DAILY REPORT
–Bills President and CEO Russ Brandon – who began his sports business career with the Red Wings which included stints as the team’s PR director and co-assistant General Manager – will be among the 16 new members inducted to the Frontier Field Walk of Fame on Sunday, August 25th prior to the Rochester Red Wings 1:05 pm game. Since 1997, a special section at the center of the Frontier Field Walk of Fame has been designated to honor Rochester’s sports legends. These individuals (coaches, players, management and media spanning Rochester’s sports history) are those who have made a monumental impact on the community through their achievements in the Rochester-area sports scene.

–The Buffalo Bills announced yesterday that Gregg Brandon has joined the organization as Vice President and General Counsel. Brandon will become part of the Bills’ Business Operations Department where he will be responsible for providing legal support, advice and counsel to the entire organization.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
DOUG MARRONE, Buffalo Bills head coach:
Commenting on the staff at St. John Fisher College:
“Just to start out, again, I’d like to say Dr. Bain and the staff here at St. John Fisher truly did an outstanding job. The fans that have come to watch us practice, the sponsors, it has truly been a great experience. I’m excited about it. I think it’s a first class operation. That’s what we’re trying to run here with Russ Brandon and all indications of what happened during camp show that’s what we’re striving for. I believe the staff at St. John Fisher was awesome.”
