Apparently, the suit’s goal is to get the league to restore the first round pick stripped from the team because of the scandal. It argues that the penalty was based on “false premises and biased ‘investigations’ and untrue ‘facts’,” and accuses the league of racketeering, fraud, and violations of state consumer protection laws. Good luck with that.
But wait, there’s more! The group cites the “emotional distress” they’ve suffered because of the lost draft pick. One fans is ticked about the cash he dropped on his Sunday Ticket only to see his team “mistreated.” Another fan says the day the league took away the Pats’ draft pick was the day “my world would change forever.”
