We should move to Alabama so all the Auburn fans can attend.

It's well known that Joe DeLamielleure is an utter prick.

 

I remember hearing him on a radio broadcast in Ohio in 02 when he said the Browns (yes, the Browns) would beat us by 40 points.

Buffalo struggles to sell out, to gain interest and investment for a new stadium, and is constantly threatened with relocation away from Western NY, only saved by a clause in its lease.

All people connected with the club say is "There are cities around that aren't football cities but keep their franchise".

Improve your form and the city may become more football-friendly. And keep Trump and his circus away.

Carolina has been consistently in the top top 8 in average home attendance over the past 10 years.

This is a common example of some jackwagon not doing any research before spewing out garbage.

He did say "when they lose". I wouldn't go as far as saying we aren't a football city, but it's pretty pathetic at BoA when the Panthers suck

But still better than Tampa and Jacksonville (who ironically stated that they were such a better football city than us on inception).

Half of all residents of Buffalo and Cleveland from Joe's day are here now anyway.

Let's frame this. Joe DeLamielleure lives in Charlotte. He listens to WFNZ and sometimes calls in. He's depressed and suffering from CTE.

 

He lives here, he knows about the transplants and fickle fans. He's probably witnessed our crowd first hand. And he's listened to the morons that call in to WFNZ. Compared to Bills fans, he might be right. The team does take a hit when they don't play well. Fans do stick to the Cowboys, Steelers, and Redskins instead of support the local team. To me he is part right. It's not fair to the real fans. We probably have more real fans than the Buffalo Bills, but we also have more fair weather fans than the Bills.

 

Another thing, we have a rich College Basketball tradition here along with NASCAR and Golf. What does Buffalo have? What does Cleveland have?  Football is it.

Oh without question. We still have quite a ways to go though.

He always sounds pretty damned cool when hes been a guest in local radio. Seemed he had adopted the Panthers.....are you sure?
