Bon Jovi owes $125,000 for Soul fees, suit says
By Michael Klein

"Have a nice day" was not exactly what Jon Bon Jovi said to the former sales manager of the Philadelphia Soul, who alleges that the rock icon and his partners in the Arena Football League team have not paid him nearly $125,000 in wages and commissions.

Joseph Krause of Jenkintown claims in his Common Pleas Court filing that at a meeting in late December, Bon Jovi and other team officials told employees that the team was shutting down and that they would be paid two weeks' severance. The suit says that Bon Jovi sarcastically remarked, "If you see us on the street begging for food, please give us a hand."

Krause alleges he was owed $83,359 in commissions for the previous season and $41,456 in commissions for the canceled '09 season. He said was told that the Soul would not pay him those commissions.

When he protested, he was told he would be given a check for $5,000 if he relinquished any further claims, according to the suit. When he declined, he was told he would get nothing, the suit alleges.

I hope they can get all this resolved and we have a season in 2010. I wonder, as a minority owner, wouldn't Richie be involved in this as well?
