Browns PSL holder sues team over lockout

Though he almost surely won't be the last, Ken Lanci appears to be the first PSL holder to sue the NFL and his favorite team over the current lockout.

Lanci, a Cleveland-area businessman, filed a suit against the Browns and the NFL and the other 31 teams in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court, asking the court to prohibit the lockout, according to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.

"What tipped the scale for me is the labor issue between millionaires and billionaires and the fact they can't settle it when the country is in a recession," Lanci said. "Worse yet, they have to rub this in our faces."

And now you why both the NFL and the NFLPA are constantly waging a PR war: fans are going to get sick of the bickering over $9 billion sooner rather than later.

And when they do, one side would prefer to have the leverage. What's interesting here, though, is that Lanci, as a PSL holder, can't really do much damage to the NFLPA. And by himself, there's not a whole lot he can do to the NFL, or the Browns for that matter.

But if word starts getting out to other fans, and they all start banding together and filing class-action lawsuits against the various NFL teams, well, things could escalate pretty quickly.

Because that's a battle that even the best PR team on the planet couldn't win.

That's brilliant guys, blame the owners because the players got too greedy.
It's no wonder the Browns left the first time.
Hopefully you do join a lawsuit, and the owners take their teams to a fanbase that appreciates them.

Ken Lanci a Cleveland-area businessman, failed politician, general dirtbag seeking attention you meant to say, right Will?
Oh wait, I forgot, you just repost wire reports, and don't actually research anything, fitting as these "articles" don't seem to be edited either.
