Pennsylvania Inmate Files Injunction Against The NFL Because The Chargers Made The Playoffs And The Steelers Didn’t

It’s been a week and a half since the end of the regular season, but it seems Steelers fans still can’t get over the fact that they feel their team wrongly missed the playoffs because Ryan Succop didn’t get a second chance to kick a game-winning field goal against the Chargers in Week 17. Especially the Steelers fans who have extra time to stew on the matter because they’re presently incarcerated.

Daniel L. Spuck of Mercer, Pa., has filed a motion against the NFL to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania for “a temporary emergency injunction” on the basis that the Chargers should not have been in the postseason because of a missed call in the Week 17 game between San Diego and Kansas City.

Online court records, which show that the suit was filed via inmate mail from the Pennsylvania corrections department, say the plaintiff has not submitted a filing fee or requested a waiver.

You can view the complete court document here. I’m no law-talking guy, but, in addition to the lack of filing fee, I feel like misspelling Andy Reid and writing in the margins makes his case double convincing. You’re in big trouble now, NFL. Better call off the postseason while you still can.
