Former players deserve to receive top-notch treatment whenever possible.
Takeo Spikes, who was invited to the Bills’ second game of the season as a legend, appeared to be less than pleased with the way he was accommodated.
The former linebacker, who was part of the Bills from 2003 to 2006, expressed his dissatisfaction with his seating arrangements during the team’s Week 2 victory over the Raiders. Spikes took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to voice his thoughts.
“Congrats to @BuffaloBills for securing a dominant win in their home opener,” Spikes tweeted. “I wish I could’ve stayed for the entire game, but the seating arrangements were subpar. How can you have @NFLLegends supporting with such a limited view!? It felt like I was in timeout.”
Spikes shared these comments in response to a video of himself hyping up Bills fans just before the opening kickoff.
At 46 years old, Spikes is most notably recognized for his time with the Bills, where he earned Pro Bowl honors in 2003 and 2004, achieving first-team All-Pro status in the latter season. However, he also spent three seasons with the 49ers from 2008 to 2010.
Spikes was initially drafted in the second round of the 1998 NFL Draft by the Bengals, where he spent his first five seasons before joining the Bills.
An alumnus of Auburn University, Spikes also had brief stints with the Eagles and the Chargers. He retired after the 2012 season, boasting an impressive career stat line of 1,431 tackles, 29 sacks, 19 interceptions, and 16 forced fumbles.
