With the Buffalo Bills up for sale, Jeffrey Gundlach, a prominent bond investor in Los Angeles, is preparing a possible bid for the football team, according to reports in The Buffalo News. He is said to have partnered with Jim Kelly, the team’s Hall of Fame quarterback. Mr. Gundlach, the founder of DoubleLine Capital, grew up in a Buffalo suburb and has dreamed about buying the Bills in the past. He told The Wall Street Journal in 2011 that he was “thinking about” bidding for the team as part of a group…The Buffalo News, citing two unidentified sources, reported on Friday that Mr. Gundlach and Mr. Kelly had met with the trust that owns the Bills. The report said the two were hoping to join a larger bidder as minority partners.
Obviously, should Gundlach be successful in his quest to own a piece of the Bills, he’ll be far too busy to shoot an adult film based on the experience; but he has fans, and they very well may be too inspired by this jack of all trades not to capture his essence on screen and in his favorite format. They’d need to get a screenwriter involved for the dialogue, but clearly “An NFL owner whips his team into shape on and off the field” is a good place to start. Or shoot it documentary style, and let Cinemax take a run at HBO’s “Hard Knocks” with “Hard Cocks.”
