It’s no surprise that there are people out there who don’t care or even like the NFL protest. Many have shown their disdain for the protest through social media, booing at games but never by a lawsuit.
Yahoo News reports, New Orléans Saints fan Lee Dragna of Morgan City, La., wants reimbursement of his ticket for $8,000.
On Monday, December 11, 2017, Dragna filed a lawsuit in Louisiana’s 24th Judicial District Court asking for a full refund of his tickets as well as legal fees. He says the players’ protest has made it hard for his family to enjoy the games.
At the beginning of the year, Dragna and his family attended a home opener against the New England Patriots’ and noticed that not all players were on the field. Since then, he hasn’t attended a game.
The lawsuit states that as players entered the field after the National Anthem, “they passed directly in front of where the petitioner and his guest were seated. Many of the fans in that area booed and cursed at the Saints players.”
As we know, this protest started with former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a knee at games to protest police brutality.
Dragna believes the booing and disrespect shown by fans in response to the protest is the Saints owner, Tom Benson’s fault.
“The Saints created that behavior by condoning it. It’s my thought pattern that they should not be allowed to protest,” explained Dragna. “If you sell tickets to a gaming event for entertainment, you should not be allowed to turn it political.”
This lawsuit is serious for Dragna who strongly opposes the protest. “One way or another, they’ll pay.”
