Gailey Approaches Heckling Fans


Much like many Bills fans out there, I was very skeptic when I heard the Bills hired Chan Gailey as their next head coach. But from what I’ve seen and heard since the start of mini camp, I am really starting to like his no nonsense approach; and this doesn’t just apply to his players.

The Canadian Press reports:

Buffalo Bills coach Chan Gailey won’t put up with fans criticizing his players during training camp, and he has let them know it.

Immediately after practice ended Tuesday morning, Gailey marched to a group of teenagers standing near the field, and told them off for heckling players. Gailey said if “you dog one of us, you dog all of us.”

Gailey then told them that Bills players would not go to that section of the stands to sign autographs.

A couple of members of the group spent part of practice focusing much of their criticism on quarterback Trent Edwards, who’s attempting to reclaim the starting job he lost last season.

This just goes to show that Gailey is really trying to change the culture of Buffalo Bills football. It’s obvious that he cares about his players, and won’t let some punk kids get in the way. I must say I’m very impressed.
