Judge tosses Saints fan's suit over bounty probe

Published: January 30, 2013 Updated 21 hours ago

By MICHAEL KUNZELMAN Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS -- A federal judge on Wednesday dismissed a class-action lawsuit that a Saints season-ticket holder filed against NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell over the bounty investigation.
The suit claimed the NFL's sanctions against the team over its alleged system of offering cash bonuses to Saints players for big hits punished season ticket holders more than anyone else and sought more than $5 million in damages.

....... blah blah .......

"First, as this court has previously stated, even if the process surrounding 'Bountygate' was initially procedurally flawed, it resulted in a revised discipline accepted by those involved based on the finding that 'conduct detrimental' to the game of football had occurred," she wrote. "In addition, the only distinction between a ticket holder who is a fan and a ticketless fan is the ticket holder's right to entry and seating at the game granted by the license."

here was the error in the law suit besides the idot looking for money for ticket holders.

as the judge points out "In addition, the only distinction between a ticket holder who is a fan and a ticketless fan is the ticket holder's right to entry and seating at the game granted by the license."

this should have been about protecting the tax payers investment in the saints and demanding the courts to over rule the draft penlites by the nfl due to being excessive and since the coaches sat out already and the season was a waste, that is enough.

i still want the proof

i need a lawyer
