NFL Orders Shops to Stop Selling "Who Dat" Gear [Merged]

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm not getting this story where I'm at. I saw a little of it on NOLA.com. Who the hell do they think they are? Are they crazy? Does Roger Goodell have a God complex?...

Re: What Is This BS Im Hearing About the NFL Thinking They Own "Who Dat?"

yeah, we've heard the Who Dey vs. Who Dat thing for years. But now apparently the NFL thinks "Who Dat," which was something we, the fans started yelling back in the early 80s--- all of a sudden belongs to them, as if it is some kind of trademark. Bull$4I@! What else to they think they own? grass? They didnt invent grass either, but its not a stretch if they think they own a mere utterance yelled by fans.

Who Dat belongs to the fans.

FU NFL.

What's their point? They'll shut down any unlicensed vendors selling "Who Dat" tee-shirts? Good luck!

Yes!

Thats what I'm hearing. They're doing cease & desist letters. Whoever decided to do that is a complete Grinch.

Primadox, always great to have you here. Did you hear we stayed at Oak Alley Saturday night?

btw, the kids can skip one day of school, right????

As long as they don't put the Saints logo or use their colors they are fine. Who Dat came first before Who Dey and even documented in songs from like the 40's out of our area. It was around before the Saints when the cajuns would chant for the local college teams in the area.

I'm surprised that the NFL hasn't sued Webster's Dictionary for having words that contain the letters "n", "f", or "l".

That is likely true. I'd be leery, however.

The potential legal problems are not worth a short term windfall to some folks, is my point.

Many folks are misinformed about copyrights and trademarks. As an example I had someone threaten to sue me for using a word in an article in a arts/culture/music magazine. I referred to cybercafe in a general sense and some twit thought I was stepping on their intellectual property right toes.

I will digress before I type the word douchebag.

The thing to consider is someone, somewhere would want to sue you if you make money off of who dat.

I just want the Saints to win the Super Bowl. I don't give a ratsarse about making money on the deal.

Bootleg Who Dat!
