If there's one thing Western New Yorkers take pride in, it's railing against any perceived slight, no matter how significant it may be.
So when ex-Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore took what could be perceived as a jab at his former team Monday, fans reacted predictably.
My People finally going to get to see me play on tv. #Patsnation#aboutthattime

I've watched you get torched on TV for years now. Maybe it's best they don't watch 😬🤷🏻♂️

On its own, Andy's tweet would be a decent response. But Ch. 2 sports anchor Jonah Javad went the extra mile. For the 6 p.m. newscast, he compiled a lowlight reel of Gilmore's time in Buffalo, showing everybody what they missed with the Bills not being on TV.
Stephon Gilmore took a jab at the #Bills for not playing on national TV as much as the Patriots.

The Bills and Patriots don't play until December.
