Not just the Saints, EVERY team in the NFL. Now how is it possible for them to do this, and not get notes from the NFL?

Because they're made in CHINA by Chinese knock-off companies (probably the same S- when you think about it)

Not yet at least..... for the moment they're just making the clothing

As far as the who dat stuff...... if no one ever trademarked it, then the NFL/NO Saints could copyright/trademark the phrase like any catch phrase a corporation uses. They probably realized much of your fanbase is purchasing more WHO DAT gear than the officially licensed NFL apparell.

I have a little (very little) online shop where I come up with offbeat/different JETS and football shirts (mostly for friends/family) but sold a few.
I replaced some with some Saints/Colts designs for the SB and several random people across the country hopped on the Saints/who dat? stuff. Even some guy in IN.

OH well NFL....... it'll be awhile before they can truly enforce it.

no, they're already targeting specific vendors with cease & desist letters. The intimidation alone is enough. I got thru to Jim Rome today, but the screener said they werent talking about it today, and wanted to wait till its a bigger story. I still think we should raise hell.

Well at the moment if you say New Orelans you are thinking..................SAINTS. So I guess the NFL better come on in and put an order on every damn piece of paper, clothing, .... that has New Orleans on. And God forbid that it has any of black, gold or white on!

here's the link to the online petition thread

http://blackandgold.com/saints/24470...tml#post200833

We might even considering shouting over to site-X, if they feel the same way we do, and seeing if they'll help this.

anyone here Bi-Boardal?

update: wow, 12,000 signatures... guess Im not the only Who Dat outraged by this.

I found this excerpt to be priceless!
I am hereby advocating that Warner Communications Inc., parent of DC Comics, sue the NFL because ``Super Bowl'' infringes on the Superman trademark.
Also, Rome called.
They want their numerals back.
