Seven New England Patriots season ticket holders are citing "emotional distress" in their lawsuit against the NFL.

NBC 10 reports that the fans are trying to get back a first-round draft pick for the team.

They officially filed their lawsuit against the NFL on Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Boston and have named the league, commissioner Roger Goodell and Patriots owner Robert Kraft as defendants.

The complaint says the NFL's decision to revoke the pick in this month's draft was "arbitrary and capricious" and add that Goodell relied on "false premises and biased 'investigations'" when handing down punishment.

The suit also criticizes Kraft for not fighting the league's decision harder.

One fan from Connecticut says this scandal has left his seven-year-old daughter "disillusioned" and another from Florida claims the punishment has caused him "stress and lack of sleep."

Sounds like a pretty thin case to me, but it will be interesting to see where this one goes.

Neither the NFL or the Patriots have commented on the lawsuit as of yet.
