It’s a question I’m going to guess most members at TBD have.   Maybe around 90-95%.  But I’m sure there’s a few who might not have.

 

I’d be curious to know why if you answered no.   Not that I think it makes someone less of a fan at all.   Especially if traveling/distance is an issue.  Or if you just like to follow the games more from home or at a local Bills Backer club per say.   

For the record I’ve been to two home games.

 

With the advent of the 80 inch high def TV, etc., the allure of the at game experience has waned for me. I like watching the game on TV. Camera angles, replay, and broadcaster commentary works for me. If you are at the stadium your neck is craned watching the jumbotron anyway. Plus I don't have to worry about driving home.

It's definitely on my bucket list.  I've never stepped foot in the city.  Once I retire from the military, my plan is to make it up there.  I've been to several away games though.

Better question would be, "have you ever been to a Bills home game outside of Buffalo"?

Where is the stadium located again?

Given that the poll number is running at 92.41% right now, I'd say you nailed it!!!

 

 

Thanks.  ?  One doesn’t need a mathematical mind to think analytically on what I’ve read here over the years.   Lol

I find Bills fans like you really interesting.

 

Apparently, you aren't a WNYer, which raises the question: Why in the world are you a Bills fan? 

 

I can't really think of any reason why 3rd party fans would latch onto the Bills.

I mean I can't speak for this poster but I'm not from Buffalo nor do I have any sort of real ties to the city outside this message board.  I mean if you even want to call it that?

 

With me when I started watched football in the early 90's the Bills were solid and I always heard my father speak fondly of the area when he used to travel there for work.  

 

So I guess that's where liking the Bills started with me.  It's waned at times over the years but it's still there

I have never even been east of Vegas in the USA


I was a huge Bruce Smith fan first, he was my favorite player in the league when I was 12 .  I then suffered the pain of 4 Super Bowl losses while most of my friends were cowboys fans. 
 

I knew literally no one else in my western Canadian town who liked the bills, and I reveled in that.
 

The pain of the SB losses solidified me as a Bills fan forever. I will never jump off this bandwagon I jumped on in 1990.

 

I feel a badge of honor sticking with this team through the highs and lows. It’s now a part of who I am and a metaphor for resiliency in my life.

 

I don’t give up on things I love.

I have been to games at the Rockpile guite a few times including watching Cookie Gilchrist run over and they the Jets for 243 yds in 1963. I still have the souvenir coin from the 1st game at Rich Stadium against the Skins. Haven't been back for a game in a few years now. I have seen games in Cinci, Cleveland, Indy and Detroit. Turned down an opportunity to see then in Philly because I didn't feel comfortable taking my wife to a game there.

FBF, you’re name suggests you live in FL, and myself in Tampa.  I was born and raised in Buffalo, but moved to Tampa the week of the Bills/Giants SB.  I’ve been to every Bills/Bucs since 93, a ton of Bills/Miami games, and Bills/Jax games including the 17 playoff game.  It was awesome as the lower level was all Jags fans, but the entire upper deck was a sea of red, white, and royal blue.  Sucked that we lost, but that defense was impressive.

I've been to a bunch of the same games as you.  I always have a good time tipping a few with Bills fans pregame in the parking lot.  Bills fans really know how to tailgate.

9/11/88 with my dad. I flew up to Buffalo from Florida to go on our yearly fishing trip to Canada. He met me at the airport on Saturday with 2 tickets to Sunday's game against My Yami. Bills won a yawner 9-6. I had been to the old Rockpile before when I was growing up, but this was really special. Turns out it would be the last time I would see my dad. He died suddenly 2 months later.

I’m sorry.  Glad you had that time with him though.
