    Class Action Time Guys, Time to Sue the NFL

    Well if there is a attorney on this site, he or she needs to put together a class action law suit against the NFL so we are not taken advantage of again as paying customers of Direct Tv. We are being ripped off, it is time to make new case law guys, I am sure you will get everybody on this site to join in and then from there it will roll, you will make alot of money and become a hero to us small guys

    Request for Lawyer and Judge Help for Action and Possible Class Action Suit

    If there is a lawyer of judge who visits this site I have a request for help.

    As of now DiectTV is planning to delay the telecast of Saturday's game for 24 hours. I feel this is a flat out violation of the subscriber deal for NFL Sunday Ticket, and constitutes fraud by DiectTV and possibly the NFL also.

    I request that a lawyer would file for restraining order to force DirectTV to show the game live to it's paying subscribers. I also request for a judge to approve it. I also request that a lawyer would initiate a class-action lawsuit to force the terms of the agreement for the subscribers. Also to include the NFL in the suit if they are a roadblock to proper redress of the situation.

    I would glady be a willing plaintiff in this action.

    I also will help out with this...but I am not a lawyer...just a nuclear physicist, so my skills aren't very useful in these early stages ;)

    The minimal thing that they could do for us DTV/NFL Sunday Ticket people is return 1/12 our our money. Psychological damage is much higher. I haven't missed a Fin game since 1992.

    Isn't Directv Sunday Ticket advertised as every NFL game? There has to be some legal ground that they have to show the game live. They will be getting many nasty emails and phone calls if this game isn't on live. Just put the damn game on, just like if it were sunday.

    It's the NFL's call. They tell DTV what they can show and when they can show it. The NFL is responsible here.

    According to the dolphins@miamidolphins.com they told me via email that:

    Federal legislation prohibits NFL games from being televised on Saturdays prior
    to Thanksgiving to protect the rights of college football.

    On the DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket Questions page, they say:

    NFL SUNDAY TICKET consists of regular season Sunday games broadcast at 1 pm and 4 pm EST.

    Suing them would be difficult, but I would love to throw in a few bucks to try. It still won't get the game on this Saturday. I'm pissed.

    Direct TV IS showing the game on Sunday. There is no case for a law suit, as they are living up to the agreement they have set.

    It would be nice if they would just show the game live on the NFL channel like they have been doing with some of the preseason games.

    My gosh, this too funny. Suing solves everything right? How about starting a thread to donate for people that will be affected by the hurricanes? Now I'm not on a high horse, I'm not better than anyone at all, but c'mon people, get over yourselves. Hate on me all you like because I can be a a-hole quite often but there will be people out there that are going to have higher needs than if they'll be able to see a football game or not. Use this energy for something positive. I think I need to get some McDonalds, I hope it doesn't make me fat.

    And besides, in a class action lawsuit like this, none of the actual plaintiffs ever get anything. It's the scumbag trial lawyer who gets all the money. Count me out.
