When the Bills took a knee a stadium worker chose to take a walk.
New Era Field employee Erich Nikischer quit his job at the stadium after 30 years Sunday after several Bills players knelt during the national anthem and others locked arms in response to President Donald Trump's remarks.
"I waited until the National Anthem ended, I took off my shirt, threw my Bills hat on the ground, walked out," Nikischer told WGRZ.
He also said he will never go back to New Era Field again and he won't watch another NFL game until protests stop.

Trump needs to invite this guy to the White House, and Stephan Curry can kiss my ass.
Taking the right step. End the protest, or end the NFL. We REFUSE to accept your point of view and you can not force us to participate in your sport.
It starts with a revolt of one.
The NFL is toast.
Wonder if the honchos at USAA will get the message.
We have to all turn our backs on the NFL.
Disrespecting our flag and anthem is corrosive to our nation.
For the football league that purports to be for OUR nation, thats unacceptable.
The league should have nipped this in the bud last year.
They have not and it is spreading.
President Trump was right to call them out.
The New England Pussyhats need a name change.
the thing that gets me is that one protests when on can make changes with the protest. of the general fan witch one is responsible for the change they want and how does not showing respect for are nation gets this change. the thing is if theses players really want change they have the money to invest in that change but we don’t see them do it. what we see is very superficial.
Let the NFL know what you think.
Now aren’t most of these stadiums funded by the government? What is the ownership rights? Maybe the government can take possession and kick these NFL traitors to the street! I’d rather see High school and College Football anyway.
That’s a great idea.... NFL and their commissioner and owners are full on idiots....
You make BILLIONS of dollars a year of the backs of your fans, and you literally spend the day pissing on their legs and telling them its rain....
He also said he will never go back to New Era Field again and he won't watch another NFL game until protests stop.The BLM nitwits think that opposing the US is a winning strategy, and don't like to be called out. Meanwhile, people who love their country and actually work for a living are being told by rich and/or overpaid racist a-hole athletes, who get paid to play a kid's game for part of the year, that they have "white privilege".
Perhaps this is what these NFL players should do. If they are so passionate about their protests, at the start of the national anthem they should take off their jerseys, throw down their helmets, walk out of the stadium and quit their jobs..... Wait, that means they don’t get paid millions of dollars to play a game? Oh hell no!! Can’t I just wear a ribbon???
I doubt it
I posted on USAA today telling them they are backing a loser (NFL).
They're not patriots.
They're the New England Traitors
The problem is most of those local governments are worse than the NFL leadership.
It would be interesting to see all police protections, traffic control, etc. around stadiums and the military color guards, as well as any flyovers ended immediately.
