The Bills are having a fantastic season and deserve all the praise they get for their efforts. But to say fans shouldn't even bother with the Sabres until February is an absurd thought.
If October through January doesn't matter, why not just start hockey season in February? If this occurred, fans who don't have the ability to be concerned with and root for two professional sports teams at the same time and would have nothing to worry about. But if this happened, fans who can chew gum and think at the same time would be deprived.
I guess it's tough for some people to do two things at the same time.
