New York Toolbag Politician Gives Bills Fans Their Grade Card After Saturday’s Game

By now, you guys know what I think of Erie County Executive toolbag Mark Poloncarz. Poloncarz spent the last six months threatening and lecturing Bills fans on how they should live their lives, how they shouldn’t fly to Miami to see the Bills play, and how his office would look at revoking the permits of lots that allowed tailgating around Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Well here we are, the Monday after 6,700 Bills fans cheered their asses off inside the stadium, and Mark’s out with his full report on how fans behaved.

“All reports I’ve received are everything went well with the fans at the Stadium today,” Poloncarz tweeted. “Fans followed rules beforehand, no tailgating was observed, and just minor issues inside stadium. Thank you to all for doing a good job!”

How nice. Adults get a grade card from a local politician who’s been treating his constituents like children since Week 1 of the NFL season. And now since you were such good adults, there’s a very good chance that another 6,700 will be allowed in this week for the Ravens game. Thank god you were on your best behavior, or Mark would’ve had to drop the hammer.

According to the stats from COVID tests administered to fans hoping to see the game, 137 people out of 7,165 tests administered came back positive. That’s 1.9%, and as the Buffalo News reported last week, that’s well below the regional or state rates that hover at 7.2% in Erie County and 7.9% statewide.

The World Health Organization recommends a positivity rate under 5%.  According to Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, “the World Health Organization recommended in May that the percent positive remain below 5% for at least two weeks before governments consider reopening.”

Bills fans were at 1.9%. Let that sink in for a minute. Seems like it might be time to consider raising the number of fans allowed inside the stadium, right?

  1. Think about this. If every fan has an empty seat on either side of them throughout the entire Bills’ stadium, you can get a crowd of 35,935. That’s 50%. That’s very reasonable to me, especially if they’re even testing everyone before you come. If you wanted to get crazy and double the space between you can still get a crowd of 17,967. To me that’s where you start. Where are they getting 6,700 from? At least give us 25%! Covid is a pencil pushing bureaucrat’s fantasy for making arbitrary rules.
