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.)
