I say yes.  Although I live in Brooklyn, I get a kick out of asking Jets' & Giants' fans which state their teams play in.  Technically, there's only one team that calls NY home.

Yeh, I work in Yonkers and have the same kind of fun...  So you root for Jersey teams.... ha ha ha....

Eagle Bay, just north of Old Forge.  Kinda lied though. Wasn't born but moved there when I was 2.

Eagle Bay is a great area!  Do you live there year round?  Not many people can say that.

When our kids were young, we would rent a place for a week in the summer.

We used to climb Rocky Mt. almost every year (best view for the least effort in The Adirondacks).

Lately, with my bad knees and my wife’s fear of falling, we have been circling Moss Lake instead. 

My kids still talk about the donut shop, 25 years later. 

We love going to the Big Moose Inn for dinner.

I live in Columbus, OH which is a College Football town and does not have one main NFL team that it supports. It’s a decent mix of nfl fan bases here but no dominant one. Lots of Steelers, Bengals, Browns but if you go to a sports bar on Sunday afternoon in the fall there are a multitude of jerseys. 

 

ok so its not just a south thing then...must be just cuz I grew up in Rochester area which has no big colleges near by...when I moved down here to TN I coudln't believe how much college football ruled over NFL football...I kinda wish NY had that big school to be a fan of

I live 5 hours east of Orchard Park and 3.5 hours north of NYC and Boston.

 

Mostly Giants country.  Some Jets and Pats (more Pats than Jets due to bandwagoners).

 

After Josh Allen was drafted, I have noticed a lot more Bills hats, shirts, jerseys, license plate frames, etc.  Looks like formerly ashamed Bills fans are starting to become proud again.

 

Still outnumbered by Giants fans, though.

Basically the same here. Most of the younger crowd in the 1000 Island region are Pats fans but lots of Giants.

Raised in WNY. Left to seek my fortune and fame in 1977 and have faithfully followed the Bills from many different locations around the country. I live in Wake Forest, NC, now, which is the land of college basketball.

I am back in WNY for now but not for much longer.  Thankfully, before the snow falls again I am headed to a warmer climate.  House #9 for the wifey and me (though it’s looking more and more like we may go for a condo with this move).

I used to live there, grew up there and went to school in Old Forge.  Live in Rochester now.  Just three hours away though so I visit when I can.  My folks have owned a small tourist shop in Eagle Bay for about 30 years now.  The best man at my wedding is the head chef at Big Moose Inn.

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...

Welcome aboard!

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.

Lots are leaving the state for the same reason. Now farmers will be shutting barn doors. It is sad! Im thinking Im out of here when I retire.

I grew up in Buffalo and I remember everyone I knew loved Notre dame. That was in the 80s, early 90s. Partly because they were really good then and probably the catholic thing. My dad still lives there and still follows ND.

Grew up in Rochester, now live in the North Country.  Is that Bills territory?  It depends on whether Fox is slated to carry the game but decides to broadcast an NFC match up instead.  Had to head to the local sports bar for last year's Lions game.

I'm now in the Rochester area - firmly in Bills territory.  Until several months ago, I was in the "Twin Tiers" area near Bath and Corning.  They are probably 50/50 Bills/Giants.That was the weakest Bills fan area I've ever been in.

I live in the original Buffalo Bill's territory,,,, northwest Wyoming.

I live in the other side of Wyoming, the northeast side.  Near Custer’s rash decision:).   I became a Bills fan the moment Josh Allen was drafted by Buffalo.

I lived in Allegany County in the 70's. Most people (young and retirees) move away from there, so I'm surprised you moved to there after Rochester and Syracuse. What part?

 

Houghton - my wife is from the area and still has quite a bit of family here. We both work at the college.

Interesting poll results.  I kinda expected the opposite.  

 

Also, I live in Bills country, about an hour north of Orchard Park.

Born in England, raised in Buffalo, at 18 joined Navy. Came back after a 6 year stint, couldn't find decent work in early 90's. Moved to Chitcago for 8yrs, Vegas for 8 now been in Phoenix for 15. Brains been fried from the heat and a few other things.  Not sure if I could move back cause I'm looking for a sweatshirt when the temp gets down to 70. But everywhere I go its Bill's country.

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. 

 

My friend lives in Houston and has season tickets sent to him every year.
