Former Buffalo Bills star linebacker Takeo Spikes was at the team’s game against the Las Vegas Raiders and got a chance to send the fans into a frenzy before kickoff.
But Spikes wrote on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, that he didn’t stay for the entire game because of where his seats were. Spikes posted a photo that showed him looking over Highmark Stadium from a suite, but he had an obstructed view.

“Congrats to @BuffaloBills for getting a dominant win in home opener,” he wrote. “I wish I could’ve stayed for the entire game but seating accommodations (sic) were NOT the standard.”
“How you gonna have the @NFLLegends supporting with this obstructed sample size of a view!? Felt like I was in timeout.”
Spikes added, “Disappointing is an understatement.”
The Bills didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.

The Bills won the game, 38-10. Josh Allen had three touchdown passes and was 31 of 37 with 274 passing yards.
Spikes was an All-Pro and a two-time Pro Bowler during his years in Buffalo. It was the only time he earned those honors during his career. He played five years with the Cincinnati Bengals, three with the San Francisco 49ers, two with the San Diego Chargers and another with the Philadelphia Eagles.
