*A New Orleans Saints season-ticket holder is suing the team, requesting a refund of his ticket costs and attorneys’ fees because of players who took a knee during the national anthem at home games, and who sat during the anthem in a Week 3 road game.

Lee Dragna claims in his lawsuit that he purchased the tickets for the “entertainment and intellectual enjoyment” of himself and his family and that he never would have bought them if he had known that players would “use Saints football games as a platform for protests.” The suit claims Dragna has not attended a Saints home game since Week 2.

The Saints declined to comment, saying they had turned the matter over to their legal department. However, a source said the organization is “taking this very seriously, and this fan best have his facts in order,” reports ESPN.

“The Saints will come back at this fan who has brought forth incorrect information in his statement with everything to defend the team, organization and players,” the source said.

Saints running back Mark Ingram, one of 10 Saints players who sat on the bench during the anthem at Carolina in Week 3 after Donald Trump made derogatory statements toward players around the league, took to Twitter to respond to the fan’s lawsuit.
