Saints Season Ticket Holder Suing Team Over Protests During National Anthem

Jacksonville Jaguars v New Orleans Saints

A Saints fan named Lee Dragna, who appears to be a real dumbass, has filed a lawsuit against the team seeking a refund for his season tickets.

Dragna said he hasn't attended a game since the first home game of the 2017 season against the New England Patriots, on September 17, when he said some of the players did not come out for the singing of the national anthem.

According to the suit, when players did come onto the field before the game with the Patriots, "they passed directly in front of where the petitioner and his guests were seated".

The stupidest thing about this lawsuit, aside from the fact that it exists, is that Saints players never even protested during the anthem at a home game.

The lawsuit cites other games during which Saints players kneeled during the anthem, saying they were "following the lead of Colin Kaepernick by disrespecting the flag, the Anthem; the US and those who have served and are serving the U.S. in our military" and that "these actions taken by the Saints football players were in protest of racial inequality and police brutality".

The numbers: The producer price index in November surged 0.4% for the third straight month, matching the MarketWatch forecast. Producer price inflation has continued to strengthen since hitting a recent low of a 1.9% year-over-year increase in June.

Saints running back Mark Ingram disputed Dragna's account on Tuesday, saying New Orleans players only kneeled for the anthem once this season: a Week 3 game on the road in the immediate aftermath of Donald Trump's bellicose remarks calling on National Football League owners to fire players who did not stand for the anthem.

Dragna told The Advocate that he paid around $8,000 for his tickets and when he asked the Saints for a refund, they denied it. Kaepernick and other players who have consistently protested over the past year-plus have made it abundantly clear that there is no disrespect meant to military members; many of them have family or friends who have served.

"The Saints created that behavior by condoning it", he told The Advocate. "If you sell tickets to a gaming event for entertainment, you should not be allowed to turn it political". Dozens of players across the NFL have previously sat and knelt during the national anthem to continue the movement now that Kaepernick has yet to be signed by an NFL team.

Dragna is serious about getting his money back as he threatened, "One way or another they'll pay".

Ingram was one of a group of Saints players who sat on a bench prior to a game against the Carolina Panthers during the anthem.
