Here are some of…

The official outlawing of table-slamming outside New Era Field was big news Sunday, preventing the more raucous Buffalo Bills fans from engaging in their favorite pastime. But, it wouldn't be a Bills home opener without some sort of unexpected fracas – even if it occurred a few miles from the stadium. Edgy national sports-entertainment site Barstool Sports tweeted a …
