Tonawanda News —
Why didn't Ralph do something to prevent it? Why didn't he announce a succession plan? Why couldn't he cement his legacy as Buffalo's greatest sportsman and a true civic icon by doing something — doing anything — to ensure his beloved team would stay ours after he left it?
Thank you, Mr. Wilson, for all the memories your football team has brought me. I hope there are many more to come.
Thinking about it, it feels like I'm back to my grandparents' living room as a boy, praying we get something we deserve.
