Incoherent ramblings about a stupid team name....Bills

62 posts in this topic

i remember listening on NPR to a bunch of french people in paris sitting at a coffee shop complaining about the U.S. and how we think we're better than everyone and try forcing ourselves on everyone. at some point the journalist recording the discussion pointed out that they were sitting at a starbucks.

 

i feel the same way about yankee transplants in the south complaining about life down here.

It's cool. When the Bills move to Toronto in a couple of years, they will probably change the name.

Yeah, the Toronto Buffalo Bills.

I'm sure they'll find a way to shorten it, though.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffalo_Bills


 

The Bills were named as the result of the winning entry in a local contest by Michael Doucas (son of legendary NFL star Sam Davies), which named the team after the AAFC Buffalo Bills,[5] a previous football franchise from the All-America Football Conference that merged with the Cleveland Browns in 1950. That team was named after a male bison or "Billy". The name was chosen from a contest that was won by Bill Keenan. The similarity to famous Wild West showman Buffalo Bill Cody, while used as a play on words in the previous Bills team's iconography, is not (nor has it ever been) used by the current team. The Bills' cheerleaders are known as the Buffalo Jills. The official mascot is Billy Buffalo.

 

 

You need to know the history of the team to follow the connections. But they are named after a male bison not a person.

 

FYI Buffalo was the far west a long time ago. There were bison there then.

There are a ton of people here from Buffalo because those worthless turds drove their local economy to hell.  Now they are moving in here like locusts to tell us how to build an economy, run a successful NFL franchise, and just to criticize the South in general, as their free-loading, jobless asses bask in the glow of open businesses and people who take care of themselves.  So, before you mindless know-it-alls generously share your cunning and wit with us, please provide a disclaimer that explains what the hell you actually have accomplished in life.   Buffaloes were nearly wiped out and made extinct by the beginning of the 20th century.  You didn't have to take the name of your town so seriously.  Jobless, whining bastards.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
