Sports Fans Coalition (SFC) is dedicated to protecting the rights and interests of sports fans nationwide.

Soccer fans witnessed a major upset when Portugal beat France in the Euro 2016 final. And speaking of upset, that doesn't even begin to describe what the French fans looked like after losing to that smaller country to the south. Rioters arrested under the Eiffel Tower. Mon Dieu!

On Sunday, an extraordinary basketball season climaxed with the Game 7 matchup between basketball's top two stars. In the end, Lebron James dropped a triple-double as the Cavaliers edged Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors, earning the playoff MVP award and bringing a championship to Cleveland after the city endured more than half a century of pro sports futility. Now that we've caught our breath, let's look at two key issues facing the NBA that fans should be paying attention to this summer.

The NHL heads into its offseason on the heels of a thrilling playoff run that saw its brightest star, Sidney Crosby, add even more hardware to his trophy case as the Penguins put together a dominant run that ended a recent string of disappointing finishes.

If you think we missed anything, or just want to speak your mind about the ones we called out, head over to the Sports Fan Coalition Facebook page to weigh in.

A couple weeks ago, we put the owners of our favorite teams on watch. For too long, they've gotten away with anti-fan behavior — making profits more important than the fan experience, in ways big and small.

Here we go again. The Texas Rangers have decided that their stadium, Global Life Park, is obsolete and needs to be replaced.
We are led by the fans, for the fans.
We fight to make sure our favorite sports put the fans first.
We call out the leagues and owners when they're greedy and dishonest.
We protect our favorite players to keep the game safe and exciting.
We spend our hard-earned money on tickets and jerseys,
so we have the power to make sports better when we work together.
We cheer, we scream, we speak out—
because we are sports fans, and we have a voice.
