What would be the name you would think of? Based just on the team logo, a Tik Tok star decided to challenge his girlfriend to name NFL teams. When they came to the charging Buffalo logo the Bills used, she didn't guess the Bills. But she did come up with an amazing name for Buffalo's team.
According to the Buffalo Bill's website, the nickname "Bills" was picked by then-owner Ralph C. Wilson in honor of another football team that played in Buffalo years before the current Bills joined the AFL.
The first Bills organization, an All-America Football Conference team, came to town. Those Bills were originally named the Bisons, but owner James Breuil, who also owned Frontier Oil Company, wanted to go all in on the frontier theme for his Buffalo holdings. He renamed the football team the Buffalo Bills after the Pony Express rider after running a contest that offered a $500 prize for the winning entry.
What we do know is that the Buffalo Bills are not changing their name but it is always fun to ask the question what if? Plus Laser Buffalo Mafia just doesn't sound right.
