A female columnist in Buffalo is taking some pretty reprehensible heat this week from readers after writing a column urging Bills fans to come “back to reality.”A 2-0 start to the season garnered high praise from many Bills’ “crazed” fans.
Jennifer Gish tried to put the early victories in perspective, all but calling a week three victory against the Patriots impossible. And, with the Bills down 21-0 early, she looked pretty good.
But then the Bills won. And Gish’s mailbox exploded with irate Bills fans disparaging her for being wrong and…for being a woman:
“So how does it feel to be both a woman and so wrong about football? I guess those two go hand in hand.”
“…you may want to consider plastic surgery or something, you are one god awful ugly looking female.”
“Maybe you should stay in the kitchen next time.”
“F*** yourself ya stupid C***, Go Bills!”
“How about those Bills now you dumba**? You’re a female too, what the hell do you know?”
This was just a sampling of Gish’s emails. There were more.
The public roots for the Bills because of the teams’ past misfortune and small-market lovability. While this is clearly a very small sect of Buffalo fans, it’s unfortunate some have gone a long way to ruin that.
