It's not because of the dumb expression that they were told to stop.
no, they were selling shirts with a fleur-de-lis on it with the saints slogan.
the fleur-de-lis isnt an NFL trademarked logo. as long as it wasnt the official saints logo, it shouldnt matter. its perfectly legal to stick a common fleur-de-lis on a shirt with a fan made slogan on it and sell them.
the NFL is trying to say that symbol combined with that slogan is NFL trademark, but in reality neither is. i dont see the point of this lawsuit.
if someone put a plain "SF" on a shirt with "dont tell me, show me", as long as they didnt use the NFL trademark SF logo, it would be legal. its no different than this.
