Buffalo Bills fans push for Bon Jovi boycott to keep team out of Canada

Global News

TORONTO — A group of football fans in Buffalo, New York has organized a boycott of rock group Bon Jovi in an effort to keep the NFL’s Bills in the city.

Singer Jon Bon Jovi is rumoured to be considering a bid for the Buffalo Bills in partnership with Toronto’s Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment.

Many fans in Buffalo believe the team would be moved north.

A group known as 12th Man Thunder is asking bars, restaurants, bands and DJs to join the boycott online.

“Help us make ALL of [Western New York] a Bon Jovi FREE Zone,” reads the Facebook page.

“Ban Bon Jovi at your business and show your support for our Buffalo Bills!”

Those who sign up receive a pair of “Bon Jovi Free Zone” posters.

Supporters must promise not to play Bon Jovi songs — and the lead singer “is banned from your location.”
