New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo took a break from insulting the intelligence of one of the greatest cities in the world last week to try to insult one of the greatest fanbases in all of the NFL.
The Bills Mafia.
That’s because the man who has all but shut down the state and forbade fans from attending NFL games tried to play the hero card when he announced last Wednesday that 6,700 fans will be allowed inside Bills Stadium this weekend for what will be the Bills’ first home playoff game since December 28, 1996. And thinking the fans would welcome him with open arms he tacked on that he would be attending the game.
A Change.org petition calling for a ban on Cuomo at Bills Stadium had received more than 40,300 signatures as of Wednesday morning.
“If he thinks he has more right to a seat in that stadium over people who have waited over 20 years for this opportunity, then people better be there to protest his entry,” the petition reads. “This is OUR team! This is OUR home. We don’t want you here.”
And that is why—regardless of the spin Cuomo wants to put on it—he said yesterday he was giving his ticket away.
“I’m going to give my Bills ticket to a nurse from Erie County Medical Center as a way of saying thank you and honoring all health care heroes,” the governor said at a press briefing.
