Tony Seminary is a 1996 graduate of the University of Oregon and a season ticket holder for the Ducks football team. He attended the Boise State game, and witnessed the loss to the Broncos and LeGarrette Blount’s PunchGate up close and personal. After the game, Seminary wrote an email to Chip Kelly, and did what you may have dreamt of doing after traveling to watch your team put in an embarrassing performance on the road: he asked for a refund, and attached an invoice bureaucrat-style. From the original email:

I was so angry with the game (even before the post-game melee) I am sending you an invoice for my trip to Boise. The product on the field Thursday night is not something I was at all proud of, and I feel as though I’m entitled to my money back for the trip. Please see my invoice attached in this email. I will happily send along receipts if need be.

Unlike most fans, he actually wrote this up and sent it. Unlike most coaches, Chip Kelly responded with a personal check written to one Anthony Seminary...

“He could lose every game 50-0 and he’d still be my coach, our coach, through thick and thin.”

Chip Kelly, a man of his word, and like his bank, “Nice. Remarkably nice.”

Thanks to Joe.

Watch out Stoops lol

If every person did that the whole world of sports would be bankrupt.

Maybe he thought Anthony Seminary was a school for priests.

Way to set himself up for hundreds more letters from Oregon fans. I like the gesture but that's a bad precedent to set.
