How NFL player gets kicked off team for eating coconut meat

The NFL has been hit with a class-action lawsuit over the NFL Players Association’s decision to ban players from eating coconut, whitefish and other meat.

According to the complaint filed Friday in federal court in Miami, the lawsuit, which seeks to force the NFLPA to stop enforcing the ban on the players, claims the ban violates the players’ right to free speech.

The NFLPA, in response to the lawsuit and its allegations of First Amendment violations, said the NFL is standing firm on the decision.
