You must have grown up in the 90's. Nobody was calling it the "West Coast Offense" until Bill Parcells slighted the team following the Giants' win in the 1985-86 wildcard playoff game. He meant it as an insult, but it stuck. Nobody and their "mamma" coined the term. It was a term coined for the Sid Gillman Chargers' offenses.
What's really idiotic is that you took a tongue-in-cheek remark about the FBI having a file on me literally.
I don't believe WCO is under copy right so it is open to interpretation. Even Walsh refused to use WCO as a system name, whether to describe his or any other coach's. Your attempt to be the guiding expert in all things Walsh is amusing though and you have all those tapes! While the WCO started out as a put down, much as calling Walsh "a genius" was a put down, both have become venerated through time and by success.
