How the Buffalo Bills stunned the NFL yet again

One big name who in the race and lost has now spoken out on his failure to purchase the AFC East team and has a very different attitude now.

Billionaire Donald Trump was reportedly hoping to buy the New York based franchise but his bid was unsuccessful.

Now, after failing to become and NFL owner, Trump and spoken out on his failed effort and has fired at shot at his would-be team.

Speaking to TMZ, Trump claimed that he is actually happy that he didn't become the Bills owner because it would have been a bad investment.

Pegula has bought the Bills for around $1.4 billion and as a result, it seems that Trump doesn't even care.

Speaking after the purchase was confirmed, Trump hardly seemed phased by his failure and I'm sure this may make him an unwelcome visitor to the city of Buffalo.

The New York native may have failed to acquire a team in his home state but with a man like Trump, we can't rule out him finding a path to NFL franchize ownership in the future.

A bad investment?

Trump's statements may make him seem somewhat bitter over losing out on the Bills, but is he in fact right?

The Bills are 3-2 this season and have just snapped a two game losing streak after last weekend's victory over the Detroit Lions.

The Bills shocked everyone by going 2-0 this season after they only managed six wins in the entirety of last season.

They failed to reach the play-offs last year and finished bottom of the AFC East, but this year they seem a more attractive prospect.

Perhaps it is an era of change in Buffalo and maybe that is why Trump wanted to buy in in the first place, but he has failed and it will be interesting to see how the rest of the season pans out for Buffalo.

They face AFC East rival the New England Patriots on Sunday and a win over the newly rejuvenated Tom Brady and his men could send a big message to the rest of the NFL.
