Longtime Chiefs photographer sues team

NFL Lockout Looms As Negotiations Are Extended Getty Images

Longtime Chiefs photographer Hank Young has sued the team for allegedly misusing his photographs and not paying him for them.

The Associated Press reports the Chiefs blew up Young’s photographs and placed them on concourses around the stadium when Arrowhead Stadium was renovated.

He was an independent contractor and not a Chiefs employee who says he didn’t know the team used his photographs in that way until the new Arrowhead opened.   Young wants the images taken down if he’s not paid.

The team says they appreciate Young’s service to the team, but they are disappointed by the lawsuit.

(And we’re disappointed this is the best post we could find because the owners locked the players out.)

    I’m also disappointed that this is the only thing you have to write about since the owners locked the players out … after the players walked out of mediation and decertified. Nice bias.

    I am ashamed to admit how much time I spend at PFT, but lately I find that i just cannot take the bias of the PFT reporters in nearly every article toward the players situation. The last paragraph of this story is another great example of the reporters here pushing an agenda. Keep your agenda, i can get my sports fix somewhere else.
