- Better beer options

- Gates open 30 minutes earlier

- Cell phone charging station 

- 12 month payment plans

all good..gates open 11:30 now though correct? Cant see many people in there at 11. I also think they should have some local beer vendors, at least guys with cans. I love the Resurgence Blood Orange Saison.. it's in a can too   They do serve the One Buffalo in the Clubs(shocking its One Buffalo)..at least expand that to the concourses!

My vote would be to please get rid of the train horn.  I hate at the stadium and on. TV.  

That seems to be very popular suggestion..

Note sure if feasable or how it would work, but a team regulated "Ball Burglar" program would be pretty cool.

 

I know several players and former players either have their own charities or charities that they endorse, and I always thought that was a cool way for fans to stay "engaged" in the game, while doing something positve. I'm sure there's a way to up link with Hunter's Hope or some other charitable organization. Fans sign up with a credit card, and donate, say, $5 (or however much they choose) for every FR or INT by the Bills defense throughout the season. If 1,000 people sign up at $5 a pop, and the Bills create 20 turnovers, that's a $100,000 contribution.

 

Our fans got a lot of good publicity after the Dalton/Boyd TD donations, although it doesn't completely wash away the stigma that all Bills fans are all just flaming table crashing drunkards, but it helps...perhaps we could come up with something more permanent and well known throughout the league, instead of a one-time event. 

This is really cool idea.

Back when I was on the FAB they were talking about getting people into the stadium earlier.  We suggested running some kind of tailgate inside the gates with beer, food, music, activities, alumni.  They need some kind of draw to get people to leave the lots and get in there.

But they cant start selling beer to noon right? That was the law they wanted the exception for, but New York would not grant it. 

 

So its you can buy beer in a store now I believe at 9 AM Sunday, but a bar cant sell you beer till noon..i think that's it

1.) No more train whistle. Can't stand it.

2.) Allow Gate 1 for general entry. I hated it when they changed it to Press only etc.

3.) make all the wings boned rather than boneless for the masses. It ain't a wing when it boneless (white meat too) . yuck.

4.) Invite Sabretooth for a game (or two). When the sabres aren't playing, of course. He can be Billy's guest.  The Sabres shoud have a street hockey game that day in

one of the Lots. Or at Halftime. There would me a massive crowd for that.

Bring back the Jills with smaller outfits.  Re-open BBMB and have a public stoning of the old moderators.

How about a section dedicated to people who promise to sit during the start of every play. 

 

I'd support your idea 100%.  Due to age, medical issues, etc. not all fans can stand to watch the game.

As many have said, the train horn has to go.  It's played way too much. 

 

You know what else grinds my gears...hearing Seven Nation Army by the White Stripes and the stupid chant that goes with it a dozen times per game.  It's old and not original at all.  Time to find a new song or sound effect.

I agree with that

 

In general, the game presentation from the introductions to the end hasnt changed in about 10-14 years.  I guess Russ Brandon was busy doing other things

they should do more to promote the designated driver program

 

They have kiosks up all over the place.

 

The Bills won that program 3 or 4 years straight,you sign up and get a free bottle of pop with your coupon and yellow bracelet.

How long has the train horn been around? I know it annoyed me from Day One, but I don’t remember when it started. Someone mentioned the sound of buffaloes rumbling (sorry, I’m too lazy to go back for details), but I’d think that would be an improvement. Of course, a large Whoopi Cusion noise might also be an improvement.

There actually is a Uber pickup zone. I think it's by the Big Tree Inn.

 

I always try to think of suggestions but never do. Game day is pretty much fine with me. The WiFi still sucks but what are you going to do with 70K trying to log on at once?

 

Cool - I have never seen that - good to know

I disagree. I don't live in the area but try to make it up once a year and when I hear that song it always reminds me of the games.

Yes he did about COACHING and was brought in a GM because previous GM was not listening to fans and they were wearing bags and being thrown out of game for signs.

 

Listening to fans about game experience: good

Listening to fans about draft, coaches, game: bad

During the Indy snow game we had a bunch of kids with us and had to leave the game early because there was literally NOWHERE to warm up inside the hallways.

 

Club seats and boxes, no issue with heat obviously, but they need to install some radiant heaters in the main hallways.  We helped a girl that was borderline hypothermic, crying in the stairwell she was so cold.  

 

I know that was an exceptionally brutal storm, but to not have a single place to stand for 10 minutes and warm up was downright dangerous.  I'm against a new stadium, but support some logical improvements like heaters.

Let the crowd make the noise. I’m convinced that the train horn quiets the crowd. We get quiet waiting for it to stop. It’s awful and has nothingn to do with Buffalo. 

 

If they are going to pump a sound sound make it the rumbling buffalo stampede, which when played with them barreling through the snow, was ALWAYS the best opening for the team entry into the stadium.
