As we move toward the end of the season, the cream separates from the crap. And fewer and fewer fans will want to pay to watch the crap.
Consequently, the Bills’ home game on Sunday against the Jaguars has been blacked out, with more than 15,000 unsold tickets.
It’s not looking any better for next Sunday. With the Rams coming to town, the Bills have more than 10,000 tickets remaining.
“It is tough,” Bills running back Fred Jackson said, via the Associated Press. “You definitely want a full crowd to play in front of. But we will come out and play and try and put on a show for the fans that are in the stands. That is just about it, come out there and do what we can and show up and play football. The fans that are coming out to watch, hopefully we can go out and get a win for them.”
Coincidentally, the two upcoming opponents are often linked to relocation rumors. The Bills’ inability to move merchandise could cause more to suggest that the Bills are perhaps the team that should be moving.
