This seems kind of harsh! A fan falls out of Ralph Wilson Stadium during Sunday’s game and ends up getting banned. What’s up with that? Well, according to the Buffalo Bills organization, this fan was acting irresponsibly when he slid down a hand railing and fell into the crowd.
“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,” Bills’ President and CEO Russ Brandon said in a statement issued on Monday afternoon.
“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.”
The fan who fell seemed to be doing well, considering the person he landed broke his fall. That man suffered more serious injuries. Both were taken to the hospital and later released.
The lesson: don’t have too much fun at the game. It could be your last one.
