Buffalo Bills?

Over at Random Thoughts, the question is posed: Will the Bills still be here in five years?

Honestly, I don't know. If the Western New York economy is still something resembling then what it is now, then I'd suspect they're gone unless something very dramatic happens -- say, a Tom Golisano/Tim Russert partnership buys the team. But there will be a new Governor next year, and the Buffalo Prefecture of Blogistan seems to alternate between heady optimism for the city's future and a sense of fatalistic doom for same, so...I don't know.

I'd pose a follow-up question, though: If the team does get moved, will you still follow the fortunes of the franchise?

And still one more follow-up: How will you react if the Bills leave town and then win a Super Bowl within two or three years of leaving?
