Fans sue the NFL, the Giants, the Jets over the New York name in the Meadowlands

It’s quite peace be upon you, Mary!

A pair of New York football fans have called out a loud voice in a $6 billion class action lawsuit against the Jets, Giants and the National Football League.

They modified their suit which initially demanded both teams pack their own pads and leave the Garden State for the Big Apple.

Now they’re making a more manageable demand — teams can stay in New Jersey but have to get rid of “New York” from their name.

“New York City is the Big Apple, home to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, Wall Street and the Stock Exchange, and the Broadway music bar parades…,” according to the amended complaint in Manhattan federal court that was filed last month.

MetLife Stadium is located in the swamps of East Rutherford, NJ…, which has a population of less than 10,000, and is the 116th city in New Jersey. It is not exactly an exciting and romantic destination[,] And there is absolutely no relationship whatsoever between the Giants Stadium and the Jets and MetLife with the city, county or state of New York.”

The Giants fled the Empire State in search of no greener pastures in the Meadowlands in 1976, and Gates followed them 8 years later. The two teams now share a MetLife Stadium having previously played in the Meadowlands at the former Giants Stadium.

Prosecutors Abdiel Soiro and Maggie Wilkins insist they were deceived by false advertising and other deceptive practices into believing that the Giants and Jets were still playing in New York and bombed some important greens to watch Blue Blue and Jang Green play at MetLife Stadium.

Swiro, who describes himself as an avid soccer fan, told The Post that he was shocked a few years ago when he discovered his beloved giants who actually call East Rutherford, NJ, home. By then it was too late because he had already bought tickets.

The Manhattan-based financial actor quipped that the experience had been as unbearable as coach Joe Judge watched the Giants in the past few years — and Schleb to MetLife made the experience even worse.

“I spent more time traveling to get to the game than I actually did,” said Soiro, 32, the sole plaintiff in the original complaint filed in January.

After the league and clubs mocked the demand for teams to return to New York as if it was Marc Sanchez “stutter” The complaint was modified late last month with the new request.

Amended claim also asks MetLife to drop it “cash-free” franchise policy which has been in effect since last season, saying it violated New Jersey law. She added that Wilkins, a New Mexico native who is now considered the home of the Big Apple, is a second plaintiff.

The class action case also seeks to represent anyone who has been deceived by team marketing since 2016 to attend NFL games on the field.

Swiro and Wilkins stepped up their argument on Monday.

Their attorney Evan Spencer has filed legal papers outlining how MetLife Stadium and the rest of the Meadowlands have been a haven for lawbreakers who illegally dump toxic waste — as well as traditional garbage disposal companies — not to be confused with the Big Apple.

“Not only is Meadowlands in New York, but it was the site of one of the largest landfills in the country for decades before defendants’ stadiums were built on top of it,” Spencer wrote, asking for the case to proceed.

He also claimed that the accused had recently been removed MetLife Stadium website Only after filing a lawsuit to clarify that the place is not in New York.

The NFL, the Gates and the Giants filed legal papers on April 25 seeking to dismiss the lawsuit, insisting that “teams’ continued use of ‘New York’ as part of their team names is not misleading at all — it merely refers to the teams’ hometown.”

“These allegations were calculated to score points in the headlines – not the courtroom,” their lawyers wrote.

They also noted that MetLife is only 7 miles from Manhattan – which is within a 75-mile radius that covers NFL Territory rights for teams covering parts of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

However, Evan Neal, who picked the first round for the 2022 Giants, admitted recently that he even thought Big Blue played in New York until he was drafted by the club last month.

“I didn’t even know the Giants were in Jersey. So this was news to me,” A Florida native and former University of Alabama starHe laughs while addressing reporters two weeks ago. “I thought they were in New York.”
