As reported Friday by LeeRoy, the Mike Brown ticket scam lawsuit came to a close with a settlement. The Bengals are paying out, in my estimation, a very paltry $225,000 to the 129 fans that had the cojones to challenge Mike Brown in the only arena (Court) that he actually is willing to pay for top notch personnel. What I found fascinating is Brown and the Bengals somehow don't ever break laws when they're swindling people out of their money. From the Enquirer article,
Fans noted the literature accompanying the original ticket application didn’t note they were obligated to pay for those tickets through 2009, a clause they said was added in later literature from the team.
How do you get away with this unless you are a totalitarian government in a troubled part of the world? Seriously, how is that not fraud or some other felony. I'm pretty sure that there are laws against that in America, unless of course you're from South Africa and have diplomatic immunity. Is there a clause in his stadium lease that prohibits him from being charged with crimes in Hamilton County? If so, maybe he could be extradited to Clermont and tried with a whole jury full of angry Milfordians casting judgement upon him.
The more I think about it, the more Mikey Boy kind of reminds me of King George talking down to his scrappy little american colony. And as we all should remember, Americans will only be fed so much crap before they take to the streets.
