Flyers fan suing Domi, Maple Leafs

The Philadelphia Flyers fan who tumbled into a penalty box with Tie Domi two years ago - and was allegedly pummeled as shown on countless TV replays - is suing just about everyone involved in the incident.

Christopher Falcone, 38, claimed he was beat up by the Toronto Maple Leafs forward on March 29, 2001. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that he filed suit Monday in Common Pleas Court against a group of defendants that included Domi, the Maple Leafs, NHL linesman Kevin Collins, the National Hockey League and Comcast-Spectacor Inc., which owns the Flyers and the First Union Center.

Falcone, says his lawyer, is too much of a fan to sue his favorite team. "From the heart he decided not to sue the Flyers," lawyer John P. Williamson told the paper.

The suit seeks less than $50,000 US. Williamson said that makes the case eligible for arbitration with the possibility of a hearing within six months. Falcone, according to the suit, was seated behind the penalty box when Domi got sent there. The suit says Domi began spraying taunting fans with his water bottle, and Falcone was drenched.

Falcone maintains he leaned on the glass partition to grab the water bottle and protect nearby fans. The partition, he said, gave way and he fell in. Domi then pulled Falcone's jacket over his head and, as the suit describes it, "violently and brutally assaulted and battered" the fan.

The suit also alleges that Collins joined in the battering. It also calls Comcast-Spectacor negligent for having a partition that gave way. Falcone, according to his lawyer, "got the heck beat out of him, went to the hospital, had not a lot of treatment, but somebody has to pay for it."

(This guy should just let it go, now the whole thing will be replayed again numerous times, reminding everyone what a clown he was tumbling into the penalty box.) :D:lol::evil: B) :P

I hate Domi, but that guy deserved to get the snot kicked out of him, and then some.

I seriously hope the courts throw this case out.

That's the first thing I wondered. There oughta be a time limit for filing suits like this - this is a frivolous lawsuit anyway, IMO.

Sues everybody but his favorite team. Spells out F-A-I-R in my books.

Perhaps the SBT will sue Tie Domi.

Apparently the SBT's bowling ball is missing.

I didn't look like he just went to grab the water bottle. From what I recall. That drunken tool was just looking for a fight.

pssh, Flyer fans. Ruthless, Drunk, and just further more morons.

That was one of the greatest hockey incidents I will ever see. Laughed my little ass off when I first saw it.

Seriously, NJay.

When an obnoxious Flyer fan falls into a penalty box with Tie Domi in it, that's what the SBT calls a WIN-WIN situation!!!

How sublime.

so he didnt make a ridiculous jump about 4 rows from the seats breaking down the penalty box?

He is suing to keep Domi's mind off the playoffs for when Philly plays them.
