An online Twitter poll gauging the best fan bases in the NFL outraged Bills fans earlier this week after their opponent, Tennessee Titans fans, allegedly paid thousands of dollars for Twitter bots to sway the poll. Bills fans responded by donating thousands of their own dollars, now over $14,000, to the Victor S. Johnson III Nashville Children’s Alliance, a charity that provides support to children who have experienced severe physical or sexual abuse. Del Reid, co-founder of the Bills Mafia and owner of 26 Shirts spoke with WBFO’s Nick Lippa about the situation and why Bills fans keep looking for reasons to give to charity.
