    Imagine the uproar if the NFL tryed to pull the same stunt with jerry jones Texas/Cowboy star or their "America's Team" phrase.

    Why no enforcement before the Saints got to the SB? Answer $$$
    The phrase is hard to trademark, since it has been around in everyday Cajun life for ever.
    The phrase WAS actually trademarked before by someone else.
    The NFL back pedaled - first no "WHO DAT", then no "WHO DAT with Black/Gold", then no "Who Dat with the Fleur de Lis". Finally, no "Who Dat" with with Sanits or NFL on it.
    The last one makes sense.

    The NFL might could have done this a year ago, but not now. It was a BAD business decision. Business decisions can make money, but not good marketing sometimes. This was a REALLY bad marketing move.

    I have owned Who Dat shirts with the Saints emblem for a long time - not licensed.

    The very argument you made about "no distinguishing symbols" is the VERY argument that hurts the NFL. There is nothing unique about the phrases and symbols - it is pure New Orleans. Trademarking that is difficult.

    Anyway, it all comes down to timing. BAD BAD NFL decision on the timing.
    I absolutely agree with everything you wrote. The timing was horrible, but I feel their pain. The Saints are the only team in the NFL that doesn't have much control over its logos. Just look at the list:



    Maybe Dallas, Indy, Packers and San Diego have "weak" logos as well.

    About the previous trademark. It was unregistered. Since it wasn't registered, there is no way they could enforce the phrase or design serarately, only the combination. If it were the phrase, then I doubt that would stand any more than the NFL trying to trademark it. (Especially since it creates no confusion over the origin of the product or service.)

    Here is a link to David Vitter's Website where he is selling his tshirts. All proceeds go to the Brees Dream Foundation. I'm going to buy one.
