Bills Fans Help Bengals Charity

A very unusual thing happened in a football game, and it’s going to help the families of some ill and physically challenged kids.
The Buffalo Bills football team hasn’t been in the playoffs for a long time. In fact, the last time was in 2000–more than 17 years ago. They were the last team in any of the four major sports in North America (football, baseball, basketball, hockey) to make the playoffs in the 21st Century. Now that’s a drought!*
But that all changed this year and the Buffalo Bills got to go to the playoffs.

In 2011, Running back, Fred Jackson, scored 6 touchdowns in just 10 games for the Buffalo Bills.

Physically Challenged Bills Fan Protests Blackout Rule

Ralph Wilson Stadium – the home field for the Buffalo Bills football team – seats more than 70,000 people.

If the Bills do not sell every last ticket to a home game, the game is not shown on TV.

This is a rule put in place by the National Football League (NFL). It’s called a “blackout rule.” TV games are “blacked out” – not shown – if the stadium is not full.
