    Re:sportsmanship

    In Buffalo, I was wearing a Chargers jersey after a Buffalo win, and it was borderline.

    If the Chargers would have won, It would be Hoodies up.

    I didn't have any issues in Buffalo after the Vikings beat them there.

    Re:sportsmanship

    when was this though? This was two years ago when the bills started out really hot then missed the playoffs, so they were probably in fml mode.

    Inside the stadium wasn't too bad, the guys around us were decent. Some friendly heckling was had, but nothing too bad.

    Walking back to the car, we got called out multiple times to fight jsut for wearing a jersey.

    Politely declined of course.

    As well, this game, a helium baloon hit a transformer and knocked out power to the stadium

    That meant no electricity inside, meaning no food or beer.

    I suppose everyone was jsut really cranky.

    Noteworthy
    The game was delayed approximately 15 minutes in the first half due to a power outage that was reportedly caused by balloons striking a power line outside of Ralph Wilson Stadium. With no power, CBS' broadcast was halted, but officials eventually resumed play and kept time manually on the field. The lack of play clocks resulted in delay-of-game penalties by both teams. Power was partially restored with about 11 minutes left in the second quarter. The CBS broadcast resumed with seven minutes remaining in the first half, only to be interrupted again when the power went out a second time with two minutes remaining in the first half. Power was restored permanently midway through the third quarter ... Bills DE Aaron Schobel missed the first game of his career (117 starts) due to a foot injury. ... The Chargers will have a long flight to think about what went wrong on Sunday. The team will travel straight to London in preparation for next week's matchup with the Saints at Wembley Stadium as part of the NFL's International Series. ... The Bills are 5-1 for the first time since 1995.

    Welcome aboard the longboat, Reverend!

    I have to admit, I've had more trouble over the years with Cowboys fans than with those of any other team, but it's good to know that there are some of you out there with the right idea. I attribute a lot of the trolling and rudeness to the bandwagon-jumping sort who only "love" a team when they are winning. Given that the 'Boys have been a winning team more often that not, I suppose you get a lot of those.

    I don't know if I quite agree with the 90/10% figure given earlier, but I an fairly certain that good sports outnumber the bad with every team. Unfortunately, a few bad apples can leave a very bad taste behind them.

    In any case, I hope you will stick around and post regularly. It will be a pleasure to trade thoughts with you and the other good sports who drop by.

    My Meeple is purple. What color is yours?

    I can't say I'm surprised. Minnesota and Colorado are the two nicest states in the US.
