Buffalo businesses have banned Jon Bon Jovi’s music, shirtmakers have produced threads supporting the anti-JBV decree, and new Hall of Fame inductee Andre Reed has gone on record proclaiming "Man, f— Bon Jovi" (though the Hall of Famer later toned it down).
The sentiment stems from the singer and sports enthusiast’s involvement with a Toronto-based group vying for ownership of the for-sale Buffalo Bills.
Locals are fearful that JBV’s group, which includes Larry Tanenbaum (chairman of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment), will put the Bills on a moving truck as soon as feasible depsite the stated objective "to make the Bills successful in Buffalo."
You’ve got to feel for the fans in Buffalo. That said, this offering by one shirtmaker in Western New York, which groups the singer with three assassinated international villians — Osama Bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi — is absolutely ludicrous.
