By now you may have been asked to change your Facebook profile to an anti-Bon Jovi poster. Or you may have signed a petition stating that you will never attend a game in Toronto if “his Joviness” buys the Bills and moves them across the border. Whatever you have done to make a stand against the perfumed ponce, the founding members of “Bon Jovi Free Zone”, Sonntag and Charles Pellien, Paul Roorda and Anthony Lynch, salute you and your pro Buffalo stance.
“We’ve had it with Jon Bon Jovi and his Toronto ownership group working to steal our team,” 12thManThunder.com co-founder Charles Sonntag said. “There are thousands of fans that agree with us, so we decided to start the “Bon Jovi Free Zone” promotion to let him and the poachers in Toronto know that we won’t just stand by and let them move the Bills to Toronto. We’re asking Buffalo area bars and restaurants to contact us and we’ll give them a free poster to show their commitment to banning Bon Jovi music from their premises.”
The group is giving out free “Bon Jovi Free Zone” posters to bars and restaurants all over the city, and asking that the establishments take the band’s songs off rotation (if they were somehow on it to begin with). Even local radio stations are getting in on the banning game, including the Shredd and Ragan Show 103.3 The Edge.
“Our group has been convinced for weeks that the Toronto fix is in with the NFL owners. Yesterday’s announcement by owners Jerry Jones and John Mara proves that Bon Jovi has been quietly lobbying them for years to take away our team,” Sontagg said. “The sooner fans understand the conspiracy to buy and move our team, the sooner fans can all stand up and maybe stop it.”
You can sign the petition and catch up on anti-Jovi updates at this website. A public Bon Jovi record burning has been discussed by some fans – the fire would be ignited with hairspray for good measure.
As for die-hard Bills’ fans ever supporting the team in Toronto… “Not one ticket – count us out!” is the group’s simple message. See Facebook for more hair bashing ammo.
