NFL calls a New Orleans Saints-themed ‘Who Dat’ casket a trademark violation (Photo)

Well, it seems that the National Football League is back to its old practice of ticking off New Orleans Saints fans, and this time they’re going after some of the fans’ wishes after they’ve lived their life on earth, possibly.

According to a report from NOLA.com, a New Orleans casket store named “‘Til We Meet Again” was recently presented with a cease-and-desist letter from the league to stop selling this Saints-themed “Who Dat” casket, saying that it’s a trademark violation.

One of the managing partners of the shop, Jonathan LaHatte, says that the casket has been displayed in the front window of the shop since it opened back in October, and claims that this is just yet another example of the NFL trying to make a quick buck anyway they can by picking on the little guys.

“The league is repeating its aggressive tactics that they did in 2010 when the Saints went to the Super Bowl, trying to squeeze every penny out of a small business,” LaHatte said.

The report also stated that the NFL was approached for comment on the situation, and they haven’t heard back yet.

How much would an official license cost?

All they have to do is remove the fleur de lis and it is fine. The owner apparently doesn't want to pay a licensing fee or he would have.

The NFL has every right to protect what they own.

Another example of someone trying to make money off of that which he does not own or create.
