Who Dat? - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

That is correct. I've seen old 78 rpm records with who dat on them.

In 1981, the Cincinnati Bengals fans and players had started with their similar "Who Dey" cheer.
Who dey is so lame I'd have to move out of Ohio. Really, please stop.

who dey. puhlease.

Sure you can. You are not trying to sell it.

This entire forum, however, is subject to a lawsuit. Howsabout them apples?

"This telecast is copyrighted by the NFL for the private use of our audience. Any other use of this telecast or of any pictures, descriptions, or accounts of the game without the NFL's consent, is prohibited."

fwiw, I always hit the escape key to stop the animations.

It is hard to read a thread with stuff jumping up and down or
spinning around in a circle on the page.

How about we merge these two topics while we're at it Halo?

The NFL didn't care until games were being won and national attention shifted to the Saints.

I doubt this forum is "really" subject to lawsuits because there's no money in it for the NFL at this time.

Anyone knows who owns "Americas Team"? I've seen plenty of shirts with that crap on it and they weren't NFL branded.

Yeah and what about "SKOL Vikings". Oh wait, no one cares about these two any longer.

"accounts of the game, etc"

I'm not taking sides. That is their take on the matter. It could be argued
they've become anal retentive but so much money is at stake they slap
every small guy they can in an effort to control the profitablity.

There are so many bootleg Who Datters is ain't funny is the reality of the situation.

Locally every mom and pop under the sun has been painting who dat
on anything and everything possible and trying to sell it. People are greedy.

Reminds me of the music industry, somehow.

:-p
Interesting take ... it's still BS .... who owns the trademark "who dat"?

And ... +1, Exile, on the Skol one!

Not sure. I don't claim to know who dat, just to be one.

This web site is indeed at risk. The NFL disclaimer doesn't say, make money...

it says ACCOUNTS OF THE GAME.

Again, I've seen the NFL tell retired players to be careful with www logo use or get in legal hot water. That wasn't a for profit endeavor.

You think this place is immune? C'mon now.
