I've been a Washington Redskins/Football Team/Commanders fan since 1974 when they were favored to defeat the Dolphins in the Super Bowl. After nearly 50 years, it may be time to root for a new team.

No, it's not because they changed their name or because they haven't been a good team on (and off) the field for many years. It may be time to change my allegiance to Buffalo and become a member of the Bills Mafia.

The reason isn't because the Bills are a great team on (and off) the field, it's because of the things that their fans do. In this case, the Bills fans have come together to donate to Miami Dolphins QB, Tua Tagovailoa's charity.

On Sunday, September 25th, Bills linebacker Matt Milano pushed Tagovailoa to the ground in the second quarter. He reached for his helmet and struggled to get to his feet.

He was taken to the locker room to be evaluated and was cleared to re-enter the game. Then on Thursday, September 29th, Tagovailoa suffered a concussion against Cincinnati. This is when the Buffalo fans came together to donate to his foundation.

Bills Mafia Donates To The Tua Foundation

Tua's foundation is dedicated to the support of youth initiatives, health and wellness, and other charitable causes. Some of them donated specific amounts including $21.19 which was the score of the Bills-Dolphins game.

Other Bills Mafia fans donated $17.01 which is a combination of Josh Allen and Tagovailoa's number. This isn't the first time that they've done this, they also helped out Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson.

In 2021, he also suffered a concussion in a game against the Bills. After that, the Buffalo fans donated around $150,000 to Jackson’s charity of choice. Lets not forget in 2018, when the B Mafia donated to Bengals QB, Andy Dalton's charity.

They donated over $300,000 after Cincinnati beat Baltimore and that allowed Buffalo to make the playoffs for the first time in a long time...17 years to be exact. Kudos to Buffalo and the Bills Mafia. LET'S GO BUFFALO and keep on donating to these great causes.

Now I need Washington to try the same thing and see if that will change their karma around.
