Believe me, I love sports just as much as the next guy. Sports are my livelihood, but that doesn’t mean I don’t find it completely hilarious when a person can’t distinguish the line between fandom and reality. That’s not to say that sports aren’t reality, as we have all been through plenty of ups and downs with our favorite teams to know that they are. What I’m trying to say is…actually, just read this post that a landlord in Green Bay recently wrote on The Landlord Protection Agency website and you’ll probably know what I mean.

I know you guys will laugh and call me a “troll”, but here’s my very real situation.

I own a home in Green Bay, Wisconsin. My job took me down Lake Michigan a ways towards Milwaukee, but I do plan on living back in Green Bay when I retire in a few years, so I am renting the place out as I do not want to sell it. As you can imagine, people are VERY fanatic about the Green Bay Packers there. My new tenants lied to me on my application and are actually Chicago Bears fans! They have made this known by putting out Bears crap all over the front lawn (flags, lawn gnomes, placemats, etc.). This has pissed off my neighbors something fierce as they do not want to live next to such blowhards.

Can I evict them based on their lying to me on my application about being Packer fans? I would never have rented to them if I knew they were not as my house is located within walking distance of Lambeau field. I’d rather take a loss and stay there the 8 times a year I go a Packers game instead of renting to some Bears fans.

Any help you can give would be appreciated.

Believe it or not, this landlord is out of luck. As several respondents pointed out, he or she could probably find a way to make the tennants take down some of the Bears memorabilia, but they cannot be evicted simply because of that. And I would imagine the landlord would have to come up with some pretty damn good reasons to make them take down the Bears stuff, too.

We already knew there were plenty of rabid Packers fans out there based on instances like this one, but this landlord has to be located at or near the top of the fan tree.
