Tim Fletcher: Tony Romo Moves To Sue The NFL
Tony Romo and his "Fantasy Fan Expo" organization filed a lawsuit against the NFL for more than $1,000,000 after the league canceled the National Fantasy Football Convention in Las Vegas just five weeks before the event was scheduled to begin. Attorney Julie Pettit confirmed to the Dallas Morning News that Romo is part owner of the "Fan Expo".
The NFL, according to the lawsuit, blames the location of the convention in Sin City for the plug-pulling. Romo isn't buying what the league is selling. "It's like when you're in high school and you don't get invited to the party, it makes you feel bad." Romo also said the league could have been a part of the Expo. Since the NFL wasn't getting a cut of the action, the lawsuit says, they called a halt to the festivities by threatening players scheduled to appear with fines and suspensions if they followed through with plans to appear at the convention.
