Grand Forks, ND – After it was learned that the NCAA is threatening the University of North Dakota with more penalties and sanctions if the fans continue to yell out “Sioux” at the end of the National Anthem, Sioux fans are planning to sue.

One older woman who has been attending Fighting Sioux hockey games since 1943 said: “This is complete bullshit – the NCAA telling us what we, the fans, can and cannot say. This really fricking bites. Makes me so mad I want to throw my dentures out onto the ice!”

Another fanatic, who is pre-law, opined: “I do believe a crowd of sports fans has the right under our freedom of speech to verbally cheer for a team in any way they see fit. The National Collegiate Athletic Association which was founded by “The Cowboy of the Dakotas“, President Teddy Roosevelt, does not have the power to limit fan speech before, during, or after a game.”

Litigious fans of the former Fighting Sioux plan on filing their complaint to petition the court to get this case certified as a civil rights class action lawsuit. Meanwhile, Ralph Engelstad was unavailable for comment but the word is that the gorgeous world-class Grand Forks hockey arena that bears his name will soon be torn down brick by brick.
