    Stadium Sued Over Beer Scam

    Fans sue over beer scam CenturyLink Arena, Idaho


    FANS are suing the owners of an American stadium after discovering that small and large beer cups at the venue hold exactly the same amount of liquid.
    You can buy two different sized beers at CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho — the $7 “large” beer and a $4 “small” beer.
    But Brady Peck, Michele Bonds and William and Brittany Graham, fans of the Idaho Steelheads hockey team, have gone to court claiming that the amount of alcohol in both cups is the same and they have been ripped off every time they ordered the large beer.



    In the lawsuit lodged in the Fourth Judicial District Court, Boise, against the arena’s owner, Block 22 LLC, Peck claims he went to at least 30 events over the past three years at the arena, including a hockey game on March 5, and that he’s purchased beer each time. The other three plaintiffs say they have been attending sporting events at the venue for five years and that they bought at least one large $7 beer at each event.
    “While different shapes, both cup sizes hold substantially the same amount of liquid and are not large versus small in actual capacity,” the group’s attorney, Wyatt Johnson, wrote in the lawsuit. “Defendants knowingly sold each of their beers in a similar manner at each event held at the arena where beer was sold for at least the last five years.”
    The fans are seeking $10,000 in damages for being allegedly ripped off.

    At the time, Eric Trapp, the president of the Idaho Steelheads hockey team and CenturyLink Arena, wrote on the team’s Facebook page that the company had ordered 16-ounce and 20-ounce cups and never intended to mislead customers.

    Bastards!


    Note to ShitBloke stadium owner;

    16 oz to 20oz = 25% increase.

    $4 to $7 = 75% increase.

    Still a ripoff.

    5/4s of the beer, but 7/4s of the price - that doesn't seem like good value; I thought that bigger sizes were supposed to work out cheaper...

    Whatever way you look at it, the folks who bought 'big' beers were fuked over.
    How do I post these pictures???

    Never mind the actual cup sizes, the authorities should be questioning why not one from millions of punters over the years could figure out that the 'large' beer is more expensive per 100ml.

    I'm quite distraught that Chang classic has been reduced to 6 % from 6.4 % alcohol but the price remains the same.

    Its not a money issue but its just that I like high alcohol contents beer.

    Anyway, fuk em, I'll just drink Dark beer Lao which is 6.5 %.
