Takeo Spikes saw the Bills opener as a legend and got the worst seats in the house

Linebacker Takeo Spikes may have only spent three seasons in Buffalo, but they were three legendary seasons. A two-time Pro Bowler, Spikes’ 2004 season remains the stuff of myth when he was a first team All-Pro on the back of 98 tackles, 3.0 sacks, 5 interceptions and 4 forced fumbles.

The man was an absolutely wrecking ball, and he needed a wrecking ball to even see the game on Sunday.

Spikes returned to Orchard Park as the hype man for the game vs. the Raiders, before taking his seat in a suite that had a totally obscured view because of the balcony. Sure, there’s a school of thought that this is a a minor annoyance in a 50-year-old stadium, but the Bills have a pretty bad track record of treating their former legends poorly.

A new publicly-funded stadium is in the works, and if there’s anything that needs to be added it better be a way to honor the game’s legends better. Forget the view for a second, the man is clearly sitting in an uncomfortable restaurant chair at a Walmart table.

C’mon Bills, do better.
