Buffalo Bills Fans Were Ready To Storm The Field

There's a few weird things about the following story. First, someone called the police in Buffalo to report that Bills fans were planning to storm the field and tear down the goalposts if their team beat the New England Patriots. Why someone would call ahead is beyond me, but police were on high-alert. They even unscrewed the goalposts.

You'd think this was a joke, but it is, apparently, a serious report (via Greg Bedard).

Local news in Buffalo reporting that police received a strong tip that fans would tear down the goal posts if Bills won. That's why they unscrewed the goal posts, which are now back up.

Fans did not storm the field and carry the goalposts off into the sunset, so all the preventative work was for naught. Still, the whole story seems just a little ridiculous. Why not let Bills fans take 'em down? It was a big win, and the Bills are 3-0 to start the season.
