Have you been devising a plan to sneak into Ralph Wilson Stadium Sunday to catch the Jets-Bills game? Are you a member of #BillsMafia who was thinking of throwing a rager in the parking lots around the stadium? The Erie County (NY) Sheriff’s Department has reiterated its stance that Mafia troublemakers will be hauled off to jail if there are any shenanigans Sunday.
“We have worked with the Buffalo Bills organization to implement safety and security measures for the stadium and the lots,” said Sheriff Tim Howard in a press release. “The Bills have created a detailed and strict plan to abide by the governor’s orders, and my office will assist the team in enforcing the guidelines on stadium property.”
There are rumors of a protest tailgate that has local officials worried the Mafia may try a sneak attack to test the authorities and their willingness to haul a bunch of Blue Light-bloated bros off to the county jail.
“We’ll be watching all around the stadium. Parking lots, roads,” Orchard Park Supervisor Patrick Keem told WGRZ. “And all this social media stuff does get us concerned…which you read and you see on there. And we want to make sure we have enough police officers in case an incident occurs where we have to take forceful action…we’ll be prepared.”
Buffalo bars have done their part to pick up the slack due to the tailgating ban by creating watch parties, including one bar that is running a Josh Allen special that consists of 34 wings and 17 beers for $59.99. However, local officials know #BillsMafia is filled with wildcats who want to see their possible AFC East champion team play the hated Jets.
Now how far are Bills fans willing to go to test the sheriff’s office. That’s where we stand a couple days out from the NFL returning to Buffalo. The cops go into wait and see while the Mafia slams beers, wings and contemplates their Sunday morning attack.
