For those of you that are unaware of who Kyle Johnson is, he is supposedly a 14 year old kid who I got the pleasure of being introduced to because he was randomly messaging people in Bills groups asking for money. His story was that he and his family were stranded 2 hours away from home and they were living out of their car, they needed your help… $30 for gas $30 for food. For over two weeks the Johnson’s were stranded just 2 hours away from home, even after talking to people that actually sent them money, Kyle still persistently messaged people asking them for money.
Forget about the fact that the Bills had just a 7% chance of making the playoffs before heading into their game against the Redskins last week, it was still a chance. For a team that hasn’t made the playoffs in this long that 7% chance at least gave us some sort of hope, at least some reason to keep our eyebrow raised. When the Bills seemingly pissed that game away in an almost embarrassing fashion it should come to no surprise that the fans were not amused, honestly not many could blame the fans for venting their anger or frustration about it either.
Those of you that follow what I have done here at Buffalo Bruises know that I am more than passionate about cleaning up the fan base here in Buffalo and holding people accountable for their actions through absolute clarity. Before I started this blog I wrote about the Bills for several different websites, that very quickly led to me taking over the managing editor duties of Cover32’s Bills page. I enjoyed that job too, mainly because it involved reading articles about the Bills that I otherwise would probably never read and getting different views of the team was always really interesting to me. We have some VERY passionate fans in Buffalo and having to regularly communicate with them and edit their articles was something I enjoyed more than anything.
So most Bills fans are not in the best mood right now after losing by 3 points to the Jacksonville Jagaurs. The final score of 34-31 really doesn’t properly represent the absolute shit show that the EJ Manuel led Bills put on this week and even considering everything that went wrong for us, we still had a chance to win or tie the game with a 2 minute drive.
For all of you NFL fans out there you can see the success of teams playing a regular season game in London, England. I mean, ratings are up, the games sell out and this season there is 3 games being played there. The New York Jets vs. Miami, Buffalo vs. Jacksonville and Detroit vs. Kansas City. Jacksonville will continue to play a game in London every season over the next few years. This trend shows you just how much the NFL loves money.
As some of you know I recently got into a bit of a spat with a local Buffalo charity called “Bills Fan Thunder” after I found out that the president of the group said something I found very disturbing, that combined with my knowledge of them working with a person accused of scamming children with cancer really led to me losing my shit. Some people didn’t agree with the way I handled my response to that, but I really don’t care what anyone thinks about it because I would respond the same way all over again if given the opportunity.
Anyone with knowledge of what goes on behind the scenes between two of the more popular Bills groups on social media ‘Bills 4 Life’ and ‘Bills Fan Thunder’ knows that there is drama and hatred between the two groups that almost seems irreparable. Its honestly something very gritty and nasty that has developed between the two groups and nobody wants to just come right out and say it.
So its been a few day’s since I wrote my article about Bills Fan Thunder and them acting like a bunch of scum bags, and let me tell you it hit more than a few nerves. Make no mistake, when you write horrible things about a person or group of people that do some really awesome things for the community you are naturally going to get some backlash. I absolutely got that backlash, funny thing is that I received far more messages about how I was right about Bills Fan Thunder than I got about me being a piece of shit for writing the article.
So its been a while since we here at Buffalo Bruises called out one of our own for being a downright shitty person. To be honest, its been nice not seeing giant pieces of shit infect our circle of otherwise awesome Bills fans and if I never have to write about another shitty Bills fan again nobody will be happier than me. Unfortunately that day has yet to arrive and we realistically shouldn’t be holding our breath for that day to come any time soon, the world is full of pieces of shit and no fan base is ever safe from these people oozing in and giving a bad name to the group.
The Patriots didn’t beat the Steelers last weekend. The Steelers beat themselves by blowing assignments, coverages, missing two field goals, a toe out of bounds and leaving the only player to fear on the Pat’s offense besides Brady wide open countless times. This is hilarious to me because it’s not like you can’t see “Gronk”, he has a large frame, is 6ft 6 inches tall, and weighs 265. That man is a mountain.
Where do we begin? My original plan for this article was slightly different when I woke up this morning, but then I received a picture text in the afternoon that has altered how this article will eventually unfold. So on top of the original plan for this article which is showing Aidan Kearney’s actual involvement with Turtleboy Sports, I’ll also be filling you in on a little something that has been going on behind the scenes of this story. First lets get to that picture text I received, here take a look…
It had been 10 years since the Buffalo Bills last tasted the sweet nectar of the playoffs when they hired Doug Whaley. The Bills were searching for someone to come in and help turn things around. A new eye for talent one would say they needed.
