Would you please take your garbage to the politics board?


Is this place moderated at all now?

 

 

This was not a political post nor is it justified to call an opinion other than tours garbage. That's disrespectful and doesn't allow for open discussion of topics.

 

JMO of course.

Why don't the Dolphins fans support our charities after all the injuries we suffered last week against them? Or the Tennessee fans after the Dane Jackson injury?

IMO, if you give with the expectations of others reciprocating, you’re doing it for the wrong reasons. Bills Mafia seems like they enjoy giving and not expecting anything in return. Good on them.

This is a good point. But my main problem is are we going to donate to a player's cause every time such and such a player gets a concussion or seriously injured and is carted off in an ambulance? That would be a lot of players over the course of a season. Sure, Tua is more high profile, but is his injury more severe than the others who get concussed or seriously injured? To me, people are donating because of his fame, not because of the injury. What about Joe Schmoe?

Is there ever a bad reason to give to charity?

Well, if it's for a good cause and you know the money is going towards the cause itself, not for "administrative" expenses, like the staff's salaries and more ads on TV so the staff can get raises or bonuses.

 

But then let them give to every player's cause for every injury. Heck, Bob Kraft had one of this Super Bowl rings stolen by Putin, so let's buy him a new one. And pay for any fine Tom Brady gets. Yeah, I'm being facetious, but there is a line.

I hear ya. Maybe I missed it, but has Bills mafia donated to a cause for Dane? Anyway, to your post, if you’re heart says donate…donate.

People who work at charities have to eat a well.

Add former Bills QB Tyrod Taylor to the list for his injury today.

Oh, yes, I agree on that. But, for example, there is a local pets charity where I live. Something like 90% of the funds donated goes to administrative costs. Very little money actually reaches those who it is intended to help. When you give to charities like that, you're basically paying the staff's mortgages, lol.
