It was bound to happen. One sick and tired NFL fan has officially sued the New Orleans Saints for the scandalous behavior of the kneeling players.
It is about time.
According to ESPN, the fan is Lee Dragna. He claims in his lawsuit that he bought his season ticket package for the “entertainment and intellectual enjoyment” of himself and his family.
He goes on to say he would never have made the purchase if he knew the players would “use Saints football games as a platform for protests.”
Can’t argue with that. Dragna has not attended a game since the second week of the season and simply wants his money back.
This should be easy for the NFL and for the New Orleans Saints but with insanity taking over that sport expect them to blow it in spectacular fashion.
The fact that he had to sue to get his money back tells you this is going to be a PR nightmare for the NFL, if not a financial one.
The suit alleges players were “apparently … following the lead of Colin Kaepernick by disrespecting the flag, the Anthem, the USA and those who have served and are serving the USA in our military.”
It is clear there was a coordinated movement to do as much. The Saints have no official comment but one player tweeted what seems to be an admission of guilt in a statement that must have horrified the lawyers.
Do you think he should get his money back? Let us know in comments below.
