LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Bills Mafia is in hot water with the The Transit Drive-In Theatre in Lockport.

According to a post made Sunday night on the drive-in theatre’s Facebook page, fans left the property trashed after watching the Bills vs. Ravens game Saturday night.

“We spent close to 7 hours today cleaning up after the game from Saturday in addition to 1 hour after the game ended. We have never seen the lots that bad after movies or concerts,” the post began.

“Normally, cleanup is not such a big deal, but we are not at full staff as we would be during the summer months, and cleaning outdoors isn't exactly fun or easy when it's in the mid 30s, and windy.

It seems as though Bills Mafia is highly skilled at breaking tables, but not so great at cleaning up after themselves. If you can bring prodigious amounts of beer and chips with you, it shouldn't be that difficult to bring a couple of 30 gallon trash bags along, too. Maybe our expectations were too high for an event that was free for the public to attend.

Even with strong sales in the snack bar, most of those profits were absorbed by payroll costs for parking, security, kitchen staff, and cashiers. We are not permitted to change admission for sports events, as we have been advised by our attorneys. Besides, we really are not doing these events for the money. It would just be nice to not have to spend 8 hours cleaning up after fans who can't or won't clean up after themselves.”

Transit Drive-In said it was trashed by the Bills Mafia.

The post has now been shared more than one thousand times.

It said the theatre plans to make announcement regarding the AFC Championship game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday afternoon.
