Marker On Bills fans’ behavior, team nicknames and a lost mascot [1:57 AM]
Rochester Business Journal reports: 'To me, the film is a huge black eye for Buffalo, and an insult to the majority of Bills fans who care deeply about their team and behave in a more responsible manner. This flick focuses on a faction of crazies looking for their 15 minutes of fame. (Or should I say their 15 minutes of infamy?) It’s filled with selfie-absorbed, liquored-up people hoping their juvenile behavior goes viral.'

Marker Bills at RB: LeSean McCoy still looks to be at the top of his game [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The backfield did take a hit when the Bills, through some front-office bumbling, allowed standout reserve Mike Gillislee to join the New England Patriots as a restricted free agent.
