"While Bills fans can't own the team they cheer for, there is nothing preventing fans from lending to their team," investment banker Steve Brady wrote on his Web site, www.billsbonds.com. "Or, more accurately, lending money to a new owner by purchasing bonds (called Bills Bonds). The new owner could use the proceeds from these bonds to help pay the Bills' hefty price tag and keep the team in Buffalo." Investors would get their money back over time, receive interest payments (although lower than the market rate) and help keep the Bills where they belong, Brady has stated..."These fans would not be stockholders," he emphasized about his plan. "They would be the mortgage providers." [Buffalo News via Business Insider]
