Buffalo Bills Fans Petition to Ban Cuomo from Playoff Game

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s plans to attend the Buffalo Bills NFL wildcard playoff game Saturday may be under review. More than 37,000 angry New Yorkers have already signed a petition to ban Cuomo from attending.

Furious over Cuomo’s ongoing lockdowns and the destruction of the state’s economy and education, New Yorkers are making their opinion clear through their recent response. Despite ongoing closures of indoor dining, the Governor approved up to 10 percent capacity (6,700 people) for the Saturday NFL wildcard playoff between the Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts.

Cuomo told Bills owners Kim and Terry Pegula, “I’m going to take my test, I’m going to be out there to watch the game with you, and we look forward to it.” But furious fans have responded in power. The text of the growing petition reads:

“So Cuomo is going to attend our playoff game after telling us that we can only attend at less than 10% capacity? If he thinks he has more right to a seat in that stadium over people who have waited over 20 years for this opportunity, then people better be there to protest his entry. This is OUR team! This is OUR home. We don’t want you here.”

The full text also pointedly attacks Cuomo’s policies: “Lawsuits are popping up left and right because the people have had enough of your crippling effect. Peoples livelihoods are being destroyed. Everything they’ve worked for being taken from them. People tapping into their 401k’s, annuities, investments, retirements, and savings to make ends meet.

“But you know who isn’t struggling? Andrew Cuomo! No, you’re still getting pay raises. And just out of curiosity, did you donate to the Andy Dalton foundation? Did you donate to the Patricia Allen Foundation? If the answer is NO, then you have no place sitting in that stadium come this Saturday. You know who does belong their? True Bills fans! True Billievers!”

The fine print for those 6,700 diehard fans who plan to attend the game is also a bit ridiculous. According to Outkick.com, “Fans wishing to attend the Colts-Bills game will have to produce a negative COVID test that was taken within 72 hours of entering the stadium. Then, after the game, fans will be subjected to contact tracing. That’s right, contact tracing after a negative test.”

This is in addition to wearing a mask, social distancing, and the other typical COVID-19 protocols. And don’t forget, each fan will be required to pay the $63 per COVID-19 test — and save some cash for the $11 parking fee.

But with a recent $25,000 pay raise, Cuomo should be able to handle it—even if his fellow citizens can’t. We get that the Bills are the only team to make the playoffs this year (Sorry, Jets and Giants!), but Buffalo fans clearly don’t want their Governor in the stands. Most also don’t want him in office.

Come November 2022, New Yorkers can cast their votes. Until then, they can at least petition Governor Cuomo to stay out of the stadium of their sole playoff team.

    1. Go Bills !, I really like the Bills even though I am from Pittsburgh and am thoroughly fed up with the Steelers lack of performance. I hope the Bills win the Super Bowl !

    2. Instead of waiting until 2022. File your recall petition for two. Cuomoand deblazio.fix the problem with one fell swoop

  1. THEY OUGHT TO TELL THAT COMMUNIST SOB THERE WILL BE NO GAME IF HE’S THERE. ALS TELLING HIM TO STAY HOME & WATCH IT ON TV.

  2. Stand your ground Bills fans. He HAS ruined all people of NY state. He ABSOLUTELY NO RIGHT to be in your stadium.
    Officials better halt him at the gate. He’s not welcomed , he’s not liked but most of all HE’S NOT WANTED.

    Go Bills

    1. So true, Mary. He, also, is a coward that does not own up to his desicion that ultimately killed so many elderly in nursing homes.

  3. It is about time that the citizens of the states and citys that have been the subject to the destruction, mismanagement of medical care stand up to the Coumo’s of the country and bar them as they still live the life of leisure. Tell the hypocrite to stay away.

  4. This is fantastic. It’s not enough to get me watching football again (I have grown accustomed and pleased to have all that time on a Sunday afternoon), but it’s a step in the right direction politically and socially…

  5. We supported the Buffalo teams for decades, WIN or LOSE. It was such a treat to attend a game in person from back in the day. REAL PEOPLE AND REAL FANS to whom the teams truly belong. The Bills don’t belong to King Cuomo, They are ours, the people of WNY, NYS, AND many other states.

  6. I am a full fledged Patriots fan but I want to say that all my fan power will be oriented to the Bills for however long they are in the playoffs. As to Cuomo the hypocrite, here’s a cream puff: “Is a football blown up of stuffed?” With best regards to all,

    Paul the Pats fan but with an asterisk for the Bills)
