I'm wondering if anyone here is interested in attending a game in Buffalo on November 6 vs. the NY Jets? I was talking with a couple guys at work today about a Bills bus trip and it got me to looking online when I got home, and I found a site called http://www.rallytours.ca which offers exactly what we're looking for. It seems that for $150 you get:
  • bus transportation from Toronto to Buffalo and return
  • a seat in the lower bowl at the game
  • all you can eat at the tailgate party
  • all you can drink at the tailgate party
It says it's $170 per package, but if you get a group of 4 then it drops to $150 per person. I'm wondering if it drops even more if you get a bigger group.Would anyone be interested in going?
When I go to a fast food restaurant, and my order comes to $6.28, I like to give the cashier $18.71. They look at me and say 'What's this?' and I say 'I'm all in'. They usually fold.

I'm gonna keep looking and see if there are better prices somewhere, but it's the best I could find at the moment. I just emailed the guy (I found the ad on kijiji first which linked me to the site) and I asked him if he knows what section the seats are in and if we can get a cheaper price if we bring a bigger group.It does say on the website that they allow a max of 50 people per trip, and the Jets game has 29 seats left. If the seats are by the 30 yard line, then they're about $90 each according to ticketmaster. If they're end zone seating then it drops to $60. If it's the $90 seats then I think the overall price is OK, considering you don't have to worry about driving, cost of gas, all you can eat and drink. If it's $60, then it's a bit of a rip.

I meant the price is really good..$150 for all that is a good deal I think...All you can eat and drink sound great..Unless its sandwiches and bottles of water

Haha, ok I'm not really a huge drinker so for me, it's a bit of a rip, but a lot of guys would definitely be able to get their moneys worth out of this.

All you can drink? As in alcohol? Plus all you can eat and a football game for $150? Sounds like a great deal.

just once if you can, go to a Steelers game. Felt like I was in a church, except with tailgating and football.Never been to a Bills game, but I've heard a lot negatives about there. I thought your trip this summer of the different baseball parks was awesome. Id love to see a college football game personally. I dont know why, but every time I see Alabama vs Ole Miss or something like that, I wanna be there.

Only been to Bills games (about 20).What you will see is the parking lot will look like a nuclear bomb was set off, guys yelling at girls to take their tops off, the washrooms are gross, fights between fans and you will have a hell of a time.

Trying to talk myself into going to the Toledo vs. Boise State game this Friday night. Boise State, National Broadcast, Toledo plays ranked teams pretty well, could be a good one to catch and the drive is less than an hour.

Steve,

It doesn't matter who you start because you have a horse shoe up your ass so far I'm not really sure how you get through the day. You must be gay.

I've been to like a million Insight Bowls, a Holiday Bowl, and a Bears game and they are definitely fun to be at but it gets annoying with the constant TV timeouts. You see all the players standing around waiting for the viewers to get back from the commercials and then wonder why they get a delay of game. They are definitely enjoyable though.

I've been to one Bills game ever, the season finale against Cincinatti like I dunno...7-8 years ago. For someone who really enjoys public drunken behavior and live sports I was surprised at how much it really wasn't my thing. Haven't been back since. Mostly it's just too fucking cold to be fun...might have been better if I was hammered but since I don't drink beer that's kind of hard.

I went to one of those Bills games with a group from Toronto once. I remember it being very cold. I was too young to tailgate, and we got there too late for hot dogs. Also, our entire section of the stands was made up of bus groups from Canada, which hindered the whole experience.My suggestion: higher your own bus, get your own tickets. Don't tell them you're Canadian. Tell them you're a church group or something, hoping they'll think its funny to stick you in a section of hardcore fans.Alternately: just make sure the bus gets there early (easy to offer free food and drinks if the bus only arrives 15 minutes before the game), and make sure your tickets aren't getting you stuck in a tourist section. Or if they do, you have a couple buddies who'll walk with you to where the real fans are.Also, bring a sweater. I don't care if its supposed to be 30 celcius. It's Buffalo, where 30 degrees translates to about -4.
Long signatures are really annoying.

I dont think the Bills have a hardcore section of fans. That place will be filled with Jet's fans more than Bills fans.

Actually I think they do. About at least 40k. They all look like total inbreds.
