DK.. it's been a while since attendance was that bad. Bills fans have always been a boisterous lot, but humble in victory (when it happens) and in defeat. We don't have 6 super bowls or whatever Pitt has and probably never will. But I don't recall********on other fans when the Bills were killing the AFC, I recall rooting hard for OUR team.

For an organization like the Steelers, who have had success beyond any other city's dreams, to have fans that take pride in kicking Bills' fans when they're down says a lot.. about their fans.

Christopher - would you be proud of your 5th grade son for beating up a 2nd grader and then making snide comments about it all the time? Grow up. Wear your yellow and black with pride. But show some maturity.

Captain.. sorry but every time there is a post about the Bills, Christopher has a snide comment rooted in arrogance.

I don't know where he grew up, so I'm not going to question his choice of the Steelers, but in my opinion the Steelers fans in this area are all arrogant a--hats, and taking pot-shots at the Bills is just so classy of them. So I'll return the favor.

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em right?

PR24601, I was at a December game when I was a kid, with the announced attendance around 15,000.

Be that as it may, here's one thing I really, really liked about Ralph Wilson: After games, he'd come of the the admin building and mingle with the fans. Just him - no PR flacks, not even security - just Ralph in his topcoat, spending as much time with someone as needed to answer any questions.

Classy...

Humm Christoper, let me guess. This year the steelers won thier last game, and you cheered, then hoped other teams would lose so Pittsburgh would be in the playoffs? WHy is that ? It because you want to see your team advance thats why. Even thought thay had zero chance to win the superbowl, you still wanted them to be in the playoffs, and the next round, and the next round. We all want our team to win it all. To consistantly move on to the next round till they reach the finals. Then we want them to win. Win or loss they made it as far as they could and represent the best in their conference. Now no matter how good we are we hope we get the breaks it sometimes takes to win.

"..Christopher is a Steelers fan - he has that smug arrogance exhibited by most fans (of the yellow & black)"

"...F the Steelers too."

"Again, not surprised you're a Steelers fan. Haven't met one in DK/F that isn't an arrogant POS."

WOW! PR24061 may not like PC or his opinions, but to attack him with personal insults, and then conclude that most Steelers fans are the same, indicates personal issues. I strongly support the option to post comments anonymously (while PC doesn't), but I'd NEVER support one like this.

My, my PR24601, do we have anger issues? LOL! What do ticket sales have to do with countering one statement I made about the Bills? Answer: NOTHING! It may in fact, reinforce them.

I live in the past? Hah. You're pathetic, Christopher. Again not surprised you're a Steelers fan. Haven't met one in DK/F that isn't an arrogant POS.

DK - still 60-65K per game. Two were about 5K short of sellout this season, and one was blacked out. Not bad for maybe the smallest/poorest market in FB.

Want to bash an area for fan support, how about a growing and booming metro area like Jacksonville that had to "black out" 15K seats at their stadium just so they could give the appearance of "selling out" their games. Oh - they're sell outs alright. A joke.

Remember the 15,000 or so that turned out in Niagara Square to "forgive" Scott Norwood after the first loss?

Is that now about the average attendance at Rich Stadium these days after nearly two decades of bumbling?

Not surprised that PR24601 is a Bills fan, he has that living in the past mentality and refusal to see the facts of any situation common to, and maybe required of, all Bills fans.

Not shocked Christopher is a Steelers fan - he has that smug arrogance exhibited by most fans of the yellow and black.

As much as the Bills comeback was awesome, let's get over it already. I'm a huge Bills fan, but reveling in the comeback is just a microcosm of the inanity in WNY - always living with heads in the past, ignore the sh*tfest that is present, and whine for a better future. ChauCo in a nutshell.

Yawn. F the Steelers too.

I was at that game, when Van Miller's "fandamonium" was coined.

The Bills should have won the first and fourth Super Bowls. Outcoached in both...

So if Scott would have made the field goal then Levys a better coach ? I am not a fan of any team, But I would rather see a team go 4 times and lose than no go at all. The Super Bowl experience in person is awesome. Never going is....

Marv Levy lost 4 Super Bowl's with one of the best teams in history. Her was seriously out coached in all of them, especially against the Giants, yet he's in the Hall of Fame!? yes, a fluke. Ralph Wilson has always hired the cheapest coaches and personnel men he could find, and has fired each and every one of them when their success dictated a higher salary. The Bills were greatest when they'd find low round studs. Those are the kinds of things GOOD personnel people do. He fired Polian, Butler and the last winning coach we had. I rest my case.

A pretty sad commentary that Buffalo Bills fans should be proud of something that happened 21 years ago!!! Face it, the Bills of those years, the Super Bowl years, were a fluke! Ralph Wilson has milked this area for decades with the least amount of effort and the worst management possible.
