“FireDickJauron” Billboard Campaign a Success

  • Posted on October 13, 2009 at 11:04 pm

Ryan Abshagen may be a Bills fan who’s merely 18 years old, but he’s seen enough of the Buffalo Bills to conclude he doesn’t want Dick Jauron roaming his favorite team’s sideline. Contrasting to the majority of fans contempt to vent to in the living room, supper table, water cooler or local tavern, Abshagen took his disdain for Jauron a step further.

He created the website “FireDickJauron“. While the site helped spread its self explanatory message, apparently it wasn’t enough. He started a campaign soliciting donations to purchase a billboard on the Buffalo I-190 Interstate, specifically to let Ralph Wilson know what the fans think of a coach who’s won exactly 3 of his last 15 games.

Good Named MAAC Rookie of the Week for Second Time

  • Posted on October 13, 2009 at 9:43 pm

Canisius College freshman Samantha Good was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week, the conference announced on Monday. It’s the second time in the last three weeks that Good has received the honor.

In two Canisius road victories last weekend, Good led the Canisius offense by averaging 3.44 kills per set. Good had 13 kills and five blocks in the five-set win at Loyola – the fourth time this season Good has had 10 kills and five blocks in a match. The 5-foot-10 middle blocker then had a team-high 18 kills, the fifth time in six matches Good has led the Griffs in kills, to go along with three service aces and seven digs – both career highs – in the win at Rider.

Jonny Flynn proves early he belongs in NBA

  • Posted on October 13, 2009 at 2:35 pm

Niagara Falls high school alum Jonny Flynn joined the Minnesota Timberwolves this summer and has immediately stepped up to prove that despite being a lottery pick on the team, he came to the Land of 10,000 Lakes to work and won’t stop until he proves he deserves the starting spot that he has been given.

In the first preseason game for the Timberwolves on Sunday October 4th against the Milwaukee Bucks, Flynn not only was a part of the starting line-up, he also posted 14 points to the final score. When asked about his nerves stepping onto a NBA court for the first time, Flynn told a reporter, “You are just so anxious you want to go out there and make something happen right away but you have to be patient.”

Harvard Cup recap: Burgard stays perfect, Riverside impeaches Presidents

  • Posted on October 13, 2009 at 1:26 pm

After five weeks in the 2009 Harvard Cup season, there only seems to be one constant. Just past the halfway mark of the regular season, there are the Burgard Bulldogs, Riverside Frontiers and then everybody else.

The Bulldogs and the Frontiers took care of business in dominating fashion as the teams solidified their Number 1 and 2 positions in the standings respectively. The Blue Bulldogs outclassed their foes from East this past Saturday, while the Riverside crew pummeled the Grover Presidents in the Harvard Cup’s version of Friday Night Lights.

Once upon a time, Bisons were almost an A.L. franchise

  • Posted on October 13, 2009 at 11:59 am

Did you know the Buffalo Bisons were within weeks of becoming a part of the American League way back in 1900? Yes, that’s correct; we were oh so close to becoming a Major League Baseball team permanently.

The Buffalo Bisons technically were a Major League Baseball team; part of the National League from 1879-1885. In 1886 the Buffalo Bisons moved into Minor League Baseball as member of the original International League. By the late 1890’s they moved to what was called the Western League, and were within weeks of becoming a Major League team when the International League announced it was changing over to the American League in 1900.

Select Fans Making Bad Bills Season Worse

  • Posted on October 13, 2009 at 10:03 am

The Buffalo Bills have been a disaster on the field.  At 1-4, including three straight losses they’re squarely headed towards a tenth straight season without making the playoffs.  The defense is a M.A.S.H. unit, the offensive line is in shambles and their quarterback has fans clamoring for the return of J.P. Losman (yes, it’s that bad). 

Even Terrell Owens is just “going with the plays that are called”.   It’s gotten so bad their head coach has an approval rating that makes former President Bush feel like J.F.K.

Buffalo Bills: Week 5 Film Session

  • Posted on October 13, 2009 at 9:04 am

First thing’s first: you’re welcome.  Or rather, I apologize.  Probably the latter.  I did, in fact, re-watch enough of the Buffalo Bills’ 6-3 loss to the Cleveland Browns to both get enough for a Film Session discussion and make me viciously nauseous.  I’ll let y’all take bets on how long it took me to get there.  But either way, either you’re welcome for braving the film, or apologies for bringing the game back up.  I, myself, am in the latter group; I apologized profusely and repeatedly to myself last night for making me do that.

After the jump: your Week 5 film session.  Topics of discussion: Trent Edwards, his offensive line, Marshawn Lynch, the safety position, Keith Ellison and Brian Moorman.
