Dallas Cowboys Fan Sues NFL Over Reversed Dez Bryant Catch, Wait, What?!?
Dallas Cowboys fans, including myself, were understandably upset when the refs reversed Dez Bryant’s catch in the playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers. But, one fan is so upset, he decided to sue the NFL for $88 billion dollars. Yes, seriously.
According to KHOU in Houston, Texas, Terry Hendrix, an inmate at a Colorado prison, is suing the NFL for $88,987,654,321.88 over the controversial replay reversal in the Cowboys’ NFC divisional round loss to the Green Bay Packers.
If you’re not familiar with the call, the Dallas Cowboys were driving for a touchdown in the fourth quarter of the divisional round against the Green Bay Packers. Dez Bryant appeared to have made a spectacular catch that would have set the Cowboys up around the 1 yard line, and a chance to take the lead in the game. But, after the play was challenged, the call was reversed and the Packers ended up winning the game, causing Dallas Cowboys fans to understandably lose their minds.
In a handwritten lawsuit, he specifically names NFL Vice President of Officiating Dean Blandino, referee Gene Steratore and Commissioner Roger Goodell saying the reversal was a “fraud” and caused “true injury” to the Dallas Cowboys. He goes on to say that the play would have put the Cowboys in position to win the game.
“Dean Blandino, Gene Steratore, and Roger Goodell are wrong and have stolen a victory from the plaintiffs,” Hendrix wrote in the lawsuit. “The Cowboys’ offensive line would have perfectly created an ‘Autobahn’ for DeMarco Murray to drive into the endzone for the score and victory.” (via KHOU)
Hendrix says he appears as counsel for Dez Bryant, all Dallas Cowboys fans and all people in or from the sovereign republic of Texas.
This reminds me of that time some lady sued the Dallas Cowboys a few years ago because she burned her buns on a bench. It’s just ludicrous. Look, I was just as mad as a lot of Cowboys fans out there, but I don’t think I’d sue someone over it. That’s going a wee bit overboard in my opinion.
So, what do you think? Will this dude win the case? If he does, I’m suing all bandwagon Cowboys fans because it makes me sad.
