    At least most Bills fans appear not to buy what that moron is selling.

    The Bills are a BAD franchise from top to bottom. If they move, who replaces them in the AFCE? The league would have to restructure the divisions. Geography says Ravens, history says the Colts.

    I had no problem with Bills fans - I even pulled for them a little in 2002 when they got Bledsoe - until the opening week of 2003. They got Lawyer Milloy from us right before the season started, got lucky in that game, and suddenly they were The King of Everything. Just like the Jets when Parcells and Curtis Martin went there; it's pretty stupid to talk trash about a team when your own team sucked until you got that team's coaches and/or players on your side, IMHO.

    And yes, Brady's doing well because the O-line is doing good. The same thing could be said of Favre during his hot streak last year, or any of a hundred other good QBs. Look at Jim Plunkett. By the same token, how many QBs have a ton of time in the backfield and still can't do jack?

    Not that I hate Bills fans now. Their team hired Chan Gailey to lead them to the promised land; they deserve pity more than hate.

    And while they're there, they can head over to Green Bay, take a look at the Packers, and then STFU that the league is trying to push them out of Buffalo because it doesn't want to support small market teams. If they're in danger of being moved, it's because Ralph Wilson hasn't kept up with the times.

    I work with a devoted Steelers fan, yea we have fun, but I actually asked him why people hate the Patriots so much, his first answer was "because they win" followed by "the Patriots are smug about it"! ummm, ok, it comes down to one thing, jealousy, and it's ok to hate a rival, in a sense of the word, but it seems to be everyone dislikes them, it's funny

    LOL...this is funny considering how few fanbases are more obnoxiously smug when the team is winning than Steelers fans.

    They HATED Smerlas up there. They think he's mentally challenged. Maybe Freddie has something to do with the hate.

    Seriously, though. Bills fans are a beaten lot. They hate how their once-great franchise has been dragged doen and no one for the most part, is whining about being a small market. They see GB and Jax. They all remember the Kelly years when they were great. They're just bumming now.

    Yes. It's not the so-called "small market" thing that's the problem with them. It's ownership mismanagement. They've got a passionate loyal fan base for sure and always will, but Mr. Wilson really needs to retire and hand the reins over to someone else and spiff up the place change the culture a little. I hope they do turn it around for their sake and I hope they don't move. The Bills are by far the least hateable team in the division. I and I'm sure most will probably start hating them again a little if/when they ever start winning again, but not like the other two for sure.

    They are in danger of being moved because Buffalo is a destitute sh*thole. The Buffalo skyline looks about as impressive as Springfield's.

    They actually have really good fans, I feel sorry for them but the NFL should push for them to go to LA or Toronto. Buffalo is just not an NFL city.

    A California team by the name "Bills" would be pretty appropriate.
    They could change the logo to a 0 $.

    EDIT: To respond to the OP: I found a lot of people glad when the Cowboys finally started losing and would imagine the same sentiment exists about the Patriots around the league.

    "Yup. Patriots got 2 1sts, 2 2nds, and 2 3rds in this year's draft. Getting back starters from IR too. They should be alot better next year. Something to look forward too. :) "

    i think we should invite some of these bills fans over to be patriots supporters for the post season, LOL, some of them are pretty smart guys

    I just love this "Brady has 10 seconds on every throw" bull****. It's simply hilarious. I especially enjoy it when Colts fans say it, as if Manning has never had a fantastic OL for 98% of his career, including a HOF candidate LT.

    Brady has been sacked nearly 30 times and has taken a beating in several games. He just has uncanny pocket presence, and buys himself time on nearly every throw with his shifting in the pocket. But, sure, he was a sixth round pick so he can't possibly have any talent. If anyone could be Tom Brady behind an OL like ours I just wonder why teams aren't drafting five lineman a year and investing everything they have on the guys that reach free agency. Pay Fitzpatrick 2 million, get 3 great O-Lineman and he'll be the greatest QB of all time, it's that simple!

    I think the biggest reason Bills fans hate the Patriots is because they are no longer relevant. It's one thing to loathe a despised rival, but when the separation between the two organizations becomes so great that opposing fans are more likely to feel sorry for you than anything else, that's just sad and has to be very difficult to accept.

    Every year there's some popular reason on opposing team's forums for why Brady is so successful, but really just a hack. In the past, the answer has been it's all Belichick, Brady's just a system quarterback, he's throwing to Randy Moss, etc., etc., etc., "Any QB could be as successful as Brady if he had that much time to throw" is just this year's hater answer to why Brady is successful. There's very little acknowledgment of the fact that he moves well in the pocket and is willing to take a hit. If he flinched every time he heard footsteps, he'd be a different QB.

    That was overall a pretty well balanced thread. Their fans were pretty honest and the last decade has left them pretty beaten down. It read like a Bruins forum not to long ago. About the only thing I'd disagree with is the Pats fans only started after the SB. Yes like any championship team the bandwagon has gotten heavy but there's tons of fans like myself that have been around since the 70's or before. Also this team has been pretty much a contender every year since 94. Two losing seasons in all that time and the best NFL record.

    I would have loved for the Bills to have won at least one Super Bowl during their Dominance. For the Fans not to have been rewarded with just one. It has to Hurt.

    We Patriots Fans are in Great Place Right Now.

    I would loved for them to have beaten the Cowboys, just once. They even got two shots at it.
