Hair Rocker Non Grata

Jon Bon Jovi is in the mix to be the next owner of the Buffalo Bills. The famous rock star has long coveted NFL ownership and is furiously moving money around in preparation for a bid which could exceed $1 billion. Bon Jovi — who was famously on the Giants sideline when they beat the Bills in Super Bowl XXV — is rumored to be considering a move to Toronto. Meanwhile, many displeased Buffalo locals fear the worst and have mounted a Bon Jovi boycott. Reeves Wiedeman of New York Magazine reports on the hotly-contested complexities of NFL team ownership changing hands.
