i remember listening on NPR to a bunch of french people in paris sitting at a coffee shop complaining about the U.S. and how we think we're better than everyone and try forcing ourselves on everyone. at some point the journalist recording the discussion pointed out that they were sitting at a starbucks.

 

i feel the same way about yankee transplants in the south complaining about life down here.

It's cool. When the Bills move to Toronto in a couple of years, they will probably change the name.

Yeah, the Toronto Buffalo Bills.


More like:

Toronto it-doesn't-matter-what-our-team-name-is-it's-still-better-than-Bills.

I'm sure they'll find a way to shorten it, though.

It's weird, but different. Animal team names are so boring.

http://en.wikipedia....i/Buffalo_Bills


 

The Bills were named as the result of the winning entry in a local contest by Michael Doucas (son of legendary NFL star Sam Davies), which named the team after the AAFC Buffalo Bills,[5] a previous football franchise from the All-America Football Conference that merged with the Cleveland Browns in 1950. That team was named after a male bison or "Billy". The name was chosen from a contest that was won by Bill Keenan. The similarity to famous Wild West showman Buffalo Bill Cody, while used as a play on words in the previous Bills team's iconography, is not (nor has it ever been) used by the current team. The Bills' cheerleaders are known as the Buffalo Jills. The official mascot is Billy Buffalo.

 

 

You need to know the history of the team to follow the connections. But they are named after a male bison not a person.

 

FYI Buffalo was the far west a long time ago. There were bison there then.

There are a ton of people here from Buffalo because those worthless turds drove their local economy to hell.  Now they are moving in here like locusts to tell us how to build an economy, run a successful NFL franchise, and just to criticize the South in general, as their free-loading, jobless asses bask in the glow of open businesses and people who take care of themselves.  So, before you mindless know-it-alls generously share your cunning and wit with us, please provide a disclaimer that explains what the hell you actually have accomplished in life.   Buffaloes were nearly wiped out and made extinct by the beginning of the 20th century.  You didn't have to take the name of your town so seriously.  Jobless, whining bastards.
