ORCHARD PARK, NY (WKBW) The Bills postponing the Bills in Toronto Series today at One Bills Drive meant one thing to Bills fans- one more home game back at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
“I was happy, really happy to hear the news,” said Bills fan Walter Pankow.
“Seems like a good commitment to the fans to bring that game home,” said former Bills Linebacker Gabe Northern. “We have to pack the Ralph and win some more games to get back to the playoffs.”
The series is only postponed for one year, one of the main reasons being the 1-5 losing record and the Bills feeling like they don’t have home-field advantage.
“We’re going to look at every aspect that if we do come back, we have a better fan experience and home-field advantage,” said Bills President and CEO Russ Brandon. “Right now, that was not the case.”
The news is big to Bills fans and Bills season ticket holders who will have eight opportunities to see the Bills play at Ralph Wilson Stadium this season.
“With the move that the Bills have made, the fans should make the commitment to pack the stadium,” said Northern.
“For the game to be back in Buffalo, it’s a home crowd, a home feeling, and a lot more beneficial for the team,” said Bills fan Mike Alessi.
