This one isn’t the fans, obviously, they’ve all gone home. (Well played, Goodell!)
They’re getting sued for a really, really stupid marketing move.
They are accused of lifting the tagline of a Sports site… one that was already pretty hostile to the NFL and some of its lame decisions lately — and not just the Kneeling, either.
The website Barstool Sports has threatened to file a lawsuit claiming the NFL stole its “Saturdays Are For The Boys” trademark.
On “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” website founder Dave Portnoy argued that the NFL committed a copyright violation by putting shirts on sale featuring team logos and the words “Sundays Are For The [Team Name].”
“The NFL has no problem suing everybody when they think they’ve even sneezed at what they’re doing. So, we decided we’d fight back on this one,” Portnoy said.
Host Tucker Carlson asked why the NFL didn’t just pay Barstool Sports for the right to use the trademark.
“Apparently they thought they could just take it, or they didn’t think we’d notice, possibly, which I don’t know how it’s possible because we hate them and they hate us,” Portnoy said.
There was ‘no love lost’ between them to begin with.
After DeflateGate, some staff from that website did a sit-in at NFL HQ… and were arrested.
Doesn’t the NFL have some kind of a top-notch marketing team? Why would they need to recycle someone else’s slogan?
Incompetence or arrogance?
A shirt that aptly describes the NFL — No Fans Left.
NFL’s TV ratings are plummeting as more players refuse to stand for the national anthem. It’s
hard to believe that a nation that has given these players the opportunity to achieve so much is
so easily disrespected. Even worse, consider the men and women who have laid down their
lives so that these athletes could live in a relatively safe country and enjoy their fame and
Hard-working, patriotic Americans don’t want to watch a bunch of whiners play football. They
want to watch winners.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-
Made t-shirt press!
