Bon Jovi's Rep Denies He's Interested In The Buffalo Bills
A spokesman for Jon Bon Jovi told The Associated Press that the New Jersey rocker is not in talks to purchase the NFL's Buffalo Bills. Bon Jovi, a die-hard football fan, was one of the original owners of the arena football league team, the Philadelphia Soul, and played Pop Warner football while growing up in Sayreville, New Jersey. On Sunday (November 24th) CBSSports.com posted an item stating that Bon Jovi "is among the parties positioning themselves to purchase the Bills" after the death of 95-year-old Bills owner Ralph Wilson's death.
Bon Jovi's publicist Ken Sunshine said that although Bon Jovi is interested in one day becoming the owner of an NFL team, he calls the report "preposterous," adding that Bon Jovi "has too much respect for owner Ralph Wilson to consider engaging in discussions for buying the team."
Jon Bon Jovi who remains a fan of both the AFL and NFL, says that the AFL is for extreme football fans like himself: "I don't think it can ever be as popular as the NFL. This is for guys like me that go into mourning after the Super Bowl. That have nothing else to look forward to -- baseball, basketball, hockey -- none of it matters to me until championship time and I live for football."
