Utica, yes

I tended to think of that as more Giants country.  My aunt that married into the family was from there and her whole family were Giants fans

Nope, Roswell, GA which is north of Atlanta. There are plenty of Bills fans here in the metro and we were heard loud and clear at the Falcons-Bills game here. Matt Ryan even said, "I guess the Bills mafia is real."

I am in Ontario, but much closer to Detroit than Buffalo.  The fan base here is pretty diverse, with fans of the Lions, Packers, Steelers, 49ers, Patriots and Bills.  There are not enough fans of any one team to dominate the region.  

 

To be fair, it was the marketing strategy of the Bills to play their games on Global TV (then CTV and City TV) every week, beginning in the late 90's that picked me up as a fan.  Watching the same team, week after week sucked me in and now I'm obsessed with all things Bills related 365 days per year.  My sons are also diehard fans of the Bills as well.

I'm from Syracuse and in my experience it seems 50/50 Bills & Giants. I knew one Jets fan at my old job but that's about it

Grew up in the Town of Tonawanda, but now live in Carmel IN just north of Indy. Not many Bills fans around here but we're vocal!

I'm in Connecticut.  Definitely not Bills' territory.

 

Did you know that the Bills won't sell season tickets to purchasers outside "Bills' territory"?   I think they won't sell to anyone who's address is more than 200 miles from Orchard Park, or something like that.   If you call and ask for season tickets, they start by asking your zip code.  Current season ticket holders are grandfathered.  

Are you sure about that?   It is not as if season tickets are flying off the shelf or am I worng on that.  I guess they can sel the tickets they way they want to.

That looks even more official than my Bills T-shirts!

Syracuse is a mix of fans from most teams, so I answered No. Even the Bills have pulled back a lot from years ago with their advertising and events from the area.

I live in Tallahassee Florida. My house is Bills Country and I see a few fans but this place is a college town, FSU, and it never really cares about the NFL.

I'm in St. Catharines over by the Niagara Falls border, and the spread is pretty much the same here excluding Detroit and San Fran.  I would love for there to be more of a public Bills presence here including Bills Backers bars considering our proximity to Buffalo, but I guess football culture isn't as engrained here on this side of the border.

Yes, unless they've changed the policy.   

 

The theory is that the distant season-ticket holders aren't fans, they're investors.  They're buying tickets to scalp on StubHub, etc.   Bills don't want fans of visiting teams to have access to a lot of tickets.  They figure that if someone local is buying the tickets, he's buying them to attend games.   Plus, they want the tickets to sell to real fans when they get good.  If a bunch of NYC guys own season tickets and the Bills and Jets are the two powers in the AFC East in five years, there will be tons of Jets fans at New Era for the Jets game.  McBeane don't want that.
