Default Re: ESPN's Merrill Hodge says Manziel has "Bust" written all over him

And I though he didn't want to be "Johnny Football" anymore...?

Johnny Manziel could soon own the trademark for the moniker he’s made famous.

ESPN’s Darren Rovell reports that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office sent a letter Thursday to Kenneth R. Reynolds Family Investments rejecting its claim that the “Johnny Football” phrase wasn’t referring to an individual.

“Registration is refused because the applied-for mark consists of or includes a name, portrait, or signature identifying a particular living individual whose written consent to register the mark is not of record,” the examining attorney wrote.

Kenneth R. Reynolds Family Investments filed for the trademark on Nov. 1, 2012, while Manziel was in the midst of his Heisman Trophy winning season at Texas A&M. The quarterback’s corporation, JMAN2 Enterprises, filed for the trademark on Feb. 2, 2013.

The College Station-based investment firm has up to six months to appeal the ruling.
