embarrassed by some folks in 650

embarrassed by some folks in 650

Sat in section 650 next to a small group of Bills fans. Maybe 7 or 8. They were good peeps, cheering for their team and not looking for any trouble.

Everything was cool until about 10 minutes in. My group as sitting on the back wall so of course on third downs we're hitting the walls and making noise for our defense.

So later on the Bills fans start doing the same. No big deal right? Well some stupid harpie a few rows down starts screaming at them, using language I was embarrassed to hear and I was in the Air Force. Her husband runs and calls security and they come up and jump on these guys who had done nothing wrong. I thought it was garbage.

Of course we get up by 3 scores later and here come people getting brave and chest beating. One guy walks all the way up from the first row, gets in theirfaceand starts yelling. They showed admirable restraint because I wouldve decked this loser. Another guy with fleur d e lis glasses and an old dirty saints flag is glaring at them trying to be intimidating. Another guy is simulating sex acts. And about half the people in the section were yelling, taunting and otherwise just being jerks.

I felt bad for those guys, they paid for their tickets and airfare etc just like everybody. And got treated like garbage. I hadnt been to a game in about 3 years but I've never seen that kind of crap. I was ashamed.

A few bad Apples. Man its all in fun. At the end of the day, were just fans we don't play. It's not life or death. Fan is short for Fanatics.

Thank You, Jack Vegas

Sad. It's just a game. Visitors spend $$$ at stores and such. Don't be butts. We aren't Philly.

Sorry to hear this, I personally haven't witnessed such bad behavior by our fans. I really wish someone would've taken them aside and told them to behave better, after all like exile said, we aren't philly.

Re: embarrassed by some folks in 650

It wasnt everybody being jerks but it was too many people for sure. I dont know exactly what has changed since my lsst game in 2010 but I am not ok with that.

The thing that made me pause was one of the guys was just shocked by the hostility and was like "man we're the bills, we're not a rival and we're not going to win this game. I dont get it."

I didnt get it either. We should not be treating people that way. It was bush league.

Re: embarrassed by some folks in 650

I sat in the cheap seats for most of the Dome patrol era and beyond.
When I graduated college I started moving down because it got annoying (yeah, that's right, annoying to a kid who was like 23 years old!)
Bring a date to the game and you both leave soaked in beer, and not your own.
There were routine HUGE brawls up there with security and crap that would distract you from like 5 minutes of the 3rd or 4th quarter.

Had season tickets one year next to a guy who insisted on taking his boots off when he got drunk, and his feet stank something horrible. When you'd confront him, he'd want to start a fight and cuss you like a sailor. I joined forces with another season ticket holder behind me and we had to go to the Saints ticket office and petition to get this loser kicked out. Luckily he did get thrown out and we weren't the only ones filing complaints.

I loved and hated the middle high part of the terrace. Sad part was, I wasn't as high as you Jack Vegas. About 10 rows further up, the 'really really' drunk and stoned people were at the tip-top of the Dome by the metal walls. They were constantly raising hell and sometimes torturing not only opposing fans but our own.

If someone gave me tickets up there today I'd probably skip most of the games except the really really good match-ups... and I live close enough to get on a street car and be at the stadium in 20 minutes.

The sorry fact is, NFL games everywhere are chock full of drunken azzhats at the tippy-top of stadiums. Sorry that happened, but I'm sure the experience at the top of the Bills stadium would not only be freezing, but annoying too.

Re: embarrassed by some folks in 650

Same exact thing happened to me and my friend at the packers game a few years back. I really hAve no burning desire to ever see another saint game live.
My daughter wants to go to one so I may be forced to. I hope it doesn't ruin saints football for her.

It's probably the same all over ... what I did was pony-up for better seats (ie club level) for my kids' first games and then go for the cheap-seats later, after I had 'em hooked, .

Re: embarrassed by some folks in 650

Two years ago me and some of my family went to a game and got the 650 seats never again before that and since then we gone back to plaza area. The crowd up there are classless and rude even to saints who they don't think are fans cuz they aren't cheering in a drunken stupor. Like the old saying you get what you pay for.

Re: embarrassed by some folks in 650

Yeah, it's just a shame we have some fans like that. We don't act that way in the plaza level. All the Bills fans I talked to said everyone treated them nice and had a great time. But as we all know every city has their share of A-hole fans.
