Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora: 'I Understand Fans' Hostility' Over Tour Departure

Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora says he understands why fans were upset by the abrupt departure of the group "Tour because we can."

"I can see why they (the fans) are hostile," says Sambora "Because they went out and bought tickets and they expected me play, too. So, there is some hostility in my opinion that would come along with that."

Sambora - Bon Jovi founding member and native of Woodbridge - is set to tour Australia later this month. He left the Bon Jovi world tour citing "personal problems", in April 2013.

After the departure of Sambora, TMZ, citing unnamed sources close to the situation said the wait time was due to precipitation of finance. The tabloid also claimed Sambora Bon Jovi would be underestimated.

Sambora was replaced by Phil X for the rest of the "Tour because we can", as was the case in 2011, when he entered rehab.

"I'm sure it's a large guitar and I'm sure that people have a good time anyway," says Sambora FasterLouder Phil X. "It was one of those moments.'m Not saying that the band is over, I do not I know, but that's the way it is now.”

In his recent interview, Sambora said he was absent from the tour because I needed a break.

"I have not been home for a year ever," says Sambora. "I missed a lot of life. Badge And love and happiness is worth more than the currency of money. And I'm sure it was not a popular decision, but I had to."

Donald Trump And Jon Bon Jovi Mentioned As Buyers For Buffalo Bills

Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly is ready to make an offer to buy the Buffalo Bills . Donald Trump is on board, too.

Do not pass by the family of owner Jeremy Jacobs Boston Bruins. E includes the name of New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi for more flavors.

It is not every day - or every year - one NFL franchise goes on the market as the bills are, after the death of owner Ralph Wilson last month.

Wilson wishes to have the team sold instead of being transmitted to his family raise the possibility that the bills are moved from the city that has been his home for over 50 years. Toronto and Los Angeles are the possible landing sites because the owners have the opportunity to earn more money than in Buffalo, the second smallest market in the NFL.

Prospective owners are already lining or at least expressing interest.

Without naming names, the Deputy Erie County Executive Richard Tobe said he has been contacted by a maximum of 10 groups of potential owners, which has said to contact the team.

The Bills were valued by Forbes magazine last year at $ 870 million , but the sale price could go higher, given the number of bidders is expected and the shortage of NFL teams in the market .

The formal bidding process will not begin until the estate of Wilson names a investment banking firm to put an updated value of the franchise and oversee the negotiations.

"We're waiting," Michael Cohen, executive vice president of Trump said this week. “And Mr. Trump is at the top of the list.”

Cohen said Trump, the real estate mogul and reality TV star New York City, has already contacted the NFL, Wilson and several farm owners in the league.
"No one is more serious than Donald Trump," Cohen said, reiterating one point Trump did last week in tweets. “Donald Trump has made clear that the Bills will stay in Buffalo.”

Dan Kelly, vice president of Jim Kelly Inc., told The Associated Press last week that his brother will pursue the Bills.
"Jim is an active participant in moving forward," Kelly said, noting that his brother will pursue the Bills despite undergoing treatment for a recurrence of breast cancer.

The name of the Jacobs family also continues to appear, according to several people familiar with the process.
"He is definitely a player," one person told the AP, speaking on condition of anonymity because Jacobs has not revealed his plans.

Last week, Mr. Jeremy Jacobs issued a statement saying it has no intention of selling the Bruins to purchase the Bills, a move that would be necessary because NFL rules do not allow owners to control major sports franchises different markets. But Jacobs’s statement did not address whether their children could be involved in a group of owners.

Jacobs is from Buffalo, and three children, Jeremy Jr., Lou and Charlie, are the directors of the company based in Buffalo caterer Delaware North. Charlie Jacobs is also a principal of the Bruins.

Then there's Bon Jovi, which is linked to Larry Tanenbaum, a developer based in Toronto and president of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, which controls the Raptors of the NBA and the NHL Maple Leafs.

While Bon Jovi and Tanenbaum have close ties, no formal relationship has been made between the two implies a potential purchase of the bills and their relocation to Toronto.

The representative of Bon Jovi, Ken Sunshine said: “Jon is passionate about owning an NFL team," but steered clear of any mention of the Bills.

There are major obstacles that stand in the way of equipment relocation for the duration of the lease of 10 years who came to the state and county in December 2012.

The Bills could incur a fine of $ 400 million, including addressing the prospect of moving during the term of the concession. There is one exception that would allow the Bills to break the lease for a little less than $ 28400000 in July 2020.

Donald Trump And Jon Bon Jovi Will Battle To Buy The Buffalo Bills

With the recent death of owner Ralph Wilson, the Buffalo Bills will go on sale and Jon Bon Jovi and Donald Trump are among those interested in buying the NFL franchise.

Bon Jovi is a group based in Toronto is expected to bid for the Bills with the intention of eventually moving the team north of the border to become the first Canadian franchise in the NFL according to the Toronto Sun

However, the Bills lease with Erie County does not allow the team to move at least until 2020.

Second only to Los Angeles, Toronto is the second largest in North America without an NFL team city has been home to a Bills game every year since 2008. However, attendance at the Bills games in Toronto has declined in recent years and the series will not be played in 2014.

Donald Trump has also thrown his name into the mix and insists that he will “give a heavy shot “for the purchase of the bills according to the Buffalo News.

Trump, the former owner of the New Jersey Generals of the now-defunct USFL, also makes it clear that he would keep the team in Buffalo since that will make it more convenient for him, living in New York.

With a net worth reported $ 3.9 billion, Trump may be able to pay the price, probably approach $ 1.0 billion. Strict property of NFL owners requires groups include at least one person who owns at least 30 % of the team.
Unlike Trump, speculation is that Bon Jovi would not be able to pass the 30% rule, meaning that he would not be the majority owner.

NFL teams are among the most valuable major sports franchises in the world, with an average value of U.S. $ 1.1 million according to the latest ratings. The Bills are valued at $ 870 million.
