Green Bay Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy extended his sympathies to the Wilson family on their loss. Born and raised in Western New York, Murphy was able to relate a bit more to the legacy left by the Bills founder and owner.
“The Green Bay Packers extend our deepest sympathies to the family of Ralph Wilson and the Buffalo Bills organization,” said Murphy in a statement. “Ralph was a key leader in the success of professional football and its growth as America’s favorite game. We owe him a tremendous amount of gratitude for his work. He also was a friend of the Packers, a fellow small-market team, as the league evolved its business operations to ensure all teams had firm financial footing to achieve competitive balance on the field. The success of the league is a lasting testament to Ralph’s vision.
“On a personal note, as a life-long Bills fan, I have a great appreciation for all he did for the Bills and the Western New York community over the years.”
