The FanSided 250 was released on Tuesday and the Buffalo Bills ended up 10th in the NFL but were far too low overall at No. 93
The Buffalo Bills have one of the most passionate fan bases in the entire NFL, which showed in the most recent FanSided 250. The problem is, they were all the way down at No. 93 overall, which is far too low.
Before explaining why the Bills Mafia should have been ranked higher, we first need to tell you what the FanSided 250 is. For those unaware, the list is done annually as they rank the hottest fandoms across all forms of entertainment.
On this list you can find anything from Brie Larson fans to those who are into Super Smash Bro’s. There are also many sports teams included, with the Cleveland Browns even coming in at No. 1 last year.
“Bills Mafia has become legendary in NFL circles, with the fans bodyslamming tables in the parking lot before games.” — FanSided 250
For those wondering, this year’s hottest fandom was Marvel, which makes plenty of sense. Their movie, Avengers Endgame, was a huge hit and set many box office records. Coming in behind that fan base isn’t the problem.
The real question is how the Bills passionate fans came in behind fandoms such as Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, Star Trek, and Bachelor Nation.
There were several other fan bases named ahead of the Bills that leaves one scratching their head in confusion.
Do any of these other fan bases subject themselves to physical harm by jumping through tables? Do they throw inappropriate objects at opponents the way Bills Mafia does whenever the hated Tom Brady comes to town?
The one and only team that actually plays in New York has one of the best followings in the entire world. FanSided 250 knows this and gave them their due, but it still feels too low.

Maybe next year we can make a little more noise and get the respect deserved. Hopefully Bills Mafia will make even more noise in 2020 to climb the rankings.
