    [QUOTE=Charlie Brown;4470840]The legal answer is no and Tebow's lawyers are NUTS!!!!!

    The legal theory I assume they are pushing is called appropraition. That is where you take another's likeness or image without permission unfortunately for them Tebow doesn't own the the rights to either the number 15 or the name of Jesus for that matter....

    It is all so silly.[/QUOTE]

    unless they are dong it on behalf of the Jets who probably did not give permission for such a substantially similar logo to be used.

    Tebow is definitely a good football move. Look, I am for Sanchez starting, but he has never been pushed before. Tebow's presence will certainly push him. And we will see if Sanchez has it or not. Sooner we find out the better.

    With Tebow on the field defenses must account for him and plan for him. Just puts more pressure on the defense. Don't care if he's only a decoy. They must prepare for him. But he won't be only a decoy since he is a good football player.

    But the leadership qualities and fact he has won EVERYWHERE he has played go a long way. Guys on the Jets are already seeing his positive impact. If you don't think Tebow is a good football and think it's just for publicity, then you don't know football.

    [QUOTE=Ryan's Revenge;4470842]The way some people talk about Sanchez, if I was in a bar and overheard them, and I was Sanchez's brother, I would leave out of embarrassment.

    Right, the jets needed a Vet at B/U QB to help him along, not to challenge him for the starting role. And if Sanchez is injured to perform at an NFL level.

    That's not the Jets logo. Jets have no say in the matter. Nor does Tebow.

    What is know is that Rex at the end of the year said that Sanchez is the qb and the team needs to get behind him. Woody then goes out and adds a divisive element to the locker room. Tebow believes he is the man to lead the jets and he will be expressive about it. A great trait to have for a qb, but not one when your starter is less than brimming with confidence.

    The jets invested the #5 pick in the draft with him, they are bringing in a new offense for him to learn and now he has to look over his shoulder and listen to Tebow chants.

    ... i was against the tebow move but now that it's done i'm willing to see the impact on the field ...

    ... the season will go based on whether sanchez can improve his performance this year regardless of tebow being behind him ...

    ... i personally believe the media and a few of you all are making the impact of tebow fans to be a lot more than it actually will be ...

    ... tebow certainly has many fans due to religious reasons & college fans etc ...

    ... even coupling that with jets fans who would prefer him at qb over sanchez ... i couldn't imagine being over 10% and in truth i'd guess it will fall in the 3-5% range ...

    ... we'll just have to wait and see ... and as long as sanchez picks his game up it will never become an issue ...

    Understood, but if Sanchez plays well, he won't have to look over his shoulder. Sanchez can be really good (he basically is learning how to play at the NFL level since he had such limited college experience), but for 3 seasons he knew he could get away with mistakes and sulking because we had nobody else to replace him with. This time around, he knows he could get yanked. Some guys need that fire and this year we will see if Sanchez is one of those players.

    We are assuming that OP is in fact accurate. I'm not prepared to make that assumption just yet.

    The makers of cubby tee just got a letter from Tebow's lawyer to cease and desist, about the above merchandise. Rightly so my man rightly so.[/QUOTE]

    Maybe Im missing it, but where's the reference to Tebow, #15, etc? He owns the rights to the word Jesus now?

    What if a Christian who thinks Tebow is overrated wanted to rock that shirt?

    Did you sleep at a Holiday INN expressor go to law school?

    the similarity is striking and the JETS can make them stop, I am betting.

    Coca-cola was unable to stop "coke" t-shirts with a coke spoon. And that was a drug vs a soft drink.

    I'm now lawyer but I am a graphic designer who understands copyright law as part of my business.

    Tebow will not prevail.

    what is a coke spoon? do you have a link to this I'd be interested to read about it before responding. That's not really enough information to go on, especially if it was obvious satire that a reasonable person could not possibly have believed was produced or sanctioned by Coca Cola.
