A report out of New York late Friday night claimed rocker Jon Bon Jovi has been kicked out of the Toronto group trying to buy the Buffalo Bills.

While it might well be true the bid group has splintered, or that some or all of its three principals -- Bon Jovi, MLSE chairman Larry Tanenbaum and Rogers Communications deputy chairman Edward Rogers (representing his family) -- have packed it in, it is highly unlikely that the latter two booted out Bon Jovi, as the New York Post alleges.

Multiple sources for months have told QMI Agency that Bon Jovi has run, navigated and overseen every decision at every step of the process within the Toronto bid group from the get-go.

The Post report would be akin to Bon Jovi leaving the rock group he formed but someone reporting he got booted out of it.

But it would be no surprise if Bon Jovi has quit the group. If true, sources close to the Toronto group were unaware of it late Friday night. One severely doubted the report.

QMI reported exclusively last week that Bon Jovi and his deep-pocketed Toronto backers were reassessing whether even to continue in their pursuit of the NFL team.
