If you have an issue, Bills Mafia will fix it.
From breaking tables at tailgates to making massive donations to opponents’ charities, their fanbase is one of the most passionate in the NFL world.
Von Miller, who just signed a six-year, $120 million deal with Buffalo, is already experiencing the fan base first hand. During a Thursday press conference, he said fans are sending him “boxes on boxes on boxes” of different toilet papers to the dorm rooms at St. John Fisher University in Rochester, N.Y., where the Bills have their training camp.
During his first training camp media availability, the edge rusher was asked about what it was like staying in the dorms for training camp. He described the experience as “different” for a 33-year-old staying in dorms.
“I’m 33 years old and toilet paper’s different, the beds are different, no TV in the dorm room. It’s a little bit different,” Miller said. “Got to make up your bed and change and do all that type of stuff every day. It takes some getting used to, but I’m all for it.”
Fans saw his complaints about toilet paper and began to help him out.
“The last time I was here, I said something about the toilet paper and four days later like I got all types of toilet paper just in the mail and wipes and plant-free wipes from all types of fans,” Miller said on Thursday.
He said the first received was a four-pack, then it was an eight-pack, then there were some wipes.
“Fans are always great, but this is just different,” Miller said. “You say one thing in front of the media, you don’t even expect it to blow up like it did and it blows up and you’ve got fans reaching out and so many different vibes and so many different people that’s trying to help out and make your time here great. I’m appreciative of it.”
In 2021, Miller appeared in 15 games for the Rams and Broncos, recording 50 tackles, 9.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and a pass deflection.
