    I'd be willing to bet a lot of people would be surprised at what it actually says on the back of a lot of tickets to sporting events.


    Of course, people would also be surprised if lawyers actually applied common sense.

    Shakespeare was right.

    so he's saying the Pats commited fruad since they didn't follow league rules. If this goes in his favor that opens the door for a Pats fan to sue the jets for violating league rules when they were called for holding in game at the razor. Both were listed under minor infractions according to the league rule book, but what do I know I'm not an attorney

    It already happened. The Jets were caught taping in an area they asked permission to tape but was denied. The camera man was asked to leave nicely and that was the end of that, well until Manrat decided to take that one step further when the Pats tried the same thing

    Simply put if they are successful I'm going to file a Law suit against the New York Jets and the NFL for perpetrating a fraud against the NFL fandom for their even suggesting that the franchise known as the New York Jets ever produced a viable NFL product for 41 years! I think all I have to do is produce their continual losing records as evidence.Only a Philadelphia Court would even allow such a ridiculous suit to be heard.

    In Response to Court to hear fan lawsuit over Patriots’ ‘Spygate’:
    N EWARK, N.J. — The NFL’s ’Spygate’ is headed back to court. The U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia is scheduled to hear oral arguments Wednesday in a lawsuit arising from the New England Patriots [ team stats ] ’ secret videotaping of New York Jets [ team stats ] coaches in a game at Giants Stadium in 2007. The suit was filed by a Jets season ticket holder who also is an attorney in New Jersey, and it claims the Patriots’ actions "violated the contractual expectations and rights of New York Jets ticket-holders" who paid to watch a game played in compliance with the league’s rules. The Patriots were caught taping signals by Jets coaches, a violation of league rules, during the opening game of the 2007 season. New England won 38-14 at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell fined Patriots head coach Bill Belichick $500,000 and the team $250,000 for that incident, and stripped New England of a first-round draft choice. Carl Mayer’s lawsuit asserts that because other teams also found illicit videotaping by the defendants, Jets ticketholders should be compensated for all games played in Giants Stadium between the Jets and Patriots since Belichick became head coach in 2000. "What we’re arguing is that professional sports is a business that has to respect the law just like any other business, and that teams that participate can’t commit fraud on ticketholders," Mayer said Tuesday. "The Patriots had altered the rules of the game and were playing with advance knowledge of opponents’ plays." Mayer and co-counsel Bruce Afran also will argue that the Patriots violated federal racketeering laws as well as New Jersey’s consumer protection laws by concealing material facts — the existence of the videotaping — from paying customers. The suit calculated that because customers paid $61.6 million to watch eight "fraudulent" games, they’re entitled to triple that amount — or $184.8 million — in compensation under racketeering and consumer fraud laws. Mayer and Afran are appealing the dismissal of the case in March 2009 by U.S. District Judge Garrett Brown Jr. in Trenton. Shep Goldfein, an attorney representing the NFL in the matter, referred to Brown’s ruling in which the judge wrote that a ticket seller only contracts to provide entry to a ticketholder "to view whatever event transpires." An attorney representing the Patriots did not return a telephone message Tuesday. "People pay hundreds of dollars for tickets and expect a fair game," Afran said. "It’s not professional wrestling, where you know it’s rigged."

    Unfortunately for the two moronic attornies they are going to have to substaniate their arguments with facts,inuendo won't cut it! Frivelous law suits are generally dismissed summarilly as will be the case with this law suit. Next case!

    What video tapes? I dont remember no video tapes, and since when do Jets fans pay full price for tickets? Half those tickets were given away because they are and were a losing team. Bret Farve had to leave because of the smell!
