The Buffalo Bills fanbase is a fairly strong one, but it has waned quite a bit. The Bills are not a team that is easily swept under the rug. They’ve been there before and come back. It is a story that is much worse for the team than it is for the supporters.
The Buffalo Bills have not been to a Super Bowl since the 1996 season. They’ve had to overcome some famous names: Jim Kelly, Andre Reed, Thurman Thomas, and of course, Rob “The Bus” Johnson. They’ve had to deal with the complications of a franchise with a small population, which is only good for one kind of team.
The truth is the Buffalo Bills have been the most overpaid NFL team in the league over the past few seasons. The Bills have paid players in the range of $50 million for some players, which is more than what the Miami Dolphins, Detroit Lions, and the Cincinnati Bengals have spent.
Now, it could be argued that those $50 million figure are being spent over many years, and thus the Bills are getting their money’s worth out of those high-priced players. However, the recent past has proved this isn’t the case.
A community of fans formed in the Buffalo area in the mid ’80s by the same members of the Bills Mafia. They had a very strong bond and even formed friendships in each other’s homes-something that can’t be said for most fans. The Buffalo Bills also fostered a friendship with many within the community, and the players would often go as far as to take fanbases to events.
What is Bills Mafia?
The Bills Mafia is a bit of a tricky fandom to pin down. What started as a tweet from a fan has became a worldwide identity of Buffalo Bills fans. It’s not just social media, but is a community of people who share some common beliefs, and more.
Bills Mafia is a movement that started out as a loose grouping of fans at Ralph Wilson Stadium, but has now spread to other communities throughout the world. This is a movement that is dedicated to bringing together individuals who hold a passion for the Buffalo Bills.

Who started Bills Mafia?
ESPN analyst Adam Schefter retweets something posted on Twitter from Johnson, a Buffalo Bills player. This upsets some of the fans of the Buffalo Bills.
There was also a brief controversy surrounding the usage of the pronoun “they” to refer to the alleged perpetrators of the Las Vegas shooting. The controversy arose after some critics accused the media of gender stereotyping the perpetrators of the shooting.
The tweet was a big deal, and many fans immediately jumped on Twitter to mock Schefter for his actions. A few fans went so far as to call for Schefter to be fired over the incident. Schefter blocked the troublemakers, but that cemented the beginning of a revolution in sports fan history.
#BillsMafia is born
The beginning of Bill’s Mafia came about when the gang began to create a Twitter account that they would use to be involved with the team. The account, @BillsMafia, was developed by the group as a place where fans and media could be updated on the team without having to use official channels. From there, the gang began to build their Twitter followers.
Linebacker Nick Barnett and the Bills Mafia on Twitter joined forces and became one giant entity on Twitter. The two groups of fans shared tips and tips with each other on how to be a good fan, and this turned into several viral tweets. Barnett ended up signing a deal with the Bills and was one of the most popular signings in recent times.
Many fans identify as Bills Mafia, but their roots are in the “old school” Bills fans who became disgruntled with their team since 1997. This is due to the “new school” attitude of the organization, but also the departure of several old school greats that have brought the organization into a new era. This was aided by the fact that the name Bills Mafia is in no way affiliated with any organized crime figures, and most Bills fans have rejected that reputation in the past year or so.
Why does the Bills Mafia break tables?
For the uninformed, table smashing is a common practice in Buffalo when the Bills get blown out. Specifically, with the exception of the Bills season opener in Toronto against the Toronto Argonauts in 2014, the Bills fan known as “Dirty Frank” is usually the one responsible for throwing a plastic beer bottle right after the players take the field. The bottle may be thrown at the opposing team, but usually it’s at the opposing fans. After a long, hot loss, the Bills will often celebrate in a large, drunken fashion. As the season moves on, many games will go back-and-forth. At one time, the Bills had a four game winning streak. Fans would get rowdy, and the bottle throwing would begin. This is what’s known as a losing streak.
A video of fans jumping on and smashing tables has been around since the 2015 season when the Bills Mafia gained notoriety for their excessive tailgate parties which included a lot of beer drinking and table smashing.
The other side of the rivalry has led to a bit more violence. Over the years, there have been a few fights and fights. There have been lots of beer and, more recently, fireworks. The most violent incident took place in January 2010. There was a brawl with 15 Bills and 20 Bills fans.
What are Buffalo Bills fans known for?
In the 1970s, after the Bills moved from the Orange Bowl to Ralph Wilson Stadium, Bills fans began referring to the stadium as “The Pinto” due to the grainy look of the playing surface. In turn, the term “Pinto Ron” was coined.
I think we have the original Pinto Ron on Fox. He has been on the road with us the whole year, and he has done a number of different things. He’s been our Pinto Ron, our new Pinto Ron and our old Pinto Ron.
[Interjection]: The next person you ask about Pinto Ron will tell you to look it up on Twitter.
The Bengals and Bills played in the wild-card round of the playoffs in 2018. Both teams were knocked out of the playoffs by the New York Jets.
In the season finale the Jets won 42-13.
After that game, the Bengals and Jets were involved in a fight at the game that was later posted on Twitter by the Jets.
At the game, the Bills were seated behind the Jets’ bench.
They raised more than $2.3 million for their charity, A2K Foundation, and the majority of it will go to student scholarships, which is impressive considering that the Bills Mafia is a loosely run, informal group that is constantly growing.
