The fan has a point. The PSL (and these things are worse than a Bernie Madoff scheme to begin with) has an intrinsic value that is damaged if there’s no professional football. Therefore, it isn’t just for emotional distress, etc. The NFL is intentionally killing the value of the man’s PSL by denying him the value to sell it to other pro football fans.

Instead of arguing, as most fan lawsuits do, that the fan is harmed by some vague value, the PSL has a set monetary value and thus loses value when there is no games to sell.

Motion sustained. Continue.

Excellent points, but keep in mind that if the PSL is the only basis of the lawsuit then the maximum damages that a fan could seek would be the value of the PSL -- probably $5,000 to $15,000 for most fans. That's hardly worth the time, effort and expense of a lawsuit.

To be really effective, this kind of legal action needs to be elevated to a class action suit in which the team(s) and/or the NFL are exposed to $5,000-$15,000 in damages per litigant.
