The Buffalo Bills announced a new tailgating policy on Thursday that they say is designed to provide a safe and fun experience.  It’s also designed to put an end to the Bills Mafia fun.

The Bills announced they are creating a “Tailgate Village” where they will charge fans $15 per person to have that safe and fun experience.

In advance of the 2019 football season, the Buffalo Bills have once again taken measures to improve fan safety and the game day experience at New Era Field through updates to the team’s Bus and Limo Parking Lot policy. The revised policy states that fans who attend Bills games by way of bus or limo bus, will no longer be allowed to tailgate near their vehicle. Instead, they will be able to opt into one of several tailgating options available in the new, safe and fun tailgate atmosphere called “Tailgate Village.” 

This new location, housed within the Bus and Limo Parking Lot, offers fans multiple tailgate packages to take advantage of. Based on fan feedback, the Bills worked closely with the Limousine Bus Taxi Operators of Upstate New York, Tailgate Guys and local law enforcement to create Tailgate Village. 

“We want to provide a safe and fun experience in the Bus and Limo Lot,” said Bills Vice President of Operations and Guest Experience, Andy Major. “That’s the overarching goal. We’re working closely with Tailgate Guys, which is a Bills partner, who have the expertise in fan tailgating and group tailgating. They do this across the country at many of the largest colleges in the nation and they do it very successfully…So, we’re excited to move forward with them, and we think they’re going to do a great job with this.”

This is a huge mistake.  When you think Buffalo Bills, you think of the Bills Mafia jumping off of vehicles through tables. 

The Bills Mafia is the only thing keeping the franchise relevant.  They show up week in and week out to support a franchise that can’t maintain any success on the field. 

And this is how you repay them?  It’s a sad day in Buffalo.
