NFL Fans that Do Not Meet Stadium Regulated Vaccination Status Find Players Willing to Help

A National Football League star wide receiver has decided to fight fire with fire by offering to buy tickets for a fan and his 10-year-old daughter who cannot attend a Buffalo Bills football game due to the Bill’s strict vaccination requirement.

The Buffalo Bills have joined the Seattle Seahawks, Las Vegas Raiders, and New Orleans Saints in requiring fans to have at least one shot of the COVID-19 vaccine to attend games from now until October 31. Fans over the age of 12 will be required to be fully vaccinated to enter the stadium after October 31.

“In compliance with the Erie County Department of Heath’s directive, the Buffalo Bills and Highmark Stadium announced today that all guests age 12 and older will be required to provide proof of at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccination to attend Bills games at Highmark Stadium until October 31st, at which point of complete.” the Buffalo Bills media team tweeted.

Beasley, who has been vocal in his opposition to the NFL’s vaccination requirement for players, coaches, and fans, was contacted by a fan who was devastated after learning he wouldn’t be allowed to take his daughter to a hometown Bills game in December, despite having already booked his tickets.

In the gesture of kindness, Beasley responded by offering his entire family of seven to buy tickets to attend an Away game.

“If you find an away game you are able to go to then I will buy the tickets for you guys. DM(direct message) me names and everything snd(and) I’ll figure out the best way to make it happen. [I] Wish she could witness the mafia! “ Bealsy responded.

Reid Ferguson, the Bills’ long snapper, followed Beasley’s lead and made the same offer to fans.

“I hear you brother. If you can find your way to an away game this year, tix are on me. #BillsMafia. “ said Ferguson to another disgruntled fan.

Despite the NFL’s failures on several critical social problems, notably their treatment of fans and players during the Covid-19 outbreak, witnessing a professional football game is a great American privilege that every law-abiding person should be free to enjoy without discrimination. Cole Beasley and Reid Ferguson should be applauded for helping a Father and his family enjoy those great American privileges.

Perhaps this act of compassion will inspire a player as well as fan movement against the NFL’s higher-ups’ requirements and influence a change.
