music, soccer Mom’s love it, I wouldn’t go see Bon Jovi if you gave me tix.

  13. Richie Sambora says:

    I told you that scumbag wanted to buy a football team!!

  14. greasytune says:

    What do you expect from a liberal but, to run to Canada.

  15. I started my own Bon Jovi Free Zone decades ago.

  16. Patrick says:

    I don’t like Bon Jovi and never have.
    But what Buffalo is doing is just plain stupid.
    Has Buffalo ever boycotted anyone else for taking something away from them?
    Perhaps the people of Buffalo ought to make the Baffalo Bills franchise a cooperative and invest accordingly if they want to keep the team so badly. Make it a true team of the People.

  17. I thought he was a Jersey boy, the hell is he interested in the Bills for!?

  18. Buck Futt says:

    Good for Buffalo. Banning that douchebag boy band’s “music” is the best thing to happen to that town in at least a century.

  19. “I started my own Bon Jovi Free Zone decades ago.” Bob, that was priceless. hahahaha

  20. Gary B. says:

    Bob, I just about choked to death on a mouthful of Blue Moon when I read that! Thanks for the laugh brother!!!!!

  21. Richie Sambora is selling nerf footballs with his likeness of him at his club dates.

  22. Thanks, Gary B. Now if only Paul Stanley’s voice will be repaired in time for this summer’s tour w/Def Lep. I have my doubts, but I already bought tix.

  23. angelo valentino says:

    If you know the NFL its about money. Buffalo is a small market like Cleveland, Cinciinnati for example.
    Lardzy in the comments made a valid point that Toronto has no NFL fan base as they literally gave away thousands of tickets, I heard around 7600? attendance was low as well, proving that Canucks dont like NFL. AS FAR AS Bon Jovi, he also is a big chummy friend with Robert Kraft, owner of the Patriots. He would love to see the Bills gone.

  24. He has big $ in the Patriots.

  25. I’m not a Bills fan….but the team should stay in New York….Let’s face it..They are they only legitimate New York football team in the NFL. The Jets and the Giants are really New Jersey football teams….Sorry guys…that’s the state that they play in…I love telling Jets and Giant fans that! Ha ha ha ha! Rock on everyone!
