The way the Indianapolis Colts have handled the Andrew Luck injury has been a giant disaster.
And it’s only getting worse.
According to Pro Football Talk, the Colts could be faced with a lawsuit form season-ticket holders, on the basis that they bought their tickets with the understanding that Andrew Luck would be playing.
Before the season, Colts owner Jim Irsay stated that Luck would be ready to play by the start of the regular season, which prompted many of the fanbase to buy tickets to see the star quarterback play:
“And so the question becomes whether Irsay was accidentally or deliberately inaccurate in January, when he made a promise that Luck “will be ready for season!” before fans had to decide whether to buy an expensive package of two preseason and eight regular-season game tickets that would allow them to enjoy the exploits of Andrew Luck.
Even without the Colts saying anything more, the circumstances reveal sufficient evidence to launch a class action on behalf of all season-ticket holders, on the basis that they were falsely induced to buy the tickets under the premise that Luck will play. Other things said by the Colts only strengthen that potential claim.”
The Colts are currently 3-6 and in dead last in the AFC South.
