If you're a paid-up NFL season-ticket holder, you've just sued pro football for your money back, plus interest. You and 1.2 million others, who would benefit from the class action brought by a Philadelphia Eagles fan in a suburban Philadelphia court, naming all 28 NFL teams as defendants.
Demanding refunds "plus money market interest on the money (fans) paid last April," plaintiff's attorney says the suit results from refusal of ticket managers of various teams to accede to refund requests. "I don't know how many fans have asked for refunds," he adds, "but I've heard on the radio that one man calls twice a week . . . and has been refused. People are wondering what has happened to the money they've paid" . . .
And a Grand Rapids, Mich., chain retailer bows to pressure from women's groups and removes from store shelves T-shirts emblazoned with "I survived the football strike" and a cartoon of a rough-looking male fan punching an apron-clad woman in the face.
Many female customers got a kick out of the novelty, a dealer said, but National Organization for Women's Jackson, Mich., chapter, protested, "The shirts are degrading and offensive to women . . . promote domestic violence as being amusing while . . . women have been maimed and beaten."
