Mafia “Monday” Interview with @MeaghanMcCarthy

Pro Player Insiders (web:, Twitter: @PlayerInsiders) is working to expand its scope from player perspective stories to also include the fans of the NFL, engaging with the league’s most passionate fanbases. We are proud to be the FIRST fanbase they contacted and are looking forward to helping blaze this trail for them.
Mafia Monday

Pro Player Insiders

The first visible example of our partnership is the cross-posting of our weekly feature, “Mafia Monday.” Mafia Monday was a very popular feature last year, where we interview a selected member of the FAMbase. This is an interactive element where members of our community can get to know each other and build unity by becoming a little transparent.


Week 8’s Mafia “Monday” interview is @MeaghanMcCarthy.

How long have you been a Bills Fan, and what’s your earliest Bills memory?
I’ve never NOT been a Bills fan, but as a kid the last thing I wanted to do was sit still and watch sports! So funny how it has changed. Even though I wasn’t a diehard from the time I was young, my Mom really influenced me and I remember Flutie Flakes more than anything. I think my earliest memory, though it’s vague, is our last playoff game. I remember not understanding how we had lost, and my step-dad smashing our flower plants (IT’S NOT THEIR FAULT, poor flowers, haha). Yes, I was in 1st grade the last time we were in the playoffs. I was born in ’92 a few days before the Super Bowl and yet I still bleed blue, red, and white.

About Del Reid

Del Reid became a Bills fan shortly after coming into this world, having been raised in a home that actually had a framed picture of OJ Simpson on the wall in the living room (until it came down in 1994). Del has always had a passion for bringing people together to celebrate things they share in common. As a result, he (quite accidentally) ended up co-founding the #BillsMafia movement among Bills fans in social media -- which to this point is the coolest thing that has ever happened to him aside from his relationship with God, his wife, and his two awesome kids.
