What's Wrong With Us?

Recommended Posts

... and by "us" I mean Bills fans.

 

If this were a relationship, and the Bills were the boyfriend and the fans were the girlfriend, we'd all be telling her, "Dump this loser! He's no good for you. He's never there for you. He's a total freeloader. He never gives anything to the relationship. All he does is take take take. He says he's sorry but does nothing about it. Anything he does different is the bare minimum and nothing ever really changes. It's time to move on!"

 

And you know what. That would be good counsel. Bills fans are the most loyal in the NFL. My question, "WHY?!?" I live in CA. I lived in Poughkeepsie, NY for a few years growing up, so I'm not a Western New Yorker, so forgive me if I don't get it. I've been a Bills fan since 1988 and I can't for the life of me figure out why I keep putting up with this crap. Is it pride? Is it the fear that right after I throw in the towel on this team that then they'll turn it around? But, NOTHING EVER CHANGES. Not for this franchise. Lift your hopes and dash them, on every level. Whether it's a Super Bowl (or four), or just a Monday Night Football game against the Pats, or even a single drive. Somewhere, somehow, this team is going to shoot itself in the foot and fail you... again.

 

I quit buying Bills stuff years ago. I don't go to games (which, living in CA is easy), but I just can't bring myself to jump ship entirely. WHY?!?

It's love.......nothing but love.

 

I get that... but if the love doesn't flow both ways, it's not a loving relationship. It's co-dependency.

I'll tie a frying pan to my ass so you hurt your penis, you ****ing homo!

Anyone who is foolish enough to not be a Buffalo Bills fan can go f*ck themselves with a wooden shovel handle.

If you need somthing to hang your hat on, our BILLS won it all in 64 and 65 BACK TO BACK BABY!!!

So we are a championship team.

 

 

Too bad the first Super Bowl started a year later.

Why? Because like many relationships you think that you've invested so much into that person that eventually a light switch will go off in their heads and they'll have a newfound appreciation for what you bring to the table and things will get better. I've been through this with girls before but once they get spoiled and comfortable it's near impossible to turn the love spigot back on and the nagging one off. The Bills are like that. You've invested so much emotion and money into this team that you convince yourself that we're only one good draft, one coach, one free agent signing, or one GM away from approaching greatness.

 

I used to be an enthusiastic fan that yelled at the TV and took losses hard but the last 17 years really sucked it all out of me. There was a temporary high last year when we got in but that was quashed quick by the dismal playoff performance and now here we are in 2018 with a crippled, unwatchable offense and no hopes of a repeat in the tourney. For me, I can't move on to another team but at the same time I don't have to invest anything in a lemon beater either. I didn't watch a second of last night's game and already cancelled my tickets to the Jets game November 11th. As fans, I think that's all we can do is remove ourselves from the equation and just watch at arm's length.

Hopefully someday they will make us proud again.

 

That ship has sailed. Trump didn't buy the team. :niterider

Fair.

I could.

But I don't... and I don't know why.

I was raised in a 49er household, and still watch them, but when I was a young teenager I couldn't be like my parents. I picked the Bills because a really admired the heart of that team. They caught my attention in 88, I jumped in in 89, and then they hit their "Golden Age," so maybe there's something in my brain that thinks they'll swing back in that direction any year now.

That affinity for this team is fading fast over 18 years of irrelevancy, and at least the Niners have been entertaining over the years. I guess I'll have to "wait and see what happens next year..." (there I go again)

You know, this is a really good question. Sadly, I think it’s more habit than anything for me. Last week I turned it on late bc I had other stuff going on, my wife asked why I bothered, I actually replied, “I just want to know how big is a shit show it is this week”. Within 30 minutes it was 28-0 and she took the remote away to watch something else, I didn’t care.

 

I’m curious to know if Allen can be something or if he is what I thought he was and I can write off 4 more years before there’s any point of interest again.
