An NFL fanbase that’s very well known for its pre-game escapades is about to be introduced to the most fitting of activities.

“The Billevard” — a fan engagement area organized by the team that features live entertainment, airbursh tattoos, caricature artists and plenty of beer — will reportedly be adding axe throwing to its growing list of attractions.

If there is any team whose fans can ruin a tailgate with some hatchet-related accident, it’s the Bills and their Bills Mafia. Fans may no longer be permitted to bodyslam each other through tables, but chucking axes in the early afternoon after slamming back a few beers sounds like a natural progression.

Buffalo headed into this NFL season with some optimism and at 5-1, the team has been better than many had expected. The Bills are currently second in the AFC East behind the New England Patriots.
