Having said that, most of the reason the Bills are so profitable is they have no debt. A new stadium would seriously cut into that profit margin.

I think people tend to forget how much land area a new stadium plus parking would take up. Unless we're comfortable giving up tailgating to have parking garages, the amount of surface parking needed is gigantic. Over in OP, the parking lots take about 8 times the area of the stadium itself. Even using existing parking areas downtown that normally wouldn't be used on Sundays, I still can't see how there's enough room to do that downtown.
Well, Cleveland does it, somehow.
