For the show from the Buffalo Bills president and C. This branding the morning. Very good morning -- Soria. We're ready for the game on Sunday as -- we our sports and and -- that it was a great shot that they can't as the sun went down Ralph Wilson Stadium last night that was pretty cool it seems like everybody's ready. You know it's been very hectic around here gets ready for the opener people are cited. Lot of work being done on the stadium and you know good good week of practice and ready to -- percent us. First question how is Ralph Wilson and owner the Buffalo Bills done. Visuals was great I talked to every day he's excited obviously for the opener and -- keep him up to speed doesn't throughout training camp. He's he's ready to go he couldn't wait for the game last night kickoff this season has. Is excited about where were present as an organization. -- was -- partying in Ohio. But I you know he went back as he did that a bunch of time -- -- you know hall of famers and he's. Dot you know wonderful show you know with a hall of fame and trying to. Restore a lot of the old footage and in different things from from the AFL from the old AFL days and you know it was a great to have celebration for him to be backward and Osama cult members. Baltimore Ravens didn't look like Super Bowl champs last night. Yeah no they they ran into a buzz saw Denver campaign obviously through -- and that's -- it was a pretty. Pretty and spent watching that game turnaround in the second half really it's just good. People ball and they get -- -- You know what they say on any given Thursday anything can happen. Let's see kick off. What are we looking forward to on Sunday game lies against the patriots. Well you know we've got a lot different things going on -- they -- the one thing is suitable if I can stress and into the fans it's. You know to get that escaped early. And really understand it and make sure -- we've it's been said over and over again spoke with the new -- policy was the league. To make sure people you know have a good understanding of you know what's permitted what's not go on our web site you know we've sent out atomic communication you guys done a great job promoting it. But you know it's just we don't want it. We don't wanna be inconvenient for people to bring him big purses and so on and so forth and then have to turn rock bring him back to it ourselves. What the person is really a fashion statement filed a twenty. Its ability to block -- order under our -- of the members. Go to my out of the and then I you know have worried about people seeing what's in the clear plastic that I think ring. -- make that clear plastic and show as interesting as possible okay yeah. I think I can you you said get there early to new in your mind define what early is to you because I'm 39 yeah. You know the parking -- -- which you can yell no but you know the gates open at 1130. And the fact of the matter is his seventy plus thousand people comment and people want all walked into the gates says. It's ten minutes to water five minutes to wander -- awaits them and it doesn't matter how many did structure you have. So you know -- Recommendation noises you know have a good time tailgate and get into the stadium get comparable to -- for the game because you know we need. Need the fans to bring this weekend and -- -- is are comparable for pitchers as possible. I suggest no later than 1215 I usually go at 1215 an I literally. You know what I have no trouble getting it. Did you go and at that time you you'll fly through yeah is no matter what stadium and visit across the country you're gonna go and five minutes prime minister for game time we need to be prepared the way. We're talking -- -- -- bill's presidency EO Russ Brandon tell me the renovations is there anything you need to know in terms of working around the renovations. Are they done and what's the best part them. Well right now we don't were really in the infrastructure phase of our renovations so you know to the you're general public you won't see a lot but it is a construction site you know on the east end of this stadium in the old administration clothe there's a lot of work that's being done. A lot of excavation work that's being done right now so it's exciting. You know to see that the processes started. And you know when we get through the conclusion of -- next season you know we'll have very. I don't totally different state for people to enjoy. Gerris Byrd wants to be treated that's the latest rumor what do you say to that car didn't question not a good. I have got him just how I think really important thing that's one should take our daughters and a -- On was one side I can play this managers has been. You know in in the facility for a few weeks now has been nothing but a professional as I've said all logged in training camp these. You know wonderful individual. Who comes in and professional matter each and every day but it zero issue relative to that it's a lot of you know eight years and you hear a lot of different media reports about stuff but there's no issues -- aren't. I can't. You go down and you watch practice and you see EJ Manuel -- had the surgery everybody saying -- 110%. As the president and CEO of the organization what makes you confident what did you see EG due this week that you're like he's ready. Well I mean he's been you know. And so we've ready you know going into it you know even when he was. Not on the practice field you know he was involved in a lot of mental reps of being a part of -- and going out here and doing the physical work really really. You know watching that is knee procedure were really in the hands of his rehab and doctor -- zone in the trainers and his team and so. You know he looked they are very good practice this week and leading up to it. You know -- doctor clears him and he's children ago that we were we're very charges she worked and he brings on Sunday. So the Buffalo Bills name the captains -- what they do different this year to get the team together. Well you know we've got three great captains and our veterans and Eric Gordon projection -- lands and you know those guys bring -- a leadership to the organization and to the team. And you know one of the things that they did different this year we had a little better -- -- black blue and -- bill and they're captains. Had all the coaches and all of our players there -- you know delivered the messages that they want it to. Send through the 2013. Season and -- I think everyone is you know laser focused on our goal and that's to get back to the well. The captain's pick for that dinner the coached. -- -- -- interest and because what was the -- there are some how to build mated to meet this crazy yeah. Yeah. Yeah hundred and point one ounce -- by -- a little bit. A little bit expensive and so trying to work those guys were little extra but I don't think Ghana and chanting anti. -- should gumbo go night. And I -- know that our management is strong between you would say Doug Whaley who got a stronger morning practice -- can -- more in the morning good question thanks. Who convention or you know I think it's going to be pretty close to actually -- I don't know you have -- him. I get a meeting with the dogs who's who's the first -- to work at one bills drive. Well -- coach Barone I think you you beat this by a little. Where it's an early grew over here that's for sure. -- I know that. The tailgating is an art form here in Buffalo, New York. I think the bills organization should start giving up -- gave awards to the twelfth man because yes. A lot of you need to walk out and see what -- this is happening I don't think you have an idea what's happening on the controlled craziness for exuberance. Safeties make my browser yeah -- and young men and -- we do it. It was mounted patrol in what they do purposes yeah you know will be out there this year. You know we're one of our new partners and -- the out looking at all the different things relative to. Delegating -- gonna be given out compliment -- recycling and trash -- short notice but they're also. Going to be out there checking out some of the best known gators are we're gonna feature them on our website at. It's sad you know that. We can get the -- and bracelets because that's clearly a football question. I heard just yet there's going to be at the bills Alex and -- bracelet charm bracelet. I think you'd get -- operators studio from what I understand you understand how cool that is that is going to be highly I don't. Many -- get them like it was like we announced the partnership where do you buy them. I don't you know where you're from real odd question that. It means you are questions that. A list of great questions now. And if you head coach new ideology new schemes new quarterback in the -- and -- it. With the CJ Spiller everybody's excited about him and Thurman Thomas we talked yesterday about the hall of fame game he says when he looks at how he played with the Buffalo Bills. He just is most likely would you agree with that. Yeah I and Thurmond I was two of the greatest players all. It out of therapy has she -- speed back in the day. He's that's the one thing with TJ. He's a very explosive player. And obviously has great vision and brings a lot or offense but got a long way to go before it be Thurman Thomas has. Now how did you as as management and you know keep him level through his. Personal family thing. Well obviously -- horrible tragedy and you procedures -- better -- You know we is organization just tried to support him and and beat or form amazing that he needed in in and does need so. We spent a lot of time together you know during the process and spent a lot of time in general securities. Always open the officers spent his time in the community doesn't part of the communities in a lot of time weather see our department so. You know our thoughts and prayers have been with him and his family has been very difficult art form. And tell me about this story and that in the paper today about season tickets so there are still season tickets of people combined. Yeah well you know our season ticket process. Once we get to the first game of the precision you know for the full season that. If that does come to a conclusion but you can certainly advise seasons you know throughout you know on -- under -- basis. And we do have obviously tickets available for the remainder of the season. Tickets are gone very well I'm obviously this canceled us we know we still have tickets -- for Carolina next week. And in an -- chewing game so we have a lot of work to do on the -- front but overall fairly pleased. Another Carolina game's going to be special with the other wall of fame guys. I'm is I'm guessing this is the go to game for like if you love the classic bills this of the game to go to. Yeah I mean it's true going to be a real special day we've got so may have the wall favors are coming back and it is great to ceremony planned in conjunction with the she's in ticket holders and you know it's a great opportunity you know for our fans that have been -- this for so long to applaud those guys could welcome back to the communities. You know still be a great great celebration. So as as a new as a new start you know we have -- beginning on Sunday. Everyone's worked real hard to get to this point between you know drafting each day getting the new coach and everything how does make you feel. It's exciting I mean we've we don't put a lot of work into it his organization. Our fans have been enormously patient -- the losses we've discussed. Many times and just looking forward to get this thing kicked off and -- start this new -- and create our own new championship legacy. I mean the goal from day one and as I mentioned on January 1 was to build. Program and an organization first sustained success over the long Paula in tomorrow's the first step. And -- guys -- were all busy and organizational role -- up to and I -- our friends -- to get -- so we need to fans you know as I mentioned earlier you are here and and really have the Ralph rocker because we as a match we need to make this place very loud and -- copper. I think buffalo can can help out make -- very loud -- to seek microphones. Seek microphones and sell -- -- might also. Is the commission come this game as you know -- united local regional. You know like I don't believe he is -- I was usually hear that fine now but I usually gets tougher one game during the course of the year for sure -- as you know local. -- -- By the way and l.'s from my Gmail account it to I'll gladly please when he comes up is Mike -- -- to except that. But on the right now fully know that you'll come it doesn't I thought you know I tell you how she possibly -- -- handed me in this interview questions to ask you.
