TEAMS: Buffalo Bills

Bills fan Jerry Wojcik moved from Buffalo to Tampa in 2001.  For some reason he remains a Bills fan and really wants to keep up with current Bills news.  Unlike the rest of us, he has chosen not to rely on the internet, but instead registered to receive text messages straight from the Bills.  He signed up for their program earlier this season. He wanted to be kept up-to-date with the 411 in and around Ralph Wilson Stadium, but now he’s saying he’s been kept  too informed and he’s suing the team. According to Wojcik’s attorneys, their client subscribed for a program that pledged to send him no more than five text alerts per week.  So why is Wojcik upset?  According to him, the Bills have been texting him too often.  In the compliant, he claims he instead received (and I’m putting this in all caps to stress the severity) SIX MESSAGES ONE WEEK AND SEVEN A FEW WEEKS LATER. In his second full week after signing up, from Sept. 23-29, Wojcik received six text messages from the team, the court papers state. From Oct. 14-20, he received seven. HE WANTED NO MORE THAN FIVE.  HE GOT SIX (AND SEVEN) AND IS SUING ABOUT IT.  THREE EXTRA TEXT MESSAGES OVER THE COURSE OF SEVERAL WEEKS AND HE FILED A LAWSUIT. Wojcik’s argument rests in the amount of spam text messages that Americans receive daily.  The case is designed to be a class-action suit.  According to the Buffalo News: Text message spam costs Americans hundreds of millions of dollars per year, attorneys Scott D. Owens and James S. Giardina stated, in written replies to email questions. They also cited two spam-settlement cases of about $20 million and $47 million. I won’t spew legal jargon here, but this is frivolous.  If I’m the judge, I couldn’t kick this out of my courtroom quick enough.  As if the Bills aren’t embarrassing themselves enough, now they have their fans joining in.

  • OH MY GOD they promissed 5 and he got 6 one week and then 7. Quick grab a lawyer and sue baby sue. What a completely anal retentive jerk, purly money motivated money. Bet he has never sued a spammer for filling his e-mail with trash, of course not there is no money to be had so lets sue a professional sports team for one or two messages of the limit. Two bad they were trying to do what you asked for by keeping you reasonable informed. without excess. Last time I looked 7 was not excessive compared to 5. Useless trash.

Bills Waste Golden Opportunity In Foxboro

Ryan Fitzpatrick Calls Brandon Spikes a ‘Punk,’ ‘Took a Cheap Shot’ in Earlier Game

Since the Bills and Patriots are (most likely) done playing each other this season, it looks like Brandon Spikes won’t have another opportunity to lay more lumber on Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in 2012. Following New England’s 37-31 victory at Gillette on Sunday, the Harvard grad took a parting shot at the Patriots’ linebacker in his press conference. “I think...

Kneel before Necci: Bills/Pats Recap

The Bills and the Patriots played an NFL Game that ended in heartache & despair.   My thoughts:   MVP: Ryan Fitzpatrick. We, myself leading the parade, like to bash Fitz. The weak arm, the inability to throw it deep, the inaccuracy, and the ever looming "Fitz Pick" that kills this team like it did yesterday. But today, Ryan Fitzpatrick played probably...

Predator Strikes Again

Brandon "Predator" Spikes certainly isn't one of the most liked players on the field when it comes to game time.
