NFL Fan Sues Player & Team Over Fan Appreciation Day Injury

It’s nice to have football back. Fans didn’t miss out on any meaningful games, owners and the union hammered out a new bargaining agreement, and players got back to work while skipping extended training camps. Most players probably welcomed the respite from two-a-days in sweltering temperatures, but one player was probably happier than most for the shortened camp schedule, considering that a previous camp landed him in court.

The player is punter Sav Rocca, who is currently with the Washington Redskins, but was punting for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009. During training camp that year, the Eagles opened up one of their practices for a fan appreciation event, where players sign autographs, pose for pictures, and connect with fans.

As part of the fan interaction, Rocca booted a ball up into the stands, and told the fan who caught it to throw it back. The fan’s toss went way off-line and hit the wrist of another spectator, who is now suing Rocca, the Eagles, and – hey, why not? – the Eagles Charitable Foundation over her injuries. The thrower is not named in the suit.

This may be Australian-born Rocca’s first experience with the U.S. legal system, but the legal situation Down Under is also far from ideal. The Australian legal system has become more and more lawsuit friendly. While the American legal system remains in serious need of reform, it is not the only one that can be improved.
