Here comes the NFL, but over the years I turned into more of a college fan, because, well, I’m a Bills fan…
Can you blame me?
As a Bills fan I have experienced nothing but disappointment. Even the most casual football fan knows about Super Bowl XXV and ‘wide right.’ Many will say that has to be the pinnacle of the disappointment. Of course those same folk can point to the fact that the Bills were an 8 point favorite in the game and should have very well beaten the Giants that evening without the help of Scott Norwood’s foot needed to kick a 47 yard field goal to win. After the game people were calling for his head for missing a FOURTY SEVEN yard field goal. Never mind that at that distance the percentage of all field goal kickers is less than 50%. To blame Norwood for the loss is disingenuous.
Scott Norwood is certainly not to blame for the next THREE Super Bowl losses the Bills endured. Are you kidding me? Four losses in a row? Again, even the most casual football fan knows that number. At least Bills have company with Vikings fans.
Yes four consecutive Super Bowl losses hurt. But do you know what hurts even more? Poor officiating. Allow me set the stage for you.
