Maybe it's just me, but it seems to me, during my last few trips out to the Ralph, the Bills fans have become ..... oh, I don't know - pussified???? Back when I went there in the late '80s, early '90s (heck, even the late '90s), I was given hell all day long. Back in '88, the entire section around me chanted "A-hole" (so to speak) at me after I celebrated a Miami Toucdown. Some guy in an ape suit lead the way.
In 2006 and 2007 when I went, the fans were into the team, but they were very low-key in their insults towards me. Got the basic mundane "Squish the Fish," etc. then people would talk football with me. Were even nice. During my tailgate in '06, we had a blast with about 10 Bills fans around us, shotting the **** and having a blast. No way that happened back in the day.
Even in '07 when you could really rub it in (you gave us our 13th loss that day, to go 0-13), people were happy just to talk the next draft with me. Really????
I even had this convo with a couple fans back in '06 when I had such a great time. The consensus was that the games haven't meant all that much for so long, that people have lost their energy.
Anyway, just wondering what happened to the energy I used to feel there. Went to college in Rochester back during those SB days, and I guess I've just come to expect a tougher breed of Bills fan. Lately, notsomuch!
Oh, feel free to be easy on me this Sunday too!!!
