Bills v.s. Jets at the meadowlands?

Recommended Posts

How rowdy does it get at the meadowlands?They have a bus tour right now for the Bill's vs jets opening day. I have been to many Bill's games in the past but I have never been to an opposing stadium.

 

The reason I ask is I would love to buy a good friend a ticket and go together as he has just successfully completed a year after bone marrow for leukemia. I just dont want to do it if he is going to be uncomfortable. 

 

The two Bill's vs jets games I've been to in buffalo were pretty wild and alot of fights which wouldnt bother me normally. but I'd hate to subject him to that with his circumstances.

I've been once and it was a miserable experience.


Edit: @GG in the stands, not in the lots ;)

Jets' fans at home are obnoxious drunk disrespectful morons. And those are their redeeming qualities 😋.

 

Over the years I've been to several games wearing my Bills jersey and have had a few things said but never over the line, but close enough. If the line is crossed, I would have no qualms dealing with them appropriately. That said, not sure it would be a good place to take your friend given his situation unless you go without wearing the colors. Just my 2 cents.

If you see a dollar bill lying there on the concourse, do not stop and bend down to pick it up

I have gone to a lot of jets games, the only real bad time is a night game when the drunk quotient is real high. Beyind that very few issues.

 

Now Giants fans are tame compare to Jets fans.

 

The worst thing about jets games is that constant moronic chant J E T S  Jets Jets

 

To be brutally honest, Bills fans are 2x-3x more obnoxious than Jets fans.

Jets and Philly were miserable fan bases that would attack smaller opposing  fans without any provocation

Great news for your friend, that must be a relief. Maybe ask him to ask his oncologist if it's safe to be exposed to that many people at once. Have fun if you go!

Jets fans are pretty obnoxious and drunk.  I moved near MetLife 5 years ago and go to all of the Bills vs Jets games here.  The Bills Backers groups in NYC and north Jersey throw a great tailgate.  Bills fans take over a big part of a parking lot.  If you end up going to the game, make sure you get in touch with some of the local fans to find out where the Bills fans will be tailgating!

I went last year to the 41-10 route and actually had a great time. Had large groups of Jets fans tailgating all around us but they were all friendly. A few even joined in and played some rounds on my Bills cornhole boards.  I thought the fans in the stands were respectful as well. No one gave us a hard time even with me screaming the shout song after what seemed like every other play. Even took turns buying a round of drinks for my fiance and two older Jets fans who were sitting behind us.

I'm born and raised in North Jersey . Been going to the Meadowlands with my buddies since I'm 18 , 10 years . I guess cause we roll pretty deep and I'm literally the only Bills fan in the group , I've never had issues but have seen other fans get into it. 

The tailgating is nowhere near Orchard Park. Hey fans seem to cause alot of issues in the stands, I've actually approached two groups , with my buddy Jet fans and told them they're with us and they laid off. 

I'll be there week 1 & 2 if anyone has questions, want to meet up or have any Bills tailgating sessions please hmu!

I was going to go, but I decided to go to the Giants game the next week instead, on the advice of several Jets and Giants fans.

That's definitely the better choice of the two. Giants fans are much more hospitable.

Friends don’t take friends to New Jersey.  😋

 

 

Just kidding (mostly). I don’t have any experience attending a game there, but it certainly is an awesome gesture on your part, even if it never occurs.

Considering I almost pummeled a Jets fan into dust at a Bills HOME game for spitting on fans sitting around him (including women and kids), I shudder to think how they act amongst their own, fellow chuds.

Lol!! I saw some poor sap get spit on from above a while back. Bunch of AHoles...

I went to a Jets and Giants game there the same year quite a few years back. The two are like night and day. Giants fans are generally older and more refined and don't mind holding a civil, banter filled conversation. Jets fans are just the worst.

I have been to the games at the Meadowlands the last three years including the Thursday night game and I was wearing Bills' colors.

 

Each time the Jets fans obviously got into a back and forth dialogue but it was all good.  I found them friendly and Jets fans bought my son-in-law and I a round of beer at the night game.

 

The cool thing is the train lets you off right at the stadium.

 

Now, perhaps it was my age or the fact that I interacted positively with Jets fans but absolutely no problems unless you can't take good natured rivalry teasing.

 

Debating doing both the Jets and Giants games this year.

I was at Jets games twice at least 10 years ago as a neutral fan in the old Giants Stadium.  They weren't playing the Bills those games.

 

Fans were loud and had colorful language but nothing too over the top/hostile.

I go to around 3 away games per year.....the Meadowlands for the Jets is one I avoid. I have been to 5 games and I have left there smelling like old beer every time but once - the time I wore a green sweetshirt.

Been to a lot of away games including multiple at NYJ.  If you behave yourself the chances of there being an issue are very small. 

 

If youre really concerned pony up for nicer seats. The more expensive the seat the less likely you are to have an issue. But I would not be worried myself.

Exactly. The better the seat, the less trouble. I have been to the last 4 or 5 Bills at Jets games. Many night affairs. We have always sat around the 30 yard line and basically no issues. No matter where you go, you will get a wise guy once in a while. 

Before the game in the parking lot, it has always been cordial wherever I have seen an away game - Jets included. After the game, leave and don't look to mingle.  

To put it in perspective - Would you recommend someone go to a Bills home game wearing the other team colors and sit in the end zone?
