In the “let’s see how we can get our 15 minutes of fame” story of the week, an upset Jets season ticket holder has filed a class-action law suit against the Patriots over “Spygate,” which took place opening day at the Meadowlands during the Pats-Jets game. Princeton lawyer Carl Mayer filed the site in Newark Federal Court against Patriots, seeking damages for “deceiving customers.”
Mayer is seeking more than $184 million in damage for Jets ticket holders. The New York Daily News states the money may be for refunds to the fans who sat through the seven Jets-Pats battles at Giants Stadium since 2000, the year the Bill Belichick took over as the coach for New England. Belichick was named in the lawsuit. “They violated the integrity of the game,” Mayer’s attorney, Bruce Afran, told The Associated Press. “This is a way of punishing Belichick and the Patriots.”
“How many times have the Patriots done this? We find it hard to believe they did it just once,” Mayer said. “We just want to get to the truth of the matter of what the Patriots did to the Jets. I think the ticket holders are genuinely concerned about it. This is a type of misrepresentation.” Bottom line – this is a joke and this guy should give up and move on. The NFL has punished the Pats and Belichick, and nothing more is going to be done. Get a life.
