Golisano, Congel to buy Bills?
Buffalo, N.Y. (AP) -- People involved with the negotiations said billionaire Tom Golisano has met with Buffalo Bills officials and public leaders, and informed them of his interest in purchasing the franchise.
A person said Golisano, founder of Paychex and an Irondequoit natives, also has had talks with Medley Centre developer Scott Congel to be as his partner in the potential ownership group.
The people spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because Golisano has not publicly announced his plans.
The person added that Golisano's proposal will include building a new football stadium south of Buffalo. The land belongs to Pyramid Management Group, which is owned by Robert Congel, Scott's father. The Syracuse-based company is one of the largest shopping mall developers in the northeast.
