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. 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.

  2. 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!
