The problem isn't that Buffalo is over looked so much as no local ownership steps up. Buffalo and others in the same boat are better off in most cases to not have a team than have one with out of area ownership that could care less about the community. Just take a look at the AIFA and how their leadership just sets up teams anywhere without local ownership and no real marketing plan. Generally these fail in a year or two or draw poorly because mo marketing means nobody in town even knows the team exists.

I am sure Buffalo would be a great market, but you should hope if a team returns it will be with good solid and committed local ownership. If not you could be just another market for some league to leave a trail of unpaid bills and disgruntled fans.
