Bills fan catches fire at game

It's the latest behavior of some Buffalo Bills fans that's once again trending on social media after the team's final game of the season.

The latest video shows a fan jumping onto a flaming table. The fan then catches fire, and it takes him at least 10 for him seconds to realize he's on fire. Other fans then pour beer on him, trying to get the fire out.

Bills fans have made headlines this season for their bad behavior before and after games. Last month, a video surfaced apparently showing two fans having sex in a parking lot.

Due to the graphic nature of the video, we won’t be sharing it here. But the video, which lasts six seconds, shows a man in a Bills jersey and blue knit hat apparently having sex with a woman who is also in a Bills jersey.

The video was shot in a parking lot. Before the camera zooms in on the couple, you can see garbage strewn on the grass and a second person lifting up a cellphone to capture the action. Among the cars in the background is a truck flying a large Bills flag, which flaps in the breeze as the couple has sex.

A single word is superimposed across the screen: “Savage.”

The videos began to emerge in September, after the Bills took on the Colts, when video of a man playing dizzy bat and slamming headfirst into a bus was being talked about across the country.

The next month, when the Bills took on Giants, video emerged of a dance off that ends in an RKO through a plastic table. Once again, Bills fans make the national news.

Now there is a video of two fans apparently having sex (which some claim was actually taken in September 2014 and is only just now making headlines), a video of Bills fans playing "shopping cart chicken," and a video of a fan choke-slamming Santa Claus into a plastic table.

So our question for you, Bills fans: Does something need to change to stop videos like this from coming out after a home game? And if it does, what? More security? Limits on tailgating? An increased sense of fan responsibility?

Or is this a case of just a few bad apples taking things too far? These latest videos came at a time of heightened security at the Ralph after the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino. And it's unclear if all of these videos were taken in a stadium parking lot. So are changes even needed?

Vote in our poll below and let us know what you think:

The Buffalo Bills issued this statement about the videos after the video of two fans apparently having sex emerged: "We continue to encourage our fans to act responsibly both inside the stadium and in the parking lots, whether it be our lots or neighboring lots that are outside of our control where these videos appear to have been shot."

"As we reiterated to fans last week prior to Sunday's game, "if you see something, say something" by telling security, law enforcement personnel or Guest Services personnel. Fans are also able to report incidences by texting: BILLS, followed by location and issue to 69050 or by calling the Game Day Hotline at 716-312-8933."
