Who didn’t see this one coming? We’re surprised it took so long for a fan to sue the NFL…
With NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s new $200 million dollar contract, maybe the fans should demand better customer service. In other words, Goodell should do his job…
TICKET HOLDER SUES:
A New Orleans Saints season ticket holder is suing the team over some of its players protesting during the national anthem.
Lee Dragna, of Morgan City, Louisiana, alleged the players, who either refused to come out of the locker room or took a knee during the national anthem, prevented his family from enjoying Saints games. He is seeking a refund for his season tickets, which cost around $8,000, and attorneys’ fees.
WOW! THE SUIT IS ACTUALLY BEING REVIEWED:
A Saints spokesman declined to comment, saying the suit is being reviewed by the team’s legal counsel.
Mr. Dragna said in the lawsuit that football fans “do not find these protests entertaining.” He claims that he has refused to attend any home games since the season opener on Oct. 17 against the New England Patriots. It was prior to that game, he alleged, some players would not take the field for the singing of the national anthem.
When the players did come out, Mr. Dragna said, they passed directly in front of him and “many of the fans in that area” booed, and spilled beer on players. Those actions created a “borderline dangerous” environment created by the Saints for condoning the protests, he said in court papers.
“Apparently these players were following the lead of (former San Francisco 49ers quarterback) Colin Kaepernick by disrespecting the flag, the anthem, the USA and those who have served and are serving the USA in our military,” he said of the Saints players.
The rowdy, angry mob of fans have made his season tickets unusable by him and his family and business clients won’t even take the tickets.
