"Going through folding tables is definitely a thing, and we all know Buffalo loves its things."
That's how the Buffalo News responded to a statement released by the Erie County Sheriff's Office in advance of Sunday's season home opener against the Los Angeles Chargers.
At issue is the following line in the Sheriff's announcement on its Facebook page.
"Table Slamming is not permitted and violators will be ejected and could face criminal charges."
"Table slamming may seem stupid, but a subset of people take enjoyment from it, and they're not really hurting anyone but themselves. Anyway, the Bills and the county want fewer stunts like this. If table slamming is your thing, you'll have to risk ejection or take your tailgate to a privately owned lot."
