    Question: Will The Bills have fans at any point this season?

    Have they gave a definite answer to this? Absolutely not? Maybe?

    Re: Question: Will The Bills have fans at any point this season?

    They've only officially said that there wouldn't be fans for the first two games. They haven't committed to anything beyond that.

    After Sunday, the next home game is the Thurs night game against the Chiefs. After the game in Miami last week, reporters were asking the team about how it worked with Miami having limited fans, and all the team said was something nondescript like "we observed how they were handling the situation."

    So, basically, after Sunday, they haven't said how they were going to handle it.

    Has there been any reported outbreaks from the games that have allowed small numbers of fans? Miami, Jax, Cleveland, KC?

    A shame but I understand the circumstances.

    What's the covid situation like in Buffalo right now? Are people generally wearing masks and social distancing? Are they seeing an increase/decrease in cases?

    Wish I could have been one of those fans, but I don't feel like staying in a hotel for 2 weeks before the game, also I don't have enough vacation time to cover that.
    Personal Attacks on me, Attempts to enflame Me, and efforts to start escalation will no longer be tolerated by me and I will do my damndest not to encite you. IF you choose to follow your old troubled MO of trying to provoke me, bait me, troll me, and attack me, I am not going to respond to you. I will report you very quickly and have you very quickly dealt with by the mods because yes, the TOS apply to me and they do apply to you whether you like it or not. If you are confused about what the TOS are, click the link at the end of my signature. Familiarize yourself with it because I am done with you and you will learn very quickly that nobody is going to play the games that almost got the Spinzone permanently shuttered. So play your old games if you dare, but you and the accounts will be banned and I will go on being me.

    I agree that it's a good question to ask.

    As a frontline health worker, I've seen what COVID can do. In order to trust in the safety of having fans at games, we first have to be able to trust that people attending games will be able to follow precautions and show that they care about their fellow citizens.

    What we saw, quite rapidly, is at least 2 people who would not be able to do that. They were not people who just don't understand the importance of masks, hand washing and social distancing (who come in much greater numbers), these were people who think it's a hoax. It's insane.

    At this point, looking around at the behavior of a significant percentage of Americans, I think the risks of having fans in large numbers outweigh the benefits.

    We all could use a sense of normalcy or some outlet that gets us away from this thing bearing down on us. I understand the frustration, maybe as much as anyone. I am isolating myself in my own home, away from my wife and my 22-month old foster daughter who might be officially up for adoption on Monday. If that happens, I cannot even celebrate that with hugs and kisses and a party that would happen in normal circumstances. COVID has caused a very disruptive change in human-to-human relations but a necessary one.

    What I don't understand is that some people seem to be willing to risk the lives of others in order to do what they want to do. Because too many of those people exist, I do not think NFL games should have fans.

    Maybe, MAYBE, if security is tight and people are responsible, 10 to 15% capacity. But if people like those who posted irresponsible, ignorant trash are in attendance, or, if people assume they don't have it and are not adequately careful, they will ruin it, like they are ruining everything else.

    Again, I think the risks far outweigh any potential benefit, and I suspect that state authorities are in that line of thinking as well.
