Saints fans sues over protests

A Saints fan is suing the team for the cost of his season tickets, because he said he was upset by player protests during the national anthem.

But those protests may not have actually started at the time which he became so offended he decided to stop going to games.

According to Chad Calder of the New Orleans Advocate, Lee Dragna of Morgan City, La. is suing the Saints for a refund of his season tickets, claiming the protests prevented him and his family from enjoying a game.

One potential problem: The Saints may not have made any political statements at the game he attended, the home opener on Sept. 17 against the Patriots.

Re: Saints fans sues over protests

the nfl is responsible for the action of visiting teams in the super dome. the saints are a franchise of the NFL thus can not avoid the responsibility.

Nice try Mark but it does not hold water

I know it sucks to be out some money, but tearing up the tickets and walking away would seem a lot less painful.

I would agree with this guy. He purchased the tickets to have his family entertained my given someone else's political views. There is a time and place for everything.

They should give him his money back and tell him and his family that he is banned from all future Saints game.

Re: Saints fans sues over protests

I agree, they should give his money back and give the tickets to the next in line. The cost of those tickets to the organization is nothing. Personally, all these people who burned their tickets must live in another tax bracket than me. I don't agree with the protests, but I don't agree with burning several thousand dollars in my own protest either.

Nope, that's not how the NFL or the Saints do business; they've already moved far beyond ever caring about their customer. They've already said a few things that indicate they are going to dig in their heels and make an example of this puny little season ticket holder.

This dude isn't going to get anywhere with his suit; he should've just sold his tickets on craigslist and got what he could and walked away.

Re: Saints fans sues over protests

I had a friend of mine tell me he got invited to a game with someone in a suite. He said the suite owner asked them if they would join them if they walked out if the players protested. According to my friend all the box owners threatened to walk out if they did protest. Not sure how true that is, but I found it interesting. That would certainly catch someoneís attention
