Post Pierre Garcon files class action against FanDuel
Washington receiver Pierre Garςon has filed a class-action lawsuit in Maryland against FanDuel. The complaint alleges that player “names and likenesses have been misappropriated” and that FanDuel “knowingly and improperly exploits the popularity” of players at “offensive skilled position” absent their permission.

The press release announcing the lawsuit, posted by Mike Garafolo of, contends that FanDuel “routinely uses the names and likenesses of some of these NFL players without authorization to promote FanDuel’s commercial enterprise, collecting huge revenues from entry fees.”

The press release states that FanDuel “continues to promote and to operate its daily fantasy football gaming product on the backs of NFL players like Mr. Garςon, whose popularity and performance make FanDuel’s entire business model possible.” ... t-fanduel/

Interesting. Did they do some type of advertisements with him specifically? Does anyone know if Yahoo has a deal with the NFLPA?

Gracon based on some things I heard, runs his mouth, far too much. This years HBO hard knocks
several of the Texans players said he is like that in practice and games. I am not too surprised
he was one of the first players to file a suit, of this kind.

no one expects the Spanish Inquisition!
