Two New York Jets season ticket-holders have filed a "class-action" suit in U.S. District Court in Newark against Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. The suit charges that the fans were "defrauded" by the Pats over the VideoGate flap because "New York Jets ticket-holders...fully anticipated and contracted for a ticket to observe an honest match played in compliance with all laws and regulations." Uh-huh. Oh, and they're looking for $184 million. That sounds reasonable, don't you think?
You know, I have to admit, we don't have quite enough of a litigious society--we need more frivolous actions like this. Not. Could this whole joke be any more typically New York, or what?
