Whether they’re winning or losing, the Bills have had difficulty selling out home games in December since Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly was leading the team to four consecutive AFC titles in the early 1990s.Buffalo sold out only about 55 percent of its games in the 1990s. And the figures haven’t been much better since. That was indicative last year, when the Bills final three homes games — all in December — were blacked out on local television because they failed to sell out.The bitter cold and harsh conditions have been blamed for the poor turnouts.It’s a concern that’s led the Bills and U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer to question why the NFL would continue scheduling so many games in Buffalo this late in the season.http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/redskins/bills-reach-home-stretch-of-schedule-wondering-if-fans-will-show-up-to-support-losing-team/2012/11/13/3ee3ce58-2df5-11e2-b631-2aad9d9c73ac_story.html
I hear a lot of excuses, but see little fan passion when it comes to attending games.My seats are $30 each, I pay on amonthly payment, and I NEVER, NEVER sit in my seat. So I guess I should thank the fans who'd rather watch a choppy interent feed than attend games so I can sit in the 200 section and stretch out.
Why do so many of you get so angry that the stadium doesn't fill up and sell out? Who cares.
Also, the Eagles are only an hour away as well. So, while while there could 25-30 million people in the area, you'd have to allow that they are evenly split among the 3 teams. So at most, you're talking about 10 million per team.
Mercer County is the dividing line for Jets, Eagles and Giants fans. Philly is very provincial, not because they are good fans but because no one wants to transplant there. Giants fans extend all the way up to Central Conn. So all 3 teams are always well supported.
