PRESEASON A RIPOFF

A preseason game that doesn't count, where the first priority is to check out the talent of non-starters but not win the game, where Bennett, Smith, Reed and Norwood don't even play but the fan is expected to pay full price and season-ticket holders are forced to buy the tickets, is a disgrace and a ripoff.

When a community sets an all-time NFL attendance record, after four previous losing seasons, don't insult us by forcing us to pay full price for an exhibition, a poor exhibition.

There was a time when season-ticket holders were appreciated. Then they raised prices, took away preferred parking, raised prices again, then offered possible Super Bowl tickets, not by seniority but by a lottery. What an insult to the people who bought season tickets through the lean years. How would the Bills' management like it if, after last year's regular season, the playoff sites were determined by a lottery? Dumb, huh?

It's time to speak up, season-ticket holders. Let the Bills know we're tired of being told what intelligent fans we are, and yet be insulted by overpriced exhibition games. My opinion counts, and so does yours.
