Papierflieger können einen verletzen: Ein Football-Team beantwortet den Beschwerdebrief eines Fans episch


Ein Dauerticketinhaber der Cleveland Browns hatte 1974 ein recht ungewöhnliches Anliegen, mit welchem er sich an das Team wendete. Dieses reagierte auch prompt mit einer Antwort, die in die Geschichtsbücher gehört.

In November of 1974, a Browns fan and season ticket holder sent a letter to the team regarding a concern of his. The Cleveland Browns (specifically, their general counsel) sent back an absolutely epic response.


Für alle die, die es nicht so gut lesen können, hier die Übersetzung:


I am one of your season ticket holders who attends or tries to attend every game. It appears one of the pastimes of several fans has become the sailing of paper airplanes generally made out of the game program. As you know, there is the risk of serious eye injury and perhaps an ear injury as a result of such airplanes. I am sure that this has been called to your attention and that several of your ushers and policemen witnessed the same.

Please be advised that since you are in a position to control or terminate such action on the part of fans, I will hold you responsible for any injury sustained by any person in my party attending one of your sporting events. It is hoped that this disrespectful and possibly dangerous activity will be terminated.

Very truly yours,

Roetzel & Andress
