One more point on the Buffalo metro area...it has remained nearly the same size for the past 40 years. The city has lost a tremendous amount of its population, but it has primarily been a move to the 'burbs. It is also one of the most negatively skewed metro areas in the country, with only Erie and Niagara counties being included in the number, despite an economic impact reach far beyond those those two counties. The Bills and Sabres have both had to overcome these misleading numbers, and a general lack of understanding by outsiders of the sports demographics in WNY. Buffalo and Rochester are as close to 100% behind both teams as a city could get, and at least 50% of the Syracuse area. That's 2.5 million people, without even leaving the state.
