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 

 

My dad's family are from Utica.  Its Giants country.  In the 90s is was definitely disputed territory though.

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."

 

That game was so much fun.

 

Also, definitely NOT photoshopped!

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

I think of the Jets as being a Long Island thing. I don't think it goes much into upstate or NJ.

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. 

We have a lot of 'cuse fans here in wny...we get all of the games on the radio and the local tv coverage.

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 reside in the Town of Tonawanda. I am eating my lunch watching hole number 4 at Brighton Golf Course...

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.  

Spent some time there. Only good thing was NY and CT broadcast got me four Bills games a year. If they played the Giants it was an added bonus! Now I have D TV but in those days it did not exist.

I'm roughly 5 miles away from where two other teams play, so, no. I did live in Buffalo for 8 years during college and beyond, before moving back to the NYC metro where I grew up.

Nope. I was born and raised in Rochester, which would be a "Yes" in your poll. These days, though, I reside in Portland, Oregon. I see maybe one other Bills fan per month during the offseason.

Where do you watch games in portland?  My in laws live in Tigard and we may be relocating there eventually

I practically lived at Brighton when I was a kid.  Junior club champion, 1972.  And I taught the kids summer program for the Rec Department for several years back in the 70's

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.

Hey neighbor, I was born and raised in Buffalo(West Side!!) and moved to Tally in the middle of our Super Bowl run in '92. Definitely a college town just bordering on being too small, but I like it. There is actually a change in seasons with cooler weather after October. During the season, you'll see a diverse NFL crowd at The Corner Pocket. I see jerseys and hats from different teams. Yes, there is an annoying Pats fan that shows up once in a while.

No. 

Britain. 

Been a fan of the Bills for 30+ years. Only seen them play live twice. Once in Orchard Park (loss to the Texans in 2009) and the Wembley loss to the Jags. 

I’ll be back...

..keep your eye out for poster named Gunner Bill...very astute football guy from the UK as well................

Bills territory/Bills Country. It’s a state of mind more than geology. Born & raised in WNY, been a fan from their inception. I now live in significantly better climate -by choice, but still attend a game live from time to time and my fandom is as rabid as ever.

Why the reason for the inquisition?

There’s a certain part of me that was looking for a work distraction 😆

 

But no I have always wondered if the boards here carry a more local vs out of town vibe.  Some great feedback so far

Born & raised in WNY but left many years ago after getting my degrees since other parts of the country had more opportunities. Still return fairly often as long-time season ticket holder & my parents & sisters live in WNY. One sis has a house on Sheldon Rd very close to the stadium where cars park on game day. This makes it super convenient for us when we fly or drive for games.

Live in central VA now but both of my grown sons are avid Bills fans! Living here also provided the opportunity (?) to travel with @plenzmd1to the playoff game at Jags.

That's to stop all the Patriots fans who buy our seasons at a fraction of the cost of theirs

 

Then resell every game and make money while going to the Patriots at Bills
