A huge snowstorm enveloped Western New York last weekend and forced the Buffalo Bills to play a home game at Ford Field in Detroit.
The Bills have announced they are thanking Detroit by donating $20,000 to the Lions Foundation. The Bills also had coffee and donuts from Tim Hortons delivered to the Lions facility and Ford Field.
Here’s the full statement:
The Buffalo Bills would like to express their sincere thanks to the Lions organization. In the span of a few hours, Detroit opened its doors and came together quickly to ensure the Bills could host their “home” game on Sunday after parts of Western New York faced snow accumulations of more than 80 inches.
“We can’t thank the Lions organization enough for their efforts this past weekend,” Ron Raccuia, Buffalo’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, said. “It was no small feat to pull that game off, and each and every Lions staff member was first class throughout.”
Buffalo was ecstatic over how welcoming and accommodating the Lions organization was with their ability to make us feel at home. The organization did a countless number of things to make sure the game could be played on time, and it does not go unnoticed.
To express our gratitude, the Bills foundation is donating $20,000 to the Lions foundation. We would also love Bills Mafia to follow our lead and donate to the Lions who did so much for us over the last few days. If you would like to donate, please click here.
The Bills also had Tim Hortons coffee and donuts delivered to the Lions facility and Ford Field this morning.
Thank you so much to the Lions organization for doing whatever needed to be done to make our Week 11 game possible.
NFL's Most Attractive Fanbases Ranked - Where Are the Lions?
I like to think that we have some pretty attractive people here in Detroit. I mean, just look at the WRIF staff. We’re all friggin’ models. Okay, I’m having fun here, but the folks at Lines.com have ranked all of the NFL teams by the most to least attractive fan bases, and you’re not going to like the results.
To rank the most attractive fan bases, Lines.com looked at various factors, including fan behavior.
“Overall, men and women both found the use of vulgar language to be the most unattractive fan behavior, with women feeling the strongest about it,” Lines.com stated in the study. “While both genders agreed upon the top three most unattractive fan behaviors, engaging in fan traditions proved more contentious. Men were 4.8 percentage points more likely to find this behavior unattractive than women.”
They added, “When observing generational differences, it was apparent that Generation Z was less likely to be turned off by the three behaviors that the other generations found most offensive, i.e., using vulgar language, consuming alcohol, and being confrontational toward opposing fans. On the other hand, younger age groups were more likely to find singing and joining in group cheers unattractive in comparison to their older counterparts.”
So, where are the Lions. It’s not good. Check out the list below, and you’ll see where we land. Meanwhile, the Atlanta Falcons are No. 1. I’ve never been to Atlanta, but according to this study, they have some attractive peeps there.
