Man suing Eagles
I am not sure if this hit the national scene but some guy is suing the Birds...
He was one of the people that helped shovel the snow from the stadium before the NFC championship game..
He claims "They gave me a shovel but no gloves" now he is suing because he has had 8 fingers removed from his hands due to frostbite.
Also claims the Eagles have not paid me for the work yet...

I laughed when I heard about the lawsuit but a guy on my local sports talk show says the guy actually has a good case because of PA Labor Laws. Sucks to have to lose 8 fingers, i can't imagine the last 2 are gonna be good for anything.

What is this guy...a child? Can he not take care of himself. Hmmm, it's snowing and it's really cold outside...nah I don't need gloves. Almost as bad as someone sueing McDumpsters because they're fat.

Ahhh boy. See this is why the govt bans things. Most people can't be trusted to look out for themselves. It's sad that this dumb bastard doesn't know to wear gloves when it's cold. Man o Man.

There goes his snow shoveling career. He could have simply walked away if they didn't give him gloves, but maybe he's banking on Jefferey Lurie to settle out of court or something
BTW, I've never had to endure weather worse than 30 degrees, but I find it damm hard to believe you would lose 8 fingers from frostbite ?

Oh it could happen. I think your fingers going numb would be your first clue to either take a break or get some damn gloves!Originally Posted by Iron Warrior

Supposedly, he was outside for 14 hours without any gloves or a heavy coat. The funny part was that he knew he was going to the stadium to clean up snow out of the stands and didn't bother to wear a coat, hat or gloves. What a moron!!!!!

He does have a case He was employed by the temp agency who was acting as an agent for the Eagles.
And was not provided with hazardous weather gear as is required..
Also there was no direct supervision which also must be provided under these conditions. And was not trained to deal with these conditions
by the temp agency which cannot assume that day employees will know that exposure to such conditions would cause frostbite..
All this according to his lawyer Jackie Frazier-Lyde(Joe Fraziers daughter)

No doubt he has a case. Doesn't change the fact that he's a ****ing moron!Originally Posted by EEmain
