Browns Fan Sues NFL Over Lockout

Remember that guy who sued the Patriots over SpyGate? It looks like we now have a second face on ridiculous NFL fan lawsuit Mount Rushmore.

Ken Lanci, a self-made millionaire who ran unsuccessfully last year for the top county government job in Cleveland, filed the lawsuit Thursday in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court.

"It's a fight between billionaires and millionaires," Lanci said Friday in a phone interview. "There isn't any sympathy for multimillionaires. It's just not going to happen. And somebody has to stand up and say, 'Enough's enough.' "

The lawsuit asked for damages of more than $25,000 from the Browns on both breach of contract and bad faith counts and more than $25,000 from the league and its teams for alleged contract interference.

I suppose it will be up to the court to decide whether Mr. Lanci has lost $25,000 over the lack of player movement news and reports from OTA's.

Seriously, folks, I am not happy about things either, but we have not lost anything valuable yet.
