    I can understand him wanting to protect his nickname copyright..But..He needs too be concentrating on the game that even made his nickname profitable..Lots of distractions surrounding him since the season ended..I dunno..I don't wanna see a kid fail that has a chance to make history..Even if he's our rival..Get to the Pro's & then worry about copyrights..JMHO

    Manziel Takes Nickname Legal Action

    Kinda sick of the guy at this point. One loss should take of that though.

    Wasn't Johnny Unitas called Johnny Football? I'm not that old.

    EDITED:
    Should not have basically called for an injury. My apologies to everyone.
    I always like your posts & share your frustrations as well. I EXPECT that this years defense will NOT allow him to showboat. I don't call for injury either but I think the 2011 hits on Tyler Wilson are going be be love pats compared to what Deliverence Boy is going to see. He had better market up the circus while he can because not just Bama but ALL SEC teams have him on their game plan.

    Re: Manziel Takes Nickname Legal Action

    Here is my question. Did he come up with the nickname or someone else? If someone else did then he has to come to some sort of agreement with them. I am just guessing. RTR!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm too young to remember his playing days. I checked his Wiki article and the only nickname they mentioned was Johnny U. TIFWIW

    So, he can't profit from his name while in college but, he can profit from protecting his trademark while in college. Is see a new trend of athletes trademarking their names coming.


    I too swear that I have heard the term Johnny Football before Manziel was ever a glimmer of hope for A&M so, I don't understand how he can even trademark the term.

    It seems like I've heard it before, but it may just have been a generic name for a football hot shot. Though in his case, if the name specifically refers to him, he could claim rights to its usage. Someone who knows more about trademark law than I do (which would be just about anybody) might be able to explain it.

    It just sounds like Manziel is really getting too full of himself. That trip back to earth comes with a hard fall sometimes.
    Let those who don't want none have memories of not getting any. Let that not be their punishment, but their reward. Brother Dave Gardner

    Hey Daddy why doesn't Auburn have a number beside their name? 5 year old son during the iron bowl.
