NFL & The Seattle Seahawks Being Sued By A Fan For How Many MILLIONS?? All Because They Wouldn’t Allow Him To Buy Playoff Tickets?!

The Seattle Seahawks boast one of the best fan bases in the entire NFL, whom they affectionately nicknamed “The 12th Man.”

12 flags are flown all around the city on game day, players take the field waving their own 12 flag, and the stadium sells out with those who take pride in being ‘Hawks fans!

But is Seattle only allowing people from certain states to buy seats to their games??

John E. Williams III lives in Nevada and wanted to get tickets to last season’s NFC Championship game between the Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers. But based on where he’s from, the team didn't allow him to make his purchase!

According to Seatle’s own website, only fans from Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Alaska, Hawaii and a few Canadian provinces were eligible to buy tickets to that game!

Williams believes it’s because they wanted to keep 49ers fans (from California or say, NEVADA) from being at that game!

John is now SUING the NFL and the Seahawks for discriminating against him based on geographical location! He’s asking for $40 MILLION!

Woah…

The National Football League has deep pockets but that seems like a bit much, no?

The lawsuit never states whether Williams is a Niners or a ‘Hawks fan but, if he was a true member of the 12th Man, would he really be taking his favorite team to court?

Whattaya think, Fit Readers? Does this guy have a case??

    Did he try buying from stubhub? Otherwise I do not think he has much of a chance.

    What is this? Russia! If the man has the money he should be able to buy a ticket.

    After offering the seats to seasons ticket holders and those on the waiting list, there were approximately 3,000 seats available to the public in total.

    Seattle fans living in Seattle had to go to the secondary market to get tickets. The chances of this guy getting tickets at face price without the restrictions were almost zero.

    Re: Hog man

    Of course he could buy tickets - "if he has the money" he could buy them on Stubhub in the secondary market.

    Another whiner with his head up his @$$…
    I couldn't buy tickets even through another market. I'm certain John watched the game on TV like "ALL" the Seahawks fans devoted to the team. Sueing the NFL & the Seahawks?
    How ridiculous is this idea.
