Fan Advisory Board--Suggestions?

Recommended Posts

OKay, folks...yours truly is going to participate in the Fan Advisory Board for the next two years. The first meeting for this group is coming up July 17th. Any suggestions you have for game days would be greatly appreciated. I harp on a few, but my main issues will be:

 

1) play Red-Zone on one of the boards during TV timeouts. PLay the network halftime show as well.

 

2) Perform any ceremonies, especially the Thurmal ceremony this year..pre game.  Not fair to either honoree or fans to do it at halftime.

 

3) Not a Bills rule, but I would like to see the NFL stop blocking streams of games within 1 mile of the stadium. Minor issue, but sometimes I want to watch a different 4 PM game than what is on the local channel in the post-game tailgate. And one year we had trouble getting the early London game as well.

 

4) cleaner bus lot..

 

Any suggestions welcome. They want us to submit some ideas for the first meeting, thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Put a plaque on your personal crapper in the upper deck!  This works on so many levels. 

 

I like all your suggestions, especially #1. Is there anything that precludes that? When you get to games live you remember all those long breaks.

#2 is a biggie. I miss that TV does has long since done away with pregame ceremony coverage in any aspect.

I would like these to be as focused as possible on the player or players of the Day.

So pregame is really the best window with the most focused fans and best intention. half time ya gotta pee !

I fully agree on #2 (Plenz’s traditional #2?  That’s a different #2.....no comment beyond suggesting the plaque). I think the problem with pre-game may be folks strolling in late. At the same time, if you’re peeing or getting a refill, your still not there. If it’s significant like Thurman, I’d make a point of being present.

I am sure the NFL has an issue with another game taking away from the game in front of you..but with gambling becoming legalI am hoping they realize people at games should not have a lesser experience than the people in front of a TV

My advice to the fan advisory board......disband it.

Why? You can thank the board for cans, beer to the 3rd period, better wifi...all great stuff. i am sure @JÂy RÛßeÒcan talk about it much better than I.

opener 2014..Pegulas win the bid, not yet approved ..Kelly gives pregame speech..no disruption to warm up. Pats game after Peguals take over, pregame ceremony..no disruption to warmup. It is easy for them to do.

only people who come in late are the idiots who need to shotgun another beer..no loss there. As mentioned above..place was 90% filled for Jimbo at 12:45..will be for Thurmal as well.Good reason to get people in on a Monday night too...

That is quite the cantankerous burr you have in your saddle. 

 

No hostler can help you with that.

Turn the volume down abut 700 decibels on the stadium sound system. 

 

Fewer attempts to entertain me via the jumbotron (or whatever we call them now), the constant contests, screaming morons in commercials, trivia is taxing. Seriously. I like to chat with people in my section about the game during timeouts, can't because it's so goddamn loud and constant. 

 

Fines the hell out of people in the lots who are pigs. Party your a$$es off but have some goddamn pride and pick up after yourself. The bus lot is a team and fan embarrassment.

Is there a train horn formula? We can keep it to some extent, but can we do a little math on that one?

Not profound but: In the lower bowl the seats are held together with bolts that are too long. They stick out at knee level and I jab my knee with this if I am not careful. Whoever did that job used bolts that were plainly too long.

 

Also some kind of resolution between standers and sitters. I am sitting in a $350 seat down in front and a couple kids drink and 20 want to stand the whole game. Refuse any requests to please sit down. Im not 20 😕

 

Im my day we had batteries we could throw to settle the matter but nowadays they take away all the good projectiles at the gates.

 

This two jerks got kicked out at halftime but everyone behind them had to put up with that for the whole first half.

 

They should just nail it down if you can or can't stand all game and where. That way I would know to buy a seat or not and where is all Im saying.

Congrats PLenz!  Good to see TBD is still repped in the FAB!  I really miss it...

 

please do post-meeting reports.  I was always sure to clarify what could or could not be shared as topics were covered in meetings.

My $.02...no way #2 will happen.  NFL too strict on starting times because of TV and those ceremonies take at least 10 minutes.  Coaches won't want players going out to stand around for this pre-game "distraction" and a large number of fans don't get into the stadium early enough as well.

 

Completely agree that they don't nearly take advantage of all of those extra big screens in the stadium now.  There's got to be some reason for that because it makes too much sense from a fan perspective.

They did the Kelly cancer free ceremony,, and the Paegula ceremony, before the game. Thats why I am hoping for the same
