When Von Miller was traded to the Los Angeles Rams last season, he dealt with an emotional goodbye to the Denver Broncos, the team that drafted him and a city that he called home for his entire career. He instantly fit in with the Rams and winning quickly healed all pain, especially winning a Super Bowl.

Miller discussed how he had similar feelings leaving Los Angeles in free agency, this time by choice, though. Miller decided to sign with the Bills this past offseason, but he claimed he has almost instant reservations about his decision, claiming he was homesick and missing LA and Aaron Donald.

That feeling didn't last long though once Bills Mafia found out about it. Commonly referred to as the most dedicated fan base in the entire NFL who will do anything to help their players feel like they're part of the family. Miller claims after complaining about the toilet paper during a training camp interview, Bills Mafia stepped up and sent him "tons and tons and tons of toilet paper."

This immediately made Miller know he was welcome and felt right at home. That's not exactly the most conventional way to make someone feel welcome, but Bills Mafia has always been everything but conventional, and that's what makes them so great.

They feel connected to this team and it's players, and for anyone that says being a sports fan doesn't mean you're part of the team, or you have any effect on the players, Bills Mafia proves time and time again those people couldn't be more wrong.
