With respect to the new CBA, Bills fans were interested in the state of the supplemental revenue sharing plan agreed upon by the NFL owners. Bills CEO Russ Brandon was asked about it in his press conference with GM Buddy Nix and head coach Chan Gailey.

“As you know, (revenue sharing) was important to our organization and many of the small markets throughout the league,” Brandon said. “Mr. Wilson supported it and we voted for it so we’re pleased and we’re moving forward.”

 When asked if it could be characterized as an improved plan to the revenue sharing plan in the previous CBA, Brandon answered in the affirmative.

“It’s fair to say. I think we need to go through the agreement and see how it applies, what the mechanics are moving forward but obviously we voted for the agreement in totality, Mr. Wilson did, so we’re pleased where the agreement is,” said Brandon. 

“We talk about it all the time as an organization, we need to be regional. We’re a volume business here in Buffalo because our price points are what they are. We have a large stadium, we have a lot of suites and we need to be filled to capacity as much as possible. That, coupled with what the core economics of the agreement (are), we’re focused on the field and providing Buddy all those resources.”
