Vikings being laughed at for ‘BRING IT ALL’ trademark application filed days before being eliminated – Bring Me The News

It’s probably pretty common for NFL teams to file trademarks on slogans they plan to use, but in the world of professional football, timing is everything. According to Josh Gerben, a trademark specialist and founder of Gerben Law Firm, the Vikings filed a trademark application for “BRING IT ALL.” The funniest part about the application is that it was filed on Dec. 28, just days before their Dec. 30 loss to the Bears that washed their season down the drain and paved the way for the Eagles to make the playoffs instead.

[コメント]NFLのバイキングは昨年NFCの決勝でイーグルズに負け、その時のスローガンは”Bring it home”(スーパーボールがミネアポリスで開催されたため)でした。今年こそはの勢いでQBを大金を積んで入れ替えて臨んだシーズンでしたが、最終週にNFC北地区ライバルのベアーズに敗れ、プレイオフ進出が阻まれています。“IT”はバイキングスのスーパーボール進出を意味すると思われ、USPTOへの出願がその望みを絶たれる3日前ということで失笑をかっているという記事になります。

The Dolphins came up with a game-winning, lateral-filled, 69-yard touchdown with 16 seconds remaining to secure the victory, which became recognized as the “Miami Miracle” and the “Miracle in Miami” on television and social media after the game.

What began as a mostly trivial story about two NFL players sharing the same nickname — and last name — turned ugly for Dolphins rookie Minkah Fitzpatrick. After he and his family were badgered on Twitter for filing a trademark on FitzMagic, a moniker also used by Buccaneers backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, Minkah decided it was an unnecessary headache.

The Green Bay Packers franchise was far from a title contender this past year, finishing the 2017 NFL regular season with a 7-9 record, good for third place in the NFC North with only the Chicago Bears trailing the team.

筆者も1度グリーンベイに行ったことがあり、ミシガン湖に面したグリーンベイは本当にランボウフィールドを中心とした農業が主たる産業の静かな田舎町ですが、パッカーズが町の誇りであることは間違いありません。ブレットファーブ、アーロンロジャースと優秀なQBが続き、20年以上もNFC Northのプレイオフの常連です。シカゴ市民的には、そろそろアーロンロジャースの力も落ちてくるころかもと思う次第です。脱線しましたが、商標の問題は、Greenbay PackersがTITLETOWN, TXに異議申立したとの内容です。
