Hunt: "Ralph had a significant impact on the evolution of pro football"

Statement from Kansas City Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt on the passing of Buffalo Bills Owner Ralph Wilson Jr.

“On behalf of my family and the entire Chiefs organization, we’d like to express our deepest sympathies to the Wilson family and the Buffalo Bills. Ralph had a significant impact on the evolution of pro football. He took risks and made decisions that helped mold the NFL into what it is today. As two of the original members of the AFL’s Foolish Club, my father and Ralph shared a unique bond and a special friendship. I had the privilege of knowing Ralph and his family my entire life. His sense of humor was extraordinary and his passion for the Buffalo Bills was remarkable. He was a gentleman and a family man and will be missed dearly.”
