Today in wild, wacky and frivolous lawsuits comes word of a Saints fan suing Roger Goodell and the NFL for emotional hardship. If you did’t think this bounty scandal was stupid before, well, TA-DA. David Macina, a Saints season ticket holder filed the class action suit in U.S. District Court yesterday. He’s seeking $5 million in damages.
The lawsuit contends that Mancina and other season ticket holders “purchased their tickets with the representation, and expectation, from the Commissioner and the League that the Saints would be capable of competitively fielding a contending team comprised of the finest athletes, and the best coaches, under contract with the New Orleans Saints, or available to them through normal trades and draft choices, without dictatorial, unreasonable, vindictive, and unfounded, interference from the Commissioner and the League, devoid of due process.”
Needless to say, fans are beginning to see how crappy this season looks at 1-4 and are taking steps to deflect blame towards the NFL. Never mind that whole “we conspired to injure” thing.
