    I wonder if they could make a Poncho helmet decal for a game

    I donít know why but us losing a beautiful man with a passion for our team hurts. I got to share the Dolphins 🐬 game in our New Yearís victory with him in the corner club seats. He was there & I got to talk with him, high-fiving & having fun. I never got to see him again in person but I thought to myself, who can deny this manís passion ??

    i hope the Bills can modify a helmet with a decal to mimic his mask, I think it would the ultimate way to honor him. Thereís still time, they can add this in for the home opener. Spread the word.

    Being from California, for some reason, there was no shortage of Cowboys fans. And while I never met the guy, it wasn't much fun being surrounded by fans (bandwagon jumpers) of a team that beat your team 2 times in the Superbowl. I REALLY hope that Allen is our franchise qb that brings us multiple rings and even talk about the Bills being a legitimate dynasty.

    The Kommissar won't even let teams wear an American flag on the back or their helmets anymore.

    The league office sucks elephant balls.

    The league won't allow it to happen, not messing with the actual logo, anyway. Also, I'm going to be 'that guy' and declare even though Pancho has become iconic among Bills' fans, his passion for the team and his struggle has been a great story, his passing is 'unfortunate' at best, and he probably deserves some recognition this can't become the main focus of the season, or even just the home opener. Pretty sure the top priority on Pancho's list would be winning the game and nothing should become big enough to become a distraction to that goal. Let's focus on winning the Super Bowl first, and then determine to honor him by including his family and presenting them with a nice ring of their own.

    I think all the 12th men should always be honored for their passion of being part of the Bills Mafia, it’s just my opinion.

    I'll also be that guy, yes he had great passion for the Bills, but there are just as many passionate Bills fans all over the country. Some are dealing with cancer and some like Pancho that have passed from it. Most everyone on this site, in the stadium or watch this team from wherever are just as passionate. The Bills have recognized him and all of us, it's on the Wall of Fame. THE 12th MAN. This is our tribute dead or alive.
    If the Bills want to put a plaque up and/or have a moment of silence at the opener fine, all for it. Think about it, where does it stop? Elvis guy, the two black guy with the Bills logo, Pinto Man and on and on.
    God took him away way to early in his life, let's hope the Bills can further honor all Bills fans, the living and dead someday with a Ring! R.I.P. Pancho, your suffering is over, while ours continues.

    I think all this Poncho bull**** is a bit too much. He's dead. Let it go. He was just a fan. Not the heart and soul of entire Buffalo Bills team like the news said last night. If he wasn't of Mexican ethnicity and a fan from Texas no one would care.

    Incorporate the sombrero into Bills stuff. Allow players to wear it running out of the tunnel. Make it a part of the Jill's unis. Wear them or just the one on the sidelines.

    But put Poncho on the Wall.

    Re: I wonder if they could make a Poncho helmet decal for a game

    So if I start playing dress up myself and then die of cancer in ten years should I get a sticker on the Bills helmet too?

    The organization should put a charactercher of Poncho on the Wall. His mask and sombrero. That's it. No name, no number. Nothing else. Not sure how anyone would get butthurt over that, but I'm sure some will find a way.

    If you are currently in your 20s & will die before 40, yes. If not then you don't qualify.
