Have you ever gotten into a fight over the Bills?

 As I was born in 88' I have no idea about this 83 game. What happened or caused it to be the Wild West?

Brawls in the upper deck, concourse, out in the lot... I was with a group of police officers, off duty, and their sons.   We avoided the conflicts and got out as fast as possible.  Too many drunk guys and gals taking out frustrations.

These tough guy posts pop up here every once and awhile and I love it.   They remind me of my Father in Law.  Guy has a million stories about how he would "drop" guys all the time back in the day.  He wont talk back or stand up to my mouthy 33 year old sister in law but "back in the day" his hands were lethal weapons. 

 

 

I taught my sons it is better to walk away than to fight.  There are times  I told them where you have to defend yourself.  I had my share of fights in hockey and on the street.  Never bragged about those experiences and regretted them.

Nope, no fights since college.

 

But dang, I feel we were real close in Jax in 2017 with that ahole sitting behind me, @Royale with Cheese, and @Boyst62 who kept yelling "DUUUUUUUUUVAAAAAAAAAAL" right into the back of our heads.


I remember the motorcycle dude trying to fight all the Bills fans.

JAX fans I have noticed are probably the most insecure fanbase in the league. I kinda get it because if you are a fan you are routinely dumped on the way we were during the drought except you have no real fanbase or culture, no great history outside of the late 90s, opposing fans regularly take over, and your owner has actively tried to make your team be in London. The actually Jag fans I have met are incredibly defensive, but its like dealing with a JV squad who you really just shrug off and move on.

2017 I took my family and extended family to see the Bills Pats in Foxborough Christmas eve.  The kids were having a blast and we had a fun tailgate prior and the parents were all pretty loose. I was the only Bills fan in the bunch, and the only in my section actually.

 

About the third Quarter I hit the bathrooms wearing my Bills gear and minding my own business.  Some dude was drunk as heck was giving me the business and I was just ignoring him.  As I got close to the urinal he kept saying, "lets double up I gotta p$ss, you'd probably like it Buffalo Bill but no ***** no *****."  On and on and people started telling him to just shut up.  When it was my turn and I started my business he literally reached around and tried to grab little me saying the same thing.  My elbow caught him in the face as hard as I could and dropped him.  He started yelling and tried to shake it off.  I finished and was ready for a beating from all the Pats guys but they basically told me good job and let me leave.   I was a bit wired needless and told my younger nephews about it, and to this day they bust my chops with this dudes catch phrase.  In all the Pats games Ive gone to this is the only issues Ive ever encountered other than some good ribbing etc.

No, how detached from reality does one have to be to fight over a game made for entertainment purposes. I can see players that actually play on the team getting heated in the moment of competition but fans fighting over a their favorite sports team is pretty juvenile. I have seen others fight over football (overly sensitive cowboys fan) but it was unbecoming to say the least.

Closest I came was at a UCF game in 2004 against Syracuse. It was at old stadium and before UCF was good and I was with my pregnant wife, brother with a broken arm, dad, and two other women, and these two dudes were throwing stuff at me like popcorn buckets and paper towels. It was about the 20th time right before half time we all got up to leave and the one dude tried to get me one last time with something and the people around him told him to cut it out loudly. Most people are cool but some suck, I enjoyed the rest of game, which was a Syracuse comeback from a different section. And to prove I don't hold grudges forever I just bought UCF season tickets.

I live near Chicago, and the Bills are playing at Bears next season. I'll definitely go, but stories like these, and things I've witnessed between Bears fans & opposing fans, I'm probably not gonna gear up in Bills stuff. I saw a nerdy Jags fan & his GF take some horrible abuse a couple years from a group of about 10 drunk guys, they were covered in beer & food & threatened. Security did nothing despite it going on for hours, and other fans cheered it on. I'd rather just watch the game than have to fight drunk losers & get kicked out, or have one of my teen sons get sucker punched by a 35 year old.

I was visiting an old shipmate from the Navy in Weirton, WV back in about 1994.  Back then, I used to wear the old Starter Bills winter coats and I was wearing it when we went to a bar.

 

There was a local Cowboys fan sitting at the bar.  Clearly a regular.  He was wearing his Cowboys gear.  He started giving me crap about the Bills and I tried to ignore him.

 

I figured he was just busting balls, so I decided to bust balls back.  I leaned close to him, over his right shoulder and told him he was a bandwagon jumper and not a real fan.

 

He proceeded to very quickly, without getting out of the bar stool, turn and punch me square in the face.

 

He was much bigger than I am.  This one punch knocked me back a good five feet, ending with me falling over a chair and into a table.  I got up and went toward him.  THANK GOD a bunch of regulars grabbed him and promptly escorted him out.  He would have killed me.

 

Woke up the next morning and I had a fat lip, bloody nose and a black eye.  From one punch.

 

I'm a lover, not a fighter!

No but I have gotten into a fight over the patriots

 

A looooooong time ago when I was stationed in Cape Cod a friend (die hard pats fan worked for Raytheon at my military installation) took me to my first and only live NFL game they were playing the redskins.

 

- Drunk fan dumped a beer on my friend (an older guy who didnt want trouble)

- Then he proceded to start calling all the patriots offensive linemen "fat F's" as they are walking to their locker room at halftime right after he dumped the beer on my friend.   After working on his face a little bit I grabbed him and hung him over the railing as the offensive linemen were walking by that heard his words.

 

Naturally security didnt like what I did very much but they at least didnt throw me out......the other guy got put out for public intoxication.

Just so we're clear .... with your hands, right?

I saw a girl knock out a drunk guy in the parking lot after his pants fell down around his ankles and his junk was hanging out. I guess he should have been wearing underwear.

The infamous Monday night jets/bills game in the fall 1983, lots of fights section vs sections, bills fans vs jets fans. I was involved, but not by choice

Sounds like an intelligent, classy, well handled situation all the way around by all involved.

Some friends of mine and I went to the first Houston playoff game - not the Comeback, but the first home playoff game in like 22 years, New Year's Day 1989.  There was plenty of snow on the ground and in the stands and in the second half one of my friends got bored and started tossing snowballs at a couple of guys a few rows down.  Bills fans, not Oilers fans.  Stupid either way, and we told him so.  After the third or fourth time the targets, who were getting really annoyed because they couldn't figure out who was throwing at them, turned around right when he was loading up another snowball.  What cracked me up was this:  they pointed at him and one yelled, "After the game we're gonna kick your ass.  You hear me?  AFTER THE GAME."  And they looked quite capable of doing so.  I thought to myself, now *those* guys are real Bills fans.  They could have gone right up and kicked the ***** out of him, but they weren't going to risk getting kicked out during the game.  They didn't turn around again.  With a couple of minutes left and the game pretty much in hand, my friend did the smart thing and beat it out of the stadium, going up a few rows and cutting across to another aisle to evade detection.  Right when the game ended, the two guys in front of us turned around and got ready to make good on their threat.... and they were pretty disappointed to see an empty seat.  I was too, kind of.  😄
