Bills ban man who fell from upper deck


On Sunday at the Buffalo Bills game against the New York Jets at Ralph Wilson Stadium, a fan fell from the 300-level to the 200-level below. While it was an accident, it is different from other instances of this happening. Usually it is people posing for pictures and leaning too far or leaning over to catch a ball.

This guy decided to slide down the railing on the edge of the upper deck. He landed on a fan in the level below who suffered a head injury. He injured his shoulder in the fall. Bills CEO Russ Brandon has decided to ban the fan from future games.

“The irresponsible behavior that occurred at yesterday’s game by the fan who fell from the upper deck is a violation of our Fan Code of Conduct and cannot, and will not, be tolerated,” Brandon said in the statement. “This individual will not be permitted back into Ralph Wilson Stadium. The vast majority of our fans who attend Bills home games at Ralph Wilson Stadium do so in a responsible manner and we continue to work diligently to eliminate those individuals who violate our Fan Code of Conduct from game days at our stadium. We are cooperating with the Erie County Sheriff’s Office during their investigation of this incident and we want to extend our best wishes for a speedy recovery to the fan who was injured in the 200 level.”
