The Bills Mafia made it clear that they didn't want New York governor Andrew Cuomo attending Buffalo's playoff game this weekend.
Fans started a petition to keep him out and it quickly racked up thousands of signatures (far more than the 6,700 Cuomo is allowing to attend the game).
Cuomo got the message that Bills fans did not want him there. On Wednesday he announced that he no longer plans to attend the game.
From Larry Brown Sports:
The petition organizer said in his reasoning: “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.”
As of the publishing of this story, nearly 44,000 people had signed the petition.
Cuomo now says he needs to work on a speech and that’s why he won’t attend. Maybe he just got the message from Bills Mafia loud and clear.
It turns out Cuomo isn't as popular with the people as he is with the media. Who knew? His self-absorbed ass clearly didn't.
It's unfortunate that he won't be there. I was really looking forward to a member of the Bills Mafia putting his sorry ass through a table.
