Buffalo Bills supporters who partake in the fanbase’s trademark table-slamming videos during the pregame tailgates could now face ejection from New Era Field and criminal charges.
On Friday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reported the Bills and local police will be on the lookout for the act, which has led to countless videos on social media in recent years.
“Despite some of the viral videos and social media posts you’ll see, our fans in general are very good, and they are very responsible and have a good time,” Bills vice president of operations and guest experience Andy Major said.
“But we want to make sure that everyone understands that we’re going to hold those folks accountable—the [small] minority of fans that do some of those things out there in the community and on game day that we feel are unsafe—we are going to take care of that with our [security] teams.”
The unique tailgating routine takes its origins from the WWE, where Superstars putting opponents through tables is a central focus in a variety of hardcore matches.
