Not sure use to go to a game year at the Ralph, I live outta town.  Been to Old RFK, Ravens, Foxboro and San Fran... 1st game at old Rock Pile in 70s vs Cincinnati.... OJ ran for a lot of yards but Bills lost something like 42-38?  Went to games during Knox's nuts years... maybe 30-40 over the years...

probably around 40. I've had the opportunity to see them play some away games, too. At the Jets in the old meadowlands, Cincinnati, and here in Carolina. This coming week will be my third Bills game here.

Probably 75?  Tons in the 90s when my dad had seasons. Last 15 years in Charlotte not so many.

Gosh.  I'm reading and seeing that some of you have been to hundreds of games.  I definitely envy you all.  My dad was born and raised in Buffalo and I grew up following his footsteps on becoming a fan.  With that said, I've never even been to Buffalo (except as an infant), therefore, I have not seen any home games.  Hopefully one day i'll get there.  As a kid, I lived close to Indy, so when the Bills and Colts were in the same division, I'd go to those games every year.  When I was stationed in Jax, I went to 3 games when the Bills were in town.  I haven't been to a game in a while since i'm always moving, but now that i'm in Philly for the next 3 years, I plan on going each time the Bills are in New York, assuming I don't have to work.

About 25.  It's a little bit of a pain in the butt to drive in from Rochester.  Turns into an all day affair.  Wish it was a little closer.

Yeah, that sounds like a brutal commute.

Just 3.

@ San Antonio! When they played the Saints who were relocated due to Hurricane Katrina in 2005. I think Losman passed for less than 100 yards.

@ San Fran, which was a slaughter-fest in 2012.

EJ's rookie year, home comeback win over Carolina in 2013. Going to the stadium for the first time was like a religious experience, having lived the majority of my life thousands of miles away and being a fan since I was a kid.

 

 

I was at that game VS the Niners.  My daughter wanted to go for her 15th birthday (live in Sacramento).  She still had a great time as it was her 1st game.

When I lived in WNY attended every home game from 1973 thru 1985 when I moved to NC.  Since than have averaged 1 a year so somewhere around 120 my older brother who spans our season tickets has probably missed 30 home games since 1973 when he was off to law school but has gone to,Super Bowl and a few other away games

20, traveling from Western Maryland. Last year was my first as a season-ticket holder. 10 hours of driving on Sundays got to be a little much.

Nowhere near as many as I would have liked.

 

2006 Miami at Buffalo

2007 Denver at buffalo

2007 Dallas at buffalo

2007 buffalo at washington

2009 Cleveland at buffalo (lucky me. 8 hour drive for that?)

2011 Philly at Buffalo (great game and proposed to my wife that weekend at Niagara Falls, probably like everyone else who visits) 

2013 NE at Buffalo

 

Been to a couple preseason games (2x at Washington and one at Baltimore) 

 

Been to a few non-Bills games. 

 

1998 Minnesota at Baltimore

2001 Cowboys at Redskins

2010 Cowboys at Redskins

 

And the worst? I was so confident buffalo was making the playoffs in 2004 that I bought tickets to the Steelers home playoff game in the divisional round.  My best friend is a Steelers fan.  Anyways, we obviously didn’t make it so I ended up going anyways for the Jets at Steelers.  It was freezing that weekend, but it was a good game.  Jets missed a FG to win (or tie, I don’t remember). So that’s my only playoff game.  That’s what I get for being so confident.  The dumb part is I was certain we would beat the Steelers backups (who wasn’t), and win the first round game (maybe would’ve been the Chargers?). Oh well, one day I’ll see a playoff game in person.

What an awesome experience for your first home game. Everything was electric, perfect fall day, last second win, new quarterback that didn't choke on the final drive. I was so psyched when we drafted EJ and was sure this game proved me right as all my friends gave me grief for loving the pick. Unfortunately it turned out to be his one shinning moment as a Bill.

 

200 give or take for me, including all home playoff games. I also was one of the million that stayed for the entire comeback game.

For me it's easily well over 200 from '75 to 2009, with road games and Super Bowl 25 sprinkled in. 

 

Since 2009...man..I think 3.

 

Just life, ya know.

on a side note I do know quite a few diehard Bills fans whom have Never been to a home Bills game....I pity the fools  

Count me in that lot.   Being born and raised outside of Buffalo, by transplanted parents, I've never made it to a Bills game in Buffalo.  One day.. I will.    

 

I've seen them play once each in Miami, Nashville, and HOF game in Canton.   I have tickets to see them again this fall in Nashville (with my folks).   So... It will be 4 games this year.

200 or so, no plans to ever return unless it coincides with a business road thing

I'm guessing the number is right around 100, give or take.

 

A handful of games growing up, then all games from 90-93, and then about 2-3 per season since then.

 

Road stadiums:  Shea, Giants Stadium, Tennessee, Carolina, Miami, Atlanta (Fulton County Stadium and Georgia Dome), DC, Baltimore

I give the only standard verification that I ever give that I was in attendance...I was lucky enough to be in a box on that date.

 

No matter how bad it was getting there is very little chance I am walking out of my own volition on beer, wings, booze, soda, peanuts, cheese, dip, pizza and beef on weck.

 

...even if the rapture were upon us I'd still be thinking I should stick around for wings.

I think that’s it’s in the range of 200. It’s maybe 15 on the road and 185 at home. I really don’t know though. It’s somewhere around there.
