Re: Unsound and unsuccessful defensive line twists made by Longhorns, INC against Texas fans regarding the atrocious Longhorns run defense.

Dear Mr. Diaz:

We represent Texas fans in connection with the above-referenced matter. Longhorns, INC, its directors, officers, agents, employees and assigns (collectively, "Texas football") are hereby warned and notified to CEASE AND DESIST making unsound and unsuccessful defensive line twist calls regarding the run defense, Texas fans, and their ongoing matters with Texas football.

It has come to our attention that unsound calls were made by Mr. Diaz. On the 20th of October, 2012, and on prior occasions to which they will testify, our clients believe that Mr. Diaz knowingly and with malice repeatedly called defensive end-defensive tackle twists on early downs against running plays by the Baylor Bears, even though said calls repeatedly resulted in large gains by Baylor running backs.

The calls made by Texas football regarding Texas fans are unsound, defamatory, and constitute tortious interference with the enjoyment of Texas football by our clients, and as such, are actionable under Texas law.

If our client is forced to commence a lawsuit against Longhorns, INC in order to stop continued unsound and unsuccessful defensive line twists, be advised that we will seek recovery of all attorneys' fees and costs incurred herein as a result, as well as punitive damages due to emotional hardships suffered as a result of the actions of Mr. Diaz. While we certainly hope this is not necessary, we are prepared to pursue whatever avenues are necessary on behalf of our clients to stop the continued unsound and unsuccessful calls defensively against the run game made against Texas fans by Texas football and Mr. Diaz.
