Pittsford, N.Y. (WKBW) As the process of selecting a new team owner for the Buffalo Bills continues, thousands of fans are taking stronger action to make sure that the Bills trustees know how they feel about any owner who might want to move the team.

Tuesday afternoon, a fan support group called "Bills Fan Thunder" delivered 13,000 petitions to Buffalo Bills training camp at St. John Fisher College.

The petitions promise total support for the team if it stays in WNY, but warns of a boycott if it is sold to any owner who fans feel might be looking to move it elsewhere.

Of utmost concern to "Bills Fan Thunder" is Jon Bon Jovi and the Toronto group including Rogers Communications.

"We are calling for Bon Jovi to back off. It is time for him to drop out of this race. He is making a fool of himself, and two cities (Buffalo & Toronto) now hate him.” said "Bills Fan Thunder" Co-Founder Charles Pellien.
