Sticky Post

FOX sideline reporter Erin Andrews said at halftime that Saints head coach Sean Payton was fuming, "I'm so tired of it, I'm so tired of being on the wrong side of it."

While the company's Twitter account commonly pokes fun at sports fans, the chain's tweet might rub New Orleans customers the wrong way.

"Your NOLA location is about to be a ghost town. But hey get those jokes off," one Twitter user wrote.
To take cheap shots at us after this garbage coming from the refs in three straight games, and after losing Drew, was just cheap and mean spirited. I really hope they go out of business. There isn't anything special about them in the first place, unless you like chain restaurants with cookie cutter stores and bad food that takes forever.

I had a bad experience at the buffalo wild wings in slidell for the buffalo/saints game in 2017. The waitress told us we can have any game on any tv to let her know. So we, and a few others around us, requested the saints game as another game was playing on the tv by us. She got the manager and they both told us they cant changed it because the saints were on every other tv practically so they needed to keep that game on (even though they had no other fans of any other team in the place). So we, and two other couples, turned our table to face a tv with the saints. The manager came back and told us we cannot do that and had to turn the tables back. I told her I will never go to another buffalo wild wings again.

Saw people complaining about this last night.

Really don’t understand what the fuss is about.

I didn’t even assume it to be a slight at first (although I guess it is) just thought they were pointing out Saints fans would be upset at another let down.


Plus, a bunch of Saints fans DID try to organize a lawsuit. So yea, I’m not understanding why everyone’s panties are in a bunch.


I don’t even eat there, but still am not seeing why everyone’s crying over this
You didn't assume it to be a slight because it's not a slight. Why get offended by this, I don't know...

Now that's a good reason to get mad at Buffalo Wild Wings.

They should ALL have grease fires! No one gets hurt except their bottom lines since the insurance will refuse to pay saying it was corporate encouraged arson of their own volition!

Yeah, the poor guy that owns the local franchises was obviously NOT on board with this, and apparently he's the one that's going to have to deal with the fallout for the social media dork's boneheaded decision-
This is what I don't like about this situation. Regardless of whether you like eating there or not, that franchise owner had nothing to do with a tweet that was probably sent from some idiot out-of-state somewhere. If I were the owner, I would be looking into the possibility of a lawsuit.

Didn't know they also did an emoji face to match Brees's face after his injury, too. Whoever has the keys to their Twitter account is a piece of shirt.

Corp HQ in MN and parent co in Atlanta. Makes sense.




I am going to miss their Thai Curry and Jamaican Jerk wings, though.

I took it as them making our fan base out to be petty because a couple fans filed a lawsuit because of the NFCCG. So I can understand why people are offended.
