Anti-Bon Jovi Group Trying To Ban Group Due To Possible Buffalo Bills Sale
Several Buffalo Bills fans have formed a group urging local Buffalo, New York businesses to ban Bon Jovi music. Ultimate Classic Rock reported that Jon Bon Jovi is part of a group of investors -- Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment -- which owns the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors and Toronto FC -- and is actively seeking to buy the Bills franchise and move the NFL team across the border to Toronto, Canada.
 
The anti-Bon Jovi group called "12th Man Thunder" joined forces, "to give Buffalo Bills fans a voice during the sale of the franchise, to support ownership groups committed to keeping our team in WNY (Western New York) and to unite the various fan groups for our common cause." So far the group has succeeded in he group is getting a total of 68 businesses -- mainly bars and clubs -- to keep Bon Jovi music off their jukeboxes, not permit bands to perform the band’s songs, and to ban any and all Bon Jovi merchandise from their premises.
 
Group co-founder, Charles Sontag III was quoted as saying: "We’ve had it with Jon Bon Jovi and his Toronto ownership group working to steal our team. There are thousands of fans that agree with us, so we decided to start the ‘Bon Jovi Free Zone’ promotion to let him and the poachers in Toronto know that we won’t just stand by and let them move the Bills to Toronto. We’re asking Buffalo area bars and restaurants to contact us and we’ll give them a free poster to show their commitment to banning Bon Jovi music from their premises."
 
Jon Bon Jovi, who was at one time a part owner of the AFL's Philly Soul team, admitted that he's been a fan of football all his life: "I love football. I go into mourning on the day after the Superbowl. I worry, what am I gonna do? How am I gonna live until August?"
