Nine-Year-Old in Football Contract Dispute

Football Brain_2One of the images at left is a human brain.  The other is a football.  Tony Mathis carries something like at least one of these objects in his skull at all times.  You be the judge as to which.

As Tulsa World reports, Mr. Mathis is suing the Indian Nations Football Conference for the third time in a year. This time, the suit alleges a breach of contract and seeks $10,000 in damages.  Why?  Because the Conference will not let Mathis's 9-year-old son, Brayden, play in its games this fall, apparently because the father is such a pill.  Tony Mathis was banned from games last season and, according to the Tulsa World, he continued to attend games after he was banned and had to be removed by police.  Mathis is apparently contending that the Conference's refusal to let Brayden play violates a prior agreement.  The Conference claims that it only agreed to let Brayden play for one season.  It made no commitment for the coming season.
