Flight of the Buffalo Bills

Speculation in the Welland Tribune that the Buffalo Bills will soon take up residence in the same city as Richard Florida:

But a jury would need little - if any - deliberation in the case of the Buffalo Bills' long-term survival in western New York. News that the deepest pockets in Toronto will be paying nearly five times the cost of the highest-priced ticket at Ralph Wilson Stadium for "renting" the Bills for eight games over the next five seasons must read like an obituary back home in the Rust Belt that Buffalo has become since the steel industry followed the money to more profitable climes.

Would fans from Buffalo make the trek to Toronto to watch their beloved Bills? Mulling that over makes me wonder if there are any Blue Jays fans in Western New York.
