Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula purchased the Buffalo Bills for a hefty price of $1.4 billion. Pegula beat out a group from Toronto, and celebrities like Donald Trump and Jon Bon Jovi when it came to his purchase.
Naturally, “The Donald” had to send out a zinger on Friday regarding the sale:
The Wilson family should thank me. Pegula overpaid for the @buffalobills because of me!

Ralph Wilson was the founder and owner of the Buffalo Bills until he died in March. A family trust inherited the team and put it up for sale, where Pegula’s bid prevailed.
The expensive pricetag goes to show how much demand there is to own an NFL team, even one that has been a bottom-feeder lately like the Bills. And aren’t we all much happier that Pegula is the team owner instead of The Donald?
