(Buffalo, N.Y.) – On the Buffalo Review (3/28) we discussed the possibility of the Bills building a new football stadium, efforts to bring rowing back to Buffalo State and the recent Dyngus Day celebration in Buffalo.
In the first segment of our show we spoke with Vic Carucci, from the Buffalo News, about his reporting, which indicates NFL executives believe the Bills need to build a new stadium within the next five years.
Next we spoke with Jason Winfree, an associate professor of economics at the University of Idaho who has written extensively about the NFL, about the economic impact of building a new stadium on communities and fans.
Then we spoke with Ed Corr, president of the West Side Rowing Club, and Jim Schaab, a member of the Buffalo State athletics Hall of Fame and the former coach of the men’s rowing team, about efforts to bring rowing back to Buffalo State, which hasn’t been an active sport at the college since the mid 1970s.
Finally, we spoke with Eddy Dobosiewic, an organizer of the Dyngus Day celebration in Buffalo, about the holiday and its popularity in western New York.
