CEO Russ Brandon of the Buffalo Bills too big articles in the paper over the weekend one was about the only. And the other was about season tickets. Yet to come out well my my thoughts -- season tickets I think bill's fans are excited for the season what do you think. Yeah I would we'd better very solid offseason. Be -- continued this year's season ticket base grow. It's. You were hoping to be jumper had a world we were -- -- which was in the 43 range but we've had very steady growth. And you we have interstate schedule again this year it's dissect your -- we've had three home games in December. And I'll tell you from a competitive standpoint. That's tremendous opportunity for us soon to be playing meaningful games in December. There's no place you rather be that at all here -- status now but it does. It does present a challenge. Because historically. December games are very difficult to sell. So were open that we're playing those beautiful games and and people are compelled to be out here and be part of the twelfth -- expert. And and that those December games were taken to the playoffs right. Capsule okay didn't exactly that's who we call a lot hope for some January games and some we could be January. Now. I'll get there sure are down Cheney where Mary speaking of the market recover and I wins. Let me just a backup quarterback decision what's the deal who makes that call you got Vince Young you got to Thigpen in the mix what's minicamp and -- comments. Well you know I think that's a process that goes any position in your per boarded talk about all the time as far is he's giving the opportunity to. Every position has the opportunity compete. You know that'll go right through with tragic happens. There is always difficult decisions are come come down the line is she gets to the end of training camp but a -- over sports. Swear up and what about police have -- we know that you're talking in the with the county in the state. I've signed leases for cars usually takes me about three to five days how long has -- -- but the fact that similar. He says that we have had discussions with the county and their officials and I'll give -- the pat answer we continued to. Move forward with those discussions but I'll leave -- -- Really wanna talk more about his annual meeting and not only -- is that human being difficult. There's somebody who's really just not understanding the process they've been very positive discussion. Room were part of the twelfth man experience what should we look most forward to. With the renovations at the stadium because when I think somebody renovating their house I'm excited to go see it as a fan what would we be excited to see at one bills drive. Well you know we wanna have opportunities to really improve the experience here it's going to be very fan centric. For the general population. But there will be some while factors involved but obviously see the footprint of the stadium. We need to improve we need to improve the congestion in the concourses. More restrooms more concession opportunities. So you know we've we've been working on this you know for over a year we think we -- our friends at popular here architecture we've made a lot of progress. But it really just to improve the overall expenditure rove was -- corporate France. It's an opportunity for fans to get involved with the hype of mini camp are there going to be meet and greet opportunities -- what is the F focused for the fans how many can. Many campus close -- -- and -- we we really focus heavily on that. At training camp yes I can't think urge people enough to make them. To drive down through iTunes saint John Fisher we have a tremendous camp experience. It's very and we called under the helmet opportunities for kids and families. To be up close and personal with our -- our players interactive games and -- just a great experience so we encourage people come about. And we heard Argentines in the Jefferson award. That's exciting for his volunteer it was for is a good thing worse without Pat LaFontaine excellent congratulations from all of us here can study. I would you know Jim does so much in the communities or -- nose and his great -- for him and obviously passed as receptive I you know you're always gonna get one question from -- we go this is that when the new owner of the team. -- -- -- Ready actually won easily -- optimal question but he pulled out. There. Any chance. That we may tweak the roster a little bit with a trade is free agents before training camp starts. We and it is it ever offer you. Are never happy Nancy.
