Default Fan files Harbowl trademark 1 yr. ago...NFL pressures him to cease & desist

Classic. NFL pushes its fat finger into the chest of an NFL fan, and the fan obliges out of fear of having to pay the NFL's court costs should it ever go to court and the NFL win against the fan.

Typical .. we received a cease & desist letter from the NFL a few years ago also. We decided to continue & resist instead.

It's frustrating when the entity that controls your favorite sport is also one you hold in almost complete contempt. Every time I see a commercial on television that has to refer to the Super Bowl as "The Big Game" I throw up in the back of my mouth just a little. It's a real conflict at this point for me. I love NFL football and I just absolutely hate the NFL and pretty much everything they stand for or do other than what directly relates to the game itself. Even that has become so bloated and filled with advertisement from the networks, sponsors, and the league itself that there are times during the season when I just suddenly think "Why am I sitting through this ****?". If you've got a recorded game from 25-30 years ago it's amazing how little extraneous garbage is in the broadcast. There are no in-game spots for programs that appear on the network later in the week. At no point does some guy from "NCSCSI:Chicago" or whatever walk out in front of the field and strike a pose while the color commentator invites you to check out the most watched new show on television. It's like you're actually watching a sporting event where the game is the most important part of the broadcast.

The NFL gets his trademarks because they got a bigger treasure chest than he does.

He's a Colts fan, who cares? He got Andrew Luck, he should be happy with that.

Here's a story of a guy who stood up to the big corporation.

Unfortunately, it cost him a ton of money to do so.

I think you'll find thats a downside to your extremely capitalist culture. Not having a go here, just an observation, plenty of upsides to it as well...its just something that particularly bugs me as well, and it is illegal to so blatantly expose the viewer to such things over here, especially the tone of the advertisements I find to be particularly offensive. I find it funny, but then I'm tuning in for 3-4 hours a week, I note that hour long programmes that get brought over tend to take up a 50 minute slot (with plenty of adverts) on British TV.

It is gradually getting worse over here as well, but with the way Europe are intent on continually ****ing me in the ass until I'm working to the age of 80, I'm sure my grandfather fought a war to stop Germany telling me what I can and can't do, so we're going to have to embrace it I think.
