PAT-ENTLY SMUG & SNOOTY
****Y NEW ENGLAND TEMPTS FATE WITH '19-0' TRADEMARK
By CHUCK BENNETT

February 1, 2008 -- The Patriots are suffering from premature exhilaration.

The arrogant New England team has already applied for trademarks on "19-0" and "19-0 The Perfect Season." Three days before they beat the San Diego Chargers, and more than two weeks before Super Bowl XLII, the team egotistically filed paperwork with the US Patent and Trademark Office to cash in on sales of T-shirts, caps, posters and all kinds of Pats paraphernalia.

But the Pats have the wrong number.

The Post, ever confident that Eli Manning and company will squash the Pats on Sunday, spent $375 for its own trademark application yesterday - on "18-1."

Our application, No. 77385477, is pending.

And Bill Belichick and his bozos better wait a minuteman before counting their royalties.

"If the team gets wind of this and thinks, 'Maybe we jinxed ourselves,' well, the power of the human mind is incalculable, and if they begin thinking that, they will lose," warned Jordana Sands, a celebrity psychic from Manhattan.

Adding to the jinx, the official online NFL Shop has already started selling "19-0 Perfect Season" Super Bowl XLII championship tees and sweatshirts.

"I come from a town that's incredibly superstitious and there is a phrase, 'You don't want to disturb the gambling gods,' and there is a segment of the population that thinks they are messing with the gambling gods," said veteran Las Vegas oddsmaker Tony Sinisi.

As for the Giants, they are taking everything in stride.

"My reaction is this, our entire organization, from the Mara and Tisch families down, is focused on one thing: winning one game," said Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon.

The Post had no luck contacting David Johanson, the attorney who applied for the New England trademarks on Jan. 17. The woman who answered his telephone yelled, "We can't talk about this!" and hung up.

Several hours later, Pats spokesman Stacey James called to say the trademark filing was to protect profits, and is not a pre-emptive writing of history.

"These are defensive tactics taken so people can't brand with our logo," he said.

The "19-0" trademark has not yet been approved.

And all James had to say about his team's patent-office prophecy was: "I am confident that we are 18-0 and we play on Sunday."

For many sports watchers, the Pats' trademark application harked back to Pat Riley's days as coach of the Los Angeles Lakers.

In 1989, he trademarked the phrase "three-peat" in hopes of cashing in on bringing his team to a third consecutive championship.

His team failed, but ultimately Riley hit a royalties windfall anyway when the Chicago Bulls hit the "three-peat" in 1993.

Riley made a lot of money off the three-peat.

The funny thing is that, unlike Riley, if the team fails they will never be able to cash in.

I got my witch doctor guide. I'm going to put a curse on on the Pats. Does anybody have any cramp bark or any pigmy mice tail?

That darn Kroger doesn't carry anything.

It's good business to plan ahead like that. What's the problem?

Remember 2001? They were all upset because Cowher let his players plan their trips to the Super Bowl before the AFCCG. It's basically the same thing. Add to this that Boston already has the parade planned. Karma, and I hope its bite hard New England!

People seem to forget the 12 pt. underdog 1997 Broncos and the 12-14 pt. underdog........yep, 2001 New England Patriots. Granted they're 18-0 but that does not guarantee a win.

GO GIANTS!!!

Oh C'mon tony. I'm sure you've watched football long enough to know the smell of an upset. Look at our beloved Steelers in 05'. Personally, from what I've seen and heard, everyone expects the Pats to go in there, roll over the Giants, and go home with the trophy (period) The Superbowl is motivation enough, but throw in all this other garbage and I have no doubt the Giants will be coming with a vengence. I feel it in my bones....Hopefully Tom Brady and Randy Moss will too.

The Pats are gonna slaughter the Giants. The Pats D is gonna be in Eli's face all day. This is gonna be a blowout. All the Pats have to do is knock Eli around and cover Plax.

Game over.

We'll see about that. The Pats defense hasn't been any sort of unstoppable force this year at all. It's been Brady, Moss and Welker. In fact if it wasn't for Welker they probably aren't 18-0. Like I said, we'll see.

I think everyone is overreacting. You may as well admit the Pats will go 19-0, yes I know you hate it because you are jealous. I also think too much is being made over the whole "spygate" deal. People outside of the Pats fan base hate that we are the class of the NFL, and will do anything to make them look bad. I think everyone should be excited, this is our chance to see football history be made.

Yep, typical bandwagon apologist - I noticed your IP traces to Columbus, Ohio - just jumped off the Bungles bandwagon, I'm guessing? :yawn:

People hated the 90's Cowboys, People hated the 80's Niners, People hated the 70's Steelers, People hated the 60's Packers, People hated the Old-Time Giants and Bears.

But what do those franchises have in common?

They didn't cheat. If calling the Patriots dynasty tainted when there is spygate hanging over them makes me jealous, then I'm by all means jealous. The hell with the Patriots and their M******* fans. If going 19-0 is going to earn respect, you're sorely mistaken. It may get a lot of ass-kissing from ESPN, but America will have none of that. I certainly won't.

If NE wins XLII, congrats to them, but don't expect me to give them any props.

Enjoy it now, because Beliprick and Co. will get theirs. Just watch.

You think the Pats can trademark 18-1 Choke? I'm sure that the 84 Niners and 85 bears wouldn't mind.....

The only "football history" the Cheatriots are going to make today is joining the ranks with the 32 anf 42 Bears by going undefeated and doing the big choke in the Super Bowl.

I guess then CONGRATULTATIONS would be in order :cheer::cheer:

No one is ever jealous of a team who cant get it done. Have a great off season.

19-0 is owned by a doctor in Denver (for the 98 Bronco's who ended up at 16-2). He just renewed it in November (smart guy).

18-1 is owned by the New York Post as a result of Kraft trying to get "19-0."

Anyone want to take the trip to Boston with me? I'm going to collect tears in a jar. So whenever I am sad I can look at them and smile. :banana:
