Heat fan sues Spurs for game in which they sent Starters home

heh...Does he have a case? Discuss....


Would you be upset if the Broncos came to town and sat a healthy Manning, Decker and Knowmo ?

A former Miami Heat season-ticket holder has sued the Spurs for sending four players home, including Tim Duncan, before their Nov. 29 game at Miami.

Miami-based attorney Larry McGuinness filed a class-action suit in Miami-Dade County on Monday, accusing Spurs coach Gregg Popovich of inflicting “economic damages” on fans who paid premium prices for the game.

McGuinness said he did not know the Spurs had flown Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Danny Green back to San Antonio until he was on his way to AmericanAirlines Arena.

He said he would have stayed home and watched the game on television had the Spurs provided notice.

“It was like going to a restaurant and ordering the most expensive item on the menu — lobster — and you get a horrible chicken fried steak,” said McGuinness, who has seats in the lower bowl. “No offense to chicken fried steak.”

NBA teams sell tickets under variable pricing, with higher-profile opponents costing more. The suit is asking for the differential between premium and lower-tier tickets. Should it succeed, McGuinness said he will donate his portion to Superstorm Sandy relief.

The Spurs had previously drawn the wrath of NBA commissioner David Stern for their decision to send four of their main rotation players home early.

Stern fired off a tersely-worded statement before tip-off promising “substantial sanctions.” That turned out to be a $250,000 fine, one of the largest in league history. He accused the Spurs in an additional statement of doing “a disservice to the league and our fans.”

The Spurs pushed the defending champion Heat to the final minute before losing 105-100. McGuinness attributed the game’s competitiveness to the Heat underestimating their weakened opponent.

“I thought somebody would have done something already,” he said. “But when nobody did, while I thought Commissioner Stern’s fine was appropriate, and was a good shot across the bow, I wanted to make sure the Spurs and any other team who does this knows that fans can get ticked off too.”

Stern was traveling Tuesday and unavailable for comment. Spurs spokesman Tom James declined to comment

Hopefully this frivolous excuse for a lawsuit will get laughed out of court. Newsflash: the ticket you paid for said "Heat vs. Spurs," not "LeBron/Wade/Bosh vs. Duncan/Parker/Ginobili."

Popovich fielded a team that night, so he fulfilled his obligation. This lawsuit is just as pointless and childish as Stern's tantrum. If Stern wants to avoid situations like this in the future, he should change the way schedules are put together.... of course, this would prevent him from giving the cushiest, easiest schedules to the Lakers and OKC every year.

He should probably only get half of his money back. If he's like the rest of heat fans, he showed up in the 2nd quarter and left with 5 minutes left in the game.

Typical south Florida douchebag. I'm surprised the dude could even file the lawsuit in English.

I am not going to say he was right in filing this lawsuit, and I think it is a stupid lawsuit. That being said, the commissioner paved the way for this lawsuit by fining the team. The team has to pay the league for doing this, but the fans get no compensation. If every ticket was the same price I don't think it would be a big deal, but with different prices for different opponents, basically the 250,000 fine should go to the ticket holders for that game.

We need more of these types of lawsuits. And more Attorneys.
