What’s more American than football? Apple pie, maybe. The Second Amendment. Lawsuits. Throughout the history of the NFL, there have been myriad reasons for fans, owners, and players to lawyer up and file suit. Many of them, like the Player’s Union’s attempt to get the NFL to pay attention to head injuries, are legitimate. That’s not what we’re focused on here — today we’ll be looking at the head scratchers, the “no way that’s real” stories, and the pure, unadulterated dumb that fuels them.

No, the Buffalo Jills — the cheerleaders for the Buffalo Bills –recent suit against the team doesn’t qualify. That’s one of the serious ones. Any time an employee for a billion dollar industry is taking home a reported “$105 to $1,800 for an entire season on the job,” the silliness stops. So don’t look for that one in the list below.

But, rest assured, there’s much more frivolity when it comes to legal action and the National Football League. From text messages to halftime shows, there’s apparently no perceived infraction too slight when it comes to the NFL and their product. Get prepared and read on to see the seven most absurd lawsuits in NFL history.
