The Buffalo Bills want to build a new stadium. The team has been fleecing Erie County for decades, even before the Pegulas bought the franchise in 2014. Now with the construction of a new stadium they're going to stick it to the public all over again. The public will likely pay more than a billion dollars of the $1.4 billion stadium price tag.

Now is the time when we Google "Terry Pegula net worth" and see that it is well over $5 billion. So, he could pay for the entire thing himself and still have more than $4 billion remaining, which is still way too much money for one person to have. And while Pegula will pay only a fraction of the bill, he'll be the only one to get free tickets every Sunday.

Honestly, the time has come for cities to tell sports teams to f--- off and go somewhere else. Make people like the Pegulas pay their fare share. And in their case, that's all of it.
