The Binghamton area is a pretty varied melting pot of favored teams. Most are Giants fans (the Super Bowl runs had a lot to do with that), then Bills and Steelers seem to be the next popular, then Jets, and from there is a pretty crazy mix.

 

It’s a bit of a stretch but I’m close enough to say yes I think.

In Allegany County it's definitely Bills country. Same for when I was growing up in Rochester. When I lived in Syracuse it seemed evenly split among Bills, Jets and Giants.

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 

I’m also in the Utica area. A lot of Giants and Bills fans, a smaller number of Jets fans, and a mixture of a few fans of other random teams. In general, I think I see more shirts, hats, license plate frames, and stickers for the Bills than for any other teams. However, if the Jets or Giants start to win, then that could change. 

My father in law (in his eighties) is a Giants fan because they aren’t from that new fangled, upstart AFL.

I honestly think there are more Bills fans than Falcons fans in Atlanta.  I went to the 2017 game and man that was embarrassing for the home team.

It was the BEST!  Most of the falcons fans who were there weren't even watching the game

LA my whole life. Mostly Raider fans here but Rams base are starting to return. Chargers lagging behind. The fan base here is so mixed, everyone follows a different team. Still a decent Bills following in both LA and SD, but not like it was 25 years ago.

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

Yeah, their all over the highway on the way back to New England after the game.  I see them in the rest stops.

 

I hope they have really long faces this year.

Interesting poll result.

 

Today I learned: 60% of TBD readers are from out of town.

 

Most of those are probably Ex-Pats. Though there are surely some who follow the Bills never having lived here--like Pancho Billa.

Lived in Crotchfester from 1985 till 2018.  Had season tixs from 1985 till 2008.  Now is sunny Florida where there are almost NO taxes compared to King Cuomo's reign.  He made me leave.

I was there, too.   What I remember best was leaving the stadium, with Bills fans cheering and chanting and high fiving.  It was SO cool.

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.  

I'm also from Ct, born and raised among Jet, Giants, and not until 2001 Patriot fans.

 

Now semi-retired and live among Jaguar fans. Ugh!!!!

 

Die hard, true blue since 1981. Go Bills!!!!

Originally South Buffalo, now an hour south of DC. Got stationed at Quantico, VA in the late 90's and stayed in the area.

 

If anyone travels to Northern VA, I highly recommend Jimmy's Old Town Tavern in Herndon, VA. It's a great place to watch Bills games, great food (beef on weck, wings, Canadian beer, etc...)

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.

 

Where in VA?

Sounds like drugs were involved somewhere along the line.

Left WNY for school when I was 17, but spent 18 years in “Bills Country South”, Florida. If you’re wondering where everybody went, there’s a good start! I’ve been to a few Bills games in Jax, and Jags fans have to be embarrassed by how we represent compared to what they offer. 

 

Now live in Atlanta in the land of.....college football fans. I think some people watch the NFL team too, on occasion.
