    Default It's us, not OBD....

    Buffalo Bills

    FREE iPad Download

    After wasting another four hours watching the Bills blow it exactly as I predicted (to my wife mid way through the 4th quarter), I finally realized that it isn't their fault at all. It's ours. I watched in horror as all of the Bills players HAPPILY shook the hands of the Rams staff and players right after they lost another so called heart breaker. These guys acted like they just arrived at a family reunion and couldn't wait to chum it up w/ old friends and family. They didn't care at all that they just blew another game in the last minuet. They didn't care that their playoff hopes were probably officially dead. They didn't care that their fans, who spent too much money to watch their rich aszes, were freezing in crappy weather just to support them AGAIN and AGAIN they blew a very winnable game in the last seconds.

    I finally realized that I have wasted a tremendous amount of time and too much money on an oraganization that can't produce anything more than losers (with the exception of one FLUKE period in history). These guys just don't care if they win or lose. Many here have been calling for a coaching change again and I have been on the fence because of continuity reasons, but I'm fully on board w/ a whole new coaching staff.

    Then I realized that all this is our own fault. We fill the seats and by their shi* every week no matter what. Leave that stadium EMPTY two weeks straight and then we'll see what OBD is made of. It's telling when someone like Russ Brandon has as much power as he does. I wonder if we don't get a real staff because he knows that real football men will realize that he's just a douche??? Anyway, nothing is going to be any different unless we just boycott the whole deal for a week or two. I wish we could convince each other that the loss a games worth of ticket money is a small amount compared to several more years of this crud.

    What's the saying? Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me (not G.W. Bush's version LOL). Well what about fool me 13 years worth of being fooled. Shame on us is an understatement at this point. I wonder if the rest of the football world sits back and laughs at us until they cry?

    Most NFL players don't care.. It's a job.

    Bills fans are not laughed at. The Bills organization is. We are generally respected across the league because of what we put up with.

    Going to a game is an entire day activity. If your going to watch quality NFL football and not get totally smashed it's pretty boring at the Ralph!

    Maybe we should be laughed at? We support in a die hard mannor which is admirable no doubt, but when does it become problematic. If a company provides a bad product and it stays profitable, why would they make any serious changes to it. We all would be fired if we didn't produce but we keep providing a salary to OBD even though they don't produce. Our only way to "fire" them is to boycott sales of their products. If we aren't being laughed at then EVERYONE else understands and would understand our position if we did quit supporting for a short time. Maybe a week on and a week off to let them know we aren't messing around. Sounds hokie so I'll stop now but you get my point.

    Our gameday experience is so great it can overshadow a lot of bad football but not forever
    I love the smell of charcoal in the morning.

    You're probably right. I watch the game every Sunday w/ my 88 year old Grand Mother. I wish I weren't such an dumb azz myself.

    I understand your frustration. I just don't have the time or desire to boycott. Its pretty easy not to purchase their products in NC....theres nothing here haha- I usually purchase second hand - EBAY BABY- so they dont see any money from me.

    Then they chuckle. I get a little shocked look, then asked why I'm not a Cowboys fan. Really?

    I dont blame OBD, i blame myself.

    I could have jumped off this trainwreck years ago, but decided to stick it out.

    On a side note.........i decided to watch porn instead of the game today.
    At least porn can give me some sort of satisfaction, it never lies to me or lets me down and it always ends on a high note.
    Can you dig it?
