Is More Security Coming to Buffalo Bills Tailgates? Is It Needed?
The video of a Buffalo Bills fan catching on fire while tailgating at the Ralph on Sunday has sparked debate of safety concerns at Orchard Park game. A fan jumped on a table that was on fire, which led to him catching on fire.
The video has apparently upset Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz, who told WKBW tailgaters seem to "think it's okay to act like idiots" and "anything goes, just because it's a game at the Ralph."
Earlier in the season a video of a couple having sex in one of the parking lots around the Ralph went viral. Another video of a man doing the dizzy bat then running into a bus got national attention. And yet another video of a man dressed as Santa slamming into a table went viral.
With the many viral videos that came from this season do you feel like additional security is necessary at Bills tailgates? Would you take your kids to a Buffalo Bills game or have these incidents soured the experience for you? Behavior has reportedly improved over the last few years at Buffalo Bills games, but does it feel that way to you when you go to a Bills game?
Poloncarz plans to address the unlawful behavior by fans in both private and public lots on game days if necessary even if it requires more security and police officers both in and out of uniforms to be patrolling lots, WKBW reports.
