Staff Hurt By Lockout: It appears the lockout is hurting the administrative staff of the Bills. There are no layoffs or furloughs at this time but there are pay cuts for all staff. Everyone is affected and the percentage of cut goes up as you go up the organizational ladder. Coaches had their pay cut too but according to their contracts they get that money back if no games are lost.

Bills Release Statement: With the NFL shutdown by a lockout and the decertification of the union, Bills CEO Russ Brandon released a statement yesterday saying the administration is still working towards the draft and continuing day to day operations. His statement said in part, "We share our fans' disappointment with the news on Friday that the NFLPA has filed for decertification and a work stoppage has begun. We remain hopeful that a new and fair agreement can be reached in time to avoid any significant disruption to our preparations for the 2011 season. We believe that the quickest way to a fair agreement for everyone -- players, teams and fans -- is through negotiations facilitated by the mediator and not through litigation." The Bills announced their second annual premium seat holder and state of the Bills event will take place on March 28th. They will also hold their annual draft party.
