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

It's bad enough that Al "Crypt Reeker" Davis forced the Ravens to change their logo because of the shield, which looks nothing like that crap they have on their helmets. Oh, does anyone remember the Brass? The NHL and the St. Louis Blews for the minor league hockey team to change their logo because of one horn when the Brass had three. I can see if there is some concrete evidence about the NFL's rights and bylaws, but this is ridiculous. Nobody cared when the Saints were annual doormats. Now that the team is in the Big Show (Go ahead, take that from me, I dare ya!!), they are showing up late like a crackhead. FORTY-THREE YEARS LATE!!!

A good place to start letting the NFL know how you feel is the PR department. They'll understand that this has the potential to be really bad for the NFL.

From what i heard, the Rights to "WHO DAT" Isn't the issue, it's the Rights to the Saints Logo (the Fleur De Lis) And The Name "Saints" on anything, most of our Saints Logo and Saints named stuff just happened to have "WHO DAT" on it.
Someone probably exaggerated the story a bit to get people in an uproar..

no, i listened to WWL a moment ago... they were going after people selling anything black and gold... and ANY fleur, not just the Saints trademark fleur.

i really dont think the NFL wants this to become a big story... keep talking about it, and watch and see if it doesnt get interesting. we've made our voices heard before....

Well if they are trying to stop anything with the Fleur de lis on it and black and gold, they will have a fight on their hands, thats just ridiculous, first the Fleur de lis don't even belong to American's, it's a French/Religious Symbol that have been used for centuries not decades.
And even after that the city of New Orleans when founded kept that symbol as a city trademark along with the crescent sign.
The Fleur De Lis has a Deeper meaning than a damn Football game or any modern games for that matter, they will lose that one.. Besides Ed Hartley have been using that on his cloths for a while now, why haven't they targeted that clothing designer?.

Black and Gold? How can you Trade mark colors or the 3 words.. They don't own it..
The Saints i agree, they own the rights to that as a Football name and it shouldn't be printed on to cloths that relate to football and be sold without permission.

But i'll go listen to the WWL Podcast to see what this is all about.
