Not-so-subtle fondling in the stands, jumping into fires, alcohol-induced wrestling matches, etc.

Buffalo Bills fans have given Deadspin plenty of material over the last couple years, and provided countless hours (?) of entertainment for which we're all very grateful. 2015 alone prompted the four-minute blockbuster, "The Year in Bills Fans."
