March 10 (UPI) -- In 2014, the Buffalo Bills made an interesting addition to its personnel: a pool table and video games.

New coach Sean McDermott made a move before the start of the new league year to remove those assets from the equation.

"This is a business," McDermott told reporters Thursday. "We talk about, and you've heard me say this before, earning the right to win. We've got to stay focused on the task at hand and I'm all for, as we mentioned, the chemistry and building that chemistry in that locker room. That's a big part of it, yet we have to make sure we stay focused on the task at hand and that means earn the right to win on a daily basis. I don't believe that playing video games in the locker room is part of earning the right to win. We're going to be a focused, disciplined and accountable football team and I believe you do it one day at a time."

The fun lasted from coach Doug Marrone through Rex Ryan's tenure. The team has placed better than third in the AFC East just once since 2007. The Bills also had a Ping-Pong table and an air hockey table. Only the Ping-Pong table is expected to remain with the Bills, according to reports.

McDermott is keeping the Ping-Pong table around to help with the team's ball skills.

The pool table is currently up for auction with a current bid of $2,000.
