Are Buffalo Sports Eternally Doomed?

The Buffalo Sabres got their first win in five tries last night. It came by way of a(nother) great performance by goalie Ryan Miller. They have seven wins in this lockout-shortened season. Strangely, they are currently the worst team in the Eastern Conference, and yet they are only four points […]

End Of The Lindy Line 2

The Buffalo Sabres announced today that they have “relieved Lindy Ruff of his coaching duties”. That is the “nice” way of saying, “We fired him.” It’s been asked for, begged for, longed for, pined for, and even fully expected for a few seasons now. Sabres fans (and players?) have felt […]

Seriously, Bills?

After all of the talk of Bill Cower, and Marty Schottenheimer, and Mike Shannahan. Even Jon Gruden and several more lesser known, but highly-qualified candidates. After all of the “due process”.

Regarding The Buffalo Bills 2

Perhaps you have heard that the professional football team nearest to the Campbell family hearts both geographically and emotionally has recently been making some changes.
