The Change.org petition had more than 7,800  people sign by Monday morning, more than the initial goal of 5,000. The petition was started by Steve Varga on Saturday afternoon.

The NFL draft, like opening day and the Super Bowl, should be a national holiday. Perhaps three days are too much for the NFL, but we can punt Presidents, Labor and Columbus Day, and I love me some veterans but combine Veterans with Memorial Day, and yes, I know the difference. This is Draft Day, dammit! I hate to even call it "Draft Day" after that awful movie that sho…

A Bills fan’s offseason is not unlike a Bills player’s. Sure, you take a short while off to clear your head and restore your body. Last year was brutal and took its toll. You have been doing this forever and each offseason is a tad tougher. But the Bills and Bills football is in your DNA and you can’t wait to jump right back in, like the Polar Bear Club. You want to …

Analysis

Outside of The Josh Allen Experiment, the 2018 Bills season is likely to be remembered for its up and down, in and out, don’t know if we are good or bad, coming or going fluctuations. Sometimes we are riding sky high; sometimes seem on life support. The Dr. Poyer and Micah Hyde back and forth, two-headed monster, is tough to watch and even tougher to get a handle on. …

A tradition in many homes across this awesome region and great land at this time of year is to go around the table and give thanks for all the things that are dear to one’s heart. So here, in the themes of the bountiful meal we are all about to engorge on Thanksgiving, are some thanks of mine for our local sports teams and their fans.  Thanks for the entrée – the main d…

In this most manic-depressive of seasons, the Bipolar Bills are on a two-week bye-high after the mind-bending 41-10 dismantling of the New Jersey Jets. Just another manic Sunday. In Bills world, suddenly everything is seen through a prism, and our blues now look downright rose-colored. In what can only be akin to masters starting to look like their dogs over time,…

There are times when it is hard to determine if it is tougher to win in this league or be a fan of this franchise. For a team that circles the wagons and drains as much as the Bills do, we fans have been dragged through the mud equally as much as its players, and perhaps more, as most of us have been here much longer, and take the beatings and losses just as personally …

Three white, plastic tables sit under a red pop-up tent for a growing crowd of around 85 people in a parking lot outside New Era Field. No one is jumping through these tables. They're used for a more innocent purpose, as brothers Rory and Ray Parker cook and assemble stinger subs — shaved steak, marinated chicken fingers, lettuce, tomato, cheese and Italian dressing plo…

Again? The term “sell a bill of goods” means, of course, getting a fraudulent deal, whose etymology apparently comes from the 1920s, which also seems like the last time the team was without controversy. Even during the Super Bowl years, many were arguing the Bills were the worst best team ever, like we got a participation trophy for playing in four straight. Last …
