Yet another outrage

This one belongs to the "I'll slap you and you'll like it" category. Jeffrey Loria and the Miami Marlins are the perps; two long-suffering Marlins' fans are the victims. The dispute: The Marlins have refused to honor their contract with the victims.

Since they pay $25,000 for the seats that became obscured, the Leons say they asked the team to change their seat location or they would not renew their tickets for the 2013 season. The team allegedly responded by threatening a lawsuit for nonpayment, according to Elfrink. It's unclear if the club made other attempts to resolve the issue before threatening the lawsuit.

The report goes on to say that the Leons signed a multiyear seat agreement with the Marlins in September 2010 that required them to pay $25,292 in September for the upcoming 2013 season. They say they haven't paid because the team refused to move their seats, so their bill is technically five months late and that's why the Marlins have threatened legal action.

"They've pooped on fans' feelings for years," Jan Leon told the Miami New Times. "These seats are not what we paid for. ... They wouldn't (move us). We're just tired of fighting constantly over our view being blocked and our safety endangered. ... I have no intention of renewing. They're a Double-A team now. It went down the toilet when they sold off all the players."

So, the Leons made a six-figure commitment to a team that traded away most of its best players and which then altered the services they promised to the couple. And the victims only want different seats!
