    Take a year off? And miss the big push to their first Super Bowl Championship? No way!

    Thought about it today. I'm not saying I will, but I thought about it. It's going to be so hard to watch and not enjoyable at all.

    “Russ and I scanned a list of possible candidates,” Wilson said. “We didn’t know them. I didn’t know them. I don’t think Russ did. We narrowed it down to two candidates for the job of general manager of football, two in-house candidates.”

    I took half the year off after the titans game I haven't been watching really. Go 49ers as my adopted team. ..

    IMO it will be too hard to watch knowing they'll be crappy again.
    I know they'll be crappy every year. I still watch every game I can, though, for some reason.

    The redzone channel is pretty awesome. It makes it easier to stop caring about the Bills games.

    Is yelling obscenities at the TV considered cheering? There is a lot more of THAT going on at my house!

    As much as I dislike Gailey, I think it would be more difficult for me to watch the Bills with Fitz back at starting QB than with Gailey back at HC.

    No matter what happens, it would also be impossible for me to miss the season opener.

    But if week 1 is a continuation from 2010-2012 (very likely), I would find it very difficult to tune in for Week 2.

    Tbh, I have only watched a few Bills games this season in their entirety. And the Chan Gailey era marks the first time I have neglected to watch certain games. Before that I would watch every week, because even though there were seasons when the team had horrible talent, they played their asses off, and I appreciate it as a fan.

    It's easy to take a year off. You can still watch the games but don't buy merchandise or tix. If you can't do at least that than you are one weak person. Just watch them on tv!

    If they keep Chan, I strongly believe they'll have a top 3 pick in the 2014 draft and accordingly my family is strongly considering giving up the 4 season tickets we've held for the past 20 years....

    If Gailey and Fitz are back next year I won't be renewing NFL Sunday ticket. I'm tired of spending money on this team. After 13 years enough is enough.

    I have considered dropping NFL Ticket and getting Center Ice instead, but then the NHL decide no hockey is better than some hockey.
    I'm now considering taking my NFL Ticket money and spending that on more beer instead.

    All joking aside, I'll keep ruffing it out but will probably start to loose my attachment to the team and treat them more as a hobby than a passion.

    The Bills are not entertaining. If Chan's still HC, and they blow another draft not getting a QB, I am officially done. I am not going to watch this trainwreck continue down the track another season.

    I second this. As time has gone on, I've become less of a Bills fan and more of an NFL fan. I still root for the Bills...but I know that its pointless. The organization is clearly dysfunctional and until new ownership takes over there will be no serious commitment to field a winning team.

    But with the NFL network I can enjoy all the games and watch organizations that actually place a perogative on winning games. I find it is much more entertaining to watch team's with talented rosters and competent coaching staffs compete on a weekly basis.

    Between the red zone channel and fantasy football, I still enjoy the NFL on a weekly basis. I still wish the best for the Bills, but I don't spend any money on merchandise, paraphernalia, etc...The Bills are more of a background noise to the NFL experience.

    If the Bills can Gailey and Fitzpatrick, I'll likely be much more into them again next season. But if they show no real desire to improve, then I'm content with enjoying the NFL experience in general.

    shows you still care, thumbs up.

    lamp smashing and freaking out because you lost $1,000 betting on the Bills shouldn't have been in your life since around 1993 though...
