BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - 26 Shirts founder Del Reid today criticized the alleged bad behavior of some Bills fans after Sunday's playoff game:
I’m proud Bills fans travel well, but there’s obviously a contingent that need to learn there’s a better way to treat a host city with respect than tackling its team's fans while they carry their coolers through a tailgate, and setting bonfires after the game that require the FD.
According to Action News Jax, the Jacksonville Fire Department was dispatched to a call of a fire in a parking lot at the EverBank Stadium, where both Jaguars and Bills fans were tailgating.
The local station's traffic reporter was in parking lot X and said Bills fans (allegedly) started the bonfire. Though we currently do not have permission to use video from the scene, reports say Bills fans were heard chanting and cheering as local fire crews put out the flames.
According Action News Jax reporter Cole Heath's twitter: "blue cans, melted broken folding tables [were] all part of a bonfire..."
